    One of the bugs was that all the people who looked like they should have been wearing helmets were not, and all the people who were wearing helmets, didn't look like they really needed to be.

    What's that? That's normal cricket?

    So what was the problem? Did they make a game so realistic that it captured the boredom of the real sport?

    By the looks of it they managed the impossible; to create a game even more boring and frustrating than the real thing

    If you are not a fan of the sport, the door is that way bud.

    The graphics look bad and the crowd look like a painted pattern. Even EA's Cricket games and Codemasters' Brian Lara games were much better!

    You don't need to understand cricket to understand that there's something not quite... right going on here.

    This game was clearly never tested, at all. Maybe the studio ran out of time, maybe they ran out of money. Maybe both.

    Shame.

    It reminds me of some of the really early CS bots that would have some very odd behaviour unless you created them a specific map path.
