I love watching paint dry.

The Good
Not a lot to tell the truth. I could probably have more fun with a big gun, 2 pencils and a balloon.

I guess it was original in the setting of a farm, but Maxis have exhausted just about every possibility for a sim game there is.

It was good though to watch out for your horses and then try and catch them as they all run around.

The Bad
Most of it I think. I couldn't for the life of me get anything to grow, and when I did have horses, they always escaped. No, don't take my uselessness as bitterness towards the game, I am indeed a big fan of the Maxis sim games, but this one was just the pits. :(

The Bottom Line
I wouldn't bother describing it to you, I'd instead recommend that you grab a copy of the original Sim City, or Sim City 2000. Sim Earth is even a great improvement on this one.

The Original and Best!

The Good
This game has always and will always be the best farming simulation. Granted it's a very slow game, but farming is a slow process. The advanced (for it's time) features of crop cycling and reseeding were flawless, and added a complexity to the game that I really enjoyed. Many say this game is boring, but those are people that are stuck on Halo or the newest add-on to the Sims.

The Bad
Not much I can say that I didn't like. Music was kind of poor even for it's time. Other than that I love it and always will.

The Bottom Line
A time consuming game of farming fun, a blend of rural life with SimCity.
