International Cricket (NES review)

Developer: Beam Software
Publisher: Laser Beam Entertainment
Released: 1992

International Cricket is a sports game that was only released in Australia.

+ Stats for both batters and bowlers are always at your fingertips, which greatly helps with gaining a strategic advantage.

+ Likewise, your fielders can be positioned using a simple overhead view, allowing you to cater towards individual batters.

+ Batting is intuitive and it's fun testing yourself against different bowler types while gambling on ground vs. air strokes.

+ Everything moves at a brisk pace, and there's plenty of modes and options to cater to your preferred play style.

+ Includes detailed sprite work and humorous animations to signify important plays, and there's even some voice clips.

- Bowling works perfectly fine by pre-selecting from a list, but you have no real control over ball location or accuracy.

- Colour palette is garish (which, at times, muddies the excellent sprite work) and the music (while catchy) does get repetitive.
