    I did the exact same thing...

    Damn Codemasters Australia website still says March 23rd is the release date.

    I got it for PS2 yesterday, and it has good points and bad points to it.

    Good
    Much easier to pierce the field when batting with fielders close in a ring.
    You can take away the bowling reticule and pitch marker when you're batting, to make it more reaction based, and more fun imo.
    You can sweep/slog sweep and go down the track, which both work well.
    Much improved graphics of ground and pitches.
    Easier to move field placings now, you just need to use the shoulder buttons.
    World cup format works really well, much better than I thought it would be.
    Radar graphs shows you where the analog stick is pointing and where you are going to hit it.


    Bad
    As far as I can see, you can't change the names of the players in non-licsensed events, such as custom test matches and custom ODIs, this is the main bad thing, and I know it is going to drive me crazy.
    No classic players and challenges like in BLIC 2005, which were good fun and added an extra dimension to the game.
    A much smaller range of grounds. I'm not sure if you have to unlock them or not, I hope so.
    Can be too easy, I went straight to test mode, and had to take off all the helping things when batting (ie pitch marker and reticules, radar graphs and timing meters), I fear that when I play on it a bit more, then it will be boring because it will be too easy.

    I'm sure there are more, and I'll edit them in later.

    Last time around, they actually only had six stadiums but used the same six grounds as the 50 grounds you saw in game. This time around they have more stadium models, but less duplication from what I'm told.

    Ah thanks for clearing that up.

    I am desperate to know whether I can change the unlicsensed names like you could in BLIC 2005.

    No you can't do it ingame - only possible with the PC version.
    It might be possible to do the same as we did for C07 and make a PS2 patch but I'd need to see the files.

    That will annoy the expletive out of me!! Quite disappointing. I'd never even though of purchasing EA07 until reading that... Hmmm

    Yep, enough of a reason for me to wait till it's about 50 bucks tbh. That's very annoying.

    What's the problem with the user just editing like in the old ones? What is legal about it?

    The reviews on Amazon are pretty poor overall. I won't be buying this. Besides EAC20007 is a decent game, apart from the odd niggle.
