Question - would you say it's possible to play and enjoy this, if you don't (like me) understand every tiny rule of the actual sport? See I know the gist of it, and enough to enjoy watching it on the telly and that, but I don't understand all the position names etc, etc.
I'd say so. I found that playing cricket games actually helped teach me the positions and whatnot.
Just had another bash. Experimented by putting Monty in to bat once I'd lost a wicket, and he at least could hold a bat properly, but his confidence started out extremely low, and didn't increase much after an over of blocking.
I've had one catch so far, but didn't really know what I was meant to be doing. I think you have to press the A button when the word 'CATCH' flashes on the screen, but I haven't had one since so I can't be sure. I've also worked out what the camera is doing. It follows the ball for a bit, then pans out to the nearest fielder. I've just never had a cricket game do that before, so it's a bit disconcerting.
