In the world of FIFAs and NBA 2Ks, cricket fans have had slim pickings. With bigwigs like EA showing no interest, Australian developer Big Ant Studios is doing its best to keep the cricket-game flame burning. Despite budget constraints and licensing issues, the studio has managed to come out with yet another installment in its cricket series. As long as expectations are kept in check, Cricket 22 is among the most fun cricket sims out there.
No rest for the wicket
Visuals: Rough around the edges
Gameplay: Keeping traditions alive
Building a career
Verdict: Should you buy?
Cricket 22 is not perfect with graphics that are stuck in the early part of the millennium, licensing issues, and a myriad of glitches. But despite all that, for cricket fans, this is the best game out there with the sheer amount of modes to choose from and the fun gameplay.
Far from perfect, but Cricket 22 gets the basics right and is a lot of fun.
