nowhere near as good as RPIC 2005 and 2007 will pooh on it.
problem is, yes, the batting IS better.....but, the timing for shots is as
simple as timing the shot as the ball leaves the hand (a split second after for
spinners) – prefect timing every time.....trying to actually time the ball
when it comes down the pitch is totally irrelevant (hence people thinking it is
hard to block etc..you aren't doing what the game wants…i.e.e repetitively
timing exactly when the ball leaves the pace bowler's hand. Once this is
realised…it is strike rates of 300–400 all round. Yippeeeeee.....
Much better than cricket 05 – MUCH better. So if, and there is no
accounting for taste, you actually liked that game…you will love this.
I felt cricket 05 was a 1.5 out of 10.
I would give this a 5–6.
Oh…and since owning I haven't bothered to bowl once -yes, they sensibly
brought back the ability to simulate their innings as a whole or by
wicket.....that got them an extra point.
Yes, it has the ashes.
so what? How could it not?
wait for rpic 2007…just don't make it hard for me to get a copy you
