Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Farm Frenzy Forever is a compilation of 10 titles in the Farm Frenzy series. Every game has the same basic concept - manage a farm, keep the animals well fed, and protect the farm from external hazards. The differences between each game include the types of animals that appear on the farm, the layout of the farm, and the hazards that appear. This collection of arcade-style strategy games teaches players how to effectively manage their time and has no questionable content. The only instance of violence appears when players try to fend off approaching bears, which can result in a cartoon-style "fight cloud."
What's it about?
FARM FRENZY FOREVER is a compilation of 10 different Farm Frenzy games, including titles like Farm Frenzy Madagascar, Farm Frenzy Ice Age, and Farm Frenzy Gone Fishing. Each one of these games is functionally identical but has a different setting -- one is set in the arctic, another in the jungle, etc. -- and vary slightly in which farm animals are presented. Although it is advertised as containing 10 different games, they are all fairly small in scope, making this compilation seem more like one game with 10 different levels.
Is it any good?
The games included in Farm Frenzy Forever are competent, standard time management games. However, there is little to differentiate them from the many other titles in the "time management" genre. Players end up repeating the same steps over and over again, making it seem like more of a grind than a game. There are some mini-games to mix up the experience a little, but as far as the central gameplay mechanic goes, there are several better titles in this genre.
