What an extremely dull sounding game.

not really, just like any other sports game. If you don't like the sport you probably won't like the game.

I played the previous ashes game and as a casual cricket fan, i quite enjoyed it, hopefully will be a demo before it is released then i can give it a try before deciding on buying or not.

I can remember playing an old Brian Lara game, and to be frank, it was as boring as it sounded.

I can understand why some people may see this as a dull game, but there are plenty of cricket fans across the world who will be excited about this. As a cricket fan myself am looking forward to it, but will wait until drops in price first like I do with all my purchases. If you understand the rules of cricket then you may find it a really compelling game. I think the previous games have been good but could do with better graphics.

I hope they give us an exciting game. Would have really loved it if they released an IPL game, it's long overdue!
