Well how do i put it ea sports have pulled out yet another top quality game.i have bought most of ea sports games just because i think there great.i bought this game as england was playing australia in the ashes. i had never really been interestd in cricket before so this game taught me quiet a lot.
anyway on with the game
when i first started playing the game i jumped in with both feet and decided to bat.well my team ended up been all out for 15 lol.i was really surprized how hard it was to bat. The key to batting is all about the timeing. but after a week or two i started getting the hang of it.the game has features which will help you learn how to bat and bowl in there practise moad.
where as bowling is a whole new ball game(see what i did there vclever).with bowling you have a variety of bowls and spins to catch your opponent of balance.and obviasly the better the bowler the more spins you can do.i thought
the graphics on the game was awsome with each player having there own stats and abilaties.
you can compeat in leages tornaments and world cups the setup of the game is exactly the same as any other ea sports game . so it's very easy to scroll though. i eventually snapped my game in two because it always seemed like the game was cheating. but never the less it was a good game
Cricket 2005 for XBOX looks, at first glance a good game. If you are a cricket fan and understand the game, you can pick it up and play it fairly quicky. Bowling is straight forward, with different types of deliveries for different bowler types.
Batting however is not so easy. The controls aren't too bad and are pretty much the same as for Cricket 2004 (Playstation 2). It's actually fairly easy to get the hang of hitting the ball and staying in. Scoring runs is a different matter however. It's almost impossible to score a run if you hit the ball anywhere near a fielder. It doesn't matter how well you time the shot, the fielders seem to be able to stop everything unless you hit the ball into a massive gap. This means batting is a matter of extreme patience, even on the easiest level.
One for the serious cricket, this one...
