5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best cricket game made to date., 15 April 2014
Cricket is an extremely hard sport to make a good game of. No developer since Codemasters with their Brian Lara '99 & Shane Warne Cricket '99 titles has made a game with as positive a response as this from Big Ant. This game has about a hundred more features than those old titles and has obviously been made by huge fans of the sport.

The attention to detail in relation to features is just ridiculous, with manual appealing finally in a game, along with their version of the DRS system (BARS), a kind of hotspot feature, customisable field settings, a huge range of ways to bat and bowl, the powerplay and free hit features, downloadable players and teams. You can create your own competitions, tours, play online. If it relates to cricket, you can pretty much be sure it's there.

All of this plays really well and many cricket gaming fans have complained about the stupidly easy difficulty of past games and this game comes with 5 difficulty levels, so there's something for everyone.

The batting has been said by some to be "too hard", well that's been said by many a gamer very early into a purchase and those are the games with longevity, because we all get good at things to the point of them getting a lot easier. I'm sure that'll happen here as my scores have been steadily creeping up.

Bowling is a little easy at times, but I'm playing on Pro and sometimes Veteran right now, there's still Legend to go and I'm a long way off that!

As far as support, Big Ant have stated that if there are minor tweaks required by the majority of gamers, they'll make them and are in the process of releasing the first patch for the game, which will for one facet, deal with the extremely good fielders and stumps getting broken a bit too often. Their team is obviously listening to their fans and seem to hope to make an already very good game, even better.

I can only hope they make more of these games in the future, because this is an excellent platform to start with!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I was there!, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parklive [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
What a great concert to own. Damon, Graham, Alex and Dave were all on the top of their game and gave this concert to close the London Olympics their all. As for the dvd, the sound is excellent, the vocals clear, the editing and cutaways to crowds etc are timed well. The atmosphere really comes through and our family has watched this concert four times in a week and Blur's previous Hyde Park concert (which was pretty awesome too), was only watched about twice in the same time-frame. I'm not sure what to list as a stand-out track, because every single one was performed as though it was the last time it'd be heard, which I hope isn't the case, despite Damon hinting at it in the media. The crowd (which is not overly washed into the mix) seemed to know nearly every song most of the way through and were in pretty fine voice themselves at times. Even if your not particularly a Blur fan, I'm sure this would still rate a healthy four stars from most. I wish this was available on Blu Ray. Arrived on Christmas Eve, perfect timing!!!!
