    Sorry made mistake it seems like Ricky is out in September. Also it seems the game has a licence from ICC. Does this mean EA won't have licences?

    Ricky Cricket
  4. I'm most looking forward to the return of Brian Lara Cricket personally.

    Brian Lara.

    The increase from Cricket 02 to 04 was not very big in terms of gameplay. They better make it a **** load better this time.

    i tell ya what this BLIC/Punters cricket is looking awesome

    i like how they say "'Ricky Ponting International Cricket will capture all the exciting,
    athletic, skilful and technical elements of the sport in the only cricket
    game designed to make batting, bowling and fielding equally enthralling to

    fielding needs to be a part of cricket games as much as sledging and batting and bowling

    BLIC will again set the new benchmark in cricket games.

    The difference again is that the makers of BLIC are actually listening to what the buyers want, answer our questions, and want to produce a top notch sports game.

    In comparison HB studios don't listen to what the buyers want, very rarely (if ever) answer questions, and want to produce a game that makes good sales in target areas (thus increasing their chance of renewing their EA sports contract) regardless whether the game is actually any good or not.

    looks or plays??

    coz i know what counts

    dont care how it looks - if it plays anything like the old BLIC/Warnies with updated visuals due to consoles - i'll be a pig in mud, bowling chin music for hours on end!!!!!!!!!!!

    i reckon it looks awesome - FOR A CRICKET GAME

    dont expect Tiburon visuals - oh pls!!!!
  13. It always amazes me how people can tell how a game is going to move just by looking at still screenshots.
  14. Brian Lara all the way, can't wait for it, always fantastic games!

    i just wished EA/HB would stop making our backyard sports

    even tho i enjoy them for what they are, they should be alot better, and would be better in other developers hands

    this speil on cricket 2005, reminds me of HB's work

    trying to dolly up the features when they are the same

    "Animated Ducks" - wahoooooo, glad they have put emphasis on that.

    imagine not having animated ducks, but fully dynamic manual fielding

    when they say manual fielding in this it will be just the same as the other EA cricket NOT VERY MANUAL

    I reckon it will be good, alot better than their previous efforts.

    The way i look at it is like this-

    rugby 2004------>rugby 2005 [massive improvement]
    cricket 2004------->cricket 2005 [should be a massive improvement]

    ** Just seen the screens for cricket2005
