Having played Fifa 09 for two weeks now, I can’t say I am very impressed. It is fun to play and the graphics are very good, but it is just too easy.

In the management mode, I took charge of Exeter City and easily cruised to victory in League Two. I then went on to win League One with 10 games to go.

I am winning by stupid score lines of 5 or 6-0. Sure, it isn’t uncommon for a team to have a rout once or twice a season – but not every game.

I also find myself cutting through the defence like a hot knife through butter. This may happen if you are Barcelona or Brazil, but this is Exeter City – a club whose fans are more likely to be working on the farm than performing the salsa.

The problem is that the computer has its own style of play, and after 10 or so games, you have mastered how to beat it. The more you play, the easier the victory becomes. The career mode is spread across 15 seasons. I have just started my third, and because of the ease of winning, am starting to get bored already.

Maybe I should stick to playing random people online – at least they have their own unique style of play, which will pose a challenge.


This lot would be pleased with my success. Unfortunately, I am not.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
