Beam know that the game of cricket converted to a video game would be plain stupid since it would essentially take at least five days of play to get a result, hardly what gamers want. Ian Botham's International Cricket 96 therefore plays more like a baseball title with fast scoring, quick wickets and unrealistc means.
The game features both major styles of cricket: one day internationals and tests. One day internationals are fun and with the ability to change the overs to ten a side and is perfect for this unrealistic cricket title. Test match cricket on the other hand is useless as the real thing takes up to five days with one team needed to be bowled out twice to take victory. However in this game these tests take less than a day taking away any purpose of this mode.
The game also features plenty of options and a two-player mode that is bound to be fun with friends. Ian Botham's International Cricket 96 is a interesting take on the sport but it lacks the realism for fans of the game and thrill factor for non fans.
One of the first realistic cricket games in the market, Cricket 96 wowed people with its options, commentary and video options.
You can play either test or one-day matches with a choice of 8 teams, and you can set your field, bowlers and batsmen. It has a good control system and decent graphics for its time.
