Summary: Some people don't comment well on this game, but if you are a real in depth cricket fan, you will appreciate the variety of locations for playing, the conditions that effect gameplay, ie wearing wicket, overhead cloud and swing etc etc....I got to world class reasonably quickly and had to use my imagination to maintain the level of interest. Too long to describe here.....fantastic game by EA Sports.
Summary: Century Stick very intuitive and easy to use making batting an enjoyable experience. Drowned in game modes in a good way so there is lots to do. Bowling is tedious and finicky and requires high levels of patience but there are loopholes to exploit. Licensing is good and you can change unlicensed names with a roster. Great for hardcore fans and novices alike. EA's best attempt at a cricket game and good for me to be playing it now since I bought it in 2007.
Summary: ea sports cricket 07 is a good game, once youve got to grips with the new controls. the new century stick batting control is a really good addition, which makes you feel more in control of the batsman. the bowling however is VERY boring and VERY repetative, although you can autoplay this and completley skip the AI's innings by going on to auto play in the game menu. The AI, particulary in first class and test matches, scores VERY slowly.
Summary: I have been somewhat surprised at some of the positive feedback that I've read. Yes, the gameplay is quite good, HOWEVER, there are still large bugs in the regular gameplay. Shots are still limited, and the batsman still plays shots that he shouldn't (for example a back-foot drive to a full-pitched ball, either resulting in an LBW or bowled).
Summary: Cricket 07 another one of those alright cricket games. I WANT TO SEE SOMETHING AMAZING. but for now i have to do with this.the gameplay is good but still to easy.On cricket 2002 it was difficult and it was a challenge to even get to 100. But on this i can get 500 easily on 5 star. You can just slog when the fielders are in and look for twos when they are out.i like the fact they have sponsors but i want to see more of them.The bowling is a good factor but for most people...
Excerpt: This is a top game. It's highly addictive too. The batting is easy, but that's part of what makes it such a good game. The tours are enjoyable and not too long winded, and all the gameplay features are excellent. Much more advanced than the earlier games, you have loads more options in this version, camera angles are better and the semi automatic fielding is great fun.
Excerpt: I was excited when I bought Cricket 07 because from all the screenshots and everything I had seen it appeared to have got alot better and more stylish. The graphics have got alot better which adds a great deal to the game because with the last one the graphics were dire at some points. Also its interesting how much of a difference having the score in the bottom left hand corner in that attractive looking box makes. So they have done well on the graphics front.
Pros: Century stick, camera angles, better graphics, ashes mode .
Cons: Music could be better and batting could be a bit harder .
