    The Farming Simulator series is one that a lot of people are very fond of, especially with Farming Simulator 2017. With 2019 I believe all of those people are going to make the transition and find a whole new love for the series.

    Farming Simulator 19 lets the player live all the ups and downs of the rural life. Quality and quantity of vehicles, animals and crops is outstanding, while everything else seems a bit shallow. As always, this is a nice simulator game and it can also be addictive.

    The presence of a huge park of means and instruments, possibly extensible through mod, does nothing more than increase the sense of freedom and fulfillment derived from the achievement of its goals.
  4. Farming Simulator 19 has beautiful and realistic gameplay mechanics. However, we can't see different gameplay mechanics in the new game compared to the previous game.

    Farming Simulator 19 is… just another Farming Simulator game. Slight changes include new graphics, horses and John Deere machines. It’s still the best farming simulator around, with all the strengths and weaknesses of its predecessors, but you won’t miss much if you skip it.

    The Farming Simulator series is a true, if somewhat baffling, phenomenon. I guess the only other game that receives equally huge vote of confidence from the players would be Star Citizen. The developers are currently doing less than the modders. Farming Simulator 19 is great if you're new to the series. If not - think twice before you buy.

    Farming Simulator 19's new features do push the series in the right direction, but more needs to be done next time around. The old flaws have to be rooted out so a truly fresh new experience can grow.

Like all games FS19 has its flaws, although for the most part it is a thoroughly enjoyable game to sit down and unwind after a days work. The fun of this game exists as much in the game as well as out of the game in the different groups on FB and Reddit.
    When I comes to the different mods for the game, the possibilities are infinite. The level of the in game vehicles and implements is high, but when modding groups get going the real world details that are included blow my mind.
    As a kid that grew up on a farm but unfortunately does not farm as an adult, this game give the user a somewhat accurate representation of what some aspects of a day on a farm entail.
    I highly recommend this game looking for a stress free, fun and easy game to pass some free time.

I have an i7 7700k and a 1080ti and I have experienced no issues. The graphics engine I understand is new but it doesn't look that distinctive from fs17. The gameplay is pretty much the same and there are enough new things and changes to satisfy my opinion of this being a fully fledged new game.

    For those with medium or low end PC's I would advise to let a few optimize updates make their way in, unless you want to turn down some of the more fancy graphics settings. The only thing I have spotted on my game that was weird is the shadows updating every 2 seconds where it flicks from one set of shadows to another. It is very noticeable but not enough for me to want to put it down.

    8/10 for now but I've only put in a few hours so far. But as with FS17 and the ones before it, the gameplay never really goes backward so a few hours of play gives enough knowledge to form a reasonable opinion to score it.

    This is a review of the game from some one who has done about 400 hours on Farming Simulator 17 and now about 20 hours on Farming Simulator 19This is a review of the game from some one who has done about 400 hours on Farming Simulator 17 and now about 20 hours on Farming Simulator 19 Platinum Edition on XBox One platform. My take right now is that 17 was more fun. I'd say it's unlikely I'll ever build anything on 19 like the spectacular operations I've put together on 17.

    One of the things that made 17 enjoyable was the wide variety of mods that made tedious elements of the game more bearable. The 64,000 liter feed mixer for one is missing from 19 and there's little likelihood that I'll even bother to raise cattle with out it. Because with the 32K liter mixer and a herd of 500 cattle you'll sit down to play your game and each and every time spend about 2 hours doing nothing but mixing feed. It really gets old. I could get by with less cattle but i play these sims to stretch the limits of the agriculture. How much livestock can all the fields support? If I can't have a huge herd I don't want to build one at all. The cattle also require a great deal of hay, straw and grass. In 17 great mods exist for building high-capacity silos to store anything but silage. And you don't really need the modded silos for silage because you're allowed to place bunker silos for that. But in 19 there is absolutely no way to store grass except by dumping it out on the ground.

    Horses are welcome but to get the full value of selling them you have to ride, groom, and feed each one. Not the market scenario I wanted. And not a realistic one.

    Essentially 19 has taken out of the game things that made the game somewhat easier. In that way they have answered critics who said 17 was too easy and it is getting back to basics. But it also removed some of the fun from the experience. The BSM 70,000 liter tipper mod is gone, but there's an even larger tipper available standard now at 770000. Which is welcome. Unfortunately, the Krone Big M500 Mower is missing. Another reason why I won't even try to raise cattle in Farming Simulator 19. The John Deere equipment is welcome. But you'd expect their harvester to be the best. It's not. I haven't been able to check out their Cotton package yet.

    There seems to be more credit at the bank in Farming Simulator 19. I've already borrowed 375K and I don't think I'm tapped out yet.

    I've taken the starting position in 19 where you have some buildings and several tiny fields. One of the first things I put together was a logging outfit with the Fliegl trailer. Because timber was an important part of my early game in 17. But 19 is not friendly to timber. The log hook for tractor is horrible but with practice you can make it work for you. The double hook mod is not available in 19. You can only cut trees near your property and there is no abundance of nice, tall pines to cut. Instead, there are nuisance trees that grow in gnarled shapes and are difficult and cumbersome to remove. But an opportunity exists to greatly expand your fields from this starting position by getting a plow and carving them out. I was able to double the size of Field 19 and so it is satisfying in a tougher game to be carving something out from scratch. Disappointing is that the payout for timber in 19 is only about 50% of what it was in 17. It's not a profitable activity unless you plant new trees yourself. It took me 12 hours of game play just to remove those big, gnarled trees. And I only got about $60,000 in timber income after clearing the field extensions. It was a pathetic pay-out for all that work. Really the only reason to own a logging operation in the game is to clear lands for development..

    Contract work in 17 was lucrative and was also an important part of my early game. I won't be doing a single lick of contract work in 19 because it just doesn't pay enough. When I harvested the largest field for another farmer in 17 I got a $100K pay check with bonus. In 19 the largest contract I'm being offered is $30,000 and almost all the other pay outs are far less than that. And now you must not only do the harvesting but deliver the goods. If you've done root crops in previous installments you must know just how ridiculous that requirement is. I'm not delivering root crops for anyone.. There is also a glitch in the game where you can make an error and not get paid for your work because of a delivery problem. The AI will say with a prompt that crops are missing so you don't get paid. So working for other farmers in 19? Do yourself a favor and forget it. Work on your own farm.

    There is opportunity for joining fields in 19 but the developers saw fit to make the largest desirable fields into weird oblong shapes. Perhaps they've fixed the bug but in 17 AI helpers struggle with any field not shaped in a perfect rectangle or square. In 17 the large fields met that requirement. Not so in 19.

Other than that the game physics need a good bit of work took a mild turn at 7mph on level ground and tractor and trailer roll over like they were hit with a wrecking ball. Vehicles other than yours can not be moved, got tarped in a street after I clipped a pole and the ai driver just parked right up on the trailer and my tractor stuck had to disable traffic to even have a hope of getting unstuck. Hired an AI to plow a field and it just drove off straight without stopping. Has a Bail grabber for square bails none of the bailers make square bails. The bailer with a built-in wrapping machine will not wrap the bails. The trailers do not always register what you put in them so it can take forever just to try and sell your goods. I like the fact the game has multiple start modes but would be nice when they start you with a loan that they tell you you have one. No way to get a vehicle unstuck but to sell it. Ai get stuck on everything, nor will they do the task you want them to half the time. Most of the time for an AI to do what you tell them you have to be currently doing it yourself. You can tell the game is set up to pull up next to the field and get an Ai to work just never dose, only says a worker has completed work without doing anything at all. I got the game for free and it has been nothing but a head ace the whole time. Bail grabber for frontloaders and the one on the logging truck are as useful as the ones in one of the ripoff claw machines at wall-mart. A lot of the controls are not intuitive at all. Disconnecting what you want to form a machine is a crapshoot if it has more than one thing hooked to it. You can switch between attachments but you never know what you are switching to or from. So far my experience has been nothing but poor execution on pretty much every thing. Expand

Buggy to the max on release. Trying to get controllers to work correctly is a nightmare. Game crashes on basic elements of gameplay. Harvesters won't allow you to go from one grain to another without restarting game, etc, etc. Basically, another failure of Giants testing. Year after year this company fails to test releases. JD should feel mighty proud to put their reputation for quality on this brand. Expand
