I don't really see how childish things/empire can get away with releasing a game, which in all fairness is a database update of the previous version. Up to date statistics, global competitions, aus and eng domestic competitions, it has it all, but apart from aus domestic setup so did the last 6 or 7 odd International cricket captain games.
They have not updated the graphics from the previous years, they even used the exact same menus as last years version, a measure of how lazy the developers have been. In all honesty apart from the updated data and T20 competitions, this game has not changed for 10 years.
Pros: Fairly realistic game engine, up to date statistics, good domestic competitions.
Cons: Been there done that, rehash of a game well past its sell by date, if you have last years (or any since 2008), don't bother with this.
I am no games developer, but just a few handy ideas in case they want to make a new one next year, include a player scouting interface, have non-cricketing statistics, i.e. mental traits, physical traits (height, weight, natural fitness, etc). Be able to hire and fire staff. Be able to alter grounds, bid for international matches to get extra funds. Have a more detailed player development interface. There is so much this game could be, all the developers have to do is take a look at the football manager series.
Its little wonder the developers don't release a data editor, it would make their entire team redundant.
