    Farming Simulator 17 is excellent, and has already become my number one go-to “Zen game”. If I’ve had a stressful day, or if I’m just feeling particularly anxious, I can stick Netflix on and quietly tend to my perfect little farm. With its attention to detail, wonderful environments and depth of simulation, if a quiet, relaxing time looking after a farm is something you’d be interested in, you’d be hard-pressed to find something that better fits the bill than this.

    Farming Simulator 17 combines the simulation of life in the fields to an economic farm management. The result of this combination is a good game, despite a non perfect net code and some minor bugs.

    Despite all the simplifications (e.g. plants need just a couple of days to grow) there’s something addictive about FS17 that makes you switch off your thinking and just farm, farm, farm. [01/2017, p.59]

    With over 250 vehicles and equipment, Farming Sim 17 is bigger and better than ever. Although it’s still not going to be a game for everybody, this edition is more accessible and complete than ever before. Gamers that have no interest in slow-paced repetitive gameplay will likely be disappointed, but for those that enjoyed the previous games will find that there’s just about enough new features to justify a purchase.

    While not exactly fun in the traditional sense, FS 17 can be a very satisfying way to pass the time. [Issue#258, p.64]

    Right now Farming Simulator 17 is the best game for virtual farming rookies. It's simply a good game with a surprisingly good technical side (for this genre, of course) and a quite diverse gameplay. Unfortunately - veterans of the series won't find anything new. Farming Simulator is in the same place it was 2 years ago. It only works better.

    Every moment I was chained to this game was misery, and I wouldn't play it again if they paid me the money instead of the other way around.

However, it seems the developers are are well aware that each of their creations will be considered the best of the genre and use this as an excuse to be lazy, having objects interact with each other in only the most minor of ways. This leads to ridiculous and cartoonish behavior of player controllable vehicles. Not to mention they have a history of charging a lot for minor content DLC. The games feel like a developer taking their audience for granted instead of striving to make their game the best it could be. But at its core, Farming Simulator 17 is thoroughly enjoyable, and does a great job of providing you with the freedom to manage your farm any way you see fit. With a little more work, the next incarnation of this game could take audiences by storm. Expand

Terrain is still in 2d, grass and trees leaves are in 2d too, poor job, they could improve those parameters and the game was perfect Expand
