Summary: Great game for kids 8-10 and adults. As a lot of the other reviews have pointed out there are some limits in the simulation, but remember that its a simulation. There are tons of farm chores you don't want to do. This game is mainly about driving large machines in different combinations managing the cash flow of the farm and trying coordinate your work in different areas of the map. There seems to be a huge amount of modding for the PC version.
Summary: Liked that there was a lot to do but wish you had more options on what to grow. Would have liked better set up for chickens and housing for them. There is no interactions with your home and set up of your farm. You get what you get. I also didn't like how dry and brown the American side was compared to the other. All in all it was a game to keep you occupied but could use a little more choices.
Summary: I grew up farming and still work in the farming industry. This game is pretty dang close to actual farming. Buying equipment, harvesting crops, and seeking those crops in this game can be addicting!
