Cricket 2005

01 Jun 2005

With TV style presentation, over 35 stadiums from all over the world and commentary from the legendary Richie Benaud - Cricket 2005 looks to be the definitive interactive Cricket experience.

Featuring all new detail in players’ faces and bodies, over 1000 new motion captured animations and a brand new create-a-player facility - it allow gamers the flexibility to play as the stars of the game or to create their own. Not only does the game look spectacular, bowlers now have easy-to-access individual repertoires and batsman have far more control including the ability to dive into the crease to prevent an imminent run out. The game will revolve around a TV style presentation including a full action replay mode, third umpire, animated ducks, information overlays, field position editor and much more. Playing the game really feels like you’re watching an actual cricket match on TV. The field position editor will allow for auto or manual fielding. Over 35 dynamically lit stadiums will be modelled from all over the world, including Lords in England, Calcutta, Melbourne, Auckland, Cape Town, Barbados, Lahore and more!

“Cricket 2005 will be the benchmark for cricket games to come” said Andrew Wilson, senior producer, EA Canada. Like other sports titles, the game will be shipped to different regions of the world with their own local celebrity on the cover, so expect to see Steven Flemming gracing boxes over here.
