Farming Simulator 22 is the new pinnacle of farming simulation. Seasons and Production Chains are a breath of fresh air away from the repetitive cycle of preparing, planting, harvesting and selling that featured in previous games, while the new activities means farming has never been more diverse. There's so many new things to do and thanks to crossplay improvements, you can enjoy multiplayer with more friends too.

Players of earlier Farming Simulator games will notice and appreciate a lot changes and improvements in the new release. Everything looks a lot better, there are new crops, and the new production chain mechanic and changing seasons really mix things up. New players may be flummoxed by the tutorial, as well as the deep, open-ended gameplay. Farming Simulator 22 has some rough patches, but there’s a lot of fun to harvest as well.

Farming Simulator 22 seeks to diversify the series with a wealth of critical new gameplay features. It isn't perfect, and there's still some more that can be added, but this is certainly a step in the right direction for the series.

Easily the best entry in the long-running series to date, though Farming Simulator 22 might not have a picture perfect PS5 debut, it does augment the series already robust strategic and micro-management fundamentals with a number of new additions and features that make it an erstwhile choice for series veterans. Though newcomers will likely struggle with the tutorial and learning curve, Farming Simulator 22 soon becomes an engaging time sink that not only taxes the brain duly, but helps to provide a modicum of insight into the sheer amount of hard graft that goes into one of the most challenging occupations in the world.

Farming Simulator 22 massively expands upon the management aspect of past games, giving greater importance to your crops once you've harvested them. Building supply chains is immensely rewarding, even if it can take what feels like an eternity to get your business up and running the way you want to. Interesting new crops, like grapes and olives, add gameplay variety to the tried and tested loop, while an abundance of licensed machinery gives you a wealth of vehicles and tools to work with. It's the best entry in Giants Software's series yet, but like a popular British yeast extract, you'll either love it or hate it.

Farming Simulator 22 re-proposes the formula that made the Giants Software series famous, with all its strengths and weaknesses. The new features (new crops, cross-platform multiplayer, new build mode, seasonal cycles) are interesting, but the frequent graphical glitches should be addressed.

Farming Simulator 22 represents the most complete embodiment of the spirit of the series signed by Giants Software. An uncompromising simulation experience, which makes its relaxed rhythms and the vast range of contents its proud distinctive element.

Veterans of the saga can add a 1 to the final score, as I think that would be the most suitable score, for those who should not waste time struggling with the game.‎

Farming Simulator 22 is the best installment of the series, but it’s not perfect. Some issues could have been easily avoided, while others are clearly the results of choices. But we can be sure that mods will fix many things soon. Then the veterans of the series will love it!

If you've ever dreamt of owning your own farm, or simply ploughing, fertilising, spraying, and cultivating someone else's land, then Farming Simulator 22 will cater to your every whim and want. Newcomers beware, though – the barrier to entry is quite high.

‎Farming Simulator 22 has improved over previous installments. From small things like driving, which is still not perfect, to physics that have to do with weight, terrain, and the type of machinery. There is also, of course, the new gameplay mechanics that enrich the experience by making it deeper. Their problems are in how difficult it can be for a new player to understand what to do in the game, as well as how unretributive the game will be with your effort, they are things that can discourage players and make them simply stop playing.‎

Farming Simulator 22 is a big step forward compared to its predecessor, but it still suffers from the syndrome of being a regular "simulator". Running a farm is completely addictive, but the world around us is just outrageously poor.

Fans of the franchise will most likely see Farming Simulator 22 as a refreshing addition to the franchise thanks to updated graphics, fun customisation options and quality-of-life additions. However, a lack of clear instructions made for a frustrating experience which could immediately alienate new players who can’t get through the first 20 hours or so of gameplay before seeing the fruits of their labour finally developing. Then again, that does represent the harsh realities of farming life, in which case, Farming Simulator 22 succeeds in attempting to recreate an authentic farm life experience as possible. Does it make me want to dedicate any more time to the game itself though? E-I-E-I-No. I'll stick to the unrealistic sugary goodness of Stardew Valley.

Farming Simulator 22 continues to offer fans one of the most complete and realistic farm simulators to be found on the market. Although not many new features have been added, the few introduced and the new variety of environments are appreciated. On the contrary, it is a very unfriendly game for the novice player and the questionable decisions regarding the tutorials are difficult to ignore.
