How we rate the games?
Farming Simulator 2013 is a simulation game about farming. You will find everything you might expect from farming in real life. There is a buying selling system, so you can buy tractors, animals, fertilizers and much more. You can buy your own land and use it to make more money by farming. There is a day/night system which is very realistic, since you can choose to make the time go just like in real life.
The more you work, the more money you will make. Buying new vehicles to make your work faster and easier, will mean that the game will become somewhat easier. During your farming days, you can go to other parts of the city and watch what is happening by making new missions. You can buy lands in different places from the map, using your PDA to find them and spend your money.
If you never farmed before, that is not a problem. There is a tutorial, which helped me too on how to farm and it was just like I was farming in real life. Except the farming stuff, you can use a tractor to move around faster. There are some horseshoe which are said to bring luck to the player who can find them all and it won't be an easy task. This is only in the career mode, not in other modes. The tutorial is very helpful and will give you every knowledge you will need to play career mode, so you better start off with the tutorial.
The game has bad graphics, but that is quite normal since the game is designed only for farming. There are some optimization problems, especially car crashes or the tractor might happen to get stuck in a tree. I included that thing to show that you will have trouble if you go near a tree, but that was really funny!
You might feel like meeting new people, than you can go to the city and watch them walk by, but nothing you can really act. There is a shop, where you can buy and sell your stuff, but but you will need a lot of money to buy the vehicles, since they cost a lot more than other stuff in the shop. In the same way that you buy stuff, you will also sell. Every time you sell something, it will always be cheaper than expected, much cheaper.
There are no 'weapons' or other stuff you might imagine from usual games, just you in first person mode and your farming abilities with the vehicles. When you hop in to a vehicle by pressing E, you will spawn to a third person shooter camera. The idea is right, because you won't always be able to move around with the car in first person mode and it could have become irritating for some. For those who farm everyday, it will be a new experience and who knows, some new skills will be achieved.
You will have a PDA which will help you during your journey to make things quicker and easier. The good thing is that you can zoom in and out if needed to watch the whole city, or the place where you are at. You might have a mission after some time, which will be shown on your PDA's map. There are some minor bugs, but not that problematic to make you not play the game. Overall I think it was really good and I enjoyed it, but not that I want to become a farmer, you get the idea!
