Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
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 sales success due to the World Cup that is in full swing at the time of writing.

VideoGamer.com
29 August 2008
  • 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. Now we've moved into the next-gen era and the legendary series has arrived on the Xbox 360 (as well as PS2 and PC). Some spit and polish has certainly helped, but things are largely the same as they were - except England have become worse.

  • Conclusion: The downsides are that some of the character heads look a bit lumpy at times and like the face has been stuck on, but at least they've made the more famous players look at least a bit like there real life counterparts. It does get a bit same-y after a while, but it's cricket so that may just be the developers attempts to make it realistic! One or two of the achievements are a bit buggy too!

  • Conclusion: The score is an accurate reflection of the quality of the games production but not really of the game itself. Put simply, if you like cricket then buy it if you don't then it's simply not a good enough general game to entice you. There is hardly likely to much competition on the cricketing front in the near future but certainly this game can and should be improved upon.

Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 review (X360)

  • Excerpt: No matter the skill setting of the team you're playing, be it mighty Australia to pitiful America, there's about a 50% chance that they'll either be an LBW awarded or the ball will smash into the bails. Either way, look to bowl out entire teams for under 50 runs.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It really is difficult to imagine how a cricket game could improve on the formula found here. For those who enjoy the sport this is a must buy; for the uninitiated it's a great introduction that will bowl you over.

Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 Review

GameSpot
4 April 2007
  • Excerpt: Just as EA's Cricket 07 was released late last year to capitalise on the then-upcoming Ashes Series, Ricky Ponting International Cricket 2007 (or Brian Lara International Cricket 2007, if you live in the UK), from UK developer Codemasters, is being unleashed right in the middle of another major tournament: the ICC Cricket World Cup currently being held in the West Indies. The timing is apt, and not only because of the game's official World Cup licence.
  • 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: Anyone that has seen the recently recreated movie King Kong by Peter Jackson will instantly feel at home, as this game starts off as the ship is located just offshore to the mystery island. After a brief explanation of the story so far, explained by using clips from the film and a well spoken voice over, it’s time to take your first steps onto the island that you will soon be desperate to leave.
  • Pros: Fantastic audio experience throughout, It is a thrill to control Kong himself, A great example of a film to game title
  • Cons: Extremely short, Not a game for the feint hearted, Always wanting more Kong!
