(User scores are recalculated daily)
Ever wanted to play farmer? Farming Simulator 2015 lets you achieve just that with a sprawling farm at your disposal. Featuring authentic vehicles the game lives up to its simulator name by making you feel like you’re working hard on the farm.
Farming Simulator 2015 isn’t the first game in the franchise and accordingly has had time to refine some of the details and mechanics of the past titles. Most notably are the graphic improvements and new engine which help the games realism. While these enhancements are welcome and provide a number of gameplay touchups, don’t expect them to give the game wide appeal, the title is still very much a niche experience.
Gameplay in Farming Simulator 2015 covers a range of farm activities from your early wheat harvesting to animal husbandry and even woodcutting players are provided all the tools necessary to complete the tasks. Not everything is given to you at the start though which provides that sense of a progressing farm and productive business.
Most notably players need not farm the gigantic plot of farm alone with the ability to easily hire helpers that will complete the mundane tasks. Alternatively, farmers can opt to bring in their friends to cover the wide area by getting dozens of farmers on the ground which is supported with cross platform multiplayer.
While everything within Farming Simulator 2015 is fairly well designed and feels realistic as you get behind the wheel of one of your farm toys the game does lack. This is most evident in the game direction and available data to make your decisions for economic success. While you’re given price data of various commodities you can produce it often feels too much like a guessing game without trend information or future price potential.
Farming Simulator 2015 won’t turn everyone into a farm enthusiast but it does have most of the tools you’ll need to experience life on the farm.
- Enjoy simulated farming with friends.
- Use a large range of real farming equipment.
- Grow various crops, animals and cut wood.
- Cross platform multiplayer makes it easy to play with friends.
- New graphics and physics enhance the realism.
