I'd be very interested to see what people actually find annoying or downright diabolical about RL2. Threads like this won't appear on the Sidhe forums cos they'll get deleted, so I thought I'd create one here. And, if anyone from Sidhe is reading this thread, then don't take it the wrong way. Maybe you could look at this thread and take it into account when, sorry, IF you are given the go ahead to create RL3. So, I'm going to disregard graphics etc as I couldn't really care if they're photorealistic if the gameplay stinks like a festering turd. Obviously, superb graphics and a sweet game engine would be brilliant, but I'd rather gameplay be fixed first. I'll start us off with my list of gripes. Unresponsive control on the ball carrier Too many tackles are made by the AI - Not enough human defending Way too many Held up in goal situations slow play the balls dummy half scoot is just an animation. It needs to be a controllable one. Camera angles - There isn't a REALLY good one. Behind and High are adequate, not great. Bombs are useless - Camera angle too high up Jumping for the ball - WTF???? You have to press Square about 50 times to get your player to put the ball down over the line Too many knock ons - They need toning down, not turning off Hammering X for momentum. Get rid of it. Just have a sprint button that works instantly. The dummy is useless now The side-step isn't very good The "RUGBY LEAGUE 2" Splash screen...AHHHHHHHHHHHHH GET...IT...OFF Passing is improved on RL1 but STILL doesn't feel right PC Joypad configuration is awful and can't be fixed by omitting a redefine key option... why? There was one in RL1 for christs sake! I really think that if an RL3 is to be developed, then Sidhe need to start the game engine from scratch. They could really benefit from sitting down for a few hours with Jonah Lomu Rugby, Rugby Challenge 2006 and, in some ways, Rugby 2005 to see how each game captured the basic "Full control" of Rugby. It really is a crying shame, because Rugby League 2 had so much going for it, only to be let down by a barely improved control system than Rugby League 1. All the development budget and time seemed to go onto fancy player graphics, online and franchise modes. This to me was a real waste of time because: a - You only get to appreciate the good player models in cut scenes.... which are usually turned off! b - Online mode has some terrible lag issues c - Franchise is flawed with frequent injuries and the fact that ESL teams can't buy NRL players and vice-versa. Ok, rant over. Let's see what others think.
