Should’ve noticed this earlier, but until Sunday you can get some pretty good deals on cricket games on Steam, the online game distribution service.
The main one is 50% off Cricket Revolution, bringing it down to US$12.49, which is pretty reasonable for the game, despite its many flaws it is probably worth that price to find out whether you like it or not – it certainly is a very different approach to cricket games, I found it hard, but not in a good way. You can find out more and read my full review in our Cricket Revolution page.
Codemasters games are also on special, I personally probably would rather plonk my money down on the pack of some of their reportedly very good racing games, but with this being a cricket site and all, Ashes Cricket 2009 is $6.97 and for those of you wanting the cheapest cricket game experience Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 is only $1.69 – about what it is worth too. A special note on AC09 that the beta patches do not work with the Steam downloadable version – but perhaps still worth the purchase if you don’t have the game.
Though be careful, visiting the steam site during the sales usually results in spending a lot of money.
