Don Bradman Cricket 14–Official Trailer

SAFE

So after the absolutely disgusting debacle that was Ashes Cricket 2013 it looks like us cricket fans are going to be saved by the great Australian cricketer, Don Bradman.

Don Bradman Cricket 14 has just released their official trailer and while trailers can hide numerous ills it does at least look to be a huge improvement on Ashes Cricket 2013.

Mind you most of what went down the toilet this morning was a massive improvement on that Ashes mess.

There has been no release date announced yet for Don Bradman 14 and with their only competitor pulled from the shelves and all eyes on their product I don’t expect them to rush anything. The market is there for the taking and they’d be insane to mess this one up.

My only gripe… why Don Bradman of all people? How about Jacque Kallis, Sachin Tendulkar or even Graeme Gooch?

If you haven’t already then head on over here and read up about all the feature’s that will be included in Don Bradman 14.

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • That Tall Twit

    LOL @ ‘better than that other crap’ tag.
    On a serious note, we REALLLLLLY need a good cricket game. It has been ages.

    • Spathi

      One with player XP, nice co-op options, simulated fatigue, simulated ball physics, real atmospheric simulation – Some real in depth stuff!

      • Admiral Chief of Souls

        All those, less the cricket!

        • Spathi

          hehe, you really don’t like sport games? I haven’t really played a cricket game since Brian Lara on the PS2 or 1, not sure, and before that Jonty Rhodes/Alan Border cricket. But thos games were great fun with friends!

  • Lardus-Resident Perve

    Well, does look better. Still I am not going to buy it.

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    At least the animation looks better 😛

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    PFFTTT… I still have BRIAN LARA CRICKET (PSOne)! That’s all the cricket game I’ll ever need.

    • Anon A Mouse

      That wasn’t a bad cricket game actually. Although I’m sure it didn’t age very well.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Yeah, it looks like ass these days (lol), but I’m yet to find a cricket game that can beat it gameplay-wise.

    • Hammersteyn

      I still have a Jonty Rhodes rom for the SEGA…….. Yeah not the same thing but still fun to play.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I think I might still have Alan Border Cricket tucked away somewhere on a non-round & shiny disk.

      • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

        Same game as Jonty Rhodes cricket 😛

        We checked way back in the day, was no difference

    • Alex

      Ashes cricket 2009 was by far the best one I suppose! DBC14 just taking it to the other dimention…. better!!! 🙂

  • Anon A Mouse

    The bowler physics are off, only the spin bowlers are actually looking where they are bowling. All the speedsters are making sure the front foot is behind the line. But it does look as if there might be something here.

    As for Don Bradman, probably because he holds the highest average in test cricket and is regarded as the best player ever. (Although there will be a debate around this.)

    • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

      Nah, just about every fast bowler’s head drops upon delivery. My problem is all the quickies in this trailer have the same bowling action.

  • Hammersteyn

    Might buy it, big might.

    • Admiral Chief of Souls

      I might run the comrades, big might

      • TiMsTeR1033

        I might become normal, big might lol

        • That Tall Twit

          Might buy an Xbone, BIG MIGHT!

          • TiMsTeR1033

            that is actually quite possible..

        • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

          Nah, that’s just being wishful

  • Mauritz Van Zyl

    This game with something like the Frostbite 2 or Crytek engine would be amazing.

    • Admiral Chief of Souls

      And some guns!!!

  • TiMsTeR1033

    cricket games are just meh…

    • Hammersteyn

      It’s fun with a friend or two, with some beers and a braai as well.

      • TiMsTeR1033

        Then and only then!

  • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

    I’ll wait till it’s actually released before deciding to buy it…

  • Rock789

    Guess I’ll have to stick with “Jonty Rhodes Cricket”… On DOS!

    • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

      Dosbox FTW!

  • dafis

    why don bradman of all people? perhaps because he averages nearly 40 more than the next retired player in graeme pollock u spud

  • Ruan Engelbrecht

    EA Cricket 97 will always be the best cricket game ever!

    • Dosman

      Super International Cricket, may not have looked pretty, but it was fun to play.

  • Willem Swanepoel

    Nothing will beat STICK CRICKET … !!!

    • Alex

      Do you call yourself a Gamer? How old r u kid? 😀

      • Willem Swanepoel

        oh no the horror, I have to label myself … OH NOOO SAVE ME!!!

  • AJ Titanium

    drawn bad man cricket. this looks k*k like all the other cricket games ever. Stickcricket on ESPN is better than this push a button rubbish

  • Guest

    Am I the only one to notice the right palm of the bolwler (pause at 10 sec) a little deformed!! seems like he is wearing some palm-cover (not a gloves though) 😛 .
    GREAT!! AMAZING WORK DONE!!! Beautiful game we’ll be having.
    For the next versions, well, we should see some CROWD movements, BETTER CHARACTER Models and quite a LOT of SPECIAL EFFECTS on pitches, ropes and on the field; as the players interacting with all that.

    Ashes 2013 was awesome, I don’t know what all the fuss is about…. getting all out for 7 runs is realistic enough.
