Thank you for that. That was absolutely incredible, the commentary isn't great but I turn it off after a few weeks anyway. Can't bloody wait.

Looks rubbish. All hope on the world cup rugby 2011 game now. Looks slow, rucks take forever. Defenders dont react to anything. Pass's look fake and seen no kicking out of hand but would not be hopeful and the player videos everytime the ball goes dead were endless. Defensive lines non-existent and tackles looks ****. Looks like Sidhe spent all their time fighting for licenses and forgot about game play, again. For the finished version I hope they start from scratch.

Can someone please update Jonah Lomu Rugby (add knock ons) and release it, it has been too long

So Rugby Challenge has Top 14...

Love the commentary about the Red Card, it wasn't a serious one, then change of mind, completely agree with the Red Card... Classic!

06-07-11, 04:43 PM
The animation look good I'm assuming it was on easy some of the passes were a bit odd and I noticed a glich at one point where the frame rate went wonky easily fixed though I'd say.

Commentary was choppy and AI seemed retarded but is was on easy I would assume.

Getofmeland
06-07-11, 04:45 PM
I would hope the gameplay AI was set to easy otherwise, its going to be a walk in the park...

Not sold on it... especially as I will probably get both...

06-07-11, 04:47 PM
There were no setpieces or setplays and medad the winger keept standing in at first reciever, other then that i thought it look pretty decent

TNT88
06-07-11, 04:54 PM
I still play rugby08 every weekend when i am bored. I'd be very happy if this product was to replace it :D

The rucks look boring, but all in all it looks like a great game. People are going to complain about it, just like they'll complain about RWC2011. Just go to the FIFA forums to see where that kind of complaining leads people. Thousands of people on that website spend hours playing FIFA games only to b*tch and moan on the forums about how unforfilling the game was. The real problem is their attitude and unrealistic standards.

If there was one thing that stood out in this video, it was definitely the sidestepping.

L8NM
06-07-11, 04:58 PM
So what do you like about it?

Pretty much everything. But mostly the graphics. A quantum leap compared to the Rugby 08 re-hash job that the RWC2011 screenshots seem to suggest it is.

06-07-11, 05:06 PM
I must admit the graphics look good, the AI looked poor, the lineout system I am not sure about, the ruck system RWC 2011 wins hands down, the animations and sidesteps looked OK, commentary is awful, the kicking I am not sure whether I like the slow mo great for attacking play but not good for defensive play, the game looked slow...

Patrick Miller
06-07-11, 05:09 PM
the whistle sounds weird

TNT88
06-07-11, 05:10 PM
Agree with most of that. But Kicking looked pretty good, that slow motion thing could be considered annoying though. Also, i would be hoping this is just the beta AI :D

the gameplay looks like Rugby 2001 but with better graphics

it makes Nyanga and Ouedraogo look Asian though on the screenshots

Oh wow, so it wasn't meant to be released? i enjoyed the video. Stepping looked awesome, I think I saw a rolling maul of some sort? I'm guessing that the slow-mo kicking will be optional, i loved the presentation! as for the rucks, I saw that you could choose to either Attach Brutally or Quick, which was interesting. Didn't see any set plays which was a downer and commentary was ehhh.. not awful :P All i know is that i'll be buying this instead of RWC, more teams more modes etc. Looking good so far :)

06-07-11, 06:21 PM
Happily got to see it before it got taken down.

Commentary is a bit sh*te to be honest, luckily I generally prefer to listen to music anyway. And perhaps it is better in the final version, however from following the release of previous rugby games and saying "Oh, it's only the beta, it will get better" I'm not counting on it.

On the whole, good though, looking forward.

You are Jokeing, CORRECT!!!! DID YOU EVEN SEE THE VIDEO, I AM A FAN OF BOTH GAMES BUT , DO YOU REALIZE THAT THIS VIDEO WAS TAKEN DOWN BECAUSE IT WAS PRE BUILD AMONG I AM SURE OTHER REASONS, RUCKS DID NOT TAKE TO LONG, DO YOU WATCH or PLAY UNION OR LEAGUE???? lf you looked at every breakdown, the result of the ruck was exactly as what one thought it should be. Trust me I am the biggest analyzer to ruck play and I watched every ruck formed and paused it about 4 times each. Listen, I think both games will have great things to offer and I believe they will have some things in common, while other things very different. It just seems a little shady when you are the only one thus far with a negative comment. But I guess everyone to there own opinion. This is what I thought.
Just great!!!!! Was supposed to get some work done today:) Now I will spend 90% of the day analyzing this video:) and the other 10% watching Argentina vs columbia in futbol. Some how I got the feeling this video will not last very long on you tube, don't think there was permission, personal opinion, hopefully I am wrong. I any case, SIDHE , EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, SPECTACULAR, first impression, and lucky the french that can even analyze it more. Can you say (FRENCH DICTIONARY TRANSLATION):)
Loved the breackdown, you could actually retain possesion out wide. Correct me if I am wrong, but the rucking system looked spectacular, it seemed like , and I think because it is in French, not sure, rucking works like this is (TOTAL SPECULATION) you add players to the ruck when you see you have gained advantage on a circular meter you then press another button for the final grab, if the circle meter is mostly on your side, you win the ruck, this can happen with 2 players in the ruck or 5, it seems like you have to press the aggressive button at the correct time or maybe the sytem works like this you have two options to add players fast, or aggresive two different buttons giving you options of how to enter or function in ruck, Looks very, very, realistic both pace and over all game play. French dudes, Help us out here!!!! Some translations please to confirm some stuff. Mario, please give a big thank you to the Sidhe team, you can see lots and lots of originality and work put into this game already. I will be buying both games, rw2011, and two for Sidhe's game, PC and Ps3, but gut feeling(set on by video:)) is RC will get the trophy, could be proven wrong though, . Could not been happier how the gameplay looks, this is much better then a game trailer. Would of like to see somthing for set plays and mauls, don't know if they are included, i think mauls have been confirmed?? Hopefully the final build will have this rucking mechanism.(THIS WAS A PRE BUILD!!!!!!)
Mucho Cheers and Salud

TRF_Olyy
06-07-11, 07:10 PM
Meh, people can argue about it, but fact of the matter is that it did look similar to RL2

It looks 10x better than RL2, but is definitely recognisable as being made by the same people - running and passing very similar, even some of the tackles look like it too and what little I remember seeing of the side steps looks similar to the RL series
This isn't necessarily a slight on the game, as I enjoyed the RL games - just saying that it's not unlike the RL games. Hopefully it's like the RL games but with the flaws ironed out



As an aside from that, I didn't really like the look of the scrum, however I imagine when you're playing it you're focusing on the mini-game bar thing (which, again, I imagine is better in person than how it looked there...), so aren't really going to be looking at the scrum

umosay
06-07-11, 07:10 PM
Saying its like RL2, c'mon, get a grip...

Looked great I must say, passing was flat and fast and a huge improvement on the RL games.

Liked the lack of bunching that HB's games have had... when he got the run away try only a few chasers and the slow guys were left way back down the field.

06-07-11, 07:13 PM

Agreed with this.

umosay, dunno about the bunching was some there but people see only what they want to see.

On a sidenote, I did like the presentation of the game e.g. the entrance and the naming of the teams.

I genuinely feel for you Mario, nobody wants to see their work exposed without permission. I hope this does not dent the game too much in terms of licenses etc and i wish you luck in the build-up to the game's release.

TRF_Olyy
06-07-11, 09:00 PM
From a naive non-gaming-industry-point-of-view I don't understand why a licenser would remove their license because of this
Is it because it shows a lack of security or something?
I mean, they'd still have their brand exposed to a wide audience regardless of a leaked video etc.

Getofmeland

Was it someone on the team? As it was done through the SIDHE Account... or did you get hacked?

Sorry for the probing questions, just would be interesting to know.

Sidhe deliberately put it up but it was only viewable to those that had the direct link. Someone shared this link with the general public. Apparently they shouldn't have done that.

There are all sorts of copyright, confidentiality, and trademark violations going on.

I can tell you now, one licensor isn't happy. At a minimum, this has likely pushed back approvals by another 2 weeks. At worst, we'll lose a license.

From looking at the video I am worried that you can't catch the ball in a lineout and form a maul - you simply always tap the ball down to the scrum half. Can you form mauls from a lineout Mario? And can you form mauls at all? Also can you get faster ball at rucks as the rucks looked slow from the vid

I must say I liked the look of the video alot. definatly glad I have seen it. Sure there are a few things that would need a bit of work on (and I am sure I am going to be sick of Justin Marshall by the time i have played this a few times) but it still looked very good. I thought the scrum was a bit mini game ish, which does detract from the game a bit. Hopefully the side on view is nice as I like playing it on that. Hopefully if that is useless that they fix the posts because they get in the way otherwise when your in your own half. (make them semi transparent or something)

I do hope to watch/play a full game soon, i am itching to get my hands on both the titles.

Yeah after seeing it I have similar sentiments. I always play side-on so I am sure that will look better. Have to say that replay of Fritz running the length and stepping two players looked awesome!

Great!:

Graphics.
Very slick presentation.
Training + Fifa-style 'throw the ball around' pre-game.
Mauls in open play!
Goal kicking looked nice.
Slow-mo kicking. I have never played any other Sidhe games but I thought this looked OK. Will only be able to tell when I can try it out!
Concerns:

Rucks look very Rugby 2001 i.e. mini-scrums (which I didn't like). When do you see 8 players from each side contest a ruck?
As much as I thought the Fritz try was good, both the sidesteps looked exactly the same, and the defender did exactly the same thing. Little bit worried it will be Fifa-Street style 'if they get the timing right, you lose any control of the situation and the animation takes over'.
The HUGE bullet miss passes to the wingers. It happened twice to Clerc and for the Medard try. Just didn't seem right. Most of the passes seemed OK but for such a long pass there should at least be a short wind-up from the passer to get the power to put so much speed on it, or be a little more floaty to compensate.
Defence parted the red sea at times.
In some tackles it just seemed like everyone stood around watching instead of getting in ready to contest the ball.
Hopefully the game was being played on a really easy level by someone who didn't have a clue, and most of those concerns can be ignored. I still have a bad gut feeling about the rucks and animation/hijacking of the controls... We will just have to wait and see.

I have to with respect, DISAGREE!!!! this what I thought. Did you not see the smaller rucks???? The larger rucks are probably from blind button mashing, it seemed like the ruck was won and they just kept on adding players, but at least this gives us the control. (I am speculating though) Was there any ruck that looked like the wrong team won the ruck contest??? I analyzed by pausing all of the rucks and looking at the circle meter graphs that I imagine showed possesion, and not one ruck looked like it went to the wrong team, not one.

Just great!!!!! Was supposed to get some work done today:) Now I will spend 90% of the day analyzing this video:) and the other 10% watching Argentina vs columbia in futbol. Some how I got the feeling this video will not last very long on you tube, don't think there was permission, personal opinion, hopefully I am wrong.

I will be buying both games, rw2011, and two for Sidhe's game, PC and Ps3, but gut feeling(set on by video:)) is RC will get the trophy. Could not been happier how the gameplay looks, this is much better then a game trailer. Would of like to see somthing for set plays and mauls, don't know if they are included, i think mauls have been confirmed??
Mucho Cheers and Salud

It's bound to have been downloaded and re-uploaded a couple of times, that happens all the time on youtube.

Look hard enough and I'm sure you'll be able to find a copy.

Im pretty certain as of right now it is nowhere on the internet.

I've seen the video myself, but I honestly feel bad for Mario, Milla, Sidhe & HES that this has happened to them. At the time in the morning over here that it appeared I was very tired and should've exercised better judgement and let them know via PM on both forums, so they could've seen it as soon as possible. Sorry about that Mario. I certainly hope that whoever has done this as part of the retail chain in France is dealt with accordingly and that all of your licensors realise that this was something of which you had no real control.

Aside from that, the game appears at this stage to be a fairly strong product, a lot of pros and a few cons, but still of course something I'm buying on release.

No problem, not your responsibility.

Good to know when stuff like this happens I can rely on my spider sense at least. I woke up inexplicably at 5.30am with a "something is wrong" feeling and thought "I'd better just check the forums".

Would you say the same about RWC11 against Rugby 08. I doubt it. Wonder why...

Of course not. Because RWC11 has the same (stone age) visuals as Rugby 08.

Sidhe deliberately put it up but it was only viewable to those that had the direct link. Someone shared this link with the general public. Apparently they shouldn't have done that.

such a bad thing to happen for sidhe right in the middle of their media campaign. I hope everything can be sorted out and the loss of a license doesn't happen. even though it was leaked from an obvious beta build the comments about it seem largely postive. still look forward to the release of rugby challenge and of course seeing some gameplay footage from a match.

After a fair bit of reflection and watching the clip a few times there are some real positives and a few negatives, doubts and concerns. The presentation on this game is leaps and bounds a head of most sports titles and the graphics in game are better than Fifa IMO. The cut scenes are actually quiet remarkable in terms of players faces and actions.

Now down to the real issues. The game play looked a bit flat with a lack of variation in attack. The collisions looked good but seemed to lack intensity(might be different if rumble is effective). The passing looked ok but did not look like much of an improvement over RL2(graphics withstanding). There were quiet a few times where a player was held up in the tackle and both teams stood back and watched the arm wrestle until he went to ground. Looked very much like a league game when this occured. Never saw a maul the whole game. Rucks looked pretty good but I have a few slight concerns in the time it takes the forwards to arrive sometimes. To stop bunching like in previous rugby titles they seem to have programmed a line that the players will not cross once a player makes a break to eradicate this affect, which will be very frustrating.

This is especially obvious in the last try where the guy stepped the last defender and the 9 ran over to him and practically touched him and then the programming took over and he would not make the tackle and practically ran the other way. The stepping animations are the same for all players(no problem from for me not a big deal) but they are once again animations that have to complete before you can control the game again.



Biggest issue and concern is the tackle animation kicks in a couple of seconds before there is contact. There were quite a few times where the animation would kick in before the player as actually reached the man(sucked to the man effect) and all the players stop until the game has processed the animation. This is a huge problem in some sports titles as it breaks the game rhythm and takes away that split second of control needed for a game to really flow. this will also seriously affect online as when you add lag this is going to effect the gameplay in a massive way.

Overall the game is from a visual perspective is very impressive, however I think that the game play will become a bit repetitive and one dimensional in a short space of time. I hope that my views will prove unfounded after purchasing the game.

Looked very interesting, sad to hear that all hell has broken loose with SIDHE though, can't believe that licence grantors would be so anal about stuff. Its that french retailer, they've also put up a "box art" for it (not linking cause i'll be told off :P). From their game description it looks like it'll have lots of clubs, which should leave us with a "Loop hole" with international sides ;) (I'm now going to await a slap on the wrist :D)

Or simply remember that it's in Beta, and judge accordingly. Although I shouldn't have been privy to the game's developments, I can still find it intriguing. I'm not that dumb that I must forget something to cast a proper verdict.

To the old schoolers!!! Hell I think we helped make the games we have played up to now.

only for private viewing. nobody in the public was ever meant to see it since it had things that hadn't been approved of by the licensors. a french retailer leaked it when they shouldn't of which is currently causing a lot of problems for sidhe which could result in the loss of a license and potentially delay the games release date. the video that was on youtube was pulled down immediately once sidhe knew about the leak. you can read the beginning of this thread to see what people think of it that did see it before it was pulled down.
