At the moment, the Windows 8 World Cricket Championship Pro game available in the Windows Store as an app is the best one to use. We go through its main features and explain why it is the best cricket game to be played on your Windows 8 tablet.
We have just published the list with the best Windows 8 cricket apps and games to download and play on your Windows 8 device, and now we’ve decided to highlight what we think to be the best cricket game at the moment. Like I was saying in the roundup with the best cricket apps and games, you can play in three different cricket championships – World Cricket Championship, World Premier League and Fantasy Cricket League. You will be asked to choose one right when opening the game for the first time. For those who don’t know, here are the basic rules of cricket:
Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a field at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. Each team takes it in turn to bat, attempting to score runs, while the other team fields. Each turn is known as an innings. The bowler delivers the ball to the batsman who attempts to hit the ball with his bat far enough for him to run to the other end of the pitch and score a run. Each batsman continues batting until he is out. The batting team continues batting until ten batsmen are out, at which point the teams switch roles and the fielding team comes in to bat.
The best cricket game for your Windows 8 tablet
There are two modes of cricket play: ‘Tournament’ for what is referred to as “unlimited hours of fun” and ‘Quick Play’ for a quick cricket game. What’s really cool is that you can even challenge your friend to play a cricket game together in the asynchronous Multiplayer mode . Despite the fact that the game has only a little over 40 megabytes, it does come with satisfying graphics and animations.
World Cricket Championship Pro for Windows 8 also comes with the option of letting you create your very own team and with the ultra slow motion shots for massive sixes, it will feel like you’re on a real cricket stadium. To see some hot action from the game, you can see action replay on or off and even enjoy professional commentary.
When it was launched, the game wasn’t that entertaining but the developer has updated it gradually with more and more features. Available for $1.99 in the Windows Store, World Cricket Championship Pro can also be tried out for a few days, if you’re not sure if it’s worth the money or not.
