    I'll give a game a **** score if it deserves one, but people generally only poo-poo things like this because they don't personally like them - which is not a valid reason. Farming Simulator 2011 is not trying to be a AAA FPS, it's trying to be a Farming Simulator - and if you're out looking for a farming simulator game then this one is an OK. It's not great, but it's not truly terrible either; merely run of the mill and average at best. Thus, 5/10.

    Compare it to something like Winter Voices (http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/pc/2010/09/24/winter-voices-avalanche-review/1), which sets out to be a story-driven and philosophical RPG but which fails utterly at it. THAT'S a bad game and, as such, it gets a bad score.

    Not sure what made me chuckle more, reading the forums/review or realising the fact that CardJoe managed to write two pages on it..

    But reviewing games like this, I guess that working for bit-tech has its down sides as well, i would have asked for stress leave afterwards..:)

    I think they should have named it: "The X-Tractor"

    I remember the combine harvester in Carmageddon 2, probably somewhat more fun than the one is this game

    You guys are really pushing it a bit farm with these puns. If it wasn't for all you turnips, I wouldn't have a head full of these corny jokes. I have half a mind to smack you one in the ear, potato-face. Yeah, you! Can your mother sow? I bet she can! What a porker!

    Porker? I hardly know 'er!

    Aaaaaand I'm spent.

    You may say I've sown my seed.

    Ah man, this thread just tills me.

    I liked the screenshot of the Tractor attacking the car. It made me laugh more than it had any right to.

    Hay you guys, will you stop with the terrible puns, they are just poultry. Quit horsing around, you guys just aren't mentally stable.

    I think it's time to get pasture juvenile homour, and moove on
