"not worth it"
2 stars"

From the last installment there was alot of work to be done. Now EA is the best developers when it comes to sport games so i was kinda looking forward to this, but yet again they missed a straight delivery and was dismissed for a duck. But don't fret, Ricky Ponting 07 is just as bad. Lets hope EA and Codemasters get things right next time round.

"got em!!!!!"
4 stars"

COOL GAME, GOOD SELECTION OF TEAMS AND PARKS TO PLAY WITH, AND COOL DAT IT HAS THE VERIATIONS IN LEVELS

frankly – EA should shut down their cricket franchise. Bowlers/batsmen and umpires look like rugby players. I have invested in them for past 3 versions but not anymore. EA cricket from now on is a big no-no for me.

Bring on Ricky Ponting 2007!!!

Batting is really easy , bowling on the the other hand is the same as 05

"Howzat!!"
3 stars"

Well, I like the new controller system, but its still hard to advance and play a shot. Not a bad game, but some of the commentary and motion capture is the same as earlier versions. Some nice ashes challenges thrown in. The biggest let down though is the statistics and commentary. Cricket is a game of stats. But according to Cric07 Andrew Symonds is a new zealander. (He still plays for Aussie, but showed up with NZ flag beside his name in my games) And many similar things that pop up in the stats that are just wrong. Then the commentary is whacked too. Bonds 2nd wicket (but Bond isnt bowling, that was the previous over) and ponting facing but hes at the bowlers end. Even the onscreen graphics say that too. Overall if you can look past these things its still ok until RP 07 comes along and bowls it for a duck.

"come on guys"
2 stars"

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 little s&*#s!

Description

Thanks to the groundbreaking EA SPORTS Century Stick control system, batting has become more intuitive, responsive and rewarding than ever. For the first time in a cricket game, players can enjoy full control over foot choice, shot, direction, power and timing, all governed through the use of both analog sticks. A back or front foot stroke is selected with the left stick, then shot timing and direction are judged with the right stick. Power is determined by how far the stick is moved – a slight tap can nudge the ball for a quick single or a firm push can send the ball fizzing away to the boundary. Allied to new cameras that deliver a more natural behind-the-stumps batting perspective and a wider view of the field, cricket has never been so easily accessible. With embellished gameplay, a wealth of tournaments, genuine equipment and authoritative new commentary from Mark Nicholas and Richie Benaud, you won't experience cricket this authentic without donning whites and walking down the pavilion steps yourself.

Features:

  • Groundbreaking Control: Use the intuitive dual analog Century Stick batting system to select foot choice, shot direction, power and timing. With button controls to loft shots and advance down the track, you're free to crack a full array of shots all around the wicket. Success with the bat also relies upon your batsman's individual skills, allied with his confidence level. A confident batsman maximises his potential to time his shots sweetly – maintaining high confidence can make or break his ability to build a big innings.
  • New Cameras: Innovative views from behind the batsman offer a realistic batting perspective, and a reworked Broadcast camera gives you a wider view of the play for more authentic coverage.
  • Quickplay Cricket: Play cricket your way by setting your own pace. Crank up the game speed, ease back the difficulty setting and revel in the razzmatazz of Limited Overs or fully-licensed Twenty20 extravaganzas by playing a fast-blast match of hard-hitting sixes – or slow the pace down, slide the difficulty up and steel yourself for a five day Test.
  • Greater Depth: A new picture-in-picture display with a shot timing gauge coupled with a running assistance indicator and radar help you make those snap decisions out there in the middle. On-the-fly Dynamic Field Positioning and Quickswitch bowling give you the ability to ratchet up the pressure on the batsmen by changing the field and the bowler's line of attack without a break in play.
  • Tournament Options: Lead this year's eagerly anticipated 3 mobile Ashes campaign Down Under, replay the legendary 2005 npower Test Series or unlock a stack of rewards by accomplishing Ashes challenges. Take part in the frenzy of the fully-loaded, fully-licensed English and Australian One Day blitz of extreme Twenty20 cricket, dive into a complete schedule of Australian State and English County tournaments, tour the world, win the World championship or compete for glory in Test matches and One Day Series games with all the top cricketing nations of the world.
  • Authentic Content: For the first time in an EA SPORTSTM Cricket title, renowned bat manufacturers Gray-Nicolls, Puma, Slazenger, Kookaburra and Gunn & Moore bring their weight of authenticity to the day's play. Relish the big game atmosphere with new broadcast visuals, wicket textures and astute new commentary from the masterly broadcast team of Mark Nicholas and Richie Benaud as you play out a nail-biter against the faithfully realised backdrop of a legendary international venue or a cherished domestic ground.
