A large-scale Monte Carlo simulation study of the Ising model for the simple cubic lattice was recently performed by us. In this paper, we complement that study with the bcc, fcc and diamond lattices. Both the canonical and microcanonical ensembles are employed. We give estimates of the critical temperature and also other quantities in the critical region. An analysis of the critical behaviour points to distinct high-and low-temperature exponents, especially for the specific heat, as was also obtained for the simple cubic lattice, although the agreement is good between the different lattices. The source of this discrepancy is briefly discussed.
