Ashes 2013 -- The worst computer game ever made?

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...y-8972215.html

The second video linked on that page had me in stitches from about 9:15 onward. The fielders were obviously suffering from some sort of existential crisis. I mean, really, what is the point of Cricket?

I somehow got sucked into watching the hour-long Giant Bomb Quick Look of this game the other day. An Irish guy who has a basic understanding of cricket attempted to teach two American guys how to play cricket using a game that barely follows the rules of the sport. Very funny.

Yup. This Ashes game it terrible, but Big Rigs was a fundamentally broken game in almost every way. At least this Ashes game has working AI for your opponents, even if it is terrible. In Big Rigs, the truck you're supposed to race doesn't even move.

The Giant Bomb guys did an excellent job (as ever). Hoping it comes up in the Bombcast for a few giggles too. Hilarious.

Is a bit of a shame though. I was a massive fan of BLIC 07.

Re: Ashes 2013 -- The worst computer game ever made?

Glad someone posted this . Read about it the other day and peed myself laughing. And I thought Aliens:CM couldn't be beaten. Difference is I'm almost curious to try this! I bet it will be a PC collectors item in years to come.

edit: thanks, TheGodBen, for that video. Hilarious. Highly recommended to anyone who has NO idea about cricket
