  • It has really been a bit of a surprise to me how many farm management sims there have been on the Switch, though to the credit of most of them they’ve at least been all over the map in terms of their style. In the case of Farm Manager 2022 you’ll want to be sure to be clear on what it delivers, which isn’t a more active form ala the likes of Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley, it’s instead a far more detached style where you’ll be making the crucial decisions on how to proceed, and then staffing up and buying equipment, but then letting it all get handled non-interactively. The thing is, when you’ve played quite a few of these and the tutorial is still feeling a bit too “deep end” too quickly with a lot of interface screens and details like the specific equipment you may want to buy, where to store it, etc… I wouldn’t consider it a good sign for generally more casual players. If you really know your stuff perhaps this would be speaking your language but I’d then wonder why someone skilled enough to be an actual farmer would be playing this instead. Oh, and did I forget to say that it is simply glitchy with things like vehicles clipping through buildings or each other and other anomalies just in the gated tutorial? If you’re really looking for this more involved version of farm management I’d say checking out the others first would be a better choice overall.
