Cricket isn't too complicated. However, the game noticeably lacks any explanation of the rules, so you'll be left in the dark on terms like “overs.” Graphics are another drawback, with players jaggedly rendered – even in hi-res mode – and it would have been nice to have more than just eight teams included with the game. Still, if you're interested in Cricket, this is a great introduction to the sport.
Game-Over! (Jul 13, 1997)
I reckon those people that will enjoy this are the ones that play a lot of the real thing anyway, and so aren't the most expectant of gamers. It's just too yawnsome for me though, and not for inspiring the most pleasant of dreams either. What it needs is a few strippers cavorting across the pitch or something.
