Pure Farming 2018: A farm for the rest of us (review)

Pure Farming 2018

I used to think that I could hack it as a farmer. Pure Farming 2018 has shown me otherwise. But from where I fell short, the game is more than willing to lend a helping hand. Simulation games seem to only get more elaborate with each entry and are reaching more audiences as well. Pure Farming is one of the most accessible simulation titles on the market, and it wants more people to know the joy of farming.

A Simpler Life

The story in Pure Farming is simple. You take over your late grandfather’s old farm and try to save it from bankruptcy. From there you’re left to your own devices. Whether the farm succeeds or fails is entirely up to you. But the game isn’t focused too much on that idea. After all, it’s a game about farming, so naturally the focus is on a quality farming experience.

Pure Farming, Pure Fun

Personally, I haven’t played many simulation games. That being said, Pure Farming 2018 has made me addicted to them now. The control scheme is remarkably simple and doesn’t feel overwhelming for a newcomer. Operating the farming vehicles, tilling land and harvesting crops have become part of my daily routine. None of it feels tedious which is really impressive. Most games that get you into a routine feel empty after awhile, but Pure Farming only makes me want more. Plus it updates pretty regularly which shows how much support the developer has in the game, which is always a good sign.

The gameplay also feels familiar, because while it is using the same movement controls as most PC games, the integration of familiar real-world objects into the gameplay doesn’t feel tacked on or unnecessary. For instance, the main character uses a tablet to access his emails and do most of the business side of farming like loan applications and the like.

Final Reaction

I can’t say enough good things about Pure Farming. From its visuals to its controls, the game does a great job of drawing you into the farm life. Plus with DLC and regular updates, the game is only going to get better from here.

Rating: 4/5 Atoms
