Hi there - does anyone know if a modder has created a decent gameplay improvement patch for rugby 2005? There are loads for cricket 2004 and 2005 but hardly anything for rugby.
WTF!?!?Originally posted by BigTen@Sep 13 2005, 11:24 PM
You could always play blind-folded. I find that challenging!
It's a better game the more you play it after you have played it beyond when you didn't like it...if that makes sense...does to me as has worked exactly that way.Originally posted by BigTen@Sep 14 2005, 10:47 PM
Ha-ha I was just joking. One thing that I really dislike about rugby 2k5 and that is the lack of tactics. I mean even rugby2k4 had the option of backs, forward or mixed. The next version simply must have the option of adjusting strategy and tactics.
Another thing that I want is the ability to do draw passes. By this I mean holding down the pass button will result in the selected intended recipient of the pass starts running into the gap. Get the timing right and the player will break the line. Too late and the pass is forward or the passer gets smashed by the defence and too early and the player receives a hospital pass or has no where to go.
Being able to adjust tactics would certainly add a bit more playability to the game. Not that I am knocking it totally - it is still the best rugby game out there but it has some way to go until being the real deal.

Well done Los Lover!Â You seem to have taken the game and pushed the envelope.Â Be scary to see you in competition (online) if a footie game goes there and EVERYBODY is keen and competing.
Do you have any tips for me?Â I still play against people but we use the no dive tackle rule.
This box kick for the winger technique.Â I have heard of it but I am still not sure how to execute the kick.

Sorry we won't go back to dive tackles. The main reason is because it LOOKS too fake some of them. We have been playing no dive tackles for a while now and as a result we hardly ever miss a straight forward tackle. Tackles are only missed because the attacker was too tricky rather than the defender got it messed up. Because of this the game when we play actually LOOKS like a very real game of rugby and not at all like an unrealistic computer game.
And when we do make breaks in one on one multiplayer...................they look really good because you can do more when you know you won't be caught with a 5 metre diving ankle tap.
I tell you............no dive tackle for multiplayer is a whole lot more fun with the boys. Both 2 and 4 player. You should try it los
P.S. Widescreen on XBox has the game running slower than normal so we can't play it that way though it is fine when we play it widescreen format on PS2. So you have won that debate.
