Someone really, really needs to have another go at the AI for this game. It's one of the worst I've seen. When I'm still at the stage of learning a game where I look back at most moves and say "Darn, I should have done X instead", I shouldn't end up beating the hardest AI opponent by 10 points. I'm giving it a 3 because graphically its quite good, and it runs well. If you're playing online, this could be a good choice (I assume online games are functional, but I never really tried it). But for those looking to play against an AI opponent, consider this a 1-star review

Did anyone test this with people who don't own the board game? I have many board games on my phone. I understand how to play games. This game makes no sense. The symbology is tiny and unclear. Building placement is a guessing game. Not intuitive at all. My best game was me placing workers in spaces in order from left to right without concern over what the space actually did. Very very frustrating. If this was meant to be an avenue for people to eventually buy the hard copy of the game it fails.

Like others here, what killed this for me is the weak AI. More of a diversion than a challenge. However, for those complaining that this isn't Agricola... it's not supposed to be. This is a simulation of the two player spin-off board game, "Agricola: ALL CREATURES..." and it simulates THAT game quite accurately. Note that to get better replayability, you will want the add-in purchase which gets you more specialized buildings, not all of which are used in every game (randomized, or your choice).
