Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: After almost a decade of absence, the Brian Lara Cricket series has made a triumphant return. The game was released at the start of the Ashes series, and is the first cricket game to ever top the all format charts as a result. Not a bad new beginning for the re-emergence of a popular series, which started way back in the 16-bit days and was last seen on the PlayStation nearly a decade ago. This writer has got to admit that he isn’t too big a fan of Cricket.
Excerpt: Every now and then a game is released that seems to pitch a tent and take up a home in your console's disc tray. For me this happens rarely, with Waverace on the Nintendo 64 (no disc tray, but it was only an analogy), the Pro Evolution Soccer series on PlayStation 2 and Virtua Snooker on the PC being a handful of games that make me want to keep going back for more.
Conclusion: I understand that some people don't 'get' cricket. Take my girlfriend for example: “Cricket is so boring”, “I don't understand what's going on”, “Why is he out?”, “What's an LBW?”, “Why are you wearing my underwear?”. These are just a sample of the utterances I've heard from my girlfriend while I was watching the most recent England test match.
Pros: It's the best cricket game ever., Original commentary., Captures the spirit of the game well.
Cons: Bowling and batting need fine tuning., Lack of licenses and player likenesses.
