Begin a new chapter in life in Big Farm Story! When your grandpa mysteriously gifts you his old farm, it's your chance to write your own story. Rebuild the farm to its former glory, plant, harvest, and take care of all your animals. Discover a small village and meet new friends around each corner.
Big Farm Story has a lot of promise but misses the mark by a hair due to its overtly mobile nature. Some minor adjustments would kick it forward and put it on the same level as other popular PC farming games, but it remains to be seen whether those changes are made. For the $20.00 price tag currently attached to this title, players should only consider purchasing it if they are looking for a casual and relaxing experience they can enjoy at a leisurely pace.
Big Farm Story is something of a mixed (seed) bag. The game definitely has the right atmosphere to get players in the mood for a rural life, but the lack of any deep gameplay mechanics will leave players twiddling their thumbs waiting for something else to do. It's possible to be the wrong kind of languid, and unfortunately Big Farm Story sometimes strays into this territory.
Big Farm Story, in all its glory, is tedious and skimpy with gameplay. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a fun game because I have played the heck out of it this past week, rather it means that it isn’t quite near where it needs to be.
Overall I feel Big Farm: Story is a nice game with a decent amount of content in this stage of its Early Access. But it felt too grindy to me with how the leveling and farming was set up and reminded me more of a mobile game where you spend IRL money to unlock things faster. This may turn into a gem of a game down the road, but as it stands now it’s a decent game but has some faults. [Early Access Provisional Score = 65]
