5.0 out of 5 stars Much Better!!, 10 Dec. 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Cricket 07 (PS2) (Video Game)
I've owned Cricket 04, 05 and BLIC and I have to say that this is a much better cricket game then any of them.

I won't go into every detail. This was definitely designed with the batting in mind though as it is by far the most fun/satisfying part. The dual stick controls (left for front or back foot and right controling the shot) are excellent though do take some getting used too initially. The ability to view from behind the batsman is also an inspired addition. Again if you're used to the earlier mentioned games it takes some adjustment but is more rewarding.

The 5 skill settings for tours/tests/tournaments are much better. The first three are v easy and you'll be hitting a boundry a ball almost every time in test matches. Once you up it to level 4 though you need more judgement as you timing has to good else you rund the risk of nicking it behind to the keeper/slips. So the decision making is more important. Do I try for a scoring shot, should I just block it or leave it alone?

If like me you're no much interested in bowling the other team out you can autoplay their innings. Then you have to decide how to bat your innings according to the situation you've been set. Slog out those few overs left to get the runs needed win the match, or just hang on for the draw? It's upto you.

On the whole, a marked improvement. Enough quick arcade action at the lower levels for the casual fan of the sport or if you're a die hard fan like myself, up the level, go into test match and see if you can reverse Englands dismal performance so far in the ashes this year!!!
