    Farming Simulator 15 earns a strong recommendation for both series fans and farming enthusiasts.

    Farming Simulator 15 is the best agricultural simulation on the market, with some flaws that prevent it to excel.

    Again, Farming Simulator 15 is an excellent sim that offers a lot of content at a pretty high quality. The makers do need to step it up a bit when it comes to certain elements.

    For all its flaws, Farming Simulator 2015 is the latest, best entry in an exceedingly niche genre, a reasonable improvement on the last entry, and perhaps a change of scenery if you’re sick of the sight of alien spaceships and chest-high walls.

    Overall, the new Farming Simulator could have been so much better. On our wish list for a next installment are a reasonable campaign to improve accessibility and ... a radio. It is time that we hear more than just the loud tractor hum, but also the country radio.

    Farming Simulator 15 has some improvements, lots of things remain unchanged, and some are even worse than before. Woodcutting and prettier graphics are welcome additions but a ton of simple programming mistakes and a comical driving model cast a shadow on all the good things. As usual - the game is uneven and many parts of the gameplay need to be fixed. Still, fans should be pleased.

    It’s not difficult to see why people would seek a more relaxing game after having their senses barraged with endless gun-toting violence, but this game doesn’t offer the video game equivalent of a week spent dozing in a hammock on an Aruban beach; it’s an exhaustingly dull weekend in the Scandinavian countryside with only chickens and low-poly civilians for company.

I'm not a grind-gamer by nature, so it's a mystery as to why I will sit for hours on end, drinking coffee and grinding away at fields. But sit I do, pot upon pot of coffee, field upon field of wheat, canola, a little corn to fill the bunkers. I can't really classify it as boring. I guess if you have a technical nature like I do you will find the machinery interesting.
    I live in a farm county and never payed much attention to the tractors and such roaming the fields nearby, mainly because I'm not a farmer. But now I notice all of them as I drive by. Passing the local equipment supplier, I find myself thinking "Hey, they have a 10.9 in the yard. I wonder if they have the large header for it. I'd like to climb inside and push buttons." and "why don't they make those manure spreaders larger?"
    Learning, I guess is what draws myself to this. I've spent a bit of time on the net looking up details of the machinery, how they function, etc. Even the growth cycle of corn.
    Do I recommend this for everyone? No. Action junkies will probably not like it. If you like making artificial money in an artificial world and get some sense of accomplishment from it, you probably will like it.

    I love this game because there is a general lack of hormone filled children who all want to get the best k/d ratio in the world. All of theI love this game because there is a general lack of hormone filled children who all want to get the best k/d ratio in the world. All of the negatives are right, but then... not all games are shooting for exact realism. Especially when you consider fs15's price point. This game is way less disappointing than Watch_Dogs, and many other huge titles from studios with hundreds of millions of dollars to pour into a game. It isn't supposed to be a graphical masterpiece. It isn't supposed to be a showcase for advanced cutting edge AI. It's supposed to be a game where you build communities who are interested in mid sized farming operations. This is a modder's playground. Not many companies are willing to open their games up, and support the modding community the way FS15 has done. Allowing modders to tow the line with respect to most of the aspects of the game... is kind of the point. I always loved games where you had a hand in actually improving, or advancing the game somehow. Plus, the developers actually DO listen to the community. If you don't want that experience; a perfectly rounded cutting edge title, then this game isn't for you. Expand

There's no significant goals, no meaningful challenge, multiple equipment mechanics don't work properly, and the translation tends to be half-assed in places. This is basically a nicer-looking skeleton desperately hoping for modders to fill in all the blanks. Expand

    I have put well over a hundred hours of gameplay into this, and I use it to de-stress after work. My issue with this game is that it callsI have put well over a hundred hours of gameplay into this, and I use it to de-stress after work. My issue with this game is that it calls its self a farming "simulator", but it is as close to farming as Mario Kart is to a driving simulator. It lacks any real challenges that a real farmer has, and if not for debt to the bank, there is no challenge to the game at all. It cannot even be called a game once the debts are paid as there is NO opposition. It confuses farming with ranching, logging, and power generation. It also includes unrelated seek and find games (hunt for coins?) for additional entertainment. From the time fields are seeded it takes around three days for harvesting even when plant growth is set to the slowest setting (now that should end world hunger!). Weather has no effect on plants, and only prevents harvesting during rain/snow, but has no effect on yield its self. There is nothing to do with money once all fields are purchased, and there is no longer any need to buy more equipment. There is no end game either.
    I do love the graphics, and the fact people can create, and add their own mods (nice!). It is family friendly and possible to co-op parents with kids together as a family game time. I enjoy the offline gameplay, as I am not always in an area where there is Wi-Fi. There is a nice variety of crop choices to utilize a variety of machinery.
    I just wish that all crops could be available in the same game without moding them in, i.e.; orchards, grains, fruits, and vegetables, and a better and more diverse market place to buy and sell, including all types of fertilizers, seed, etc.
    I think this "game" is poorly thought out as a simulator, and only onced over as a "game". It seems to be a forum for tractor manufacturers to display their equipment and to people who may be interested to hopefully print out their logos to pin up on walls.
    Farming Simulator is a wonderful opportunity to educate and inform people just how complex, and difficult farming really is, even with todays technology. It can demonstrate why the fluctuations in food prices in the market, and why farmers always seem poor. As the game is now, just after a few weeks (game time), I was earning $1,000,000.00 a day as a power generator and not even farming. NOT REALISTIC! I would've retired after just a couple weeks and moved to the Bahamas. Farming is hard work, but this game does not even suggest that. If the "Simulator" was dropped from the name, and just called "Farming 2015", now that is more appropriate for what you have here. I wouldn't be able to wait for the 2016 release to see just how much easier it will be in the future. Maybe there will be robotic tractors, so I can do even less.
    As I simulator I give it a 2 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best)
    As arcade entertainment (not a game) I give it a 8 on a scale of 1-10 (again 10 the best)
    So I averaged the scores to a 5.
