    Bluntly put, it does not even come close to what is expected from a 3D rendered iOS environment. That said, it is very obvious that the game was a labor of love that is well worth exploring further.

    Farming Simulator 2012 is slow, repetitive, ugly, and dull. But that doesn't mean it's not a relaxing and often addictive little diversion, too.

    This is not a beautiful game, and it's not even a particularly welcoming one either. Despite the simplistic gameplay, there's little in the way of hand-holding on offer: how exactly to sell crops, what the icons on the mini-map represent, how to transfer goods from combine to trailer and so on.

    Turning your vehicles relies on motion controls, which might be alright for fast-paced racers, but for the intricate business of lining up trailers under silos and such it's a massive hindrance. [Nov 2012, p.92]

    Farming Simulator 2012 provides a slower pace to gameplay, but the controls make it more frustrating than relaxing.

    Being cheap as it is, you at least enjoy the trashyness of the Farming Simulator 2012. But you hear that from someone loving trashy films like „Rubber“ about killing tires. If you want to enjoy the game for a longer period of time then you have to invest some money which I simply hate about modern games. But if you have to much money and to much time, buy it! Expand
