Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Don Bradman Cricket 14 (PS3) (Video Game)
For cricket fans this is a case of beggars can't be choosers.
After such a long wait for a new cricket game the only thing that keeps me smiling about Bradman 14 is that, well, it's a new cricket game.
Despite the fallout from the aborted Ashes 13, Don Bradman 14 fails to live up to the hype.
It has a significant amount of bugs, some of which have already been highlighted in recent reviews.
In my case, one of my custom players was randomly chosen as an umpire. Another was randomly selected to play for the England 1930's team.
Game play is clunky, batting difficult but bowling too easy.
The lack of licenced stadia is a major drawback as the limited number of generic options gets boring after a while.
Graphics are very disappointing and not particularly smooth which is common with other sports games such as Rugby Challenge and AFL Live.
It's saving grace as the level of customisation and the ability to download customised players from the online community.
It's not great, but it is addictive nonetheless although you could argue that International Cricket 2010 remains a better game.

I'm not going to argue with you that International Cricket 2010 remains a better game. What a pity that Codemasters can't get it together, to produce a decent English-based cricket game, instead of having to depend on the antipodeans. Maybe they could use the name of an equally famous batsman similar to the one Big Ant chose, and then too, it will sell to the cricket loving gamers out there, even if it also leaves much to be desired.

International cricket 2010 is ok but it does not capture the essence of cricket. Every ball has a marker before the ball is bowled, this is not real cricket!
In this game, if you play on hard and remove all indicators it is exactly like real cricket, you have no idea where the bowl will be bowled and have to choose your shot based on the ball bowled. This is extremely difficult, but is purely realistic.
International cricket 2010 is a good arcade game of cricket. This is a pure simulation. It does have bugs but the essence of the game it captures, and I have never felt that in a cricket game.
