Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 [import] review

Leather on willow on PC

Pros

  • Accurate player likenesses
  • commentary
  • Effective and pretty graphics
  • Real-world tournaments

Cons

  • Balanced AI is actually pretty shoddy
  • ...because of the lousy controls
  • Not a spot-on sim

The gaming world’s second most popular Lara returns to the crease, and BLIC07 certainly makes a good opening impression by flaunting its real-world tournaments (the ICC Champion’s Trophy and World Cup), accurate player likenesses and commentary from the likes of Gower and Greig.

It’s also one of the prettier cricket titles out there, at least when it comes to animations - when Freddie Flintoff rubs his arm after receiving a “wayward” Brett Lee thunderbolt, you find yourself wincing along with the guy.
