  • Full 3D Environment: The action takes place in a fully 3D environment enabling a true tv-style presentation to be used. Using up to 16 fixed camera angles and many more 'director' selected ones you can tailor the view to find the ideal personal angle to play from or to watch the action replays. Includes the dynamic 'helmet cam' for first person play.
  • Motion Captured Players: Motion capture technology is used to recreate the perfect movement of the human body and particularly the unique techniques found in cricket. Flowing cover drives, flashing square cuts and deft late cuts are just a few of the batting strokes superbly recreated using this technology. All shots seen in a cricket match have been included. The distinctive differences between the various bowlers also become glaringly apparent when motion capture is used.
  • Control System: There is an intuitive control system in place which is a development of the original system from our immensely successful megadrive games. Batting enables you to select from a variety of shots in an aggressive or standard manner. Your shot selection and timing are important and become crucial on the hardest level. There are defensive shot shortcuts and a 'leave ball', pad up and duck option if you are on the defensive.

  • Intelligent Computer Opponent: The computer's batting and bowling AI are highly detailed. In a one day match the batsmen will respond to the current situation realistically, attacking when they should and defending when they should. The computer bowlers will attempt to bowl a good line and length to you and their ability to do so will vary according to the ability of the bowler. They will also slip in the odd bit of variety with bouncers, slower balls, googlies, flippers and arm balls amongst the various bowlers weapons. The computer captains will respond to the match situation with their field and bowling changes. In Test matches the captains will apply the pressure when they deem it necessary and defend when the need arises.
  • Varying Pitch and Weather Conditions: As you tour around the world of cricket you will come across a variety of conditions under which matches will be played. Try to master the techniques needed to successfully compete on the parched pitches of the sub-continent or the green wickets of England. Face the swinging ball when there is cloud cover or revel in the perfect batting conditions of a fine sunny day and a flat wicket.
  • The weather could change as the day progresses and effect the display, gameplay and tactics accordingly. Also, the pitch will wear as the days pass in a Test Match as will the ball condition during an innings.
