OKAY! <<New Cricket 2005 Release Date Posted by Barty on Wednesday, 20th April @ 8:29AM EA have advised us that the NZ release date for Cricket 2005 has come forward. Originally expected late in July, Cricket 2005 is now expected to be released on June 30th. The game will be released simultaneously on Xbox, PS2 and PC CD-ROM. Some of the improvements include allowing you to play with domestic teams in England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. An all-new Twenty20 tournament will also be included with season modes also on offer. The game will revolve around a TV style presentation including a full action replay mode, third umpire, animated ducks, TV style overlays, field position editor and much more. >> f*** you EA... No one brings forward a release date - f***ing no one!!! This means thye have realised that their game is a graphically updated piece of **** and they are trying to get two weeks worth of sales in before BLIC comes out and pulls the rug out from under them,.... Unbelievable - there release date was originally a fortnight AFTER BLIC......they have obviously realised that no gamer worth their salt was going to buy their take on the nuances of cricket after Codemasters had given the public forst option. I implore all of you to rent and not buy this game unless it demans you do....don't get sucked in by these f***s guys....you are better than yet. Good lcuk nest time AW -focus on the rugby and learn that as long as their is competition from geuine companies like Codemasters you will get shown up and humiliated like you have this time for trying to make money instead of please people....stop making a fool of yourself.
