Synopsis and Features
Cricket 2009 is about celebrating the glory of cricket. The game has plenty of game modes and 12 teams from different countries that you can select to play with. Developed by Transmission Games and published by Codemasters, Ashes promises hours of exciting cricketing action.
The minimum requirements for the game to run easily on your computer are Windows XP or Vista, 2 Ghz Pentium processor, 2.5 GB hard disk space, 1 GB RAM, GeForce 6800 or Radeon X1600 graphics card. The game’s single player mode lets you select any team of your choice and play the game for a win. Cricket 2009 has 6 different game modes such as The Ashes, Test Cricket, One-Day International, Twenty20, Legends Mode and Customisation.
Each mode is interesting as it provides something different that the other. For passionate lovers of cricket who like enjoying long sessions of gaming can opt for the Test matches. One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 follow the same rules as the game and are much for exciting and fun to play. The customization lets you customize editing tools, rename players, reassign skill points, and adjust visual sliders for players and much more.
The game has a competitive AI. This helps you in improving your skills and abilities every time you play the game. The game has some interesting features such as Hawk-Eye prediction that resemble real on-TV predictions, making the game more involving. The game has intuitive bowling and batting mechanisms that make it more interactive. The interesting thing about batting is that you have to be quick on your fingers as timing matters a lot. One miss and you might be looking at the broken stumps staring out you.
The game also has a simulate function that allows you to skip parts of an on-going match. If you like a particular aspect of a game like only bowling or only batting, you can select this option. This will allow you to skip over an entire innings, if required, letting you do what you love.
Featuring 18 cricket stadiums from all over the world, you can play the game from the famous Eden Gardens in India, Queen's Park Oval in West Indies to Melboune Cricket Ground in Australia. The graphics are pleasing and each stadium resembles a real stadium, giving the game a vivid and brilliant atmosphere.
If you want to rival against others and show off your cricketing skills you can do it with Ashes: Cricket 2009. The game supports friendly and ranked matches that you can play online. These matches can be played in various disciplines including twenty20. The ranked matches are much more fun as they assign you ranks based on your winning rate.
You can with play with gamers across the world by connecting through an in-game application. This provides for much fiercer and competitive gameplay as you will be playing against human counterparts. The patches, demos and trailers for the game can be downloaded directly from the company’s website.

Frequently Bought Together With This Product
This game is simply awesome because of its realistic features.
I am a hardcore cricke-game fan and i have never been satisfied with any other game. Cricket is so real in this game. The bowling tactics, batting flexibility. I have been playing EA Sports Cricket since 2004 and let me compare this with EA Sports latest Cricket 07.
If you're batting in EA Sports in a test match then sure you will be bored because of the bogus tactics of fielding side BUT here will be constantly be engaged because of
1. the frequent bowling changes ( as happens in real world)
2. variation in line-and-length so that you can play almost all shots in cricket
3. one boring thing in ea sports was if you're a left handed batsmen then the right handed bowler will always bowl from over the wicket & mostly on his legs & same with right handed batsman with left handed bowler .. BUT Not with this game
4. enhancing skills of a player ( suppose a player like Raina scoring a century , playing perfectly timed shots , hitting some number of sixes will earn some skill points that you can use to add to Raina's Batting Attributes in Player Editor ) , unlocking stadiums , kit bags ( bats, pads etc) by scoring the fastest century (56 balls in test , 37 in odi) etc.
And many more surprisingly real features, so
I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS GAME WITH MY EYES CLOSED...
loved this game. It's graphics rock. Take your wii remote and enter the world of virtual cricket you can help india to win the ashes in the new world called virtual world help india win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Codemasters really did a hell of a job making this one, its graphics are really good for a cricket game (i played it on a Windows 7 HP laptop), and while the batting animations are quite satisfying, the bowling actions really stick out from the otherwise-neat design of this game. It features fully licensed teams of England and Australia with strikingly realistic faces(you'll have to edit the other names, if you are one for realism like me). Whatever little messed up bits exist in the game, they can all be clearly shadowed with AWESOME hawk-eye and equally brilliant professional voice-talent.
I never was one for sports games, but ever since I started on this one, I've abandoned every FPS and every RPG on my laptop.
So, cricket fan-or not just do yourself a favour, guys and atleast check this one out.......
This game is not perfect, yet I have given it the full 5 stars. Why? Because of two reasons:
1. It is the best Cricket game out there.
2. The low price.
-Immersive game-play. Batting is just addictive and bowling is also decent, although I admit that I never like bowling in video games..
-As the cricketers controlled by you make runs, bowl well or take catches, they earn extra skill points which you can spend to improve them.
-Even with keyboard controls, you can hit shots in any direction! Of course, if the direction is not suitable to the shot, you risk losing your wicket.
-The AI will not give much of a challenge even at Hard difficulty.
-No of wickets taken by catches is much more than bowled, lbw or caughr behind/by slips.
-Only Australian and English squads have the original player names, others have fictitious ones. Although you can edit this easily.
As the title says, in my opinion, this is the best cricket game out there.
