I have a controller now, so maybe I can actually play it. Is it fun for someone who knows very little about cricket though?

I would say so. It's fun to bat in particular, and bowl to a lesser degree (although I found bowling easier to master). Fielding I simulate through because I find that boring!

A lot of the tactical things like field positions etc. are handled by loads of defaults, so you don't need to dip into that if you don't want to. I'm not sure if there's still a demo knocking around for the PC version, although IIRC you could only practise in the nets in that anyway.

There is a demo of the latest version on Steam

Cheers! I'll give the demo a try. Even if it's just part of the gameplay, it might give me a feel for if I would like it.

Yeah give it a crack. The controls are quite difficult at first, but once you get used to them it is a lot better/more realistic than other cricket games Thup

Wasn't sure if Ashes Cricket should go in here or the other thread, but boy it is fun!

Builds on DBC nicely and the depth of career mode is great - I'm playing suburban cricket for the club down the road from my house for god's sake!

(Granted I don't know why Michael Slater is commentating on Midland v Armadale or why Midland now has mountains...)

Aye I've ordered that anyway so it'll be tough shite for me if it isn't.

In possibly the shittest wicket ever seen, I managed to trap a man caught behind off my slow, bouncy offspin by him mis-hitting a shot into bat pad and then the keeper catching the ballooning ball.

Ok. Mrgreen
