The sequel to the famous farm game for Windows 8

FarmVille 2 is the sequel to the popular Zynga game that put you in the rubber boots of a farmer in charge of managing his farm. Available on Facebook and different mobile platforms, the second installment of FarmVille patches up the defects of the previous version while offering excellent quality graphics and interface.

Simplified management game for all ages

FarmVille 2 is rooted in management games, with new buildings to build that allow you to produce resources. Fields produce vegetables or cereals, which can then be processed (wheat to flour, flour to bread...). The game mechanics are classic and simplified so they're accessible to all, rewarding online features specific to FarmVille, so you can invite your friends to join you and share your exploits with them. Zynga has made great efforts to ensure that this new FarmVille is less intrusive than its predecessor, where every completed action resulted in a message to share with your friends. The integration of social networking with FarmVille 2 is much more discrete than before.

Clear gameplay weighed down by a heavy tutorial

Zynga seems to have worked hard to make this FarmVille 2 accessible to everyone, and we must recognize that their work is bearing fruit. The gist of the game is immediately communicated by a very clear and readable interface. We understand immediately how to perform basic actions which enable us to really get our teeth into the game. So why has Zynga decided to inflict such a long, heavy tutorial on us? It's a shame that we can't immediately start playing and instead have to endure this long (and bossy) introduction. Given that building possibilities are rather small at the beginning, this really restricts players.

From the first moments of the game, FarmVille 2 is a feast for the eyes. The 3D graphics lend a great cartoony aesthetic, giving us the impression of change in a childish and beautiful universe. The music is also very good, with typical folksy / country compositions that complement the mood. In terms of production, FarmVille 2 performs flawlessly!

A very good result that improves the FarmVille formula

The follow-up to FarmVille is a success. Doing away with the main shortcomings of the first component (including a social aspect that was way too intrusive), FarmVille 2 suits everyone, except perhaps the most demanding of management game fans, who, faced with its linear progression and long tutorial, would probably struggle to be convinced.
