Thanks for the thread, reading some of the reviews for this epic has saved me from playing Left 4 Dead 2............
You won't believe your mince pies it's Woodcutter Simulator 2013!
You are the lumberjack, the gruff, moustached brute in a checkered shirt. Calloused hands smash your trusty axe into trunk after trunk, felling the great wooden skyscrapers of your horizon.
Oops no moustache.
Your shirt removed you feel the crisp mountain air on your muscled flesh and rushing into your heaving chest. This is your sky, your forest, your world.
Except Woodcutter Simulator is nothing like that. It's all "numerous vehicles and cranes" and "diverse tasks" and "integrated economy" and chainsaws and delivering logs to customers in bloody vans.
It's as if someone sucked all the romance out of the idea with an industrial leaf vacuum. It's like stupid old boring real life. Look!
If you're still interested, pencil Q1 2013 in the diary and make sure you've got a capable-ish PC.
It's not even my favourite simulator game. I mean, Excalibur has Camping Manager 2012 and Bridge Project, and Disaster Response Unit and Circus World.
But there's still no sign of Victorian Chimney Sweep Simulator or Morgue Simulator.

Here's two of it's better reviews.........
Graphics are decent on ultra high. Sound is amazing. Story has some flaw but it keeps you interested while urging the player to ask serious questions about the logging industry's impact on the environment. I would like to see some future DLC where the tables are turned and you must play as the forest and send squirrels/deers/wolves to fight the lumberjacks and sh*t that would be sweet.
If you can pick this game up for cheap it is worth your time p.s. If you happen to be at a flea market in the Philippines you can trade about a half pound of scrap metal for it.
From the minute I saw this game I knew it was going to be amazing. All sim games are beautifully made and not half arsed or boring at all. The log cutting feature is dynamic and a game mechanic that brings a new, wonderful experience to every moment you chop down a tree. Your character gets to ride around on a speedy hoverboard that will get you to your destination lickety split. Wow, what a fun saying. AHAHAHAHAHA!
The environments are also stunning! Remember that one with the trees? I sure do!
Ten out of ten. Eleven out of ten. Ten tens of tens are tens.
