You can check out our early impressions of the game at the launch event here. We will be posting a full review soon.
ICC Pro Cricket 2015 is a Unity game, which means it should have good portability across the multiple game platforms. The game is best played on touchscreens we found, simply due to the intuitiveness of the controls. On PC, it can be played with both a controller and a Keyboard/Mouse with the latter being slightly superior. The game has a World Cup mode, a Quick Play mode and a Career mode called world tour. Most of the matches in these modes are limited to 5-10 over affairs to remain entertaining. There is the option to play 50 over games in Quick Play mode for the hardcore fans. The control scheme of ICC Pro Cricket 2015 while one is bowling is based on choosing a length and then drawing the desired path of your delivery. The speed of the delivery depends on the speed of drawing this path. While you can get creative with the path, the game will only choose the final path based on three points. There are a bunch of preset field setting but you can’t set a custom field.
