Review: International Cricket Captain III

Hello there. I’ll say it again: I do hope you’re all keeping safe and well at the moment. In search of something calm and gentle, I decided to turn to cricket, and so today’s review is of a mid-to-late 00s entry in Empire’s long-running cricket management series: International Cricket Captain III.

And the bowlers have declared duck-hunting season

Hi there everyone. Welcome to A Force for Good, where phrases like, “we’ll cover it one day” could mean a wait of several days, weeks, months or years for a planned review to materialise. Anyway, tonight’s game is Cricket 96.

I’m Ian Botham, and you’re not

A recent non-existent survey of this site’s 12 readers revealed general disquiet about the amount of coverage of old football games. Well, we heard you loud and clear, imaginary reader – obviously cricket is more your thing. When we were a bit more organised, it used to be possible to plan reviews around real life […]

But I feel good

…and a happy new year

Hello there. Finally, we have our first content of 2011. I’ll bet you were on the edge of your seat. Well, fret no more, we have a new review! And, in honour of the England cricket team finally managing to win in Australia and bring home the Ashes, we have another cricket game for you. […]

Morning everyone

Hi there. So, England are in Australia and both sides are gearing up for the Ashes. Excited yet? [sigh] You know, the Ashes…cricket? No? That doesn’t bode so well for our latest update then. We’ve got a review of Graham Gooch World Class Cricket for you. And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also put together […]

I don’t like cricket…I love it

As a cheapskate with an interest in older games and a massive pile of untried titles sitting in a cupboard under the stairs, I don’t tend to buy too many new releases these days. Sports games are an exception, however. More specifically, a new cricket game will more or less represent an essential purchase on […]
