  • Excerpt: "...the latest installment of the Brian Lara Cricket series was very good. The overall layout looks much better. But that changed when I was playing on it for a few minutes. I'll start with the music. It was terrible really. Just one song played over and over and it was a rubbish one at that. But I did try my best to ignore that and carry on with playing the game. I was really quite annoyed that there wasn't the same create a player mode as in the 2005 ...
  • Pros: Quick loading times, autoplay feature, easily navigateable .
  • Cons: Too easy batting, terrible music, custom player mode poor, too similar to last game, awful graphic

  • Excerpt: "I often start off my reviews trying to explain what led me to a specific purchasing decision, but the thing with "Brian Lara International Cricket 2007" is that there wasn't one. Or at least, not one that I consciously made. I mean, this is never a game that I would have chosen to buy if it had been left up to me; the only reason I tried it was because it was in a bundle of games we got with our second hand Xbox 360 when we it bought from a friend. ...
  • Pros: Fun gameplay, Batting and bowling controls easy to pick up, Most player likenesses are decent
  • Cons: Fielding controls could be better, Probably not detailed enough for hard core cricket fans

  • Excerpt: "Brian lara cricket is best cricket game i have played to date. Although the graphics may look average the gameplay is what counts. The gameplay is very good. Timing is everything for this game, bad timing will either result is a wicket or no run and good timing will lead to boundaries. The game is only entertaining wen playing with someone else over xbox live or local. Playing against the computer seems boring because theres noone to insult whilst ...
  • Pros: Very enjoyable multiplayer
  • Cons: Lack of any true single player features, Graphics seem average

  • Conclusion: It has its moments in the ODI`s but generally the game needs a bit of TLC from a few cricket lovers. The difficulty is really out, catching edges is very hard, the fielding is poorly done, The AI is awful on test matches, the batsmen keep trying to hit boundaries and on the 3rd of 4 difficulties never play any defensive strokes. The animations of players arent too bad but they look all the same and its hard to pick out character likeness.

Average...at best

  • Conclusion: Graphics aren't the best but the gameplay sort of makes up for it. Still a very easy game even when on Test Mode, chasing down scores of 450 plus in an ODI are easily achieveable. Has some gremlins in game like if you bat first you can go from 12.2 overs then the next ball is 13.3 and so on. Hopefully a EA Cricket game will be out sometime this year. Only thing good about this is playing your mates as the AI is very easy and not challenging at all.

  • Conclusion: Good gameplay and controls, however the lack of licensing can be annoying. Also i found the game cant be played for a long time, as it doesn't add much new to the old brian lara games.

  • Conclusion: the graphics arent fantastic but that is made up by the game play the different shots and bowls that you have to deal with the gameplay is fun but can get very annoying on harder levels when bowling for long amounts of time but that is also down to your skill level.

  • Conclusion: I loved the first Brian Lara game and therefore, I couldn't wait until I got this one. So, on that friday afternoon, I'm holding the game which I've wanted for so long. I turn it on, complete a bit of the training and I think (at first) that it's the best game in the universe.
