  • Summary: Providing gamers with the most authentic Ashes experience possible without having to don their whites, Ashes Cricket 2009 is fully licensed by the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board), the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club, the world's most famous cricket club and owner of the Ashes urn) and Cricket Australia, providing the game with all the official players, kit, stadia - including Lord's and The Brit Oval - and equipment from this year’s npower Ashes Series. Coming from the home of video game cricket, Ashes Cricket 2009 is set to build on the heritage that Codemasters has enjoyed with its best-selling Brian Lara series and continue to lead the field with great batting, bowling and fielding gameplay and authenticity that made the series a huge hit with cricket fans the world over. Produced by Codemasters, the game is currently being developed by Transmission Games (Brian Lara 2007 Pressure Play (PSP)). Delivering all the exciting, athletic, skilful and technical elements of the sport, the game’s comprehensive ‘Ashes’ mode features all five Tests played out at carefully detailed recreations of each authentic venue. In addition, gamers can play Test matches, One Day Internationals, 20 over games and a series of challenge modes. The high definition current generation versions feature full online multiplayer as well as support for local multiplayer games. [Codemasters] Expand

  1. Because of the lack of competition at the moment, this is the cricket game to buy. [Nov 2009, p.]
  2. More Tufnell than Warne. [Nov 2009, p.74]
  3. Bugs and glitches mar an otherwise fair attempt at bringing the gentleman's sport to the PC.
  4. Want to feel stupid and cheated? Buy this.

    I liked this much better than EA Cricket. The skill points which can be used and improvement of players by match performances are interesting too. I started playing Ashes 2 days ago only. But graphics wise EA cricket is still on top.

    I think the latest version of game is available now. I would like to try that. Much more match options and management options like in Fifa. will never make us tired of playing this.

    bugs, cheesers and endless quitting..... with no recompense. I was best in the world... and gave up on it... that's how flawed it was at its heart. Don Bradman Cricket 14 will be the best cricket game of all time. Expand
