Step onto the pitch for an epic challenge

Cricket 2005 is the demo of EA's full-length cricket game for Windows PCs.

If you're a huge fan of EA's other sports offerings, like FIFA and NHL, Cricket 2005 is another solid athletic offering. It's even got a great international aspect to it that any cricket lover is sure to appreciate.

Cricket 2005 offers you the option to compile and play on international teams, as well as bonus squads. In addition, this version lets you play domestic teams against one another. Users can now compete in England, India, New Zealand and South Africa.

The gameplay in Cricket 2005 centers around a presentation that looks like you're watching a televised broadcast of the game. This comes complete with a full action replay mode, as well as a third umpire, overlays in a TV-style format and a field position editor that lets users choose between auto or manual fielding. The full version also boasts more than 35 different stadium layouts, based on real stadiums in Melbourne, Auckland, Cape Town and various English cities.

Unfortunately, since Cricket 2005 is about six years old, the graphics aren't the most impressive, especially compared to other EA titles. If you're in it for solid cricket and excellent gameplay, however, it likely won't disappoint.

Cricket 2005's graphics may be a bit out of date, but this demo is still a fun experience for diehard cricket fans.
