After all the success of Farmville, Farmville 2 has entered the gaming scene to sweep farming fans off their feet. The sequel offers everything you would expect form a simulation of that genre, and you will stumble upon plenty of features that kept you busy in the original game.

If you decide to start your own farm in Farmville 2, you will start off with the simple task of planting and harvesting some delicious tomatoes. After a short tutorial you will be nicely settled in to the upkeep of your online farm. You can then head to the in-game shop and buy some seeds to plant almost anything you please, from pumpkins, to strawberries, to radishes or a number of other crops. Aside from the low growing fruits and vegetables, there are also seeds for various types of fruit trees that are available for you to include on your farm and pick from whenever your apples, pears, oranges or what have you are ripe.

After all is said and done, you will witness FarmVille 2's most exciting feature: Earning money for your hard work. You’ll be able to get some good returns on everything you invest in crops or livestock if you manage your resources well, and you can then use the profit to expand your farm or simply make it as luxurious as you can afford.
