If you have played any of the Cricket Captain games that came before this one then you have no need to buy this. Appart form updated player rosters and one or two more differnt options when it comes to what type of game you want to play, this game is exactlly like all the CC i have ever see. No new animations, no new commentry, the commentator is still an idiot and the the creators still do not understand the LBW rule.

Over all not a bad game, but if you want something new you will be disapointed.

Cricket captain's a good game, I'd probably say 7/10. Everything about it is good its just that there's no stand out features and also I find the system a bit hard to move around. It would be worth buying if there was a special on.

I bought this game back when it first came out in the late 90's.
Over 14 years they have left it largely untouched other than the player roster. Oh and they somehow found a way to add more bugs. It would be a good game if they bothered to update it. If you are looking for a cricket Football Manager you will left wanting. It looks and feels cheap and unloved.
It was worth 20 dollars 14 years ago. Its worth $5 today.
AVOID!!!!!!! Unless you are some type of cricket manager tragic and even then wait for a sale.
