30 May 2010
Excerpt: Whenever a cricketing occasion comes along it seems that Brian Lara Cricket is never far away. The 2005 game was the first Brian Lara title in around a decade, and was released during the Ashes series of that year (and topped the charts as a result), whilst this 2007 edition has earned its top five...
Excerpt: In the summer of 2005 Brian Lara made a triumphant return to video games, with Codemasters' game being addictive and highly enjoyable. It wasn't perfect, but it was the best option cricket fans had.

Pros: Easy to pick up and play, Robust online offering including 16-team tournaments
Cons: Not enough game modes, Official licence for ICC tournaments only, Fielding is too hard, Not great looking for a 360 title
Summary: The legend returns - the best-selling cricket game is back! With vastly improved graphics, enhanced gameplay and the official ICC World Cup 2007 license Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 captures all the tension, skill and intensity of world-class international cricket.
