As well as all of the international teams and bonus squads, EA Sports' Cricket 2004 includes domestic teams and competitions from England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Test matches as well as One-day Internationals are also included, and in addition to the tournaments that you have come to know and love from EA Sports' Cricket, the Master League will also be a highlight of this game.
With new motion capture and a new development platform, not to mention the inclusion of form and injury, gameplay is more true to life than ever before. And for the cricketing buff there's no end to the detail. A large variety of statistical graphs will be available including run rate and wagon wheel graphs, as well as a huge amount of statistical data on every player that tracks over the course of a tournament. The game revolves around a full TV style presentation including a full action replay mode, third umpire, animated ducks, TV style overlays, field position editor and much more. The field position editor allows for auto or manual fielding.
Over 75 stadia are modeled from all over the world, including Lords in England, Calcutta, Melbourne, Auckland, Cape Town, Barbados and Lahore; the detail in the stadia is amazing. Lighting and shadows of the highest grade together with real time weather all add to the authenticity of the playing experience.
