            Top 100 Games Reviewer

            This a very good effort and definitely the best cricket game I have played.

            I started with a few of the tutorials which teach you the basics of batting, bowling and fielding and set you up ready head straight into a match.

            At first there is quite a bit to try and remember but after about 10-15 mins you soon get used to the intuitive control system and the game flows really nicely.

            The batting is much better than Brian Lara in my opinion as I have found it much more accurate when aiming to pick out gaps in the field. Manually playing shots off the front and back foot (rather than just playing a shot and leaving the computer to do this for you) makes this feel much more range of accuracy depends on the skillset of the batsman you are using.

            Bowling is also good although I would say even when you hit the exact mark for a perfect bowl you do get hit for four a little more often than I would have liked. Now this may be that I am bowling at the wrong length but I did go back to advanced bowling tutorial to try and work out if I was doing anything wrong but could'nt really see that I was. Also, I didnt really find the cutters very effective for taking wickets, and personally, I have so far found the spin bowlers much more useful than the pace bowlers.

            The hardest element of the game is probably the catching. If like me you skip the fielding tutorial I can pretty much guarantee you will drop your first two or three catches. lol. Depending on the fielding position you can have a very small window to hit the x button to succesfully make the catch. I would say this is realistic though, as the ball would naturally come to you quicker in the slips for instance.

            Graphically, I would not say the game is in the same league as say Madden or FIFA and some of the player likeness are questionable at best. The crowd also looks pretty standard, almost 2D if im being honest but when you are actually bowling and batting looking at it from a lofted position they are more than adequate and the gameplay more than makes up for any graphical issues.

            Commentry is pretty good, but I have found some of the background chitter chatter you can hear from the crowd can become a little annoying and repetetive.

            Overall a definite 4 star game and certainly a purchase for any cricket fans.

             Fantastic Game

            This game is great but its disappointing the attention is mainly based on the Ashes. However its quite addictiove and its just brilliant that you can play online and acheive trophies.

            i live in the UK and i got this game on the 6th which is weird because i thought they release the game on the 7th, anyway i could't get of the sofa, this game has brilliant graphics and gameplay. The online is brilliant and the atmosphere created by each of types (20/20, test, ashes,ODI) is superb. The only downnside i have is that only england and australia are licensed however they given you a team editor tool so you can change the name.
