Relaxing but my god controls are kind of wonky and its fairly hard to tell where he grass has been cute and where it hasn't been.

So, that was a wash. Or a mow, I guess? Since this game has some attention surrounding it, and since it's presented with some more style than other work sims, I hoped that it'd be among the new generation of more exciting work sims, like Arcade Paradise, but this really is just a straight lawn mowing simulator that is n't especially gamified. You mow grass. That's it. I guess the tutorial told me that I will, later on, be able to hire employees and have a mowing empire, but really, you mow grass and I guess you can probably buy boring upgrades for your boring mower for your boring job, but the core gameplay was literally just mowing grass and I played two or three levels of that before I uninstalled. It wasn't even, like, gamified mowing with combo counters or at least small lawns to start with. Nope, realistically huge lawns with just dry and realistic mowing going on. I'll pass.

Honestly didn't know what I was expecting. Great pallet cleanser after AC6 tho.

It scratches the itch that every American man has to put on cargo shorts and white tennis shoes and mow the lawn. I downloaded this game as a joke, expecting to play it once and delete it.
Surprisingly, I played it off-and-on for two weeks. A few of my friends got really into it and took their own turns cutting the perfect lawn. There is a sense in which the game is very satisfying.
That being said, the mowing mechanics, which are the core of the game, are frustrating and buggy. The premise and primal satisfaction of the mowing the lawn isn't enough to overcome the frustration and keep me coming back long term. I'll retire my cargo shorts for now.
