For Farming Simulator 16 the series ditched the consoles and went mobile instead and what we have is a more streamlined version of Farming Simulator. The mobile aspect of the game may make you raise your eyebrows, but it works pretty well and if you enjoy what the console version of this series offers, I am sure you would like this. It is also worth noting that as well as mobile, a port of the PlayStation Vita was also released.
Fat Stacks Of Hay
The goal of the game is the same as it is in every game in the series and that is to have a farming empire. While I thought that the previous console game had a really brutal tutorial. Farming Simulator 16 kind of just throws you in at the deep and lets you learn the basics of the game via trial and error. I do feel that things are a bit easier to figure out with this game so I will give them a pass for that. You start off with just a small piece of land, but your goal is to not just make as much money as you can. You can also buy new land so that you have a major farming empire going on which is kind of cool.
A Farmers Work Is Never Done
I know that I said this is a more streamlined experience than the previous console game, but they have added in more things for you to do here. To start with you can now grow, take care of and sell more kinds of crops which keeps things more interesting. You can also sell milk from cows and wool from sheep, again which helps add to the variety. If you have the machinery, you can also be a logger as you sell wood. All of these things require a bit of start-up money to get you going, but eventually, you will have a nice thing going.
Slow To The Top
Farming Simulator 16 is a game that is very, very slow-paced. I once read that it takes 10 plus hours for this game to really get going and I would have to agree with that. It is the kind of game I can see many people losing interest in before they really see what it is all about. I though, find these types of games kind of relaxing. They have made a few improvements to the way the game plays. To start with your map makes knowing where everything is much easier than what we had in the last game. Also, you can do most of the stuff on your own, meaning you do not have to hire the dumbass AI workers!
I liked Farming Simulator 16 better than the previous game that was released for console. I think it was the addition of the extra stuff for me to take care of and sell that made this feel more involving. On the flip side, I have to once again say that this is 100 percent a game that is not for everyone. I can see some people finding this game boring and just not getting it and that is cool, I guess.
