guys i can almost garuentee that they wont leave all blacks out...the tri nations countries will all be definately licensed
I can almost guarantee that the All Blacks and the Wallabies WILL
be left out due to HES having "exclusive" rights to both teams... with that being said, I'm sure that New Zealand and Australia will feature in the game.
HB really have some great building blocks with Rugby 06 and 08 (the two best rugby games around) and lets hope that Rugby 2012 is even better. Good graphics are a must! I can't take RRL seriously as it looks worse than Rugby 06! but i'm not expecting the game to look like Fifa 11 or Madden 11, but it does need to be a great leap forward from Rugby 08. Something i'd like to see alot more of would be individual player animations were props move like props and winger move like wingers, instead of just having fast and slow players...
Gameplay is a must though (especially since there there are already some big licenses missing...) At the end of the day the best games need good gameplay, so lets hope they both get it right!
