    Sounds pretty good.
    I haven't played the first one because the whole manage side of things haven't really appealed to me. The licencing sounds good though.

    The graphics look pretty promising for a management based game:
  4. The first game was good, just a little flawed in places. Looking forward to a new version though.
  5. Haha my comp wont run this i got most of the minimum specs but i reckon it will struggle to run this [​IMG]

    The only thing I don't have is the right graphics card, as this is the work computer.
    I'll have to clear some space on the laptop then. [​IMG]
    When is it expected to come out?

    The things that disapointed me was,

    *Too Inconsistant scorelines (1st game I won = 91 - 10, after that it lost every match, then drawn 2 games [​IMG] )

    * Player Search feature - but alot of players didn't have the real names, so when you searched for a player, it wouldn't find him

    * The Layout of the game was too complex

    If they could improved on what I mentioned, then it could be a good sequal

    When I saw the first game I laughed and saw no way that some budget looking rugby managing game could be good. Is this next one going to be worth buying and will it come close to competing with Championship Manager (aka Football Manager 2005 now.)

    Did ya patch it? because that should have fixed the names up. I must say the layout is a bit difficult , although it was my second management game after international cricket captain 2002 so i dont have a lot of experience with them. The next game should be good. Theyve got some fans doing some extensive testing so there should be a lot less bugs on release.

    The good thing about it is that it will have online multiplayer (well the last one did aswell but anyway), I hope this time there is a little bit more input from the player though.
  12. gjohn85

    gjohn85 Guest didn't think about patching it [​IMG]

    Oh well, I might give it another go, 'patched' this time & see if that helps! [​IMG]

    Go here:

    And download the 'real names database'.

    And then copy and paste it to the database folder in PRM and load it when you start the game up.

    Cheers Serge!! top man! [​IMG]
  15. Digital Jesters should try and get Sports Interactive involved. That would definately give a boost to the stats side of the game.
