I just read this review twice and realized that other than "bored people looking for a game to play" or "guy who just lost a bet", I have no idea what the desired audience for this game is.

As someone who used to live on a small farm as a youth, the thought of playing a game about working a farm just has no appeal. So were they thinking, "Man, all those city-slickers who've never baled hay in their life ought to be interested in seeing how the other side lives?" And if so, shouldn't they have found a way to add appeal to things other than giving boring sidequests that happen to earn an obscene amount of money? Making fertilizer bombs to take out corn terrorists would be better. And then it'd truly be GTA on a farm!

Yeah, I was originally going to bring up that point about who this is targeted at, but then I briefly went around the net, read comments about the game, how they and their children LOVED playing this. I was just thinking, "I REALLY must be missing something here..." and decided to leave it out. xD

Thanks for reading.

I head spaceshit noises.

I bet it's still more fun than FarmVille.
