Best Cricket game ever made, if not one of the best sports games i have ever played!

Very addictive, you cant just play 1 game at a time. Just starting out in a career as a 16 year old fast bowler/batsman. The ability to simulate the game until it is your turn to bat or bowl is good if you don't want to sit around and watch the others pile on the runs while you sit in the pavilion waiting your turn.

Big thumbs up to Big Ant Studios for producing an amazing game.
If you love Cricket then this is a must, if you don't this is still a great sports game and a great way to set foot in the the amazing sport.

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.

This is by far the best cricket game ever made, this does not however mean that everything in the game is awesome. One thing I find very difficult in this game is the steep learning curve for batting and bowling. Bowling is probably a tad easier than batting since batting involves making all your decisions in mere seconds which includes footwork, line and length and direction all in 1 second. That being said does not necessarily mean that the batting is broken, on the contrary if your footwork, timing and shot selection is spot on you are in for something amazing. A lot of people do not understand why they find edges even after timing the ball perfectly and choosing the right shot selection, but they forget that the 3rd element in batting the direction of your feet when playing the shot. The only way to master the batting is time in the nets, and alot of it.

Overall this game is by far the best cricket game, no cricket game before this come close and it is definately worth the money for cricket fans. Casual players will maybe get frustrated by the batting and bowling controls because of the complexity, but I love it, the game tends more to a simulation than being an arcade cricket game. You will not be hitting 6 sixes in one over that easily and when you achieve this you can actually be proud, since it is a feat.

Gameply: 9
Graphics: 7
Sound: 7

Final Score: 8

I hope this helps, enjoy!

Wow, finally a cricket game worth playing!!!

A couple of days in and I've created a couple of players and am enjoying taking them through their first season.

In my first match I spent 30 overs fielding at deep backward square leg and took a screamer of a catch before I worked out there is a menu option to simulate to your players next involvement either with the bat or the ball.

The leg spinning all-rounder is challenging having bowled a few overs to reset myself and concentrate on batting as the next task although the bowling mechanics are fun and challenging at the same time. The specialist batsman is great to play a few shots with, but I am struggling to keep my concentration, particularly if I've managed to get onto a couple of early boundaries (the same issue I had in real life)!

My highlights after approx 15 hours? Taking a 5 wicket haul for SA against Tassie and the 50 I scored for Derbyshire with my young opener off 13 balls!

The only gripes I have with the game are the commentary being inserted at random as about 1/2 the time it doesnt make sense (so I've taken to playing music at the same time) and the grounds...I've had an English County game and SA v Tas at the MCG! These are small issues though when compared to the important part of a cricket game...do the mechanics feel engaging, fluid and as though you are controlling your player...in short, yes!

This game is fun to play and being a cricket game has enough stats to keep a cricket fan entertained. Do I like my batting average being just under 30? No; will I keep playing to improve it? Yes!

That is what this genre has been missing since Shane Warne/Brian Lara's cricket in the late 90s...a game worth playing!

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.

Simply put, the best cricket game of this generation (and the previous one combined).

You need a gamepad (preferably an Xbox 360 controller) to play the game on your PC due to the nature of the controls. You need an analog stick to accuractely place your shots. A keyboard just will NOT work.

Once you get hang of the controls, ball physics and other awesome mechanics of this game, you will truly fall in love with it.

There are definitely issues with a few jerky animations here and there and a little boring and monotonous commentary, the great gameplay easily makes up for these issues.

Pros:
- Great gameplay for a Cricket game, easily the best of this and the last generation combined.
- Detailed controls. Easy enough to start hitting boundaries and sixers but really hard to master.
- Great replays, DRS (Decision Review System), ball mechanics and other fun stuff including lots and lots of statistics.
- Online Multiplayer mode with the ability to save games to continue later (You can play full Test matches with your friends).
- Lots and lots of very realistic looking players and and team uniforms.
- Many game modes including a Career mode, tournaments, competitions and casual play.
- Great comfortable camera angles to choose from.
- Did I say you can field manually?
- Full ability to make changes to teams and players through the Don Bradman Academy. Now play your favorite historical cricket players!
- The most realistic and fun cricket game for many years now.

Middleground:
- Steep learning curve.
- Could do with a field mini-map during balling and batting.
- Decent graphics and audio (excluding commentary).
- Requires an Xbox 360 controller for Windows.
- Not a great teacher for those new to Cricketing rules etc. (Not an issue for cricket lovers)

Cons:
- Twitchy animations sometimes.
- Due to the complex nature of the game, there are some bugs and issues which should hopefully be ironed out quickly. As of this review, such issues are few and dont really bother too much.
- Commentary can get boring fast.
- Lack of "Voice Chat / Typing Chat" during multiplayer matches. You have to use Steam, TeamSpeak, etc. for it.

If you are a cricket lover and own a gamepad to play this with, get Don Bradman Cricket 14 now! And if you don't own a gamepad, still get this game and buy an Xbox 360 controller ASAP!

Now I am done selling this, go and get it!

Edit: Made a few changes to the Pros and Cons list.

We finally have a cricket game that surpases shane warne cricket 99 and Cricket 07 from EA. So much detail into the smaller things that matter and a fresh new way to play. 9.8 out 10 Its a master of cricket games, deserves hall of fame . Im glad to see you can play old teams and not just current ones it even brings a career mode where you star as young rising star. This game deserves every penny it asks for, i say this because if the people behind this game continue down this path there are some very exciting times down the line.

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.

This is easily the best Cricket game I've ever played. Using the analog sticks as controls makes the game harder than previous Cricket games I've played at first but is far more satisfying once you master it. The amount of customisation of the game from players, teams, leagues, clothes to gear is something I haven't seen before in a Cricket game. I would recommend anyone that is interested in sports games to buy this.

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!!!!

Easily the best cricket game ever made.

The learning curve can be steep but the rewards are there if you put in the time and effort.

It can be a bit fiddly to start with as the controls are nothing like any cricket game ever made, so persevere and you'll be rewarded.

For every wicket you take there is a sense of pride, just like when you score some runs.

For me I've found the batting to be the hardest part, whereas bowling is tough but like I said rewarding.

This game is well worth your time and effort.

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.

This is unquestionably miles better than any other cricket game to date. Its control scheme just makes sense, its realisation of the game's laws is detailed and faithful and its physics engine finally allows for satisfying edges. There are a few little details which reveal the small budget available in the development in this game, most pertinently the poor animation of the crowds, and a few bugs, the most obvious of which have already been patched, but they cannot stop this game from being just miles ahead of all other efforts in this space.

If you are a cricket fan, buy this game. It's that simple. If you're not, you're probably not going to enjoy it. The detail and difficulty of the game (very reflective of the actual game of cricket itself) will appeal to cricket fans and make others absolutely despise the game, if I'm a good judge of human nature.

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.
