In the world of Simulation games, one of the most popular simulator series in general is the Farming Simulator. Various farming games offer decent mechanics for growing and harvesting crops but none of them come close to the realism that the Farming Simulator series provides. The Farming Simulator has been providing farm lovers with much realism in the life of a farmer and how much work it takes to grow a single type of crop.
Farming Simulator 22 Review
The GIANTS Software, developer and publisher of the Farming Simulator series has taken realism to the next level along with the visual representation of the game in Farming Simulator 22. With all the new features and content for the players in Farming Simulator 22, the developers have improved the overall controls and mechanics of the game.
It allows players of the old Farming Simulator games to jump into a new adventure with brand new features that give them a new experience regarding farming and making money. Speaking of the new features, there are several new features introduced in Farming Simulator 22 for players to discover, and one of the essential features is the Seasonal Crops.
The Seasonal Crops put players in a position of only growing and harvesting the crops that are suitable for the current season of the year. Unlike the previous versions, players cannot grow any crop at any time of the year which brings more realism to the journey. This feature is mandatory throughout every difficulty and map of the game. It does not matter if you start with Easy or Hard difficulty on any starting map, you would have to be aware of the Crop Calendar so, that you only grow the crops that are beneficial for the season.
This change not only signifies the time for the crops but also implies certain crops to be planted inside the greenhouses rather than the open fields especially, in the Cold Winds season. Understanding this new feature will quickly lend in much profit which allows you to pursue your journey by owning more Land and expanding your farm.
Expanding your farm is also crucial in Farming Simulator 22 as investing in the farming business will only lead to more money and profit. Buying the Land not only lets you farm on the land but also run various kinds of factories. Owning multiple Production Cycles will make things much easier for you but they do require a lot of money so, plan accordingly.
One of the other features that will let players enjoy a bit more of farming life is making a farm of various animals. Animals can produce various items that can be sold to the market for extra income and if you run a couple of production cycles like Bread or Jam, then it could help you earn money much more quickly.
However, you don’t earn money that quickly in the early game but some money can be made by completing the Contracts. Accept and complete the contracts of the characters to not only earn money but also to learn various new mechanics that the game has to offer.
As you progress through the journey while earning money, you will be able to soothe your farming experience with all the advanced tools and vehicles that you can imagine.
Verdict – Score 8/10
Farming Simulator 22 is a solid farming experience and if you are one of the farming game enjoyers or even a veteran then this game should be on your list. It has the best visual design of all of the farming games out there and it lets you control your farming endeavors in every possible way that you can imagine.
