Cricket Best Ten Video clip Rating: four / five
my first ever cricket game on PS1.
If u ask me tht was the best cricket game i ever played in tht yrs. Not
much graphics evolution in tht period but was best of the rest.
I love your pessimistic attitude at the beginning…
Actually, I play 3rd grade cricket, on the weekend after I dived and saved
a four, my teammate Armo threw the ball from 2 steps inside the boundary,
hit the stumps directly, and got the batsman out. A real life glitch if
ever I saw one. No joke guys, I don’t think I’ll ever forget it
The game is actually good, better even than numerous shoddy ‘attempts’ at
cricket for subsequent consoles. It plays well and the graphics are
excellent for the time – there were very few PS1 games that were completely
bug free back then. You got used to the glitches and played around them.
Dunno, guess I had more patience as a 15-year old. 😉 Cricket in a
nutshell: Fat blokes chuck a ball at other fat blokes with sticks.
Yeah, he always runs to the stumps when it would be better to pick up and
throw. On the rare occasion he does it catches you out and that’s it, run
out. Luckily, if you wait a second longer you can twig it. One of my
favourite cricket games. I have two copies. 🙂
haha I hated this game it was shit. still playing BL 96 actually
@lakepalmer The wickie was having a spot of tea with the leg umpire and
neglected to take up his position. Nobody noticed. Just like on the village
“IN THE AIR……..and SIX and safe and that’s out, caught by McGrath.” I
knew that was a glitch because McGrath couldn’t catch a cold.
@Hindleyak i knew how to overcome the hangs but tricks were not working in
my android, so i changed my emulator from FPse to psx4droid and it worked!!
now i can play this game on my Android phone (mytouch 4g) and the trick was
start worldcup and after choosing team, u will hear music animation of WCup
and after that Quit worldcup and then u can play any friendly match without
hangs after toss.. thanks for reply though 😛 thanks
@mrugankpatankar I’ve had the overthrows thing happen to me on numerous
occasions, but I didn’t know the game treated it as a boundary. 🙂 Usually
a bloke goes across to pick it up and throw it back while the controls
remain unresponsive. Oh, and you just reminded me of the many times when
run-out decisions went to 3rd umpire and showed the batsman got home yet
the game gave it out. I need to get playing again, probably worth it just
to find more bugs!
its so reality based game.. the modern games should be based on this
version of cricket not stupid EA 07 like etc.. but the Wicket Keeper is
inspired from kamran akmal i think lol
Love the video and the game’s weird happenings.
I remember hitting the ball so hard after it had been given as a six it
rolled back past the umpire. I also remember when georgia browns was called
@lakepalmer Robot wicket keepers are the future. Screw humans and their
desire for money! Robots don’t need paying or feeding and you can switch
them off at night. Probably have to cart them into the pavilion so they
don’t rust in the rain though. Agh, I’ve been watching far too many sci-fi
action films of late. I need to put on some Superted to redress the balance.
@mrugankpatankar There was a glitch to get an easy wicket right after
saving the game which I omitted from this video but I can’t remember many
more advantageous bugs. If you know of any, one must inform me of them
i hardly had any glitch…shopkeeper tricked u 😛
@rang6300 There’s a Planetcricket forum thread with a possible solution. I
would link you to it, but YouTube is a piece of poop and won’t let me. Do a
Google search for ‘hangs after toss’ and the thread will be the first
result 🙂 I think it might be something to do with sound drivers, from what
I can gather.
I think all of these glitches occured to me when I played this game, Oh the
nostalgia by watching this video 😀
@Hindleyak Yeah there was one where they try to run you out and the fielder
has a shot at the stumps, but the batsman makes it, and no one bothers
stopping the ball – you get four overthrows. But you dont get runs for the
single or two runs or whatever you ran. If you ran three&that overthrow
thing took place the batsman who played the shot miraculously comes back on
strike! I remember i was like 6 or 7 when i played that game…It was one
of the best cricket games out until cricket 2000 came.
very nice work.
