            Just brought the game and must say it brill!
            One thing i will say to people who give it low ratings, having read ur reviews you actually say cricket is boring, well why play a cricket game for god sake, if u dont like watching it why play a realistic cricket game, As someone who loves playing and watchin cricket this is great, its not just smashin sixes all the time which i find boring, its actually about skill and patience. If like me you been watchin the ashes on tv then buy this game having a chance of hammerin the aussies seems good to me could and will be playing this no stop till they bring a cricket games out with everythin, like full test's against all countries and the county set up too!!!

             Exellent game!

            This is the best cricket game yet, the gameplay is really smooth and the graphics are really good aswell... the only dodgy thing on the game is the running between the wickets, it just doesn't look right, other than that a really good game and well worth buying...

             It just is cricket

            Good demo,even tho you only get 3overs each inns you get a great idea of how good the gameplay is and the rough idea in how good the full version game will turn out to be, GREAT FOR CRICKET FANS MUST BUY......so realistic

             They'll get it Perfect Eventually!

            This game, probably, is the best Cricket game I've played since the Brian Lara on the playstation years ago. For me that was the only game which had the right balance of difficulty and enjoyment.

            Brian Lara 2007 after a couple of goes you could work out the flaws and bowl Australia out for 15 then his about 2000 of their bowling. On this its certainly not the case.

            The bowling although easy to do is not easy to master, the Aussies will hit you for a horrific if not somewhat unrealist, rate on hard if you dont bowl perfectly, and are pretty difficult to dismiss. Batting takes time and patience if you want to get a really good score and requires a certain decent level of skill. As far as I can see so far there isnt a glitch where you can hit every ball for six, everything is based on timing and confidence. One ball in the ribs from the bowler gets rid of confidence and strength and therefore you cant his a six next ball unless your spot on.

            But as is with so many of these games they miss out one thing. This year its the running between the wickets, the opposition are suicidal and you can almost guarantee that if you put everyone on the boundary and bowl rubbish they can hit, within about a few shots they will run themselves out. One even started running when the Wicket Keeper had the ball in his hands.

            This tends to be a hit and miss problem, if anything it helps you take the wickets which is really difficult and probably if anything is an error that balances out the score line.

            It could be said that catching behind the stumps is made a little to difficult as these are usually pretty routine in cricket but are made really hard but its definately an improvement on BL2007 fielding.

            Overall after one evening of playing the full game im pleased with it. It's a very decent game in terms of graphics game play options and perfomance, it was bordering on perfect. It the best you can get at the moment.

            O and one brilliant thing about this game, which will also get rid of the silly run out glitch, is the Online games. Had a game last night that went down to the last ball, its really competitive and runs very smoothly. No hitting people for Sixes every ball here.

            I would by this game if you love Cricket and have been craving the good old days of Brian Lara on the PS2.
