there is alway ea rugby 2006 ceeyjay
yeah the rucks in this game seem to be not quite there. although I guess they fit well into the arcade approach of the game. knowsleyroader isn't too keen on the ea2006 rucks so maybe they are better as he like the rc2006 ones
there are no rucks in EA2006
its a play-the-ball, with a rucking animation
u watch it and dont do anything
Alot worse than RC2006
I will tell everyone this now, that EA2006 rucking is mapped from 2005, and is the same ole auto-crap, pile men into animation, and have a ball roll out the back
pure shitness, pure random, and alot less interactive than RC2006
which is why RC2006 remains appealing
sure it has issues but it seems from whats available the most interactive rucking system in years. [/b]
ak! come on bud...
*edit* - oh and I must quickly say, no, no , no on your comments re: automatic rucking etc.....it can be turned any number of ways - you just have to have played a lot and experimented to work them out - and is quite competitive if you know what you are douing in rugby 05, let alone rugby 06.....illegal turn over works too depending on who has made the tackle and/or who is in the ruck...certain personnel and numbers affecting it greatly....also the amount of numbers you put in the ruck affected your subsequent move and or use of forwards in the backline...whether you went blind etc etc etc....saying they are automatic...is really like saying crosses on pes5 are automatic...um, yes, but you might want to do a super high one, or a flat one with double press, or send it along the floor entirely etc etc etc....just cos you choose to play it simply...doesn't mean it has to be. Frankly, from what I read, few if any people on this site understand the intiricacies of rugby05 or how it is played. In the early stages of playing rugby 06 = it will be the same for everyone again. Who will have the balls to persevere and play the game properly this time around, by giving it the benfit of the doubt re: depth and discovering so for yourselves? we wait with baited breath...**edit**
mauls will be good (although also with faults etc)....
but your being a bit general, as the rucking in RC2006 involves button mashing x till you get heaps of forwards in and then passing etc.....
what's really the diff? in EA06 it is the same. except once done you can have SEVERAL options of what to do next...box kixk, pass left or right to forward or back, spark off a set move (yes - a SET MOVE - what are they like in RC2006....oh, that's right)...lol!!
etc etc....and in rugby06 like rugby 05, you can have very quick ruck ball if you so desire...oh, with out button mashing.
yes, there are interactive mauls and they are by all accounts better than EA06...
if that is a reason to buy a game...I understand your passion AK!
but what about:
terrible behind the man tackle animations on breakaways
no SH licenses or likenesses
etc etc etc
surely, it is of little use to plug one advantage, when so many faults exist?
I am glad you will be getting the forward experience (in one, maybe two regards) that you have yearned for....but personally I must tell you not to waste your money. It is my duty to lead people to the best game. If you can afford to squander money three weeks from getting a better game of the same code.....so be it.
admittedly, I have taken a multibet ($5) to try and win 80 to get the game with out having to spend my own money on the crap....however, if I lose (quite likely - come on Sangakarra!!) then I will only be hiring and getting rugby06.
speed bar is the ONLY thing that needs to be said really - but I could go on and on. Even with the negative comments circulating from players of the game (oh and for more than an hour or two - when they WANT the game to be good and don't get as bugged by bugs..is human nature after all), I feel it maybe worse and is still being sugar coated.
What are the professional reviewers, who are more cynical, saying? Mmmmmmmmmmm.....see that's why it doesn't look good frankly.
Don't get me wrong tho AK, I hope you love the game more than any other before it and get gaming nirvana creamy goodness......but I don't see how anything points to this and fear you may be hoping against hope. good luck.
