As many have said it before – ‘Cricket is not a mere sport in India. It is but a religion with its own philosophy and a huge fan following’. The same passion is evident while we select to play games – whether it involves actual play or just some online action. If you are a big cricket fan, chances are that you may too like these online games that make up for more than just a quick time-kill.
Cricket T20 Fever 3D Vs Real Cricket 2016.
Well, the essence of both the games is cricket, so you can’t expect too much variation in gameplay. You have teams in both the games, and it consists all the other elements of cricket – batting, bowling and fielding. What differentiates the two is stuff like graphics, interface detailing and just how easy it to play even if you were a newbie to the game.
To begin with let’s look at what Cricket T20 Fever 3D brings to the table. As the name suggests the game has 3D rendering to create a live sports effect. It is also one of the easy to play even for someone not knowing the nuances of cricket. You can choose to play as a part of any one of eight international teams, including England, Australia, India and Sri Lanka. You can also opt for either of the three game formats including One Day International (ODI) cricket with 50 overs played by each team, T20 matches which are as exciting with pulsating moments as offered by the real T20 Cricket and finally Power Play which is all about showing the muscle in the game. The controls are excellently tuned for easy manoeuvring and execution. If you are out to bat, just tap the button to hit the ball. The catch, throw and bowling etc, everything is possible with just a swift click of the button. Cricket T20 Fever 3D not only allows you to track and real time game statistics for strategic planning but also lets you review actual action in Replay mode that helps to spot the exact error or even room for improvement. The game captures the angles and views in true TV-broadcast style. Which means you can also watch superb varied replays. Add to that the cheerleaders who dance each time you hit a boundary or six or pick up the wicket.
On the other hand, Real Cricket 2016 also promises the users most authentic cricket experience ever. Each year, the Real Cricket franchisee ups their game by launching a fresh version with minor tweaks and upgrades, a tradition they has continued with 2016 update. Here too, you have about 16 nations and as many as 8 master teams to choose from that have all the cricket legends on-board. Additionally it has more variety of games to choose from. Apart from T20 Cup and ODIs, there are Exhibition matches, Test Matches, Australia’s KFC T20 Bash, English 20:20 Bash, South Africa’s Ram Slam, Indian Premier League and West Indies Premier League that add a bit of zing to the play. The game is very popular amongst most avid cricket players. The game allowed for some 27+ shots that would give a real feel of playing the game as a true athlete. This year’s version adds new ones in the list including Dhoni’s signature Helicopter shot. The controls are tuned with a one-click batting, bowling and fielding which are pretty smooth
The Full HD Graphics in Cricket T20 Future 3D combined with fantastic sound effects brings the game to life. The graphic design is life-like and even the figures bear quite a resemblance to actual cricket world. You can witness the magnificent detailing of the knee pads, shading on gloves and light reflection on the bat and the moving shadow of the ball when it is hit.
Compared to it the graphics in Real Cricket 2016 are more akin to PC games. The long range camera angles give a detailed wide angle view of the cricket ground but it lacks to add the excitement when you fail to observe the close-up of a straight hit. Even a wondrous back sweep or helicopter shot seems marginal hits with sub-par animations. Considering that the series is in its third year, improving overall graphics would have been better than just adding accessories like new shots, players or angles.
The overall visuals in Cricket T20 Future 3D are a treat to a true cricket lover. What’s more you can lead your team at any one of 6 legendary eye-catching venues including Lords and Eden Gardens. Now who doesn’t dream of such a thing? All-in-all if you compare both the games, the Real Cricket 2016 is more like a wide-spread buffet with a mix-bag of everything without extending additional vivacity to the game, whereas Cricket T20 Future 3D can be described as a discreet selection of menu items to serve the cricket buds with perfect detailed presentation and a pleasing palate (in this case the essence of the game).
Well, no more dreaming, let’s start playing now!
