The Wii edition of Ashes Cricket 2009 enables up to four players to take to the field in a variety of game modes including the iconic Ashes Series, Test Matches and limited over games including 20 Overs. Batsmen use the Wii Remote to drive, cut, slog and nurdle their way through an innings. When fielding, players use the Wii Remote to polish the ball, set their field and bowl accurately applying swing/turn to their deliveries in order to take those all important wickets.
Ashes Cricket 2009 also features a Scenario Mode that pits players against more than 50 match defining moments, such as scoring vital match-winning runs, taking dramatic last-gasp wickets and seeing off the oppositions' danger men to succeed. Ashes Cricket 2009 features six other Test playing nations as well as ten of the world's most recognisable stadia, including the five featuring in this summer's npower Ashes Series.
