Expert Review

22 December 2009
  • Summary: Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but while a game experience faithful to its source may lure fans to the virtual reproduction, hardline adherence doesn't necessarily make for enjoyable gameplay. The latter is certainly the case with Cricket for the Wii, and when you're not wrestling with the rubbish control system, you'll be assaulted by bland visuals, incompetent AI, and stilted audio commentary.
  • Pros: Multiplayer helps dodge bad AI
  • Cons: Bland visuals, Passive fielding ruins chances of wickets, No alternative control scheme, Inconsistent CPU difficulty

Ashes Cricket 2009

25 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Codemasters have known for a long time that the Ashes started 8 th July, so the first disappointment is that they failed to release Ashes Cricket 2009 until 7 th August. This would be by the by if they had used that time to hone the graphics and skills of the game in order to realistically simulate cricket.
