Ashes Cricket 2013 Trailer - a Huge Problem
There are trailers for games that quite literally make you wonder, "Why?" Just "Why"? And this new Ashes Cricket 2013 piece of footage is one of them.

In a year when we will see back-to-back Ashes series, in which England are favourites, in which there is likely to be excitement and maybe joy in the old country, you might expect the official game to include some decent footage especially as it is out in June. But watch the 'trailer' below and see if you can spot the problem. You won't need Hawkeye



Yes, zero footage of anything useful. Not even legacy shots of old TV footage of Ashes tournaments let alone actual game-play. Sure, it's a branding exercise but does it actually help anything?

It's a sports game, anyone interested knows how the game is played and knows the graphics will probably suck when compared to other games.

"There are trailers for games that quite literally make you wander why?"

I wonder why they make you wander.
