If you are a cricket fan this is the game for you, it is superbly done by Big Ant Studios.

The batting and bowling feel authentic and the ball physics are just spectacular, the only down sides and the are only a few:

- You cant (as yet) change the lineups of squads during a career
- The animations for fielding and catching a little strange sometimes and regular nutty catch angles happen when a straight forward catch would have sufficed.
- The AI is stupidly good at running you out can be a little unfair at times, and in the whole time ive played, mostly simulated for bowling, but I still havent managed to create a runout.
- Animations for quick yes then no calls can result in a buggy player and can sometimes end up in a run out because the batsmen didn't put his bat down.


But other then those few things this is in incredible game from this studio, the physics are superb, you actually feel like you earn't the edge behind or that LBW.

Definately would reccomend if you are a serious cricket player.

Arguably the best Cricket game ever, and I've played many. If not, it's certainly near the top.

Nice graphics, excellent gameplay, patches released on a regular basis. There is realism, depth (batting especially will take a little while to get the hang of), and room for the community to step in and create players, teams and umpires. And there is a long-awaited CAREER MODE, where you start as a 16 year old and work your way up from County/State/Province-level to International selection.

There isn't a large amount of stadia, but this is to be expected of a first release. Clearly gameplay has been the focus and DBC14 is better for it.

In my opinion, DBC14 is worthy of the 'Don Bradman' branding. Well done Big Ant on hitting this one for six.

P.S. You will need a controller, which I think is a good move, I couldn't imagine playing this on a keyboard.

It's rare to find a decent Cricket game since the mid-90s to mid-2000s. During this time it was a battle of two publishers: Electronic Arts and Codemasters. Early iterations of the game were fun and lacked the realism that most sports games demand. If you're considering DBC 14 I also recommend searching for EA's Cricket 96 (PC) or Codemaster's Shane Warne Cricket 99 (PS1) on eBay.

But back to more current matters. DBC 14 is by far the most authentic cricket game since the EA Sports release of Cricket 2005 for the PC and PS2. Running the game for the first time, you are met with an update that thankfully changes all player names to real names. I hope to see an update in the future that contains real stadium names too. Once in the game, you have various game options from 5-over a side to full blown test cricket. You can also create yourself and move up the ranks of world cricket.

The practice arena is great too, reminiscent of a training nets session. From time to time I find myself relaxing in the nets just having a hit. I've only accumulated a few hours on the PC version but I did so, migrating from the XBOX 360 version. DBC 14 has a solid frame rate and feels very smooth. One aspect that still needs improving is the commentary. While not bad, it's not great. It's certainly not as annoying as other sports games (like PES) but not as smooth or free flowing.

I love the camera angles in this game. When playing solo, you are shown your player from the 3rd person perspective. While this is standard fare for bowling in all cricket games, it's quite refreshing for batting and makes the game feel more authentic. Fielding is decent too and the camera angles during play are superb.

At the time of writing this, I'm in search for games during the Steam sale. However I was quite willing to drop the full price for this game for two reasons: Supporting not just a local developer, but one that is willing to put the time and effort to capture a sport that itself has captured millions around the world.

In short: this is the best cricket game I've ever played.

The controls felt really strange initally, but just playing the demo and batting in the nets was a strangely satisfying experience. I enjoy all the disciplines and being able to be succesful actually requires skill. I can't claim to be very good at anything in this game, but it feels very similar to my real-life cricketing abilities, so there's that.

I've spend the majority of my time playing the career mode in this game. It feels pretty realistic, except that with some of my performances, i'm sure my county should have left me out of some games.

Is the game perfect? No. The commentary is pretty inaccurate and repetitive. There's a lot of missed catches for seemingly no reason. And although I enjoy bowling, sometimes it's really hit-and-miss about how to dismiss a batsmen. But as that's similar to the real thing, I guess that can't be a complaint.

If you enjoy cricket games, buy it. There's nothing I've played that's come close.

Best Cricket game ever!
All cricket lovers don't miss this game.

Shot selections are awesome and decent bowling options.

Would take a while though to tune yourself to play shots.

THE PROS:
DBC 2014 is easily the best cricket game available on the market today. It's well-polished and is a lot of fun to play. The career mode is done very well and it's exhilarating for a run of good form to be rewarded with selection to a higher team, such as the national test, ODI or T20 side. The graphics look great and the game runs with all settings maxed even on my 2 year old gaming laptop. The control scheme is very smooth and is quite intuitive for both bowling and batting. The AI is very good at bowling and batting, particularly at higher difficulties. It has problems with fielding, but more on that below. At higher difficulties the game is positively brutal and every wicket or boundary feels like a real triumph.

If you are a cricket fan, this game will keep you coming back for more. A must buy.

THE CONS:
Online DRM check at startup means you must have an internet connection to play. This is bad and Big Ant should feel bad. When will devs learn that stuff like this does not prevent piracy, but drives people to it?I am unsure how many sales this has lost Big Ant but judging from the backlash on the forums and Steam Community, it is enough to warrant a rethink.

The commentary feels like they only recorded about 10 minutes and just play clips seemingly at random. Occasionally, the commentators will say the same line again and again and again in the same over, or they will say something totally unrelated to the situation. One example of mine was when a particularly bad ball (that I bowled) was clubbed out mid-wicket, and the return from the fielder went over the head of the wicketkeeper and continued on for 4 embarassing runs (well done, boys). The commentary went like this:

Commentator 1: Oh dear, and the throw has gone over his head and all the way to the boundary for 4.
Commentator 2: Great shot, I could watch that one on replay all day. Beautiful timing. (What?)
Stuff like this happens very frequently. Big Ant, if you read this, MORE COMMENTARY PLEASE!

As previously mentioned, the AI can be absolutely short-bus levels of stupid when it comes to fielding. Particularly, the fielders who are very close to the batsman (that would be silly point and short leg for those of you playing at home) rarely react as expected. A ball smashing into them will result in a blank stare as it drops to the ground after hitting them in the chest. On occasion, they will turn and sprint away from the now dead ball like it's a grenade for no reason. 58 hours of gameplay in and I am yet to see a fielder in these two positions take a catch.

Catches in the slips are so unbelievably exceedingly rare that a career as a fast bowler is almost unfeasable. This has been addressed in a fairly recent patch but is still very, very hard- even at low difficulties. If you want to bowl, save yourself- be a spinner.

The best Cricket game out there! Made by fans, for the fans. Big Ant has really put a lot of effort to bring this game out.

There were days when I was hoping and praying that EA would put out a new game. After 2007, EA abandoned the franchise, Codemasters tried their hands on it once in a while. But, Cricket was a dead game, almost the entire community resorted to "mods", Cricket 07 was modded to great extent to make it playable (enjoyable),

Patches to fix AI, toughen bowling, make strokes close to realistic and stuff, but nothing gave the satisfaction of a complete game.

DBC14 arrived at the scene and took it by storm, the price was high (considering I live in India, where this was close to 4k of our currency). I had second thoughts, but then I looked up the trailers, put faith in the developers and bought it.

Despite the high price of the game, which is really needed for the developers to set up a base for future titles, the game is complete. Complete in every way, except for commentary.

Pros-
* CAREER MODE!
* Great bowling controls
* Great batting controls
* Great fielding controls
* Great everything
* BIG head mode

Cons-
* Commentary is kinda dull
* Not many players to meet in Multiplayer mode.

Go ahead and buy it, you will not regret the decision.

Fanstasic Cricket game, Bowling and Batting mechanics are spot on. Fielding feels strange as the AI takes the most strange a disjointed catches ever seen in a cricket game. Hopefully we see a few patches to iron a few bugs and add in a feature where the players can do replays with hot spot that would be awesome!... Worth the cash in my opinon. Good Job!!.. Come on summer so we can see the Aussie tear someone apart!!!!

Without much time invested in the game so far I can already tell that this is going to be a firm favourite of mine for some time to come.

I am a big cricket fan and an equally big video game fan. I have been playing cricket games for as long as I can remember from Graham Gooch's cricket on the C64, Super International cricket on the SNES, most of the thoroughly excellent Brian Lara games, the complex cricket captain series, the hit and miss quality of the EA series and more recently the frustrating codemasters releases and Cricket Revolution. This game very clearly sets a new benchmark for cricket games.

The batting system is joyus. The game rewards you for reactions and punishes you for playing premeditated shots. You are forced to consider the implications of working the ball around the pitch for long term accumulation or pinch hitting for quick runs and the bowlers adapt to your style of batting and actively try and out think you.

Bowling is a great improvement on previous games where instead of selecting a spot on the pitch to hit, you focus on line and length and take wickets through variation and guile. Bowling the same ball over and over again is, like real cricket, an invitation for the batsman to score where as subtle variations on pace, spin/swing and bowling position as well as bowling to a plan gives wickets in a similar way to real life.

This game is highly polished in particular the in game implementation of the DRS system and the availability of reviews is fantastic. Graphics are clean and crisp although not without the occasional error or glitch. I have not encountered anything game breaking personally.

The career mode is probably where I will spend most of my time. In a similar way to the 'be a pro' mode in Fifa games you start as a green and eager 16 year old and work your way through your local team through to the international arena honing and developing your skills along the way.


Another major positive for me is the ability to mod the game with real player and team likenesses and the continued support by the developer to patch in functional and bug improvements. Currently the co-op mode is missing but this is to be patched in at a later time. I appreciate the effort to get the game to the market and it clearly has been designed and developed by people who love the game. Once co-op mode has been release I can see this becoming a very popular feature.

In short, if you are a cricket fan and you are sitting on the fence about this game then I can assure you there is enough here to keep you entertained. It plays more like cricket than any other game I have played. If you need me, I'll be in the nets.

WARNING:

You need a permanent connection online to play this game. There are also problems when connecting, even when your firewall is disabled. The developers say its a piracy issue but people without a permanent online connection will be tempted to download the pirated version to play single player mode. So read the fine print before purchasing this game.

The game is superb when getting it to play though. Its very realistic with many user options and features.

You know I cannot watch cricket, I have the attention span of a fly, so a single over is the limit at any level. Only the promise of free beer would entice.

My own career consisted of losing my junior school team a grand final by accidentally trying to catch a ball at square leg with my teeth on the final ball, in my teens I was a fast bowler who could not bat to for his life, when I reached a crease as last man, bags were packed and engines were running. Now I am a batting god, not quite hit a hundred but I am getting close.

So onto Don Bradman Cricket, after the disappointment of a recent foray into cricket, I was excited for this game, almost double dipped on the earlier console release. But I got alarmed when I saw video of a pre release copy with bugs - well I can assure you this game has polish, I have not seen a single bug, in fact it's my favourite release this year, GTA V will obliterate that crown, still DBC I kinda like you a lot. It's essential for anyone with an interest in the sport and is easily the best adaptation released so far.

The game for a small studio is incredibly well thought out, all round, especially in terms of controls, they also care, it's been pleasing to see the tweaks and updates since I bought the game. It's also a good looking game and the crack of willow never gets old in the audio department.

I fully recommend this game, but please note I don't play online, also a sneak batting tip hold the triggers down and release on the shot decision you decide to make. It's a deep game which will reward in time, not so much pick and play, reading the manual in the game directory is highly recommended.

Finally I advise with the publisher's history if you decide to buy the game, buy sooner than later, the rugby games published by TruBlu on Steam vanished without notice and rarely got discounted.

Wonderful game, well done Big Ant, and thanks for reading.

Ok the graphics are good but not the best I have ever seen. Community support for current national/State/County/etc teams is fantastic. Even up-to-date umpires can be downloaded!

Some things I love about this game:

-Net practise actually relates to matchplay (unlike most cricket games).
-Every over is NOT a 16-24 run over.
-You are actually rewarded experience-wise to play three defensive shots an over, and playing yourself in (gaining confidence) makes batting easier later.
-Weather & pitch condition matter. You WILL run out of time in some 4-day and test matches.
-Bowling does seem a little too easy at the moment, however, I have only been playing on easier settings so far.
-The orthodox cricket shots for a specific ball get you the best results over time.
-Has some small things that need tweaking but....
this is easily the Best Cricket game I have ever played!

Best cricket game out.
PRO:
Custom teams
Sharing of teams/players
Career mode
Lots of shot selections
Lots of bowling options
Fun community
First game to do pitch degrading well.
Bowling is now fun.

CON:
you MUST have a controller. cannot play without.
LBW is not automated - you have to know the rules.

Mainly, its really fun.
if you want a quick 10over game or if you want to play a 5 day test. its all up to you.
