I came in here being like "No way a cricket thread has this many posts, I bet they're hiding some juicy stuff from the mods behind that harmless sounding thread".
Shows what I know.
Good read thought.

Question for those that have both:
Is it worth it buying Cricket 19, if I have Ashes 2017?
I mean any big changes to batting/bowling or new match types etc?

Unfortunately the best cricket game ever made was Brian Lara 96 on the sega megadrive and nothing else has really come close.
We had a Brian Lara game on the PS1 when i was at uni but the disc was buggered and so the game would only ever get to the coin toss and then nothing would happen, the two players would just stand around kicking the dirt now and then.

We really wanted to play it but were too cheap to buy a new copy (students) and so would leave it running for hours in the hope that it would come to life.

The problem with cricket 19 as with all cricket games ever made is that once you adjust to the game and the timing - its literally too easy. You can do ridiculous things especially when batting and it loses the feel of cricket. I would like a game that somehow feels like it captures the skill and ebb and flow of cricket but don't think we'll see that in my lifetime.

Even on higher difficulties?

Do other Australians even know what the “Hand of God” is? I sure didn’t! Soccer ain’t that popular here in terms of following professional competition.

I liked Bat of God because it was God’s luck that gave England the win. Had no idea it was a reference to something else.
Sports writers that coined the term do.

There was also the Brian Lara/ Ricky Ponting game on the PS2 by Codemasters which was decent I thought. It had a legends mode of sorts where you got to play some famous innings or spells from the history of the game.

If you have wii there is a cricket game on it as well. You can do motion and stuff.

Real cricket 19 is my jam now a days because of online play and ease of access. I can play it during breaks.

At Edgbaston watching the T20 blast or whatever its called and Ashton Agar is hitting the ball alright. Australia should call him up, couldn't be worse than any one of the dozen Marsh brothers they keep selecting.
