Summary: Ashes 2009 could have been better , if not for noticeable glitches in game play . While faulty umpiring occasionally makes it more realistic , it is overdone.Another thing is the fielding. The fielding is simply horrific.The appealing,too is overdone Otherwise, the game was good.
Summary: Good graphics and gameplay, but the batting is overpowered, especially once you master it, then it becomes too easy and even bowling the right line and length heeds no reward...This game is best enjoyed playing offline multiplayer, bcuz the A.I just wants to hit every ball for 6 runs...
Excerpt: Introduction: I bought this game as soon as it came out. Like most cricket fans, when the ashes are on, all you want to do is play cricket! I decided to get this game because it looked rather good, all I can say is that it wasn't as good as I hoped it would be.
I regret purchasing this game. Avoid the glitches and buy BLIC 07 for PS2. 6/10.

Excerpt: I have had ashes cricket 09 on the PS3 for a while now and was disappointed by the games poor gameplay. I was left frustrated by the game and couldn't help feeling the game had been rushed out of production by codemasters to coincide with the 2009 Ashes series vs Australia.
A nice game for cricket fans who will enjoy wining the ashes again and again!

Excerpt: I used to play Brian Laras ps2 game which was great! I knew I had to get this one when it came out as I have now upgraded to ps3. The most interesting feature is the new way you get out being caught. If you are fielding the ball will come to you - and a circle will go red; then orange then green.
Summary: I bought this the day that it came out and now that I have played this for a few weeks, I feel that I have a decent amount of stuff to write a review on. Let's start with the content of the game. There isn't much of it.
the cricket game we have been waiting for....with flaws

Summary: This game has one major flaw....and that is that it is far too easy! as i write this i have just bowled Australia out for 39 on "Hard", which is the hardest the game can get. But put that to one side for now. In terms of gameplay, this game is really fun!
Summary: I have wondered for a long time, when will we be treated to a decent cricket game on the PS3? I was hoping that Ashes Cricket 2009 was going to finally deliver. Sadly I have to say that I for one am disappointed.
Very disappointing but there is nothing better out there!

Summary: I had always been an Xbox owner until I recently crossed the divide in to PS3 territory (I am very glad that I did!). I loved the original Codemasters cricket game Brian Lara 2005, it was a great game for both a quick hit as well as a good full day's play.
