Sports games sell. That much is undeniable. No matter how much we enjoy watching sports and playing sports, there will seemingly always be a market for sport games on consoles. This is especially true for football. Just look at the facts. Year on year millions of people scramble to buy the latest edition of Fifa or Pro Evolution Soccer. For many it is an automatic purchase. Yet for other less popular sports timing is often required in order for sales to be properly boosted, and this is evident in plenty of releases. For example Virtua Tennis 2009 was released a month before Wimbledon. And so it is with Ashes Cricket 2009, a game that makes no secret of the cricket ... Read the complete review

I don't like Cricket....I love it, but to be honest with you, they still haven't created a cricket game that matches in anyway the thrill of the real thing, they've tried with 'International Cricket Captain 2001' and 'Brian Lara's Cricket', but never really created the unique dynamics that makes the Commonwealth countries favourite summer sport so appealing to fans and so baffling to everyone else. The Game: Ok, i'm not going to lie, the name gives it all away, this game was clearly created on the wave of expectation following England's Ashes win a couple of years ago, with a cover showing model/cricketer Keven Pietersen it is made to appeal to ...

Essentially for me this is an update of the old Playstation 2 game, 'Brian Lara's Cricket', it was made for the Ashes series in 2009, probably for maximum publicity and sales, I mean who wouldn't want to recreate the games on their sofa. It's the first new cricket game for a couple of years and is in my opinion a 3 out of 5 game, its thoughtful and does provide great fun when you hit a ball cleanly or bowl someone with pace and guile, but its graphically average, can become a bit predictable and there are problems with the programming. How to Play: You can play a 20/20 match which is probably preferable for many due to the length of time ... Read the complete review

Ashes Cricket 2009 - Xbox 360 First of all this game has an amazing amount of fun multiplayer sometimes possibly more fun than the single player games. Ashes Cricket 2009 in my opinion is the best cricket game in about a decade. That said, it's also disappointing as the only licensed names are the Australian and English teams and the graphics are admittedly not up to scratch against other sports games. The learning curve will definitely scare off a few but once you learn the game pretty well balanced, it's a must have for any fan of Cricket games. Ashes Cricket 2009 has pretty dated looking graphics, but the gameplay honest is amazing. Sometimes it ... Read the complete review

If you've had the ashes fever this is the game for you! If you've had past experience of cricket games such as cricket 09 and brian lara series then i'd say this was perfectly balanced between the two. The graphics are great, the pitch and players look very life like. The crowd however are still 2D and ruin the games look. The stadiums featured on the game look very close to real life with important features of each stadium picked out and shown on the game. The gameplay is smooth and flows fairly well. It imporves on the brian lara series by not being so mechanical, as with many next gen games now, the players are freely moving and certain shots etc don't ... Read the complete review

Colin McRae: Dirt 2 (Xbox 360) - Amazing graphics and sounds along with a varied style of gameplay. None really.
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising (Xbox 360) - Realistc and challenging will frustrate the casual gamer
Damnation (Xbox 360) - Umm...it has a manual? Where to begin-broken controls, horrible visuals, dismal sound and no redeeming value.

Lots of action, good idea to have the game set between RE2 & RE3 and lots of multiplayer options!
Graphics aren't the best, multiplayer has a few problems and story mode is very short!

Graphics, challenging, fun
Only online multiplayer mode
