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.
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.
Summary: The only real problem, and it's a huge one, is the fielding; they may as well not even be there. This means you can't run out the batsman even if he has started his run and the ball lands at your fielders foot who it 10 feet away from the wicket. He'll just stand there not picking it up! This makes a decent game unplayable -obviousley shipped out before it was even properly tested. If you're OK with having your fielders do nothing then go ahead and buy the game.
Excerpt: I'm a huge cricket fan and we've just bought a Wii, so I was pretty excited about the prospect of this game arriving, despite reading varied reviews about it online. We actually bought it on eBay for £10 plus delivery, and I see it's available, used on Amazon, for about a tenner, too. Much more if you buy it new. Don't buy it. What Can You Do? Well, it promises lots.
Summary: I was so excited when I was given this and I so wanted to be raving about it, however it is beyond poor. I enjoy console gaming, but and by no means a great console gamer, so imagine my surprise to find myself hitting every ball for six within minutes of starting. In fact, the only scoring shots appear to be six or four. You can't nudge a single or place anything. All you can do is swing.
Summary: I have traded this game in and I really do think it is the worst cricket game I have ever played on. It is far too easy and not realistic, with both sides smashing it from ball one, going at more than 10 runs per over in a test match. I don't think that codemasters have made any progress here. I was really looking forward to a cricket game finally coming out on Wii, but this has been a really shocking effort.
Summary: Having been playing various versions of cricket games on both PC and PS2 for several years, I was really excited for a Wii version as it would offer a far more interactive and realistic cricketing experience. What a disapointment! I guess I kind of expected to be looking down the pitch through a cricket helmet grill, as Brett Lee steamed in, my Wii controller in hand masterfully hooking, pulling, driving or ducking.
