Pure Farming 2018 Reviews
Truthfully I do like some of the core mechanics of the game. I've done small-scale farming in real life and understood the requirements that kind of profession and lifestyle places on you. A lot of things in this game remind me of those days, but there's a lot that breaks the simulation and realism. The odd vehicle controls, random issues when driving that will instantly slow you down, and the need to continually open that damn tablet really deter me from the game. Otherwise, it does perfectly capture the tedium of the farming life reasonably well even if your character seemingly never has to sleep.
The developer of Pure Farming 2018 is on the right track, but there is still a lot of catching up to do.

Pure Farming 2018 is a joy for those who love that kind of thing.
Pure Farming 2018 is, for the most part, a game about doing tasks while watching the days go by. If you find enjoyment in that, then this title is made for you.
Pure Farming 2018 recreates modern-day farm life to a tee, creating a complex, yet painfully mundane, farming simulator.
Pure Farming 2018 is a "as the box describes" experience. If you love farming, or want to learn about farming, then Pure Farming 2018 is going to be perfect for you. Heck, if you want an afternoon of doing next to nothing, then this also works for you. But unless you have the passion for farming, it's hard to recommend Pure Farming 2018 as a video game.
For a series that's defined by its tardiness, Pure Farming 2018 leans a little too heavily on the slow side for our liking. This is a perfect first choice for newcomers, though, as its campaign walks you through every single element of agricultural “action” – and there's a helluva lot to wrap your head around. The various environments could do with a little more visual identity, but they offer unique challenges that make them worth playing. And while the quick-fix challenge mode won't keep purists occupied for long, we certainly appreciate the attempt at distilling the title's gameplay into short session bursts.
The game delivers the farming experience it promises.
Pure Farming 2018 is an alternative to the Farming Simulator in terms of gameplay. Get on the field!

This is a tricky one, Pure Farming 2018 has its moments with the Farming challenges and the vast amounts of statistics, information, and analytics on offer. However, I can only see the hard-core farming simulation enthusiasts being excited over such features as the casual among us may find it too overwhelming. The lack of multiplayer also furthers the point that you're in this on your own, with only your in-game emails for help and guidance. On top of various performance issues and no clear objective other than a glorified tutorial, it's hard to recommend this game over games such as Real Farm and Farming Simulator 2017.
Pure Farming 2018 is a much-needed combatant to the ever-popular Farming Simulator most people are used to. It is always nice to see someone take a risk and come out with a title when only one other game of this genre has been dominating for so long.
If you're looking for an expanded farming simulation then this is an excellent option for just that.
Pure Farming 2018 from Ice Flames is a fantastic starting point for a new franchise. Farming Simulator has some serious, real competition now.
This virtual farm is amusing. Expand your global farming, drive farming vehicles, enjoy the farmer's life.

Time will tell how this game develops but I truly hope that they continue the support and add more content and features to Pure Farming 2018, hopefully, to make it the fantastic game it so nearly is. It's already got much more crop diversity then Farming Sim 17, and the potential to better it is there for all to see.
Pure Farming 2018 is proposed on the market with a first chapter that tries to break the waters in a situation that could start to become stagnant. If on one hand try to propose new crops and environments different from the main competitor, on the other hand forget the online mode and does not integrate all the innovations developed in recent years by Giants guys. We can only hope that the next year will lead to more lush crops.

Pure Farming 2018 is a title ripe with content – five maps guarantee dozens of hours of fun, while the amount of crops to grow and the variety of ways of earning money is more than satisfying. It’s a pity that the game features so few machines and suffers from some technical issues. Still – for a debut, it is pretty impressive.

Pure Farming 2018 suffers from tedium that masks itself as originality, which only highlights how similar it is to others. There is very little reason to recommend it over its competitors, but that's only because of similarity; not a lack of quality. If you're looking for an intro to farming games, then you may find a chilled and informative experience here.
A fun farming sim with tons of options, an intuitive interface and impressive graphics.
If you like the idea of running a farm, give it a go, but be warned that it will take up a lot of your time to get used to the basics.
