||Play Cricket with all the freedom you
experience in the real game !
Playing with a standard WiiMote handheld controller is a completely new experience for this great game and allows you to bat and bowl with ease. At last, you can block or attack the bowling in the most natural way of all, building the innings with some flowing shots. When the opposing team are batting, you can counter-attack with the skilful use of line and length bowling.
Whether you are driving straight down the ground or playing shots square of the wicket, the batting power meters will assess the power of the stroke and show you the results. As more bar segments are lit up, so the power increases and the ball will disappear crisply to the boundary.
Just as in the real game, timing is everything and the new timing meter is designed to help you get the best from all your shots. Play your shot too early or too late and you will see the problem on the digital bar display. Get the timing just right and the meter will peak in the middle Green area.
Use the left and right controls on the WiiMote to select the line of the next ball to be bowled.
When you are bowling, the meters change to show you the timing, line and the speed of the ball as it leaves your hand.
Timing is once again the key to successful bowling - release the ball early and you can bowl a yorker onto the batsmans' toes (can be painful!) while a ball that is bowled later will become a bouncer (painful again!)
Using the other buttons and controls you can play defensive shots, call up scorecards and displays or just pause the game when the drinks interval beckons at the end of a tiring session.
All in all, you're find the WiiMote opens up a wonderful new way of playing Cricket.
