    International Cricket Captain 2014 Review

    Childish Things release an update to their evergreen Cricket Captain (formerly International Cricket Captain) series each year, and every year I am beset by a quandary – are the year-to-year changes enough to justify purchasing the new version? Especially when, on the surface, the most visible changes relate to player transfers and statistical updates, it […]

    International Cricket Captain 2012 (iOS) Review

    When I first opened up the new iOS version of Childish Things’ renowned International Cricket Captain series, the game mirrored reality. While the real Jacques Kallis made Ricky Ponting fall flat on his face with a yorker, taking his dignity alongside his wicket, the virtual version was making hay after Brendon McCullum fell early, belting […]

    International Cricket Captain 2012 Review

    Having recently sat down to review the most recent installment in the Cricket Coach franchise, it’s now time for me to get to grips with a different kettle of fish. The International Cricket Captain games are no stranger to me, for indeed, I spent many hours in the evenings of my school days acquainting myself […]

    Cricket Coach 2012 Review

    It was just over twelve months ago that I sat down to write the Cricketweb review for Cricket Coach 2011. Whilst my overall impressions of the game were very positive, it was prevented from being truly great by a few small niggles which let it down. A year on and I’m sitting down again, this […]

    Cricket Coach 2011 Review

    As an avid fan of cricket and sports management sims, it’s perhaps strange that until recently I had never before picked up a copy of any game from the Cricket Coach series. Despite hearing positive things from various sources I was determined to stick with what I knew and continued to play each the version […]

    International Cricket 2010 Review

    Twelve months ago I reviewed Ashes Cricket 2009, and remember being left with a bitter taste in the back of my throat. I actually went back to it in a brief, unthinking, moment last winter – having convinced myself that it couldn’t have been quite as bad as I’d remembered. It was worse. Last year’s […]

  • Ashes Cricket 2009

    Ashes Cricket 2009 Review

    I wanted this game to be good. Really, I did. I’ve played virtually every single cricket game I could ever get my hands on: ICC, Brian Lara, EA’s series – PlayStation, PC and Mega Drive… and every time there’s always been something missing.

  • Cricket Coach 2009

    Cricket Coach 2009 Review

    ‘A worthy addition to the Cricket Coach series, Cricket Coach 2009 has improvements to its 2007 incarnation which enhance the playing experience whilst staying true to its roots. Perhaps a little too good.’ The cricket coaching genre has been dominated by the International Cricket Captain series of games and with good reason; Empire Games has […]

    International Cricket Captain 2009 Review

    When the opportunity to play and review the latest incarnation in the International Cricket Captain presented itself to me, it was one I was eager to snap up. I have enjoyed previous versions of the game and got plenty of hours trying to lead various counties to glory. So what would the 2009 version offer? […]

  • Brian Lara Cricket 99/Shane Warne Cricket 99

    Brian Lara Cricket 99/Shane Warne Cricket 99 Review

    After the disappointments of CWC 99, SWC 99 quenched our thirst for a decent, playable, arcade cricket simulation. After having played Cricket 2002 for a week now, going back to SWC 99 was like, well, going back a few years in time. The graphics were what you expect from a PSone game, with some terrible […]
