Farming Simulator: Nintendo Switch Edition is definitely one for the farming fanatics – and not really anyone else. If you're interested in farming from both practical and management points of view – and have an awful lot time on your hands to explore that interest – you won't find a better way (apart from perhaps a real farm) to experience it than this.If you were hoping for a more casual and easy-going experience to play out a mild interest, however, this is not the game for you; the intense realism and complexity of the game's core concept will be far too overwhelming for most players. Giants Software has done an amazing job at making this feel extremely real – whether this is for better or worse depends on you as an individual.

If you're willing to give up mods, multiplayer and DLC in exchange for portability, then I'd say the Switch Edition does deserve a look. But, I have to note that it is a letdown that the Switch Edition is currently going for $50. That is rather high considering the missing content and year-later release.
