  • Summary: This game is very easy to pick up through practising in the 'Nets. However, aspects of the game such as catching, run outs and general fielding are awful; it is difficult to catch as you have to try and wait when and press A as soon as a white line hovers over a yellow line.

  • Excerpt: Overview ********************************** As with it's football counterpart, Cricket games are divided into roughly 2 divisions. The EA sport variety and the non EA sport variety. As good as the EA sports brand name is, it has often failed to live up to being the dominant gamer in many sports.
  • Pros: Best cricket game available, gameplay wise .
  • Cons: Lack of Licensing, graphics could improve slightly

  • Excerpt: Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 leaves off from the previous installment, Brian Lara Cricket 99. The game features correct rosters for official tournaments (ie, for world cup 2003 and champions trophy, the squad lists are what they really were) but contain fake names and faces for exhibition...
  • Pros: Fast paced Arcade style action
  • Cons: Total lack of realism, can become monotonous

  • Excerpt: Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 was a purchased made following the England cricket team victory over the Australians in the Ashes last Summer and for once I actually bought a copy brand new for £34.99 from Tesco so much was my urgent need to continue my fixation with cricket.
  • Pros: ok graphics, easy to master controls
  • Cons: poor gameplay, shots are repetitive, commentary drives you mad

Could have been so much more

  • Summary: This game could have been great, but instead it falls well short of the mark. It is, without doubt, the best cricket game on the market, but then that is not much of an accolade. It could have, like the FIFA football series so many years ago, redefined the genre and set new benchmarks for everyone.
