    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, soIt's difficult to explain the appeal of this game, especially when I don't entirely understand it myself. 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

    I couldn't really get into FS13 but ive got to say this game feels like a massive step up, the user interface looks superbe, the graphics lookI couldn't really get into FS13 but ive got to say this game feels like a massive step up, the user interface looks superbe, the graphics look much improved and the mechanics feel much smoother and more easy going. The biggest addition by far is the ability to pretty much become a lumber jack, cutting and growing trees is great fun, that pretty much sold the game to me and im not regretting my purchase.

    65 Metacritic score seems wholley unfair based on other games rated higher than this that are not as good I would say this is at least a 70 if not a 75 and once mods start getting released it can only get better. Yes this game is not perfect but i think that just adds charm, if you are looking for something relaxing and untaxing this is the perfect game.

    Another mod fested farming simulator. It's just like 13 only has better graphics. Hired help gets caught on things like vehicles passing by orAnother mod fested farming simulator. It's just like 13 only has better graphics. Hired help gets caught on things like vehicles passing by or trees you may have planted. Gets boring very quick when all you can do when low on money is do two different places mowing jobs OR transport pallets from one place to another and get 3,000 $ with a bonus if it's there on time.

    The PDA system is gone and westbridge hills doesn't look much different after the developers have modified it. The tracks tractor's leave behind is nice but i think putting an actual foot print (sinking into the ground and leaving a round tire hole) is far more realistic but this isn't possible to do. The settings are the same as in 13. I think the new billboard for job's is a nice addition, now just need more different job's.

    I guess if the game was made properly it would have redeeming qualities, but in all reality it's just not up to par with actual simulationI guess if the game was made properly it would have redeeming qualities, but in all reality it's just not up to par with actual simulation games to make a good impact on the player. Do not buy this game unless you want to get drunk and have a good time or you want to play a cruel joke on someone. Expand
