Though the game was bound to have it's small problems, it is as if it has been created by people with very little cricket knowledge. For the ps3 and xbox there is not one serious cricket game, like fifa. And i hoped that this game would be like that, but its very much a poor graphic, basic, and rushed game. I highly recomend waiting for a better company like EA, who will know the sport better and bring a much better realistic cricketing expirience. And will be programmed with the real laws of L.B.W ect. to conclude, the players names are still not liecensed, so they are look a like names. it's simply just incomplete.

  Good, but not perfect!

For general fun, and 20 minute blasts this game is very enjoyable, but if you play for a good period of time you recognise the flaws with the game, for instance square cutting a full length ball for six just would not happen! for someone who plays and watches cricket very often, you realize that the game could be a lot better, the bowling action isn't brilliant and the batting stance looks weak.

One of the main problems for me is that there is no difference in batsmen's stance for different players nor is there any difference in the bowlers action for different players. This makes the game seem a little unrealistic, as when you watch Pietersen live or on TV, his stance is very wide and he looks to get on the front foot every ball, and the game does not emulate this. Also when Anderson bowls he gets quite tucked in, and he runs very quick up to the crease, whereas in game, he just trotts up and launches the ball towards the batsmen. This could be added to the next cricket game Codemasters release.

The new action-cam is a good addition, giving a fresh view, and making you feel more like you actually are batting and bowling.

They also need to improve on the licensing front, and try to get as many cricket nations kit and stadia as possible to further imprive the realistic side of the game.

I think they need to totally recreate the system they use for batting and bowling actions rather than using the Ashes Cricket 2009 system, to also further improve the realism, and try to create separate stances depending on the batsmen or bowler.

Overall a good fun game, that hasn't had much changed from Ashes Cricket 2009, but its simple to play and fun, which is what matters, if they can include all of the improvements above for the next installment, it might be worthy of 5 stars!

Very very similar to Ashes Cricket. Not much better to be honest. Dissappointing. However is a good cricket game in its own right. I just expected more of an improvement.
