This thread is for all NZers, the demo is now playing in your Gamesman stores as we speak!! I went to gamesman 2day and was tantilisingly surprised to see rugby05 playing. I promptly husshd the little chinese boy hacking at the game and had a solid 2 1/2 hours playing Aus vs Eng, and vice versa...................

this game is seriously the ****!!!! although i found myself quickly getting use to the controls, and beating the opposition by 20 or so points, this is by far the best rugby game eva

although 1 problem i quickly noticed was the gap between 12 and 13 was quite large and i cud consistently break the line at that point. but hopefully thats just coz the difficulty setting was at easy!!!

nice tackling animations, awesum fend, beautiful step and set plays just dropped my jaw. they work surprisingly gud. AI was pretty gud aswell!!!!
Overall im really looking forward to this game. any q's do not hesitate

Yea cuz i played it down at EB games Cuba mall and its the **** i scored a length of the feild try with tuquri( blitz passed cohen and lewsey without slowing down or anything), if tuquris that fast i wonder how fast caucau is, then straight afta made a break in the midfeild with mortlock and scored in the corner with smith. Il be headin down there tomorrow 2 give it another go but overall i agree its the best game out there so far from wat ive played. i didnt get 2 defend yet either so hopefully get 2 thrash it some more tomorrow.

Hopefully McDonalds will do what they did with the Rugby 2004 PC Demos and include them with some of the more expenisve meals... (preferably with the Hunger Buster - those are the only reasons I go to McDonalds anymore.)

lol. I got that Rugby 2004 demo aswell.

If only it had worked, it may have prevented me forking out for the game.

yeah the guys at gamesman said that to get it on xbox, coz the graphics are alot sharper, and i noticed when playing the ps2 version, it would slow down abit on sum animations!!!!

but just got back from gamesman, had another hour or so on the game, and its just the best!!! i mean the little things they include make it that much better.Like the cutscenes are magnificient!! although they tend to be the same ones, now and then you get a new one.

Like today one cutscene was of Lote Turqiri on the ground, on top of sum1 giving him little jabs to the head it looked like!!! Just adds to the awesumness of this game. and with EA hopefully gonna make this an annual thing, then obviously they are just gonna add more and more to it.

Also the AI is awesum. Although they kick alot, they are just kicking for territory, and when you are defending, you not always gonna tackle the AI. I lost 27-5 to England, then lost again,8-7, with wilko slotting the drop kick in the last minute. Made me scream!!!(and i looked like abit of a [email protected] aswell).

Ohhh, and one other thing i noticed was when you have a scrum, you can pick the ball up at No8!!!!

Played it today at EB, PS2 Version. OK Game. PS2 is so choppy and slow, less smooth than 2004 in some aspects I thought, but I own a PS2 so thats what I'll be getting it on. Game is still way better than 2004, but on this mode, Just as easy as it. Gap up the middle every time, and Tuqiri can go round the outside every time...

Still gonna buy it, cause it's pretty cool.

I played it today at EB and found it the same as everyon else, too easy, gap in centre every time, a bit blocky(ps2), the ai seemed quite competent in defence but could not threaten on attack, even though I couldnt tackle!!! Overall though a hude improvement and alot of fun. I went to gamesman and central park as well to try and score a copy but they all said no. The guy at EB said that it will not be relesed to the public. Hope he was lying.

I wouldn't worry about the gap in the middle as a human player has many ways to fix this up.
