Farming Simulator 2011 Platinum Edition Review (PC)

Farming Simulator 2011 Platinum Edition Review (PC)

I had the pleasure of reviewing Farming Simulator 2011, but this was no ordinary Farming Simulator 2011…oh no, this was Farming Simulator 2011 Platinum Edition. Platinum baby, because that’s just how I roll!

So lets start from the start: Installation. Installation took quite a while, I’m not really sure why, my computer ain’t that bad. You know when you are driving along a country road stuck behind a tractor doing 10-15 mph on a 60mph. Yeah the irony! I’m not sure why but it seemed to install the game minus the platinum goodness. I had to run the installer again to add the platinum content.

While waiting for the installation to finish I noticed on the box it said “New Machinery and Green Energy”. Good to know I’m helping with my carbon footprint! Perhaps it was a mistake to install the extra Platinum content right away. I fear now that I will never know how much it brought to the game since I never played it non-platinum. We learn from our mistakes.

So into the game I go, and… Oh my, that music! I felt like I was in the bar that Data and Picard use to visit in the Star Trek TNG/Sherlock Holmes holodeck type episodes, or if you are unfamiliar with that scenario, imagine an episode of Frasier. The jazz band, I can almost smell the cigar smoke and see through the haze to the brunette in the red dress on stage swaying her hips. I could stay on the title screen all day.

I delved into Career Mode. No one wants to be a part time farmer, that just doesn’t pay the bills! I start and it’s 6:15 in the morning (in game, pfft I’d never be up at that time IRL!) I was running around until I found a tractor and my first instinct was to put it in the middle of the road to block oncoming traffic, what really freaked me out was when a car did come up and there was no one in it…

Anyway Career Mode wasn’t very helpful for a first time player, so after a bit of hunting I found tutorials in the Missions section of the game. I selected the first tutorial and the game crashed. Anyway, second time lucky.

The controls were tricky to get used to and the keybinding all seemed a bit strange and unintuitive to me. When plowing I was driving too fast and managed to lose my plow thing attached to the back of my tractor.

Perhaps I’m too reckless to be a farmer. I never did make it back to career mode. The loading times were long and I felt there was no real incentives for the player.

    It makes sense then to have most if not all of your first plots of land dedicated to the
    alfalfa crop. Final Ideas – On the draw back, if you have a choice for complete grain bread, then this device doesn’t bake it appropriately as it doesn’t have a
    sandwich mode, so you will require to appear elsewhere.
    The problem with this arrangement is that the attorney has no incentive to do anything beyond the
    bare minimum.
