Cricket Life 08 : Game to watch out
The cricket games that are available in the market such as EA Sports’s Cricket 07 and Codemaster’s Brian Lara fall way below the standards of other sports games . The quality of graphics as well as gameplay are not up to the standard which you see in games such as FIFA , Madden etc. Obviously with each installment of the cricket series from the EA , our expectations are raised but the games just dont deliver . Luckily , things are going to change .
Gamebience , a Canada based games development company is going to release a game called Cricket Life 08 with a host of exciting new features . The game will allow users not only to play a game but to live the life of a cricketer. The game combines the elements of management , strategy , sports as well as business strategy .You will have to achieve success as a cricketer both in personal as well as professional lives . The game is going to be released in 2 DVD , the first ever cricket game to do so ,and will feature more than 40 day and night stadiums and some huge gaming content.
As you live the life of a cricket player , there are various things which you will have to deal with . You will have to decide the sponsorship and media contract which you would like to sign , handle team contracts issues . You even have an option to appoint managers as well as personal trainers and coaches .You can even use your money which you earn to start and promote a business empire . You will have to deal with media , give interviews etc . You will even go through the down side of a player when you will have handle injuries , scandals , team rivalries , coach selection issues etc .
The game will also be a lot expandable through the use of extensions which can be developed by anybody . It will also have a fully dynamic interface and will also feature virtual player awards in diffrent categories. It will also feature a virtual governing body similar to ICC .
Gamebience has also announced that Australian cricketer “Mike Hussey” will be associated with the game and will also endorse it. Hussey said, “I am fascinated by the inspiring storyline of Cricket Life 08. The concept of living and experiencing a virtual life of a cricketer is appealing and I am confident that the gamers will enjoy playing this game.”
