Best cricket game ever.
It is absolutely unfathomable how perfectly Big Ant Studios' nailed their first ever shot at a cricket game. It is just the perfect cricket simulator. The Academy aspect of the game along with its commentary, stadia, visuals, feel is top-notch.
This Game beats all.. DON BRADMAN CRICKET..
What a game to play..
The graphics and the player resemblance are not good..
But, OMG, this have got absolute stunning dynamics and shot variations.
FIFA's, NBA and nothing stands to this games variation factors...
Career Mode.. That keeps you addicted... Its too hard to learn this game, but it gives you all the great excitements of Cricket...
While I fully acknowledge that Don Bradman Cricket 2014 isn't the finest sports game out there and isn't a patch on the production values of, say, FIFA, Madden or NHL games, it does generally play a good game of cricket, and this is the game that we fans of the sport have been waiting for, so with that in mind I'll reemphasise this; this is the greatest cricket game ever produced.
Big Ant should be commended for attempting to reinvent the cricket game experience and imbuing it with gameplay depth and fidelity unheard of in the genre to date, but there are just a few too many bugs and quirky design choices that hinder the overall experience.
It is strong when it comes to emulating cricket, and gameplay mechanics are better than anything we've seen from cricket games over the last few years. However, the so-called "budget" feel that permeates the title detracts from an otherwise decent effort. [Issue#148, p.125]
One of the best cricket games to date, the game demands patience and rewards the players with its amazing game play experience. I know there are a few bugs but BigAnts dedication to listening to and improving the experience further is really creating a franchise on par with Big Budget multimillion dollar games with massive advertising budgets. DBC 14 - Game changer!!!
This is the best cricket game ever since Brian Lara 99. In few weeks after couple of patches it will be a perfect game. After patch 1 game has gotten more smooth. IT has steep learning curve but its worth the effort .
This is by far the best cricket game ever released, though that in itself isn't saying much. You will spend many a night trying to score your first double century, taking your first hat-trick or maybe just hit that perfect cover drive. Not perfect, but close.
Game is full of bugs and glitches that have to be seen to be believed. Some things I look at and just wonder how can this have been released in this form, given all the release delays and shoddy games that have come before?
Career mode is broken despite it being the game's biggest drawcard. Brad Haddin bowls more overs than Doug Bollinger. Its also very boring and shallow. Teams never change over the course of 20 years, fixtures are broken, no injuries, play at tthe same boring and unlicensed stadiums over and over.
Fielding is cataclysmically botched. A complete abmoniation.
Customisation is good with the cricket academy - Ill give them that.
AI is broken - they can't bat to save themselves and the difficulty imbalance between batting and bowling means matches against the AI are non-competitive, frustrating, unrealistic and predictable. AI will always lose wickets in the middle order again and again. Skill points assigned to players make absolutely no difference to how they perform.
Head to head matches aren't any better unfortunetely. The shoddy cameras make it impossible to play.
The learning curve for batting is far too unreasonable. The polar opposite to bowling. To actually make runs you have to exploit the game's weakness and hit to the legside every ball. To not bowl out the AI for over 150 you actually have to try. AI is pathetic.
Online is completely broken and unplayable on PS3. Bugs online are on par with Ashes 13, with some really weird yet comical stuff happening. At least its good for a laugh but thats about it.
Graphics look dated - Ive seen games 5 years older look better. Only a handful of stadiums too - so not sure why they couldnt have made these things better.
A great disappointment - doesnt live up to the legendary name sadly. To pay this price for it is not value for money - there are many other sports games out there of higher quality going for a third of this price.
An overhyped, disgrace ****.
