So there's no good cricket games around still? I kind of lost hope in ever seeing one that was anywhere near realistic, was one of the reasons I almost forgot about this site.

TAOC was a glimmer of hope for a few years, but that's dead and buried now unfortunately.

:(

You've heard of Big Ant Cricket and Ashes Cricket 2013, haven't you?
Yeah, and I hope I'm wrong with my expectations for both of them.

Big Ant - I had a look at their website and there's next to no info on it apart from bold promises.

Ashes - I got burned for buying the pile of turd that 09 was, played IC10 and didn't like it, not expecting much better this time around.

Maybe I'm being too cynical, but following cricket games for the last few years hasn't given much reason for hope!

Yes I'm cynical too. I'm not sure about Big Ant, but Ashes 2013 are trying to be really transparant about what they're thinking and how they're making the game. Cheif's ongoing presence on the forums and answering most questions is somewhat reassuring, since in the past we've been mostly shunned by developers.

So I'm hopeful for Ashes 2013, with Big Ant as a possible back-up. It's at least nice to know there will be two 3D cricket games coming out next year. 2011 and 2012 were desert wastelands.

I'll give both of them a fair try anyway, and you're right in saying that it's better to have two cricket games out than none at all! :)

Cricket Revolution's online play is still up, but I believe the account creation option is still broken.

Otherwise cricket games with LAN play (BLIC07, Cricket Revolution and some older games) can be used with software that creates a Virtual network - Hamachi used to be the standard but I believe it has gone paid only.

I don't think that anyone can find a friendly opponent online now .

Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 & Ashes Cricket 2009 still have active servers on Xbox Live, unlike on PS3/PSN.

I've also heard International Cricket 2010 is online on Xbox 360.

Anyone up for playing some old X360 cricket titles online?
