  • Excerpt: I have always played cricket as a kid on a regular basis. As I got older, I started playing the Brian Lara games. I recently got the Wii system and decided to buy the Ashes 2009. On first glance it has various modes including classic cricket, scenarios, and the ashes test itself.
  • 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

Many different formats of the game and different gaming modes are included as well as some tutorials to enable you to increase your enjoyment of the...

A good laugh with a few mates but not what cricket fans were hoping for.

Good fun if not taken too seriously

  • Summary: Not a bad game overall if you don't take it too seriously and don't treat it as an attempt at a completely realistic simulation of the game. That being said, there are some really irritating flaws in the game, such as: Dodgy AI leading to suicidal running and sometimes the furthest fielder from the...

Never mind the terrible gameplay where's the online option?

  • Summary: Like everybody else here I was really looking forward to this. I've been playing codemasters cricket before it became Brian Lara. The first version was Graham Gooch Cricket on the Amiga. I loved that game so when I got a PS1 I bought Brian Lara for that and then again on the PS2.

Ashes Cricket- A Solid Defence

Mr. S. Leatherdale, Amazon
10 November 2009
  • Summary: There was a lot of negativity in the initial reviews-mostly mistaken in my view. This is a solid Wii effort. The controls work well and create a fun and controllable game. When a batsman you are controlling gets out you can see what you have done wrong and try to correct it.

  • Summary: well i saw this thought oh good a cricket something to rival brian lara cricket. but sadly it doesnt. i think the game is good. the controls are just plain awkward. shame you couldnt use the wiimote as a cricket bat. or like the same position in tiger woods. the flick idea is just naff.

Made a start, got out quickly

Darrell, Amazon
9 November 2009
  • Summary: I eagerly bought this game as I was really looking forward to a cricket game on the wii, because, let's face it, the wii controls lend themselves perfectly to a cricket game. However I was a bit disapointed.
