Average User Score: 8.5Aug 8, 2018An exquisitely difficult game which rewards you the more you play - permadeath aside, every minute you invest in the game pay dividends byAn exquisitely difficult game which rewards you the more you play - permadeath aside, every minute you invest in the game pay dividends by making available increasingly potent weapons and (some) permament upgrades that makes your progression easier (trust me anything helps) the more you play. Old school sprites makes a thrilling action packed comeback and is a welcome respite from the polygonal gaming world that we are so used to now. Stellar game.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2Jul 12, 2018Excellent game. Mileage vary but I'd say it would take 3 - 4 hours for first timers to complete the game so it is on the short side. TheExcellent game. Mileage vary but I'd say it would take 3 - 4 hours for first timers to complete the game so it is on the short side. The difficulty rises gradually in the beginning but ramps up exponentially in the latter parts of the game with some fiendishly tricky puzzles.
It's moody, it's different, it's disturbingly serene. i couldn't put the game down once I got started - but the difficulties of the later stages kinda "forced" me to take a break especially when the developers string together many hard puzzles in sequence. Which is a good thing - otherwise most gamers would just breeze through and not breathe in the atmosphere and design of the game. Personally I do not believe there is much replay value given that it is a puzzle based game and the enjoyment is in cracking the conundrums. Once that is spent the thrill is gone, for me at least. I will replay once again but hard to imagine I would go on to a third play. With that in mind I still maintain that the game is worth your time.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5Nov 8, 2017Having played no farming simulator before, this game is a welcome addition to my collection. I'm 47 and was quickly through the tutorials inHaving played no farming simulator before, this game is a welcome addition to my collection. I'm 47 and was quickly through the tutorials in no time. I thought the combination of L, R and L&R + buttons is ingenious to toggle up the array of tools and controls. After awhile it becomes second nature.
I have not played it docked but absolutely have no beef with the graphics when undocked - they are crisp and sharp enough for mobile play. The machines, animals and farm furniture look great (failing eyesight like mine helps perhaps) Really you don't need to look at the horizon in the far yonder to benchmark the graphics when all the action is up close (and you do need to hustle and get the land tilled!). And up close, the game looks beautiful.
Too much action games on my plate of late (SMO, BOTW (still!) and I have been spending many hours on Flame in the Flood and Farm Simulator instead - where proceedings are .. calmer. Great purchase for me. No regrets… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5Oct 22, 2017Challenging. After the first few early deaths, you will learn quickly and prioritise your inventory building - including getting round theChallenging. After the first few early deaths, you will learn quickly and prioritise your inventory building - including getting round the unwieldy crafting system : do most of your crafting at the dock when you have yours, Aesop's and the rafts inventory at your disposal. There's always an element of luck (or rather bad luck) that will result in quick deaths - but that is what survival is all about - you have to roll with the punches and make do on the fly. it's telling that the programmers didn't want a formulaic game where a player can linearly fashion his inventories to see the game out to the ending. You won't find that here. If you can respawn at your last checkpoint before death with inventories intact - then the challenge of the game is lost. Incredible value for USD15.00.… Expand

Some of the block movements are not intuitive and can cause cheap deaths through no fault of player. Humurous voice acting and CoOp is the way to go .. the children got hooked but later on the difficulties do turn them off .. leaving only adults to be more suited to enjoy this brain teaser.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.0Oct 8, 2017CoOp is a total riot. Managed to "upgrade" my missus from the menial task of manning the shield to become an adroit gunner. We're both in ourCoOp is a total riot. Managed to "upgrade" my missus from the menial task of manning the shield to become an adroit gunner. We're both in our late 40s and with our teen boys - the game has been nothing short of crazy fun. If you didnt' figure out the first time, to play CoOp you must press the top 2 buttons of each SEPARATED JoyCon. Shoulder buttons are only when you want to play single mode or 2 player mode with 2 controllers. To play 4 players with 2 controllers - separate the joycons and press the top L R buttons of each joycon.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8Nov 26, 2010I was underwhelmed with the racing experience on GT5. Sure, the graphics are pure eye candy but that alone does not make a great game. ArcadeI was underwhelmed with the racing experience on GT5. Sure, the graphics are pure eye candy but that alone does not make a great game. Arcade Mode on Professional provides miserly challenge .. that more often than not, you can win by a country mile by the time you cross the checkered flag.
The challenge on FM3 is far better - if i could pin it down, it would be that the racing is much closer, the challenge that much harder and there is always the excitement of taking defensive / offensive lines. On GT5 its all very sterile .. you can even bump into the AI to slow you down into corners and get away with it. FM3 is less forgiving and you would be spinning your way off or damaging your gearbox or engine. Don't get me wrong, I use the Force GT steering and i thoroughly enjoy the steering and force feedback when you aquaplane or losing grip on GT5. It's enjoyable as a tech demo to show off the game's graphical prowess as you navigate around the circuit .. great graphics .. good handling etc. It is definitely a competent game. A superly great game for a lot of folks I reckon. But it wasn't for me. But after being spoiled by FM3, GT5 comes around as rather tame. And I really had high hopes that the bar would be raised. But it hasn't - except maybe in the visuals department. And I confess that I am disappointed.… Expand
