Ashes Cricket 2009 Review

VideoGamer.com
29 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Part of the problem with the Ashes being played in the UK is that most of the action (yes, cricket does feature action) takes place while the majority of the population is working. Those Sky ads that show people watching on their PCs while at work clearly don't paint a true picture of what employees...

  • Cons: The opposition batsmen on normal on hard difficulty modes. They're just too good, The uninspiring, unexciting QTE-based fielding mechanic

  • Conclusion: The people at Transmission game and Atari have bowled us a corker. Multiplayer, online play or trophies to chase down, all add to the lasting appeal that Cricket nuts will love. Now, please excuse me as I go and get back what is rightfully ours from those Poms.

Ashes Cricket 2009 review

Gameplanet
26 September 2009
  • Excerpt: You have no idea how hard it is to write a review of a cricket game without applying a heavy layer of groan-worthy double-entendres and busting out 12th Man or Richie Benaud quotes by the dozen.
  • Pros: All the intricacies of the game are here, including psychological advantages, but they’re presented in an accessible manner where some other developers would have complicated things.
  • Cons: The overall style of the menus and pre-game graphics are reminiscent of a five year old title. Online support and presentation is dull at best.

PS3Center.net: Ashes Cricket 2009 Review

PS3center.net
1 October 2009
  • Summary: Character models are fairly good, but stadiums are not as good as you would hope for a next generation title. Sound effects are decent; commentary is also quite good, although lack of music is a major disappointment in such a slow paced game. Voice overs also lack enthusiasm to a certain extent.
