The game is based on international cricket and features all the major teams such as England, Australia and the West Indies, as well as smaller less renowned teams such as Scotland and Bangladesh.

This time EA didn't make the crease

  • Excerpt: "I am a big cricket fan, and have always been impressed with EA's sport-games. However, it is difficult to believe that Cricket 2000 was produced by the same company that did the excellent FIFA series of football games. Let's start with the good things. The graphics and sound are fine, the amount of stadium and player info is fantastic and the commentary is decent. Unfortunately this is where it stops. The key to sport-games is playability and ...
  • Pros: Very few
  • Cons: Bad playability, boring bowling and no fielding

  • Excerpt: "...it's so bad. Brian Lara Cricket is miles better than this will ever be! This game offers no challenge, you still get the same one day games, and you can bowl out teams like Australia for 2. At least EA make games with good graphics, I thought. Wrong. The grounds look very unrealistic, and the players don't seem to have the same fluid movements as in Brian Lara. If EA learn anything from this it's not to bother making a game like this ever again. You're ...
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Too many

  • Excerpt: "I really miss Brian Lara's cricket on the Sega Megadrive. What a fantastic game!. Then, I saw this arrive, and thought it would surely be an improvement. It looks fabulous. Plenty of grounds to choose from (including Amsterdam & Edinburgh??), a fine database of players (that look like the players - no white Devon Malcolm's here!),superb sound quality, and commentary from Gower & Benaud. It all looked so promising. Now the bad bit - the playability. With ...
  • Pros: Visually fantastic

  • Excerpt: "...I was very impressed. Most cricket games are boring right from the start but it wasn't until I was at least 3 weeks in that I got bored of it. I only got bored of it for 1 reason. It is so easy to win everything season after season. Do you really want to buy a game that you will be putting away with after 3 weeks, when on the hardest skill level you have beaten all previous records at county and international level?? Precisely! I admit its a good ...
  • Pros: Great game, good idea, very easy navigation and excellent layout
  • Cons: Too easy

Too Easy!

  • Excerpt: "...as I am a big cricket fan. When I install the game things looked fine. I was impressed with the huge database of players and the motion captured animation. Also impressive was the commentary - so many times in a computer game you get commentary that doesn't flow properly but here David Gower and Richie Benaud have done a fine job. I also found the controls easy to master which I like in a game. It's so frustrating when you need to use the whole keyboard, ...
  • Pros: Great graphics, animation, sound .  Huge database of players
  • Cons: Poor gameplay .  Australia were 18 all out !  !

Cricket for the Pros

  • Excerpt: "You would maybe expect a Cricket game on the PC to be quite boring -but this product defies all my expectations! I bought it after I played the demo and thought it looked pretty good. You can change the settings so that matches are almost real-time, to an arcade style setting where the game has a little more pace - which is ideal for people like myself who aren't real cricket fans. I've played cricket simulations from other manufactuers and some ...
  • Pros: much more realistic than previous cricket games
  • Cons: havent found any yet
