Forestry 2017 - The Simulation reviews and comments

Again, a Game I would like to give a Thumbs up. Unfortunately, however, it is not enough for Forestry In 2017. There's a whole Lot of positives about this Game. I like the level design very much and provides longer Motivation in the Game. The Landscape looks very harmonious, so you have a lot of fun to walk the Horse through the Area. Speaking Of Horse, really a nice Change. I have named mine after Artax from the infinite Story. ;) But unfortunately, the positive is destroyed by a whole Lot of negative Things. At first, the Game has almost no Documentation. The Controls you have to guess intuitively, there is neither a Tutorial nor a Way to view and change the Controls in the Options. Then the Game lacks some Things that would make your Life easier, like Jumping to certain Places or Vehicles or Navigating the Map (you only ever see a Snippet). In addition, there are quite a few Bugs, so the Game with Nightfall is no longer playable, because you can't see anything on the Map anymore. The Exposure in The dark by the Lamps is completely next to it and is of no use at all. Furthermore, the Tractor with the Gripping Farm does not recognize some of the sawn tree Trunk Parts, i.e. you can't grab them with it. The Horse also often decides to take a Midday Nap and lays down on the Side. I'm very much hoping for a Patch that improves at this Point, then I'm happy to give my Thumbs up, because I really Enjoy it from a Game principle. :)

Beautiful Game Unfortunately with negative Characteristics. Negative: The Old part of Simulation Games is that most of them have to play a Usage Manual for the time being in order to know the game better, Unfortunately, with this one of the usage instructions there is the only one that you can start playing immediately. The fact that is actually a bit good is that you can start small and stop big, but the decisive draw is that you can get the Credit for my playful skills quickly, which cloaks the fun of play, you can already get a lot of information about Vehicles have the good thing about it, however, is that you can skillare there skills where you can get more money and lower the prices of the traders. Which is actually also squimingly weak. The System of the Game: You saw par trees and take them on to the Depot where you can get the money, you buy vehicles that actually don't bring much but are there for it to get a little faster like money and wood etc. Nevertheless, you have the Horse at the Beginning but this can also be squimingly annoying because you have to walk back and forth a lot at the Beginning, which is actually normal but as soon as you have the Tractor in possession and the Tightening it is actually quite easy to move better. "One represents Intermediaries who of course do not work for nothing, thus the names of the Credits are used under heavy Strain, thus you also have losses that one has to earn against after sale. My Rating therefore falls with a Thumbs down nevertheless this game is actually not that bad and it Fasscinates manchemal a very much because if you like it as a wood fealter to paint which is of course in good hands here in this Game:-) P.S: Anyone Who finds writing errors may keep them to themselves unnecessary comments such as insults are deleted and immediately displayed at the Steam Support.
