Farms may appear to be peaceful and relaxing, but there's a decent amount of work that needs to be done all year round, in order to maintain the fields, fertilize the lands and harvest the crops when the time is right. In addition, all of these tasks require expensive vehicles, which are specially designed to achieve maximum efficiency in the shortest amount of time possible.
Become a successful and wealthy farmer
SimTractor provides you with the chance to be in control of your own farm and oversee every stage of the harvest. In addition, in order to achieve this, you also get to drive around in a variety of vehicles, all of which are vital in assuring the survival and quality of your crops. Thus, from tractors and combines, to sprayers and loaders, they all have an important role to play in the overall process.
The game starts out by allowing you to name yourself and the farm you will be responsible for, after which throws you right in the action. Although you can simply start the vehicle and proceed to undertake various farm-related activities, you can also roam the land on foot, if you want to admire the view and get familiar with the surrounding area, before you start taking care of the crops.
Spend the money on new machinery
In the beginning, the vehicles you possess can get the job done, but there are many more out there that do it better and faster. After the money start coming in, you can purchase new machinery and become more productive, which in turn allows you to work faster and gain more profits. Regardless of what vehicle you use, though, it still takes a bit of time to complete the missions, since the fields are quite large.
The graphical aspect of the game can be customized to fit your system, but you have to experience it on the highest settings in order to see everything it has to offer. Thus, every vehicle is closely modeled and detailed after their real counter part, as is the wheat and various other crops that can be harvested. On the other hand, the landscapes could have used a bit more work, since they are rather repetitive and plain most of the time.
A relaxing game for rainy afternoons
SimTractor may not keep you glued to the monitor for hours at end, but you can lose yourself in it for a while, especially since it gives you plenty of time to let your imagination run wild, while you slowly make your way through the wheat fields.
