Warm welcome everyone,
As Ross had promised us that they would release a gameplay video on 15th August, they actually did, with a slight delay although. In this video, we get to see the first gameplay footage of the game featuring the BARS (Big Ant Review System) aka DRS! Remember, this is the NON-FINAL version, and the gameplay can be altered any time. This is not uploaded by any 3rd party company, but the official itself.
This video stars Angad and the batsman, A.Nagpal. Wonder who they are? We’ll try our best to modify the names for you anyway. Okay, now let’s get back to the video.
How awesome can a Cricket game be? It is clearly described in the video above! This video shows that the game Don Bradman Cricket 14 enables us to take review going against the umpire’s call (BARS) just like what we have in ICC Panel. Kindly note that the game will have commentary, it has not be added in this video since the game ins’t yet released.
Have you seen how realistic the game is looking? Isn’t it like a real on-going match where a bowler doubts about umpires’ decision and discusses with captain and nearby players regarding the decision? However, the bowling actions need to be more realistic. The bowlers’ arm is too straight, and it requires to be more bent. This game has HAWK-EYE feature and shows us where the ball is pitching, it’s impact and where it’s going into the wicket.
The actions, the discussions, batsman reaction, the shadows, the stadium, the constant updates they’re providing with their game, the developers’ cheerful attitude, the day-night realisticity (I don’t care if it’s a word or not) is just attracting people like magnets to buy this game. Looks like Ashes Cricket 2013 by Trickstar had to delay their release, maybe they are waiting for this game to be released and then they gotta play and learn something from Don Bradman Cricket 14 and then re-make theirs.
This game will be available on the stores of the most of the cricket playing nations, and is available for pre-order at many websites now!
Also I hope the Umpire’s of Don Bradman Cricket 14 aren’t corrupted like the real ones, because the decision given in the video by the umpire was really terrible! I mean, it was a plumb 😛 . I doubt who was batting, as the bat was no where near the ball.
