thank you, very nice review indeed. Can't wait for the release or an d I hope for a demo next week!
Well to put it into perspective, Pro Evolution Soccer 5 is the best sports game, bar none, in my opinion. I would give that a 98% easily, but Rugby 2006 has been taking up all my time lately, and I even dropped out of a Pro Evo tournament to play it.Originally posted by C A Iversen@Jan 21 2006, 11:31 AM
Gotta say, thanks for the review, Locks. I feel like you praised the game with relevant criticism thrown in. I didn't feel like my expectations were being over-hyped.
I feel like I'm looking forward to, say a 15-20% better game this time round.
The only thing that worries me a little is that 92% mark. It couldn't be that awesome......could it? I really hope so.
You've played it quite a bit, but if you play it some more over the next few days, and decide to lower it slightly, due to things you find, I won't mind. If it stays at 92% till release, well there'll be a day booked off work for sure!!
Maybe even two.
Yeah if u ever get a game!Originally posted by Sallad Tobar@Jan 22 2006, 11:38 PM
92% is far too high for a game that is not online
Thats one advantage that Rugby League 2 has over Rugby 06
Well the beauty of it is that you could get to play people you couldnt by the 1 xbox and a few beers method. Like people on this forum who you chat with regular but probably will never meet.Originally posted by Teh Mite@Jan 23 2006, 12:21 AM
Why do people see games being online as so important, especially for sports games?
It's always the same old ****; If your whupping somone, they'll disconnect.
When your playing, it's not like your sitting with friends having a tournament. Your on your own talking to a microphone strapped to your head. You may as well be against the AI.
Plus most people play against their friend who live 5 minuetes down the road...Meet up, use 1 Xbox, crack open a few beers and stop sitting on your own!
Online sports games? Pffft
