Beam Entertainment's Cricket 97 is yet another cricket title trying to convey the true feeling of cricket in a video game. The graphics here are mere 2-D Sprites, but players have a range of animation with distinguishable details. Commentary is provided by no one other than Richie Beanaud. All the standard crowd/sound effects seem to be included.
Batting in Cricket 97 is performed by the directional keys and two other buttons to create combinations on the direction of your shot. Bowling on the other hand is simple, pick the type of bowl you would like to bowl and then the position where the ball will bounce. Cricket 97 also offers two player multi-player capabilities and plenty of options and teams to play around with. ~ Brad Penniment, All Game Guide
