Game play is good i means its really awesome.but some minor issues makes this game suck like batting with out ball pitch marker batting become more realistic but this game has lots of shots i mean a lot its hard to manage controls in a nick of time.batting kind of becomes a guess work if really want to play all the shots.good thing about this game is Bowling this is the best you can get but again you bowl like 20 overs in atest cricket and you dont get a wicket its really frustrating.overall its pretty good game

Literally the best cricket game ever created in recent memory.

Demo warning; the difficulty is set to legendary so as a new player it’s almost impossible to hit anything batting.

The best cricket game out there. I know that sounds like it's not hard seeing as there are so few out there but it really is well done. Easy controls to get to grips with, there is perfect balance between it not being too hard too easy to peform bowling, batting or fielding. So many other games made catches or bowling nearly impossible due to there being such a fine line between perfection or oblivion. Also this game does not give you wickets left, right and centre. You might Five-fors, you might get hat-tricks. But they will be as often as the professionals get, you will get that stubborn batsman whom you try everything to get out and then boom a simple shot sends the bails flying and your arm raising in triumph.

One thing I hope for in the future is perhaps the addition of more stadiums, better commentary (it does get a little repetitive) and better designed character models (Jimmy Anderson looks like a caveman).

The best cricket game you can buy. Full featured, career mode is excellent, and batting / bowling very satisfying.

The demo doesn't give you a full understanding of the product, so just go ahead a buy it, you won't be dissappointed!

since brian lara cricket 1995 sega and playstaion version , I have been played almost all cricket games so far (including all ea ones ) yes ea 1999 (most pathetic one) too :) but never seen such quality cricket game as dbc 2014 is all about

DBC 2014 is something special yes, beautifully designed , excellent gameplay . even after playing for more than 100 hrs still i am unable to play pro difficulty . online gameplay ofcourse much better than other shi**** games as well.

top 3 cricket games i would say so far as follows

1. DBC 2k14
2. BLC 2k7
3. Ashes 2k9


for all cricket lovers , its my request please buy original copy . come on , within 499 INR you cant get better than this.

eagerly waiting for dbc 2k17

The playstyle of this game is nice. Overall easily the best cricket game that I've come across. It's fun batting and bowling, which has seemingly been a tough task in most cricket games (lol).

Although I don't quite understand any overarching batting strategy existing in the game, i.e. unsure if you can demoralize the bowler... (there could be mechancs like that, could not tell), it's fun dealing with each delivery for its merits since the controls are well designed.

The bowling is more difficult to master, but I felt effectiveness in employing an overall strategy rather than just trying for a wicket every ball. That feels like quite a feat for a cricket game since in other games there's usually a sweet spot or a common strategy to rinse-repeat. Didn't feel like that in this game. That said, I'm not quite convinced by the spin bowling in this game. Hurts my thumbs.

I feel the statistics element of the game could be improved. Cause effect between games played and statistics (outside of career mode) should be clearer. And the career mode could have tournaments in it - would make sense to me. Also why can't a batting alrounder open the batting? :)

Overall I have fun playing this game. Can play, watch some TV, chill out. Was rather addictive to get my first character into all the international teams, and as captain.

This is the best cricket game ever developed.
When i first played it, the experience just swept me off my feet. I was thinking if its really possible to develop a game with so much realism.

Batting seems as if we're really doing it. In order to score runs, you've got to apply yourself.
Also one could play all the possible shots in the cricketing notebook.

Edges are very realistic which was never done before in any game.

Fast bowling is a real charm with all the subtle variations possible. Although spin bowling bores me personally, its also good with all real variations.

Overall, Its an excellent game which must not be missed.
