Summary

Cricket 97 is a detailed simulation of cricket.

The Good

Cricket 97 has a whole stack load of options. Everything you could possibly imagine can be changed. You can even opt for Ozy rules for scoring as opposed to English ones. Once you?ve chosen your options, you can go for a quick match, a one day match, a full test match or a network game. You can of course have a 2 player game with one machine.

Richie Benaud! Commentary is good.

The Bad

The graphics are OK but not as good as FIFA 97. I never seem to get any sixes, only 1 six in about 50 matches. Will only find favour with cricket fans. Others will find it insanely boring

The Bottom Line

If you like cricket you could play this until the end of the world.
