All aspects of the game, bowling, batting and fielding are very intuitive and fun.
The game features a career mode where you take control of a young 16 year old aspiring cricketer and take him through his entire career, earning skills and XP as you play matches. You can choose to be an all-rounder, a batsman, a bowler or even a wicket keeper.
One bad thing is the commentary. It is dreadful and becomes repetitive and boring really quickly.
This is a great first attempt by ANT Studios and I think the deserved to be supported for their great efforts.
Cricket is inherently a slow yet tasteful and extremely difficult game. These characteristics introduce so many different things that can happen on the ground in any one game that it is quite difficult to fit all of that in a mold and avoid monotonous game play. This game does not do this well. The "realism" puts that cherry on top and makes a 5-star game and a truly memorable experience. (Hint: The Last of Us). Don Bradman 14 unfortunately lost one star here. But all the other stars are still shining bright.
This small company tried a bold fresh approach to create a new game play engine and they have definitely succeeded. I am not going to talk about some offline and online bugs that I am hopeful that a couple of patches in later half of 2014 will aim to fix (Patch 1 is already out in April 2014). But overall, it is a stellar effort at breathing some fresh air into this artsy gentlemen's game of chance.
Just the plethora of options to customize everything in this game is a wow factor. Be it editing teams and players, game play, or cameras. There is a lot that can be controlled, and it is always a good thing, not just for the end-users, but for future patch developers on the back end.
The animations are also great, the graphics are not bad, but they do feel like the 2011 generation on a very big TV like 55 inches. I am sure if the size of the TV is small around 32-40 inches, the graphics will definitely look sharper with denser pixel area for 720p resolution.
Last but not the least, this game has gained a huge community support on PlanetCricket and Facebook, and availability in USA (although expensive) gain it a star. This support will essentially fuel the future patch development effort as some senior members of the company are active on those forums.
This game has the potential to answer the very first question that is still left unanswered - infusing dynamic realism in a game like cricket. Can future patches or simply a new Don Bradman game release in a couple of years make it full of life? If you like cricket and thought of playing a video game, this is a must buy.
Create player using cricket academy, Big ant review system, Some nice game play mechanics like Inside edges, Bad-pad catches etc are unique for the cricket game.
But as i said this game is a start up game. Graphics look outdated. Animations are glitchy (especially fielders taking catches) and consists of lot of bugs (Especially run outs). AI for this game needs a lot of improvement.
Gameplay is the core liking aspect of this game as of now. Big ant is working on 2 patches for this game which will resolve major bugs. But in my opinion the next iteration of this game series needs lot of polish in several areas. The price is high when compared to what you are getting. To support the big ant studios for a better game, I think they deserve the money.
Patch 1 is live and fixed most of the annoying bugs like run outs, direct hits etc. Waiting for patch 2.
Down to the serious stuff:people who say this game suck are stupid and unappreative of hard work.Big Ant Studios worked hard on this game and it may have problems including superhuman fielding and no ICC tournaments but I still find it as a good
To the people who say this game sucks: U should make ur own cricket Video game If u don't like DBC14 or shove it up

But was expecting new cricket games to have correct name of players and more variety of commentators. Ashes 2009 has better shot selection and trophy cabinet
