A neat feature of this game is that players can reenact 1929 1948, 1953,
and even the 2005 ashes year, match that with a full international
calendar or test matches and one-day internationals and this game is
as realistic as it comes, it even provides the World Cup for gamers with
the West Indies tour of 2007.
Apart from world series crickets, there is also he full English domestic
season, including country championships, national league challenges
and 20 country cups. With that said, thais game could be played forever
as each match is different, ensuring the longevity of this title.
Graphically, this title is unfortunately sometimes a little bland but
from a management title, there are dozens of various graphical features to immerse
the player into the world of cricket. As with the graphics, the sound
is similar but remember that this title is aimed a Pentium 200Mhz, 32MB
