    Farming Simulator 19 has managed to take a step forward thanks to its graphic renovation that, together with the other options taken from previous deliveries, have managed to make a good game capable of entertaining and engaging new players, but that will be a little short to those who expected great changes and innovations.

    There's something compelling about building up a farming empire. If nothing else, the developers are doing genuinely good work in highlighting a job that we should all be much more aware of. We don't survive without our farmers, after all.

    This year’s version is a competent upgrade for the series. On its own, it stands tall as an excellent farm simulator, packed with features and with a level of complexity carefully hidden under its seemingly simple menus. Giants Software has managed to build on their game series and create an incredibly immersive game.

    Exactly what it needs to be. Its farming sim systems are well balanced and easy to use, and fans will have everything they need to zen out for hours of play. By all other counts, it’s a rough entry point into the genre for newcomers and not the kind of game most people would enjoy as much as the more accessible titles seen in recent years.

    This is a case where more of the same is more than enough, as long as you are okay with self-directed entertainment. Your acreage may vary.

    Realistic to a fault, with a player’s determination tested throughout the game.

    Its incremental improvements will appease fans but it does little to entice new players, in what is still a very dry and demanding sim that’s devoid of character.

(Dude... where are my seed/fertilizer hoppers?) They integrated a lot of new stuff that I really enjoy, mostly speaking about the Farming Management game mode. This is really good for multiplayer when you have friends that are garbage at driving or plowing. They won't mess up your farm this way. It also enables a sense of competitive farming. The graphics only go to 1440p on PS4 Pro and that saddens me. I have a 4K screen and I feel like that is kind of the norm by now. It does still look really good but I feel like it could have been just a tad better. I didn't experience any major glitches or bugs, and the VoIP in-game chat is crystal clear. I don't even need to use the PSN voice party.

    I would definitely like to see some of the popular FS17 mods created for FS19. Again, most notably the placeable seed and fertilizer hoppers.

    Vývojáři ze studia Giant Software si očividně vzali k srdci některé připomínky a prosby hráčů a letošní díl je tak zase o kus dál než ten zVývojáři ze studia Giant Software si očividně vzali k srdci některé připomínky a prosby hráčů a letošní díl je tak zase o kus dál než ten z roku 2017. Absence značky Zetor je sice smutný fakt, ale i bez našich traktorů se jedná o povedené pokračování série. Na to s čím se vytasí konkurence v podobě Pure Farming 2019 si musíme ještě nějakou dobu počkat. GamePress cz Expand

    I have been very disappointed with FS19. I played over 200 hours of FS17 and many hours of FS15 and really enjoyed it. I was looking forwardI have been very disappointed with FS19. I played over 200 hours of FS17 and many hours of FS15 and really enjoyed it. I was looking forward to this game but I don't understand what they are doing. The US map has a very trashy look to it. A trash pile in the middle of my farm land, a trailer home near my farm with a tarp on the roof, a spanish church on the hill that has a busted out wall and tarps on the roof it's like I'm in Fallout 76 or something. The buildings on the farm they start you out with are junky looking and have no use whatsoever. I can't even use my barn for storage it's just a cosmetic barn for $60,000. What reason do I have to keep my $60,000 barn just to look at when I could use that money for farm equipment? FS17 and FS15 had beautiful farm houses which made you feel successful. This farm house is very trashy looking with paint chipping and a trashy looking interior It needs a remodel from Joanna Gains! Fortnite has better looking houses than this. It's cool you can walk inside the house but it is filled with...surf boards...yeah I know farmers and they don't surf. I get that it's supposedly California on the coast but most Americans consider the mid-west location for farming. Also there is a small tutorial at the beginning of the game just like FS17 and other tutorials but not as helpful as the many YouTube videos. Every time I need to figure something out I need to go to YouTube to see how things work and I've played the previous games. The new U.I. menu is not as good as the previous game. It does not even give you the name of the crops in the menu just a picture, kinda hard to figure the difference in a beet and a potato which both are white color in the menu, hard to tell the difference between wheat and barley also with no name under the picture. PROS are I'm glad they now have John Deere and now you can preview your tractor or vehicle before changing the paint or adding special tires. You can also landscape and "paint" the terrain which is very nice also glad for the more realistic weeds during growing. I wish they would have used a better engine to make the game. The Game environment looks like a PS3 or Xbox 360 game. I get that they are an independent studio and that this is on a console but look at The Hunter Call of the Wild for an example on console. They are a small European studio also and The Hunter has 50 square miles of open world in the woods, mountains, creeks also with dynamic weather and it's amazing! I don't know why they couldn't use Unity or the Avalanche Engine to help make this game. It would also be future proofing and much quicker turnaround time for the next game. This is a bit of a letdown, I was looking forward to this game. I hope mods will bring new maps, buildings, or farmhouses to console otherwise I have no desire to go back to it. Expand
