Rugby 2006 was previewed on Gamer TV ( Bravo in UK ) last night. They did a 2 minute piece with some in game footage. What struck me was how similar it looked to R2005 with the same animations etc etc , but I believe the boys who have played it said the same thing. The footage contained England vs Ireland @ Twickers with Jonny Wikinson at 10 for England ! I liked the look of the tap penalties and quick throw ins , even though Cueto took a quick throw to Steve Thompson in his 22 and he booted it into touch ! Offloads were in too but I managed to miss that bit .
The squad management aspect and World League looked improved and they said they'd be reviewing it next month.
The Gamer TV shows get repated millions of times a week if you live in the UK and have SKY .....
It is VERY similar to R2005. I thought everyone was aware of that ? [/b]
i am beginning to think that RC2006 will be the rugby game for me
i played EA2005 last night, and its just plain crap
apart from backline movement and running the rest is shambles
there is ZERO forward play
there is ZERO interaction at the rucks
i need variety, i need speed, i need frantic rugby with variety in play
the fact that u cant have ANY........NOT 1, nothing, u get ZERO MAULS
except after a line-out...........WOW..............its automtic, u cant decide when to start a rolling mauls, and u cant even push it with any interaction, its the same thing everytime
ZERO ROLLING MAULS
ZERO MANUAL RUCKS
imagine an NFL game NO BLITZING
imagine an NBA game with NO 3 POINTERS (ok, post 1980, or whatever)
imagine an NHL game with NO FIGHTS or CHECKS
imagine a GOLF game with NO PUTTING....(well, when ak47 isnt playing, coz yes i rarely need to putt
We may have offloads in 2006, but we still subjected to the same BS in automatic breakdowns, which has ZERO human skill element
hurry up RC2006.........i need a fix to this automatic stuff
