Hey Cricket fans. As far as sports games go, you’ve been a rather neglected bunch, with the heavyweights preferring to make more US-centric sports games like Madden and MLB. Oh, and games about 23 idiots running around on a field after a ball. Of course you’re not nearly as neglected as rugby fans, who haven’t seen a proper game in what seems like decades.
you’re lucky in that you’re about to get another one, courtesy of Codemasters and Trickstar Games a studio comprised of fellows behind the pretty good, but ultimately disappointing Ashes Cricket.
The new game will feature a camera known as â€œAction Camâ€, which promises â€œnew on-field perspectivesâ€, as well as the addition of something called â€œPower Stickâ€, giving the batsman â€œ360Â° analogue power and direction controlâ€. Howzat?
â€œCodemasters enjoys an unrivaled heritage in producing cricket games, and International Cricket 2010 will build on this success with a range of innovative gameplay features and enhancements,â€ said producer, John Szoke.
â€œWith a focus on taking gamers into the action like never before, International Cricket 2010 will deliver the most authentic cricket gaming yet.â€
Unfortunately they still haven’t sorted out official team-licencing this time around, so expect the South African team to once again get saddled with some pretty ridiculous names and frankly, that’s just not cricketâ€¦
international Cricket 2010 will be arriving for PS3 and Xbox 360 around the end of Winter this year.
