Summary: I bought this as a gift and then post it to Germany. Later on I found that it contains faulty disc. No point of getting it back from Germany and send it to Amazon. With this cost I can buy another.
Excerpt: "...and decided to buy the Ashes 2009. On first glance it has various modes including classic cricket, scenarios, and the ashes test itself. There are various difficulty levels Village, County and International. With village level its so easy that I scored 550 in less than 25 overs in the first ashes, very easy. But the county and International modes does give you a little challenge. In terms of the graphics its ok, I always find it difficult to see if ...
Pros: Different game modes, Scenarios to challenge you, Different overs to keep you occupied,
Cons: Graphics are poor, commentary is repeated and gets boring, Player names awful
Summary: My son loves this game and plays on it all the time! It took a little while initially for him to get used to the batting/bowling technique but once he did he was away. There are three skill levels - Village is quickly mastered, but County and Test are much more challenging, as are the scenarios. Recommended.
Summary: I bought this game in summer 2012 and was very impressed when it arrived. The delivery took just 3 days. the first day i played the game 4 about 9 hours! There is a useful tutorial that really helps you to understand how the game works. You hold A for a defensive shot, just swing for an ordinary shot, and hold B for a big lofted shot. The bowling is pretty simillar, with A for a slow ball, B for a fast ball and nothing for an ordinary ball.

Pros: Good for a laugh, fun, range of different options, only cricket game for the Nintendo Wii
Summary: i bought this for my children and they said 'this game is brilliant and simple to play but sometimes when the ball is in front of the players and they just stand there and look at the ball whilst the other team is running. also when you play the ashes you can only use 1 remote so if there are two remotes on you can only use one so my boys have to swap remotes every over. It is realistic because sometimes catches are dropped and stumpings happen.
Summary: This game proved to be a complete disappointment. Only Australian and English players had their correct names, while all other teams had players with made up names. What made it even worse was the fact that you were unable to change their names manually. The gameplay, I felt, was not very exciting or challenging and it is better to purchase a different game to this one. Do not be misled by any advertisements on this product.
