Allan Border Cricket

Genre: Sports    |     Year: 1994    |     Publisher: Audiogenic Software Ltd    |     Developer: Audiogenic Software Ltd
Game Review 1 (written by Jme_m862) Added on: 11/03/2006
Allan Border Cricket has been developed by Hasbro Interactive in conjunction with Chris Sawyer. The game has a feel of the original Sim-City version, with similar 360 degree view options and interaction between player and game throughout each level. The game developers the idea further and makes it easier to spectate on the game of cricket you engage your players into. An interaction is also added between players and audience members. Sometimes the audience will yell things out and the player will respond.
There is even room for you to type your own comments in response to customize the game even more.
Not being a very big cricket fan myself, I found this game very easy to follow. The controls and ideas of winning are explained well through an easy to understand tutorial that you first view. Then you can choose what country you want to play against out of Australia, England, The West Indies, America, South Africa, Japan, Croatia or Swaziland. Then you can choose your team. Better known players such as Donald Bradman, Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne and the like can be unlocked as you progress through the levels, and these such players make it much easier to be successful against your opponents.

game plays very well. The graphics are excellent, the sound is of great standard and also includes some cool songs, and game-play is easy to follow even for non-cricket fans. The controls can sometimes be a little confusing at first, but once you read through the tutorial you will eventually get the hang of it.
This game also has a multiplayer mode which is easy to follow and good fun. Up to four people can play as batters, bowlers or fielders. It's well developed and easy to play in this mode. You can also use the internet to play against online opponents and even type text to your opposition much like a chat room. This makes it more interesting because instead of playing against the computer you seem to have to think much harder about your next move and your game tactics.
Overall the whole game is pretty good. I would have liked to see move players and maybe a few of the better known countries. The game keeps changeling you and has some pretty cool scenery.
 
 
Game Review 2 (written by Amol) Added on: 10/17/2006
Cricket is one of the most popular games in India. Allan Border cricket is also extremely good. It is as per the cricket rules. You can configure the various options to simulate various scenarios. It has very user friendly interface and you can have total control over the game. While batting you can choose a specific shot depending on speed and length of delivery. You are always aware of length and speed of ball. At the same time you can view the field positions. You can move yourself in left or right direction which keeps you in the best positions to play the delivery. It gives you every opportunity to score best from each delivery. Even if you are not playing big shots, you can run hard to score the runs. In case of close calls of run out you will get an enlarged view to justify the decision. This simulates real time third umpire decisions.
Variety of shots which can be played, virtually in any directions, makes you a stronger opponent against the best attacks. Analysis of individual batsman is also displayed which is quite an entertaining. During bowling you can try all sorts of variation in your bowling. You can change the speed of the ball; you can choose a spinner who will spin the ball for you. A medium pace bowler will swing in any condition. With all this aids you can defend any total.
To support good bowling you can set up the field as per your choice. You can move an individual player from one location to other locations. You can strengthen the slip corner and align their positions as per the wicket keepers position. You can place your fielders on boundary line to prevent the big shots and if required you can place the fielders very close to batsman. It is very attacking fielding.
Ultimately it is “catches win the matches”. You can have default fielding set up for a particular bowler. This will save your time in placing the fielders. You can edit and create your own teams. You can decide the strengths of each person and preferred fielding positions. You can include yourself or your friends in the team which makes the game more interesting. Simultaneously, you and your friend can play the game. So you are playing against each other. So Allen Border cricket is one of the best cricket games in world. I hope everybody will enjoy it....
