3DAvenue has posted their hands on preview of Ricky Ponting Cricket 2006.
"Perhaps the biggest surprise is just how much of a simulation the game is trying to be. While there is a mode called Slogfest where you can belt six after six, it doesn't happen very often in other modes. The game is all about risk and reward. Do you go for the big six and hope you hit the middle, or play the safe shot through the covers? This is a decision you make every ball and timing is everything. Hit it on the meat and even the perfect ball will be sent through to the boundary but miss time it and the perfect shot can end up spilling to be a catch. This is what makes the game so brilliant and why cricket gamers should be so excited. It's also aimed to end the boredom that can set in for casual gamers with cricket gamers."
