There’s no point in claiming that FarmSimulator 2009 is this year’s most exciting release, nor that it will convert those who think sims are hideously dull.Having said that, this minute-by-minute account of a farmer’s day is a strangely soothing game to play - probably because it doesn’t involve actually getting up at dawn to milk the cows. A painstaking peek into rural life.
