Summary: My 13 year old son LOVES this game. He loves to play and watch (real!) cricket. I read lots of reviews about this and Cricket 2005 and he couldn't care less about the names not being quite right! Buy it- I'm glad I did!
Summary: The wait is finally over for the resurfacing of the best cricket game ever. It was nearly 10 years ago since the original of this game appeared, and this has been hotly anticipated, not least by me! Here is my summary of this new game: GOOD POINTS: ============ + Most realistic cricket game EVER + Easy to pick up and play straight away + All the real names & kits appear in ICC competitions + Highly addictive once you get into it + Commentary from David Gower, Tony Greig,...
Summary: "If you ever want the most authentic, realistic criket experience ever buy this game. It is jam packed with authenticity from you having to get the precise spin on the ball to the you having to catch the ball, the graphics on this game are out of this world, but there not they make the stadiums like so realistic the billboard's are even matching!!
Summary: I was looking forward to getting this since having owned the ps1 version and old megadrive version, and loved those. "In the air....and 6!" Loved the sound of that when I had slogged one out the stadium. Anyways, I bought this, and at first found it a bit tricky especially with the bowling, it seemed no matter what i couldnt get a single wicket, but then again i was playing the aussies in a ashes test, and its perhaps not a wise choice to play them first, but thats who i...
Summary: I reviewed Brian Lara cricket for the PSOne on Amazon and, back then, found a great deal I liked in it. I've also played and reviewed EA Sports Cricket 2005 on Amazon and found virtually nothing I liked in it. The 2005 incarnation of Brian Lara, on the Xbox, is pretty much as good as you can expect any cricket game to be on a console. It works like every cricket simulation that's gone before...but it just does it right.
Summary: This game is far better than cricket 2005, for several reasons: 1) The graphics are much clearer, and look more simpler, but offer a better gaming experience. 2) The controls - rather than using the same button for a shot & then to run, there are individual buttons - leading to less unintentional run-outs. 3) Gameplay - the gameplay is far better; better bowling options, and a much fairer contest between bat & ball.
Summary: Firstly i have to say well done to Codemasters on deciding to release another Brian Lara game. Where can i start, Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 is a great all round game, the gameplay is great, the graphics are awesome and the commentary is first class. Just like the battle between Fifa and Pro Evo in the Football genre it appears that codemasters have started a war with EA over their 'Cricket' series its EA's officiality (e.g. kits, player names) Vs.
