"While Cricket games themselves are few and far between these days, it seems we’ve got an edgy spin-off nonetheless. Street Cricket Champions pushes the gentlemanly sport into the alley ways, harbours and beaches of primary cricket locales around the world for an unhinged experience. But don’t expect fouls and a ‘no rules’ version of the sport – it’s basically glorified garden cricket, which is awesome anyway.
The gameplay is actually pretty fluid in Street Cricket Champions as both bowling and batting are handled rather well, despite being very simplistic. Batting allows players to execute lofted, ground or defensive shots while timing the strikes accordingly. On the other hand, bowling is all about placement as players can use a variety of different spin and pace techniques in order to try position their deliveries to beat the batsmen. And then there’s fielding, which requires players to time button commands in order to make catches, and react quickly by returning the ball to the keeper or bowler before the batsman completes a run. The gameplay is pretty derivative, but gamers and non-gamers will appreciate the easy-to-use controls and responsiveness."
