Excerpt: EA Sports Cricket 07 is EA’s latest effort at knocking cricket games for six, and thanks to a new control system it’s perhaps the most accurate recreation of the sport to date. It’s not difficult to understand that EA love to make unique use of analog sticks, and Cricket 07 is no exception. The new Century Stick control system gives you a more realistic feel of being involved in a cricket match.
Conclusion: In the end, despite the additions of Twenty20 cricket, and the current Ashes tour, the game feels excruciatingly limited and monotonous – you’ll be dreading the times spent bowling, and the batting segments really aren’t any better. It’s a struggle to find anything redeeming in Cricket 07. It’s not serious enough to appeal to true fans of the game, but it’s far too tediously dry for casual fans looking to get in a few games while the test is at lunch.
Excerpt: Although EAs Cricket 07 didnt get a current generation console release, a few short minutes back in its groove reminded me what an excellent experience it provided. The graphics and animation are a bit rocky by modern standards but the amount of match options, its accessibility and superb use of the Ashes licensing still made this an entertaining cricketing experience...
Excerpt: Cricket became “popular” in the summer of 2005, with no small part being played by England’s success in the Ashes series against Australia, where it seemed that for a brief moment – every single person in England; man, woman and child, suddenly became the most die hard fan of the sport. ‘Freddie’ Flintoff started turning up completely hammered at most sporting events and cricket was well and truly part of the public’s consciousness once again. Fast forward a year later.
Excerpt: On the back of the most anticipated Ashes series of all time comes EA’s latest effort into cricket video games. Despite a generous score to their last effort, to say we were disappointed with Cricket 2005 , would be an understatement. Heck, it won our worst game of 2005 award and was thoroughly trounced by Codemasters update Ricky Ponting/Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 .
Conclusion: O maior desafio de Cricket 07 é a modalidade campanha, na qual o jogador pode encarar uma temporada completa dos torneios australiano e inglês. O game ainda oferece a possibilidade de criar seu próprio atleta e estabelecer táticas em campo através de um novo sistema.
