Farming Simulator 15 Review Summary

WeakCritic Consensus

Farming Simulator 15 fails to deliver expected competence. It's an experience that's rife with bugs and inaccessible gameplay. Fans of this niche may have some fun, but that's about it.

Critic Reviews for Farming Simulator 15

The tractors look great, but the rest of Farming Simulator 15 comes off like shovelware from 2012

A terrible video game and still a terrible attempt at simulating owning a farm, with unbearably boring and bug-ridden gameplay.

It's not difficult to see why people would seek a more relaxing game after having their senses barraged with endless gun-toting violence, but this game doesn't offer the video game equivalent of a week spent dozing in a hammock on an Aruban beach; it's an exhaustingly dull weekend in the Scandinavian countryside with only chickens and low-poly civilians for company.

Needless to say, those with a short attention span best stay clear, unless they have another monitor or tablet handy. That said, there is likely to be a pocket of (perhaps younger) gamers who will extract genuine pleasure from the game's dreary pacing and lack of pizazz.

If you are looking for a game where you can drive beautifully modded tractors and all kinds of farming machinery around a farm, then you've found the game for you. Otherwise, the unrelenting grind, the sheer learning curve and the lack of attention to the smaller things that make good games good makes Farming Simulator 15 forgettable.

If you know you'd like a farming simulator game that tries hard to recreate perfectly a small portion of reality, Farming Simulator is just what you need. If you are looking for an all-encompassing simulation game that basically recreates life on a farm, maybe wait for Sims 7: Farming Life. If you're in between, try to score this game when a deal arises, as you may get bored like I did. It's worth trying it out, and I'm glad I own it so I can go back to it when the farming mood arises, but my attention wavered far more quickly than I would have preferred.

Farming Simulator 2015 just does not offer enough to make it worth playing instead of all the great games we have available today. If you want to relax while playing videogames, there are way better games to do that – Flower and Journey come to mind as good examples.

The gameplay available in Farming Simulator 15 is obviously very niche, but behind the actual subject matter the game offers an in-depth sandbox that allows you to decide exactly how you wish to progress using the various farming techniques available. Fans of games such as The Sims and creation and management genre games will likely find a surprisingly enjoyable experience if they can make it past the game's slow start.The new addition of forestry and more emphasis on animal husbandry do add to the experience found in Farming Simulator, but if you're simply planning on cultivating your crops there's not going to be a great deal of difference from the series' previous installments.Farming Simulator 15 isn't going to appeal to everyone, but for those of you who do wish to take to the fields you'll find a surprisingly detailed experience that can prove to be enjoyable once you get your production line in place.
