    Truly a brilliant game of cricket. Sure it's not a million pounds ea sports development but it's made with
    Care and imagination. You might
    get bored quickly with the commentary Which sounds a bit like that boring bloke on the IPL if you've seen that. But there's a fantastic muted pa system in the background.... So many great features. For example yesterday I was batting against India and totally lost confidence against the spin, so decided to take it to the seam attack. First ball was a bouncer in my face, so I figured next one probably would be full length at the stumps which is exactly what happened so I stepped forward and drove it back over his head for 6. Next ball... Good length at the off stump was my guess... Yes that's what happened so slate cut for 2 more runs... Then another bouncer. Sometimes it's like the game is alive. Epic fun. Expand

    This is the best cricket game till date. Every aspect of the game has been thought, processed and been executed really well. The realistic approach towards batting, bowling and fielding is one of the biggest assets of this game which no other cricketing game was able to provide till now. Tackling license problem with smart and creative idea is just exceptional and gives a buyer an idea that how much Bigant studios are determined to give the best of this game to the users. In spite of having lack of sponsors and not having a million pounds like EA sports development have they have managed to pull off things in a great manner. However few areas where it needs advancement are Commentary it can put you off, definitely graphics can get better and better, crowd need to be alive and small glitches here and there should be sorted (Like when you get a batsman out it should come out realistic more than often its batman who leaves the ball and it hits the stump which is very rare and is not that realistic in a way. Batsman should also get beaten on in-swing/off spin or out-swing/leg spin deliveries to get bowled as well). All these small small things can make huge difference to this game. This game will already be in good League but by improving all these it can become a 'A' Lister game. A game which lives on forever.

    I feel to get it to the next level they need to find good sponsor and I think forget about all boards even if they can get just BCCI to believe in them and they focus on Indian market as well (as cricket is a religion in India) they can blow whole worlds mind by giving them the game of life.

    I'm sure everyone will be expecting a lot from them in upcoming years, hope they exceed our expectations just like they did now.

    This is most aspects is the game cricket fans have been waiting for. Big Ant have done a wonderful job creating this on a shoe string. It had some quirks and minor bugs but many great modes.
    Only concern is in some aspects, mainly batting, the game is a little tough, especially for more casual gamers to master it.

    This by far is the best cricket game imo; Its good graphics and notable player sharing and the amount of customisation to the players faces, bodies and the customisation to the teams jerseys etc show that this is a very good game... However the gameplay isn't quite as good. It gets downright frustrating if you don't time the hit of the ball impeccably then the player will miss the ball and get bowled or knick it to the keeper, slips. At first I thought this was just me with these problems as I am a noob at it; well a lot of people I know have the exact same problem. Not being able to get to 20-30 without getting out makes me spend a lot time doing other things; rather than playing this game. There should be a better learning curve. The game has its flaws (kinda like Rugby League Live 2 with its intercepts) but it is an Australian company Big Ant so I am supporting it; I like the game but not the batting; I myself haven't tried bowling but from what I have heard its quite frustrating that the batting. The lack of sponsors are disappointing but It is a good game for not being made by High budget companies like EA and 2K but I do believe this has set the platform for cricket games and Big ant only improve on from here.
