At least have someone with atleast a vague understanding of the sport to talk about this game.

I seem to say this every single time an article on a sports game is realised, but here we go:

Good work. Looks good. Now someone get to work on a new Rugby game.
Don't do it!

Codies delivered well on Wii's Overlord visuals, but F1 2009, DIRT 2 and now this are, to use a cricket term - batting below average!

Below is a screenshot from this Wii version:

Now here is a screenshot of Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 on PS2, also made by Codemasters - so how come a 2 year old game on an inferior powed console, made by the same developer actually looks better than whats on offer now??? ... een001.jpg

Below is a screenshot of EA's Cricket 07 on PS2, which also shows up this latest Wii 'effort' ... een010.jpg

If this makes no use of the Motion Plus or has no online modes it will be a complete waste of a title that has great potential on Wii. Include both and this will happily sit alongside the likes of Grand Slam and Tiger Woods 10, omit both and use these shoddy visuals and you've lost over half your market already!
