  • Conclusion: If you already love cricket, then you’ll absolutely devour everything Ashes 2009 has to offer, from full-on test matches (including The Ashes, obviously), one-day internationals and 20 over games. For the cricket haters like ourselves however, there’s still a glimmer of buried joy to be found beneath the hours of tutorials if you’re willing to dig for it. Ultimately though, our expectations have been defied by Ashes 2009.

  • Excerpt: If you’re outside Australia or the UK, this review will probably not mean much, however for lovers of cricket, Namco Bandai and Australian developers Transmission Games (Ricky Ponting Cricket) have created a rather worthy cricket title for 2009 and dare we say it, the best in quite some time.

  • Summary: Not the complete package, but still a very competent, challenging and enjoyable game of cricket.
  • Pros: Batting. It's extremely satisfying when you hit a boundary, The wide range of bowling techniques on offer, The accessibility of the control scheme
  • 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
24 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. By far the best aspect of the game, very strategic and accurate, although it is sometimes far too easy to get a high run rate.
