The sequel to the best-selling worldwide hit "Farming Simulator" has loads of new features!

Assume the role of a farmer experiencing the challenge of 18 hour days running a new farm in the middle of beautiful rolling countryside.
You start the game by choosing from a small collection of vehicles and machinery to explore your fairly sparse farmland which measures just 4 km. As you progress through the game you complete a variety of tasks like breeding and feeding the cows or spreading manure, milking, plowing, seeding and baling to build up wealth to invest in newer and better equipment and machinery.
Multi-player mode allows you to manage your farm together with friends over the Internet or local area network.
With career mode you take on the role of a young farmer and experience the workaday life of the countryside in a completely adaptable world.
Choose from loads of authentic licensed farming equipment including tractors, combine harvesters, plows, seeders and balers.
Thanks to the licensing of machinery from leading manufacturers including DEUTZ-FAHR, KRONE, HORSCH, PÖTTINGER and VOGEL & NOOT you are able to take control of authentic farming equipment.

Farming Simulator is by far my favourite franchise!
The reasons are:

1- Its absolutly relaxing gameplay, the closest you can get to nature without leaving the house.
2- It is by far the most deep game that can still be played "passivly", meaning you can fullfil other life duties such as reading/ studying and still enjoy this game in the background.
3- Has enough activities to engage you when you have more time and choose to play more "activly".
4- Even provides multiplayer to enjoy with friends!
5- Very educational for urban people like me who never even knew a thing or 2 about farming.

I will gladly recommend all the versions even today: 2011, 2013, 2015 every game has a set of achievments and the older it is the more basic the gameplay is. So if you are new to the franchise you can happily start from the oldest one but if you are looking for eye candy of course the newer look better ;)

I would say that I like this game. The economy is relatively robust, there's some fun time-keeping challenges in keeping everything balanced, and there's a good bit of variety in vehicles/ crops/ activities/ etc. The graphics aren't great (crops will pop in when you're about 10 meters away, despite being able to render the buildings and mountains in the far distance), but I'll admit, they do the job. On the whole, it has a lot going for it. Except for the controls. Every time I've opened the game the controls have, to some degree, randomized, including at one point, mapping one of the buttons for activating a key tool to the button for turning left. This was the most annoying example, and the first I came across, but there have been plenty of other occurences of two completely separate functions (e.g. changing what crop you sow, and activating the machine that sows fields) to the same button, or with functions completely missing. If this was the first week of the game's release, I'd let it pass, but not in a game that came out in 2010.

TL;DR

Good game ruined by badly coded controls

Very cool game if you can get it to work! I can play it on my laptop no problem, but when I try to play it on my PC with HDMI the game engine stops working! I am a big fan of Farming Simulator but can only play the 2011 version on laptop because I cannot afford a new PC or laptop to play 2013 or 2015! I bought the Farming Simulator 2013 for my PS3 and have spent over 100 hours on it but it is limited and cannot play online. It would be nice if this issue was fixed so I can play it on my desk top! I paid for all the extras for the game but cannot play it. Please fix the engine so I can play the game I paid for! Thanks!

This is the game you wanted your entire life. It's probably the best game ever made. Don't believe me? Ok then, take a look at these amazing features this game offers:

*4 different crop types. Ever wanted to have a variety in your farming sim games? This is where it's at. It can't get any better than this.
*Cows. With the new motion-track technology, these cows are probably the most detailed you will ever see. They move, eat and do other stuff just like in real life. It's 100% accurate!
*Next-next-gen graphics. With all these kids playing their Xbox One's and PS4's, talking about the "next-gen graphics", they don't know that Giants Software already did it. These stunning graphics have been considered to be even more realistic than real-life itself!
*Atmosphere. You can spend hours sitting in your tractor, listening to nature sounds, watching the beautiful scenery with those realistic animations.
*Multiplayer. Ever wanted to have a farm with friends or family? Now you can! With all the features listed above, you can just keep playing this game and never even stop! This is currently the only multiplayer game that has been proven to have absolutely zero connection issues and no lag!
*Perfectly balanced. While other farming games can be a little unrealistic with money, crops and other things, this game is balanced, so everyone can have fun while playing the most realistic game ever!

Still not convinced? Read again!

10/10 would play forever.
