    Yes I hope you're right - Locksley can't have had the game for long but has played it solidly since he got it, and think is a very accomplished gamer. I recon if it is too hard (witout cheating - I refuse to cheat!!) then as I said before, we might be able to tweak the teams to make it a little easier??

    yeah maybe jimmy that could be a good idea

    when we say "cheat", are we talking about a technique or trick which always works kinda as a loophole, rather than a deliberate game-breaking code thingy.

    apologies for overwhelming use of tecnical jargon.

    Does the AI play differentiy for the teams in the game [Argentina strong foward play, France always looking to counter attack, The Samoans looking for the big hit ect ] or do they all play the same way just varying difficulties

    Thats what I meant - its a bit like 2004 when you could almost always score or at least gain huge yardage using the bling side set move from the scrum. Never any defence that side!!

    Can you tell me if the trick you talk about is also effective when playign the AI on hard difficulty? - is it still too easy to score tries?

    Can it? I pressed start with both controller icons in the middle and it wouldn't let me start a match until I moved a controller to either side!

    Hi All

    Yesterday at the Preview of the Game i spoke to Andrew Wilson. I asked about the kicking and he wasnt too happy about the criticism. I also asked him about off-loads, because when i was playing the game sometimes i could offload but never when i was falling. He said that they had plenty of Animations for the offloads, but they couldnt combine them all. He said the offloads in the game are when your just been tackled, but you cant offload if your been tackled around the ball area. He also said if not timed properly you would knock the ball on.

    On one hand im disappointed but this is due to the Time schedule more than anything else. But on the other hand im so excited that there is a contest for the ball at the Tackle. Some are timing errors or just a big hit. I also had to get used to not pressing the X button too much at Ruck time as i would have no defenders in the Back line. This is very good especially at pressure situations. Brilliant.

    lucky for him

    i would have sprayed a shitload of crap towards him for the lying on rugby 2004
    then pat him on the back for rugby 2005
    it is that good, all in rugby 2004 is forgiven!!!!

    Its that good AK47. It is actually beyond belief. I struggled early on the XBox version (The control is crap for Rugby and they game didnt respond as well as the PS2 but graphics are breath Taking). But when you get the hang of everything you dont want to stop. The only issue i have is with the kicking, its such an important part, especially when you getting smashed and losing ground, you need to try and gain some easy yards. I was having to start breaks from around my 22 to close to the try line, sometimes i would go 20 phases to get there. Very Hard work. On that note the Rucks are very good, play close to the pack and you will very rarley lose possesion.

    Someone should've brought along Rugby 2004 and made Andrew Wilson play it. [​IMG]

    Did he look like he was going to kill/rape/mortally-wound you when you scored that try?

    He looks like the sort of person who would do such a thing.
