Critic Reviews for Ashes Cricket

Ashes Cricket isn't pitch perfect, but it's the best videogame representation of the sport to date.

While it doesn't quite score a century, Ashes Cricket still puts in a decent knock.

The Ashes isn't going to bowl over non-cricket fans, but it's a solid representation of the sport, and not that biased against us poms.

Ashes Cricket offers the very best cricket game so far. As well as being the most realistic, it offers more approachable gameplay to help draw you in and looks excellent, particularly the licensed players and major stadiums. While it has a few bugs here and there, it also features an extensive customisation system and a number of game modes. There's a lot to love and keep you engrossed.

It may be occasionally janky, and despite best intentions, it isn't always as easy to understand as it could be, yet Ashes Cricket's bright spots shine through the flecks of grime. This is not a perfect game of cricket, but it is a good one.

Ashes Cricket is a very good cricket game, and very enjoyable once you eventually work out what everything does. It's just a shame the game doesn't do enough to explain its depth to the player from the get-go, which leads to a needless opening few hours of frustration and potential misinterpretation.

Ashes Cricket is the best cricket game ever made, enhancing the foundations of the Don Bradman Cricket series, rather than starting afresh.

There's nothing about Ashes Cricket that stands out as being bad, and that's definitely a good thing considering recent Aussie sports titles. There are many smaller changes from the previously released Don Bradman Cricket, that all come together to improve the entire experience and take Ashes Cricket to the next level. Apart from buying tickets to the Ashes this summer, this should be your next purchase, as I absolutely love it.
