Like I said in my review, well worth a purchase....heck I'm still playing rugby 05, I just living with the negatives in the game.

I think people who purchase rc06 will enjoy playing on the game, some may even won't care the bad points I listed.

I, for one, will be buying the game when it comes out. Ti's a shame that it may be the last game. It desperately needs further games to create a Lomu beater. They are very close, I just hope they will release another.

There was a demo last year, but i dont think it got public release. I Stayed in gamesman playing one for hours, eventually the guy gave me a copy to take home just to get rid of me. He said that every store got two or three copies. There was a pc demo for 2004, hopefully they do that again.

I got one! EA sent it to me from Australia. They had this whole training day thing, and I sent them an e-mail saying I would be over in NZ for a while and could they send it to me here. They did!

Where there's a will there's a way!

HandsomeBob's review is absolutely spot on.

Rucks are a big let down for me, slow ball, with no opportunity to pick up and drive. A major part of the game of rugby, totally omitted.

Press square. [/b]
That's for your scrum half to run, after all of your forwards have piled in and won the ruck. There's no quick ball.

I would agree that the game lacks badly in certain areas, however rugby is a very complex game to translate to game IMHO, and you can include everything you want, but you got to be able to actually do it in the game.

I like the game, the best i have played yet. I think this was targeted at the casual rugby fan who may not really notice the omissions. The fact is i only got the game a couple of days ago and i have already had some great matches and it is very easy to learn, and like any good game, should be difficult to master.

I'd say 7/10, but as was pointed out.. any game series normally improves on it's sequel(s). Probably unlikely to see a sequel, but you never know.

I wonder if i can edit the game though to add Lome Fa'atau and his amazing tribal tattoos!

I'm looking at editing the kit graphics if that interests anyone?

I`d be interested in some kits. I did all the 2006 Super League kits, but i`m having trouble running the game :(

I managed to add the magners logo to the wasps shirt. In theory, using photoshop, baggi studios and dds converter i can add logos to kits. I just tried the samoa shirt, it's not 100%.. really a plain/generic kit template would be ace but there aren't any.

I will try the game out and see if the graphic edit worked, and if it does, hopefully i can do some more. Give me your email jeff and i'll email you?

This forum seems pretty inactive.

It is.

What with the game long since being released and played not many people talk about it anymore.
