Farming Simulator 20 won't be for everyone, but if you're after high-octane, instant gratification, why are you sniffing around something called 'Farming Simulator 20'? It requires time and devotion – if you're not one to enjoy the long, languorous journey you'd be better off sticking to more abstract farming sims. Once you get into its low-key repetitive groove, though, there's a wealth of wholesome, calming work to get lost in and a satisfying flow to cultivating a field, sowing seeds, harvesting, repeating and watching those numbers go up.
Farming Simulator 20 is a good simulator of what a farmer's life offers and all the work involved. Its large amount of content and improvements offers us a title that, although not suitable for all players, can give many hours of fun.
THIS GAME IS TOO EXPENSIVE!!! This game costed $45.00 on Eshop. Although it is for mobile like FS 2018, 2018 had similar features and was under $10.00. I quickly realized it was a waist of money after I bought it. It is also obvious that FS 17 had A LOT more features and was CHEEPER!!! This game is a waist of money, and if you are looking for a mobile FS game, DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY. Instead, by FS 18 or even FS 16, and you will get a MUCH better bang for your buck.
First let me qualify by telling you I have been playing FS games on mobile and console since FS14 was released on Android. I am a huge fan of the series and have never been disappointed by a series release... Until now. This game is six bucks on the play store... I spent $45 in the switch eShop for the same exact game. I regret it immensely. Do yourself a favor and buy Farming Simulator: Switch Edition. This release is a waste of your time.
Farming Simulator 20 drives smoothly on the Nintendo Switch. Mainly being a game where you are only basically in the cockpit of your vehicle it isn't difficult in anyway to navigate especially since you can touch your screen to move your camera however draw distance on the Nintendo Switch seems very limited. It is difficult to enjoy a simulator if I am unable to see where my next task is turning my sessions of Farming Simulator 20 into a guessing game fairly quickly which is no fun at all. This version of Farming Simulator plays out like an after thought that needs drastic improvement as a "mobile console" title.
Farming Simulator 20 is a bit of a disappointment. As a newcomer to the series, I couldn’t manage to find a hook to keep me playing before I was overwhelmed by the poorly explained gameplay loop, and with the draw distance as bad as it is, I can’t imagine long-time fans of the series having a good time on Switch either. Agriculture is the backbone of society, but Farming Simulator 20 will not be the backbone of the Switch’s library any time soon.
In its current state, I have a hard time recommending Farming Simulator 20 for the Nintendo Switch. If this is a title you just can't pass up, get the iOS or Android version and save a lot of money. Maybe GIANTS will consider throwing Nintendo a bone when Farming Simulator 21 is released.
Either keep playing Farming Simulator Switch, or play Farming Simulator 18 on your phone or tablet. Both of these games are better than this overpriced mobile game.
You can literally spend 1/10th what Nintendo is charging to play it on a mobile **** I wouldn’t recommend it since it’s horrendously optimized for mobile.
It’s almost as if they didn’t know whether to make a Switch game and port it to phones, or make a mobile game and port it to Switch, and after removing features from the both mobile and Switch FS, they settled on making a single game that’s universally bad.
This release epitomizes a game developer taking steps back. But hey, if GameFreak can do it, so can Giants.
I had high hopes for this release after the, imo, great port of FS17 to the switch. I wasn't really expecting a $45 mobile game. If you are looking for a more complete farm sim feel, get Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition. It's cheaper and closer the the pc and console versions.
I am a superfan of Giants Software Farming SImulator series, but this is a huge step backwards! This game costs $45, more than Farming Simulator 19, but lacks a lot of features. There isn't much to do in this game. First, there isn't enough equipments to work with. When your farm is big, you can only hire 4 helpers! Second, you can't even exit your vehicles to walk around and go to sleep. Third, you can only have 3 savegames, and there is NO MULTIPLAYER like FS 19. In this game, many equipments and key gameplay elements are missing. It would be much better if Giants ported FS 19 to the Switch. My tip: Avoid this game, that's all I can say!
I feel robbed. Just no radio is a deal breaker for me. Also, Giants software didn't give a damn for the users and just squeezed the mobile port right into switch. If they could port FS2017 to switch, 20 should have been possible as well. I wouldn't have mind slightly worse graphics and instead would've preferred a true port of fs2019. I even read comments in various forums, where some devs actually rebuked users having negative criticism of the game. The devs just barked on the users that it's not easy to port games on switch. Well then maybe they shouldn't.
The worse part is that they just slapped a mobile app version of FS on a switch cartridge and charged 10 times more price, for the same app that you can buy cheap on any mobile store.
It's pathetic, and I will make sure that this company will never get any more of my money ever in the future.
Can't exit vehicles and walk around as a human. AI workers can't be given waypoints to go to. Can't give AI workers orders to refill gas or deliver crops. Overall downgrade in gameplay from previous versions. Minor graphics upgrade not worth the hassle. Nintendo's Eshop refund policy is a flat out "no refunds" I will refrain from any future purchases from the eshop. I will also refrain from any purchases from this developer until such a time as the game is patched since I unfortunately now own the game for life. Gamestop can have my money in the future since buying ised seems to be the way to go...
