Simulator games have always been a genre that I like to jump in and out of depending on the game. As I have always loved farming styled games, when I got the opportunity to give Farm Manager 2022 a go I had to try it. 

You are the new manager of a run-down and dilapidated farm. It is up to you to get the farm up and running and producing products and making money again. Can you?

Farm Manager 2022 game

Farming

In Farm Manager 2022, you are, as the title says, the manager of a farm, and you have full control over what is built where and the products, animals, staff and so on you have on the farm. The best way to describe what you do is micro manage everything.

As the manager, you have total control over all aspects of the farm. From live stock down to the feed they get. Everything can be accessed by side bar down bars and a radial menu. These all are simple and intuitive that everything is easy to find. 

When placing a new building, there are several factors you will need to decide. Foremost, where you are placing your new building? Some factors can be; is the building connected by a road? Is there electricity nearby? Are the staff close enough? Placing the road is simple, like every other sim game. Where the planning comes in is with the other two aspects of electricity and some building like staff houses. Each of these have a circle around them showing their interactive area. If your building is too far away, the staff cannot do the job, and if there is no electricity, then nothing happens. Plenty of planning is needed.

There is a ton of stiff that needs managed, seasonal staff, calling for repairs, vet call outs, keeping the staff happy and so on. 

A Small Issue Maybe?

I cannot stress enough how much management is involved in Farm Manager 2022. This could be slightly off-putting, however, for players who are new to management sims. Not that Farm Manager 2022 is hard to understand or hard to learn, but having so much stuff going on and stats to watch it can be daunting. 

If this is the case, just take a deep breath and freeze time. Doing this will allow you to look at and even change anything that is needed without moving time on. Allowing for you to take off most of the stress off yourself. Highly recommend this.

Farming Manager 2022 is a fantastic management sim, with loads to monitor and it is a deep and rewarding experience. It can be a little overwhelming in the beginning, but be careful with planning and take your time, and your farm will run like clockwork.

I cannot stress how much there is to do in Farm Manager 2022 and for the price this is a must play for any sim player out there
