Test Match cricket is an art form and a science combined - and it's one that video games have struggled with. Not this time. Ashes Cricket 2009 places you at the forefront of the greatest of all Test series, and it does so with the skill of Graham Swan breaking a post-lunch ball through the gate; and with the panache of Ricky Ponting cover-driving for yet another century. Bat and bowl, set the field, and see the highly polished AI of the classy single-player experience discover your weaknesses as you probe for the same in the opposition. Like the real game, Ashes 2009 rewards practice, patience and flair as you learn the control system - it won't take long to get to grips with, it will take time to master. Playing as either Australia or the English and Welsh XI, you also get the chance to understand how the stars work. When bowling like Harminson or Jimmy Anderson, you have to tweak the controls to get the best from their particular actions. The same applies to batting like Hussey, Strauss and even Haurtiz. Don't get too bogged down in the intricacies though - there are also one-dayers and the adrenalin-nuked 20/20 tournaments to play for truly rounded cricketing experience. All up, Ashes 2009 is the game to take you through the high and lows of the nPower series - especially during those long, long rain delays..

A twist on the spectacularly successful Wii sports genre sees SEGA, which has already reunited arch-foes Sonic and Mario in Olympic sports, bring 10 very strange events to the console. What you want to know is, what are the 10 wacky sports of the title. Here's the answer: Tuna Tossing. Furniture Racing. Fierljeppen (it's a traditional sport of the Frisians and of the Dutch that involves leaping over water using a pole!). Extreme Ironing. Card Boxing. Lawn Mower Racing. Cheese Rolling. Mud Slinging. Ice Golf. Log Cutting. So, as you can see, it's unusual and the game will take you all over the world from - obviously the Netherlands, via Australia, England and all points North, South, East and West in its crazy quest for a winner. This quest can be carried out in Tour mode, head-to-head, or in a fun four-person multiplayer mode. You also get to play through via a dozen, you guessed it, weird and wonderful characters. These include four playable characters who face eight enemies and finally a very crazy indeed boss who has to be defeated in order for the player to reign supreme. All of this madness is controlled using the Wiimote and nunchuck, so that even when the player isn't actually in action, they can watch their friends and family making fools of themselves..
