My first cricket game on the PS2 – I had Shane Warne Cricket on PS1 which I absolutely loved playing. Ricky Ponting Cricket is a solid and respectable release for the PS2 console though it can do with some improvements:
- fix that annoying habit of the wicket keeper knocking off the bails when the batsman are obviously safe.
- use the cricketers real names for the entire game not just the World Cup.
- liven up the commentary where they say the cricketers' names a lot more often and put some enthusiasm into their voices – the commentary on Shane Warne Cricket was excellent.
- include tours.
Otherwise it's an excellent game and recommended to all who like a good game of cricket.
