The game offers a lot of depth and customization options, with a huge community of players and creators making mods to enhance the experience.

The bad

Some players have reported minor bugs and technical issues, such as the G29 steering wheel deadzone, terrain manipulation tools, and poor physics handling. Additionally, the game’s monetization scheme has been criticized, with some players feeling that the season passes and DLCs are too expensive or not worth the cost.

Despite some minor issues and controversies surrounding the game’s monetization, Farming Simulator 22 is an enjoyable and engaging game that offers a lot of depth and customization options. With its beautiful graphics, addictive gameplay, and dedicated community, I would still recommend picking up the game - especially while it’s free on Epic Games.
