Developed by EA Canada, Cricket 07 has been announced for PlayStation 2 and PC, with no sign of any next-gen versions. The game will feature fully licensed squads, a newly developed control system, plus plenty of game modes to compete in. Something EA is keen to talk about is the new Century Stick control system, so I'll let Justin Forrest, producer at EA Canada, explain.

"Our new, innovative 'Century Stick' control system will change the way all fans approach gameplay as you'll now have full control over foot choice, shot selection, shot power, and shot direction - it's never felt this close to actually wielding a bat before," proclaims Forrest. "You won't experience cricket this authentic without putting on your whites and walking down the pavilion steps yourself."

The game will also feature game modes for all types of cricket, including Limited Overs, Test Matches, fully licensed Twenty20, plus the complete schedules for the Australian State and English Country tournaments. There's also the ability to play in he highly anticipated Ashes campaign.

Adding to the overall experience are licensed bats from renowned bat manufacturers Gray-Nicolls, Puma, Slazenger, Kookaburra and Gunn & Moore. You'll also get ball by ball commentary and reflection offered by Mark Nicholas and Richie Benaud.

With Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 scheduled to arrive in March 2007, EA SPORTS Cricket 07 looks to have the videogame cricket market all to itself this winter.

Everyone says that graphics is not good.But how better can it be?can those players be humans?.I have played ea cricket 04 in that nothing they have done.In that players look like animals.This is the best version of cricket.Some special moments like dissapointments,huggings of the players have been excellent.Commentary is fabolous

everyones comments are about the graphics. ye ye're right they are the same but wat bout the gameplay the new century stick control sounds interesting. BL cricket might have great gameplay but there kits and stadiums are poor. you will only get the real kits and stadia in icc trophy and wc 07 modes very childish graphics for me.
