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 tractor right now (Case IH 2007) and steer it into a brick wall that would be the end for it. AND ever so often it needs service, I can't just drive and drive forever on it. This "simulator" lacks the realism of real life farming and should therefore be called a farming/driving/arcade game!
But still, Its a great GAME that I can recommend to all who is interested in farming.

Updated 09.04.15:
Hopefully this review update takes care of my unfortunate misspelling of the word "tractor". I live in Norway where our native, and first language is Norwegian, so I`m sorry if my spelling and/or grammar is a bit off when it comes to English.

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.

Even real farmers play Farming Simulator! Whilst it is still a little way from being a simulator in the true sense of the word (for example, gears are not fully simulated, tractors do not show real damage, crops grow too fast and its a bit too easy to make money), nevertheless, the positives far outweigh the negatives, and for every weakness, there are many realistic features. It's great fun if you have any interest in farming and you like the productive strategy type game rather than the fast paced shooters. I worked on a farm many years ago, and I played with Britains farm toys as a kid. This game, 40yr later, allows me to own and drive any type of tractor & implement, and farm any crop, & the physics and graphics are easily good enough to bring back the memories of driving the real thing. Giants also give good support, they updated FS2013 regularly, so I hope to see the same improvements and developments in this one;and they offer good (many free) addon mods form time to time.
It's also very moddable, so if there is an aspect that lets the game down, it is very likely that someone has added a mod to fix it, or else you can do it yourself. For example, it is not difficult to edit the start machinery and funds, or to change growth rate or values to make the game more difficult, or even to create your own map with a bit of learning.
Stand by to be labelled a farm nerd (similar to trainspotter), but that matters not to me. Excellent game, worth at least 8 out of 10 on release, and expecting that to rise with future patches. :)

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 :)

If you like machines and tractors this is a great buy! Play with friends, it's much more fun having a farm together!
Playing with an xbox-controller is recomended when logging. I would really recommend this game! There's tons of mods that just makes the game much better.
When playing online, my friends can join me and our farm. But the save file for the farm is on my computer. So when i'm offline, my friends can't play on our farm. It would be better if you could save your farm as a server in the cloud. So that my friends could join even if i'm offline.
Pros
-Lots of machines, trailers etc to buy.
-Many mods.
-The overall feeling when playing is fantastic, you are your own little farmer.
-Many tractors, trailers etc that you can buy
-The tractors, trailers and machines are very detailed.

The Cons, that I want to be improved in the next game.
-Old graphics. Half Life 2 looks better (Half Life 2 was released 2004..)
-When plowing or cultivating a field, it's just a plain texture that changes. Nothing exciting really.
-The graphics aren't the best. Especially the lightning.
-Need friends


I wish that they could implement the mud from spintires for the next game. That would be awesome!

Pros:
+only farming simulator worth buying;
+adition of forestry;
+7 types of corps;
+lots of vehicles.

Cons:
-poor vehicle grip (feels like driving on ice sometimes);
-you will get bored by sound of vehicles;
-few updates with bug repairs;
-game gets boring after a while.

Final word: I would recommend this game only if you like farming or forestry and if you do not mind poor physics. Music you like is recomended becaose you will want to mute the game after hour of driving.

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
