    As a cricket nut, Don Bradman Cricket is the definitive version of the finest cricket game ever produced. It's also quite possibly the most limited "HD Remaster" yet produced for the console, but Big Ant has now cut its teeth on next-gen development, and I can't wait to see a proper sequel down the track to a game that I have spent more time playing over the past year than any other.

    A deja vu update of last year's Don Bradman 14. Minimal graphics tweaks and not much else. [May 2015, p81]

    Aside from difficulty finding a quick match, and the fact that it’s a year old game that looks a lot older as it’s being sold at full price, Don Bradman Cricket offers plenty for those that don’t have the 2014 version.

    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.

I find it quote astonishing how a company that has never produced a cricket title before can come up with a masterpiece like this whilst other companies produce certain titles over and over and never seem to have an idea of what they're doing, but Big Ant got it right first time around with this title.

    This is by far the most realistic cricket sim out there, the lack of any licenses could have been a worry but the online player editor and download feature fixes that in as easy as 1, 2, 3.... Depending on your setting the game can go from either being a bit to easy to exceptionally hard, what you need to do is find your level and soon you will realise that is plays very realistic, gone are the days of smacking every ball for six or getting bowled even though you time a ball how well, this game is realistic. The bowling, mainly spin bowling is a bit frustating and takes some time to figure out, but at least its fun. If you are looking at adding this game to your collection with Don Bradman Cricket 17 on its way in the next weeks then know that you wont be making a mistake. Bring on Don Bradman 17, I can not wait!

Graphically, the game can improve and minor gameplay tweaks will make this one of the best sporting simulations made outside of EA's FIFA and Madden franchises and 2K's NBA franchise. Expand

Visually it's not brilliant, but the controls are great, the gameplay has been vastly improved and I like that they've added the community team sharing feature, which automatically uploads the top ranked teams to the game; a great way around all the licensing nightmares we've seen in the past 5 years. If you love cricket, buy this game, Expand

It utilises an unnecessarily complicated system for bowling and is not nearly as effective as other cricket games. You will need to invert your batting and bowling as well which is annoying as the game doesnt take into account camera changes. There is no minimap of the field layout in the game so you dont know where to hit to and because of the shocking angles there is no way you can see where your hitting to. The fielders are useless and the umpire is on drugs. One of the biggest dissapointments of my life. Do not waste your money.... Expand
