    Langeveldt's Cricket 2005 review

    I got the full version at 8.30 am as soon as the stores opened here on Friday.. I've hardly stopped playing since..

    Graphically beautiful, easy to use if you know C2004, but with more intelligent AI, more choice of players/deliveries, far less bugs (only commentary and the odd fielding bug)

    Absolutely awesome and has exceeded my admittedly low expectations.. You've taken your time EA!

    And I have to say that it completely owns BLIC from what I saw of the demo, which looked cartooney and didnt play particularly nicely either.. Although i'll probably get it because its still better than C2004..

    More comprehensive review when I'm not so tired

    Will both games have stats counting? And do either have a one player career mode?

    i've played the BLIC demo, i know it's not the full game, but i thought cricket 2005 was better. on BLIC, the batting (not to spinners) is easy.

    the players look more realistic on C2005 as do the kits.

    also you have to play shots much much later on BLIC, has anyone noticed that

    Maybe thats what you would like to believe.. I get the feeling quite a few people are being surprised on Planetcricket..Or will be when BLIC comes out.. Harmison bowling at 47mph halfway down the track seems like a bigger bug than EA could ever come up with.. I'd be very worried if I'd pre-ordered it.. I'll probably get the final version eventually...

    I'm running with medium detail on 1260x1028 with AA at 2X... It looks amazing!

    I have an ATI Radeon 9600PRO card and AMD Athlon 1.7Ghz processor..

    C2004 had that but it didn't work.
    Or something.

    No maybe you could have the teams changing half way through the match, or 7 run outs in a computer innings.

    I don't mind which game ends up being better. TBH I actually think they are both going to be terrible. EA's seems very poor to play just off the demo and BLIC is too arcadey.
