I think the expectation of RC2006 being a great game has dampened since the recent reviews. I've noticed more action in the EA 2006 forum. I will be frank. Jonah lomu rugby was a great rugby game and had both simulation and practical arcade fun, the combination worked. I and quite a lot of rugby fans waited for the next gen consoles to replicate that brilliance. WCR was a collusion, a gimmic of the sport a bit like nba jam for basketball. I especially didn't like the scrums and the 'charge tackling'. It wasn't challenging and there was not enough substance. If trevor and the rest at swordfish want to create a game that excite rugby gamers and install loyalty to future products they should take a leaf out of the guys who work on pro evolution soccer. I have played iss ( as it was called) or Pro evolution since it was on the Playstation one and bought every single one uptil now on the Playstation 2 and look foward to the Playstation 3 version. The guys that develop Pro evo have developed the natural and realistic football mannerisms over about 8 years tweeking it with every new release. Their product at this time is regarded as the most realistic football sim/arcade. They have fought against EA for loyalty, licensing monopolies and budjets have stood in their way but quality surpasses anything. They now have most of the licenses and real footballers like thierry henry and football referee perluigi collina have endorsed the game. I hope you guys can achieve this as that's what gamers , rugby fans and everyone in the forums wants.
