The New Pro Evo vs Fifa?, 27 Oct. 2005
As EA want to expand their dominance of sports games, a cricket series was enevitable. Their are some real pluses about this game, and with some competion from Brian Lara Cricket there needs to be.
This is basically the same argument as sports fans have as 2 which football game the think is better. And there are reasons to hate and love both games. Cricket 2005 has brilliant graphics, international and county licences and super real gameplay. So real that you could be bowling 4 hours against the computer with very little rewards.
Whereas, in Brain Lara the balance between batting and bowling is greatly reduced. You can get very realistic and fun gameplay. But you dont get licences and player likeness.
I prefer this game. It has good comentary, excellent player likeness and decent gameplay. But i dont want you 2 think that Brian Lara is a bad game, it isnt just not as good as Cricket 2005
