Ashes Cricket is a 2017 video game created by Big Ant Studios, and released worldwide on Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, and PC (via Steam). It was the first Big Ant cricket game to be officially licensed to modern teams and players after the Don Bradman Cricket titles, and had the full licence for the 2017-18 Ashes series, which took place in Australia. Bringing all the fast paced action, big hits and skill that you see in the greatest cricket competition on earth, in both a more realistic and authentic way than ever before, you’ll be able to bathe your team in glory in the men’s and women’s 2017/2018 Ashes tours. Ashes Cricket, much like the F1 series and EA’s golf games, has the potential to grab a huge casual fanbase. Launching just ahead of the Australian Ashes, there’s opportunity that this game could be an impulse buy for many enthusiast players as well as the hardcore audience. That’s why I was so disappointed with its lacklustre tutorials. There are guides on batting, bowling and fielding, along with practice games to help further hone your skills – and none of them actually fully explain the game’s mechanics. They don’t explain what each thing does, just describe what they are. There are also multiple difficulty settings when entering a match, which don’t adequately explain what they do. Different difficulties can be selected for batting and fielding as well as an overall match difficulty, but the impact of each is not explained at all. It was only several overs after adjusting each that I noticed what they changed – making bowling harder makes the timing cursor move faster, while making it easier automatically stops you bowling a no ball, for instance. It doesn’t seem like a big stretch to explain just a bit more to help players cater their experience properly, considering the great breadth of sliders available. With that said, for those who do know their googly from their short third slips silly mid ons (each of those is an actual field position, I know, I checked), what you have here is an excellent and detailed representation of the actual sport. Ashes Cricket offers solid depth with both bat and ball when it comes to shot and delivery variation, and much like the real sport, will require a great patience to both unpack all it has to offer and rack up runs while knocking down wickets. Learning which shots to play, adapting to spin and pace bowlers and also how to take stumps yourself is a great test of skill, and Big Ant Studios has also provided two control methods for those not a fan of the classic analogue stick inputs, now presenting a more traditional button-press method which is far more user-friendly. Ashes Cricket is the officially licensed video game of cricket's greatest rivalry. Bringing all the fast-paced action, big hits and skill that you see in the greatest cricket competition on earth, in both a more realistic and authentic way than ever before, you'll be able to bathe your team in glory in the men's and women's 2017/2018 Ashes tours. Courtesy of Big Ant's unique photogrammetry technology, Ashes Cricket presents official photorealistic likenesses for all of the Australian and English men's and women's teams - it will make you feel like you're right there at the live game. Star Test players have been fully motion-captured and you can choose your own batting or bowling style to make your game your own. Big Ant's most detailed and refined cricket engine to date allows for true 360-degree batting. No two players will play the game the same way!
