This is a great game!
This game is one of my favorite simulation games ive ever played!
Day 1: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 2: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 3: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 4: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 5: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 6: You finally have enough money to buy that long coveted field... Oh look here is a cool looking tractor.. lets buy it!
Day 7: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
I'm sure you get the pattern...

Pros:
Steering Control and Camera angles are perfect
Somewhat realistic looking tractors
You can turn off crop withering
Maps are perfect size
Easily Moddable (And I mean lotsssss of mods)
Income system works great
Terrain on the starter maps is perfect
Graphics are great
You can hire workers to harvest for you

Cons:
Gameplay is somewhat unrealistic (You run into a car going 40mph and you bounce back)
Headlights are kind of glitchy at night time
Speed is slightly unrealistic

Its a great game! I definately reccommend it. The Pros outway the Cons

Love the game, but to call it a simulator is not correct. As a former dairy farmer I can say that if it was this easy in real life, I`d still be doing it...
I`m sure that if I jump in my tracktor right now (Case IH 2007) and steer it into a brick wall that would be the end of that tracktor. AND ever so often it needs service, I cant just drive and drive forever on it. This "simulator" lacks the realism of real life farming and shuld therfore be called a farming/driving/arcade game!
But still, Its a great GAME that I can reccomend to all who is interestet in farming.

Originally I figured this would be boring, how much fun can farming be, seriously? I was wrong, graphics are awesome, game play is as close to real life as you can get, and having grown up on a farm, the realism is just crazy. This game is strangley addictive, I can stop playing. The modding community for this game is awesome, some of the mods that are available (and more coming every day) are just mind blowing.

Definitely worth the money, in fact I've even considered buying the previous version just to play it and see how things have evolved.

If you like machines this is a great buy! But get some friends to play with, it's much more fun!. Playing with an xbox-controller is recomended when logging. I would recommend this game!
Pros
-Lots of machines, trailers etc to buy.
-Many mods.
-The overall feeling when playing is fantastic, you are your own little farmer.

Cons
-When plowing or cultivating a field, it's just a plain texture that changes. Nothing exciting realy.
-The graphics aren't the best. Especially the lightning.
-The AI get stuck in trees sometimes.
-Need friends

I wish that they could implement the mud from spintires for the next game.

This game is so much fun!!!! but.....
It's too easy to get money from cutting down trees. You can simply plant trees like PIR(I don't remember the nam) next to the lumber station, and cut down it with your chainsaw, grab it up with a whatever vehicle and bring it to the pond to sell it. You can get 40k~90k from each tree, and it only cost 7k to plant a tree. It's like ATM machine where you don't have to grow crops anymore, just sit there and cut trees then you can be miliionare!
BTW, there're some bugs occured. When you try to cut down a tree with a chainsaw, if you are aiming it too low, the chainsaw will cut into the ground and the game will crash.
Anyways, the game itself is compatibly realistic, I would recommend it if certain bug can be fixed.

Giants software mad a really nice game. You can really see they listened to the community by adding forestry and making a better map (the map looks like it has things that the community made in maps like more mountains and tight roads). Graphics are much better and so are the physics.

The game has a lot of stuff to buy and play around with and if you don't want to wait until you have enough money for that there's always mods to download wich let you change your money. :) Though I don't recommend doing that cause I think it'll take away the fun of getting further in the game. Getting enough money to buy new stuff is what keeps the game fun in my opinion, cause you'll find yourself doing a lot of the same stuff over and over. You can hire workers wich I really recommend.

The game has a lot of mods which you can install by dragging the zip file to your mods folder (shouldn't be hard at all).

The multiplayer works pretty okay. I didn't play it much but though there can be some lagg and when someone joins the game has to sync which makes you unable to do anything for a short time, the multiplayer still can be a lot of fun and I can imagine you could have a lot of fun when you're playing on your own server with people that live nearby (better connection).

Over all I recommend this game if you like simulation and farming, but if you only like games with a lot of action, then I wouldn't recommend buying this game. :)

+ Graphics and physics are improved
+ Map is (in my opinion) improved
+ Lots of things to buy like tractors, trucks, tippers, etc.
+ Lots of mods which are easy to install

- Multiplayer laggs a bit for me and has to sync the game when someone joins
- Gameplay can be a bit repetitive

8,5/10

Hope this helped :)

First off all: This game is incredibly fun and relaxing.

You'd think it is super boring, but it really is not. Hell, I thought it was ♥♥♥♥ before I got it but it is so fun. There's a huge variety of machinery that you can buy, two very nice maps and tons of ways to earn your money. The physics engine is okay, pulling stuff up a hill feels rough at times and I think some tractors or combines slow down too much when pulling stuff up a hill (A 1100 PS Krone combine can't pull 50.000L silage up a ≈10° inclination for example), but after all the feeling when driving a vehicle is pretty okay, it feels similar to Euro Truck Simulator 2 in some aspects.

The multiplayer is a blast aswell. Everything is more fun with friends, from managing your farm over harvesting your crop to fooling around with a Telehandler. It's great.

I can really recommend this, It might not be everyones cup of tea, so before buying you should probably watch a gameplay video or two but if you like simulators, this is a good game for you.

This the the ultimate sequel to Farming Sim 2K13. This game has soo much more than the last game and they have fixed many of the bugs in 2013. However the bad things about this game is gravity for cars and tractors is like zilch, even with weights. The second problem i have with it, is the AI is still absolute ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥♥ like the last game, no sense of awareness... Oh well. Anyway, very good game, heaps of fun, great with friends cause u can blitzkrieg a field with ur combine harvesters in like 30 seconds even if its ♥♥♥♥in huge! 8/10

The krauts have truly stepped up their game with this one. They've added the classic "lizard: piqup truck" and chainsaws so you can chop down those pesky green ♥♥♥♥s. All in all better than the last one via gameplay and visuals solid 8/10 from me. Get some bros and get farming.

English:

A true successor to the series, although I must admit I am somewhat disappointed. It is still as addictive, but it is also still more of a leasure game rather than a simulator. They did manage to combine both Farming Simulator and Woodcutter Simulator into 1 game...but I'm not so sure how I feel about that...

The player takes on the role of a farmer, with substantial equipment and monetary resources already available as you start. As you try to make money you will find that it is pretty hard to go bankrupt, and before you know it you have the fields and equipment that justify the huge farm complex that you start off with. Then you notice that your equipment is getting dirty, which is a great addition to the game, even though it is only a visual effect and does not affect the way equipment is handling.

I have stated in previous versions how the game could really become a proper Farming Simulator, and I have read similar comments in the forums and from other players since, but apparently the developers haven't picked up on that; There is no crop disease, so whatever you put into the ground, it will come out healthy and ready to harvest, always. There is no soil quality, it is always in mint condition and the only purpose for manure and sprayers is to double / triple the yield. On top of that, you start off with a rediculous large farm complex that isnt justified by the 1 - 3 fields you also start off with.
The community has made some interesting mods that solve some of these problems, but I'd rather see them in the vanilla game.

For those that are familiar with the previous versions, here are some nuisances you'll encounter:
First off, remember the PDA? That little device in the bottom-left corner of the screen that showed you a map, demand, livestock info and all that? Ya, you now have to press I which will open an screen and pause the game. This is not much of a problem per se, but do you also remember the phones, where you can get information about just about anything, like a manual? When you interact with that you get a similar screen, but the game continues on the background. Which means that if you don't have the equipment to do something while your crops are growing, you will either have to go on a long strawl or read every page at the payphone; No more checking demand, livestock, etc while you watch your favourite handyman take the wheel of your combine...

All in all a good game, but in my opinion it still does not live up to its name, and the developers seem to have other things on their minds than adding more interesting game mechanics.

Dispite all of this ranting I cannot help but give this a thumbs up, because it is true to its legacy, addictive as hell, and it looks great without ruining the game (hint to Egosoft).

-------------------------------------------------------------

Nederlands:

Een waardige opvolger van de serie, hoewel ik to moet geven dat ik enigszins teleurgesteld ben. Het is nog steeds verslavend, maar ook meer een nutteloos tijdsverdrijf dan een echte simulator. Ze hebben het voor elkaar gekregen om Farming Simulator samen te voegen met hun Woodcutter Simulator...maar ik weet niet hoe ik daar over denk op dit moment...

De speler stapt in de rol van een boer, met veel werktuigen en financiele bronnen beschikbaar al vanaf dat je begint. Terwijl je probeert wat geld te verdienen kom je er snel achter dat het moeilijk is om failliet te gaan, en voor je het weet heb je de velden en de werktuigen die passen bij het formaat van je erf en de gebouwen die er al sinds het begin staan. Dan valt het je op dat je werktuigen vies worden, een goeie toevoeging aan het spel, hoewel dit slechts esthetisch is en geen enkele werking heeft op de werktuigen.

Ik heb in recencies van vorige versies al aangegeven hoe het spel een echte Farming Simulator kan worden, en ik heb sindsdien soortgelijke opmerkingen in forums en recensies van andere spelers gezien, maar blijkbaar hebben de ontwikkelaars daar niets mee gedaan; Je planten kunnen niet ziek worden, dus wat je ook in de grond stopt, het komt er altijd kerngezond uit. Er is geen grondkwaliteit, het is altijd in perfecte staat en het enige doel van de mest en sproeiers is het verdubbelen / verdrievoudigen van je oogst. Daar komt nog bij dat je met een belachelijk grote boerderij begint die niet overeen komt met de 1-3 velden waarme je begint.
Er zijn een aantal interessante mods gemaakt door de spelers die veel van deze problemen oplossen, maar ik zou het spel liever aangepast zien worden zodat het niet nodig zou zijn.

Voor hen die bekend zijn met de vorige versies, hier zijn wat irritaties die je tegen zult komen:
Ten eerste, ken je de PDA nog? Dat kleine apparaatje links ondering je scherm waarop je de kaart, prijzen, je veestapel enzo kon vinden? Ja, die is dus weg. Nu moet je op I drukken om een venster te zien waar datzelfde beschikbaar is, alleen wordt het spel gepauzeerd. Dit is niet per se een probleem, maar herinner je je de telefoons nog waar je informatie over alles kon vinden als een soort handleiding? Als je daar nu gebruik van maakt krijg je een soortgelijk scherm, maar het spel blijft op de achtergrond doorgaan. Dit betekent dat als je geen werktuigen hebt om jezelf mee te vermaken terwijl je velden aan het bloeien zijn je je of dood verveelt terwijl je wacht, een lange wandeling moet gaan maken of elke pagina in de telefoon moet gaan lezen; Niet meer kijken wat de huidige prijzen zijn of het voedsel niveau van je veestapel controleren terwijl je je favoriete knecht achter het stuur van je combine laat.

Al met al een goed spel, maar naar mijn mening is het nog steeds de naam niet waardig, en de ontwikkelaars hebben iets anders aan hun hoofd dat interessante spel mechaniek.

Ondanks al dit geklaag kan ik het niet helpen dit product aan te raden, omdat het in de lijn van de serie valt, verslavend als wat is en er grafisch geweldig uitziet zonder dat dat ten koste gaat van het spel (hint naar Egosoft).
