Get the Xbox version. It's AWESOME!!!! I played it today for the first time at Knowsleyroaders and he wasn't wrong... the difference between it and the PS2 version is dazzling! 1) The "Classic 2" view on xbox is zoomed in closer to the action, the player models are bigger and more in proportion to the pitch! 2) The game is silky smooth! The frame rate is far superior to the PS2 version and this really does help when it comes to controlling the players! 3) The controls really aren't a problem at all, in fact, after extended play on both versions, I prefer the Xbox control! 4) The sound is much beefier and seems better. 5) Analog control on the Xbox is far more responsive and makes defending more of a pleasure than a chore. 6) Replays do not jerk or speed up like the PS2 7) The "Tactic" doesn't work half as much due to improved analog control while defending. We had a couple of games on the Xbox version then switched straight onto the PS2. It appeared slow, jerky and unplayable compared to the xbox one! That's not to say that it isn't good, because if I hadn't played the xbox version I'd still be playing it now. However, I know I won't touch rugby 2005 again until I buy my Xbox copy this friday!
