I've played these "free games" before and they can be playable without actually paying real cash. This one is not one of those games.
I found that I was playing for five minutes and stopped because I couldn't go any further without pulling out the credit card. To get more energy I'd either have to wait or pay real money. I waited.
Came back to see what was up and the crops I planted died, lost money and within five minutes there was no energy.
This game is a blatant rip off, period. It has the real potential to be a very fun farming game but with all of these limits and requirements it irritated me nonetheless.
I like BigFish games because the price for games is just right with a membership. The graphics are modest, the playability lasts around a week and I feel that it's worth the price.
When one of these games advertises that I can have unlimited play for over $50 - FORGET IT. That's greedy and not worth the money.
If BigFish is reading this, I'd hope you'd release a paid game instead of this blatant rip off. This is really a big disservice to your members/fans.
Recommendation - If it says it's free, it's not! Don't download.

game does not work
On two occasions the game has failed by not allowing player to continue at or about level 23. For those who are yet to play, to get to this level will take you two weeks, say playing for 4 hours daily. Big fish know this happens but still advertise the game for play. Don't waste your time. On complaining advice is given but none of their fixes works.
Bad for Big Fish

not so great
I really liked this game and played it often without any issues but then I updated the game and it is nothing but junk now. Most of the time it will not load up but it always resides in memory preventing me to start another game without restarting the computer.
DO NOT UPDATE THE GAME!!!!!

free is a loose term and its like watching paint dry
If monotony and waiting are for you this is your game. This game is free if you have ten years, if not, its gonna cost ya. I truly hate this type of trend.
Plot is thin at best
click gopher mole thing
wait for family forever
Yep...that's pretty much it.

Worst Game Ever Especially After Update
Played this game for over a year because I enjoyed raising animals, planting/harvesting, upgrading farm, etc., but now with the new update, you can pretty much forget about accomplishing anything. They've made it nearly impossible to do any of those things now. Epic fail on the developers part. It was a good game...now it's total garbage.

Ruined game after the last update!
I was a lovely game, I was enjoying with my animals and quests until BF updated the game. This is really epic failure, especially for you guys!

New updates took the fun out of everthing
I've been playing this game for a couple of months and up until today I really liked it. The storyline was good, there was a variety of tasks/quests, and the goals were challenging but not impossible. I especially liked the fact that even though I could only play for a few minutes and few times a day I could still make a good deal of progress. In fact, until today the only complaint I had was the real world dollars they tried to get you to spend.
Then today they came out with these new updates which they claimed would add new items and quests. That may very well be true, but these updates also changed the production times for certain items, and not in a good way.
Before the updates things like eggs, wool, and milk took between 30 minutes and 1 hour depending on the item. Now? 6+ DAYS for these same items. You better hope none of your quests involve eggs, wool, or milk. If they do you're going to be at it a while. Or be forced to spend real world dollars for in-game gold to speed up the process. Productions times on other things don't seem to have changed, so why these?
If the developers/Big Fish were smart they'd claim this whole thing was an early April Fool's joke and go back to the way things were.
I give it a couple of more days, a week tops, before this game ends up in the trash folder.
My advice to newcomers? Don't bother. It's not worth it.

does not fix issues
I really enjoyed this game prior to their update. It has been months since the update and still they have not fixed the issue. I have spent a lot of money and countless hours on this game and now I have to abandon the game because they will/have not fixed the problems.
