Initially i thought this game was pretty good......but now I've completely changed my mind because of one thing; The AI. Easy and normal are way too easy and as soon as you play in hard mode the AI starts with it's outright cheating, you want examples? Okay; 1- I was playing against France, they were giving away penalty after penalty for handling in the ruck and dangerous tackles, i counted.......turns out they did a total of 16 of these penalties, without a single booking. The first time i get called for handling in the ruck i get a red card........ then later on (After yet more AI penalties with no cards) i give away my second penalty of the game....yellow card.....WTF!!!!!! This has happened multiple times against multiple teams. 2- How come the AI can run straight off the back of a Ruck/Maul/Scrum and get a few good yards, while my players look on aimlessly, but if i try it; as soon as i pick up the ball BAM, tackled! 3- The AI magically becomes the greatest spear tackling team in the world as soon as you get within 5m of their try line. 4- Lineouts. Seriously, WTF?! They just take mine away whenever it's a crucial moment, why?! 5- I've had a scrum that the opposition will collapse repeatable (Seemingly infinite loop, so long as i keep pushing in the same way each time) inside their own 22, the ref just resets the scrum.....no penalty, no card....even after the 12th reset in a row! I collapse one a bit later and....surprise, surprise......penalty. 6- From the kick-off, if the AI kicker kicks a high ball to the off side (Sorry, not sure of the technical term here) i.e the opposite side to where the forwards are, their player will always manage to catch it, even when I'm under it and jump to get it..... There's plenty more, but i just can't be bothered to list them all. The game as a whole seems way to focused on the statistics of the teams, rather than on me playing it. It's like "Hey, they've got a higher overall rating than you, so they get to win the lineout....and the ruck......and the scrum............." I'm seriously thinking of throwing this game out of the window in my rage!!!
