Well if you are looking for graphics, sounds, cutscenes, commentary etc.. You'll be dissapointed.. the game isnt strong in any of these areas.
The game is only and entirely strong in one area.. which is the gameplay. If this game's gameplay wasnt good, This game was crap. Thats my honest opinion, But having said that, The gameplay of this game is probably the most realistic cricket gameplay that i have ever played.
I played 2 10 over matches right now.. Im not able to score boundaries easily, Im getting lots of edges and im able to score realistic scores.. In first match i scored 43 in 10 overs then in the next match i scored 40. I was playing offline.. It will take a bit of time to get used to, There are so many shots and the only way to bat properly is to learn all these shots and be patient. You wont be able to pick any delivery and smash it to the boundary. The scoring in this game is very realistic. Expect 3-4 runs per over at max when you start the game..
Its a difficult game.. But thats a good thing, If you look at EA games and Codemasters, They're all too easy.. They dont give you a challenge.. You can smash any ball for six or 4 in those games.. This game on the other hand is completely different.. There are so many factors you have to take into account when playing a shot.. Like is the batsmen just come on the crease? if yes then there are more chances of getting edges so you should play safe shots.. Shots selection is to be done very carefully, Shot placement and Fields must be taken into account, The bowler's confidence is another factor..
Anyway, Thats my little review.. Bowling is simple in this game, Batting on the other hand will need patience.. You need to spend like 2-3 days before you can finally get the hang of how to bat properly in this game.
Gameplay.. This is a massive massive positive.. infact if it wasnt for gameplay, This game would suck
No realistic player names
Not a great deal of offline modes (Focus is mostly on online gaming)
Batting is tough (this can be both a pro or a con because tougher batting means you have to play the game realistically.. If you try to hit the ball to the boundary on the first ball, Get ready to get out )
Thats pretty much it. Dont expect much from this game apart from gameplay.
