After waiting patiently, fans of the series have been treated with its instalment to date. In our Farming Simulator 22 review, we scored the game 8/10, saying:

“Farming Simulator 22 is the new pinnacle of farming simulation. Seasons and Production Chains are a breath of fresh air away from the repetitive cycle of preparing, planting, harvesting and selling that featured in previous games, while the new activities means farming has never been more diverse. There’s so many new things to do and thanks to crossplay improvements, you can enjoy multiplayer with more friends too.”
