    I have an email from a guy at EA Sports NZ and talked to him a little bit about Rugby 2004, but haven't had any replies about Rugby 2005.

    Apart from that, you'd be very lucky if you got a reply from EA Sports.

  9. Electronic Arts tackling Rugby 2005

    Second scrum sim from EA Sports game takes the field this spring for the PS2, Xbox, and PC.
    Time to tape those ears down and join the scrum, as Electronic Arts today announced that it is once again tackling the sport of rugby. Rugby 2005, the follow-up to Rugby 2004, is currently in development at HB Studios is being produced by EA Canada. It will be released for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC this spring.


    All major international rugby teams and players will be featured in the Rugby 2005. Also included are several real-world tournaments, including the Super 12 and the Tri-Nations. This year's version also features graphic upgrades, including new motion-captured animation, authentically detailed stadiums, and enhanced lighting effects. Players will be able to control players with on-the-fly play calling, an improved kicking system, and fakes and tackles using the right analog stick.

    GameSpot will have more details on Rugby 2005 as they surface.

    Where the hell did you find that out?

    If there was one option I could take from the Madden Games and put it in a Rugby Game it would be the Hit Stick

    Yeah, the right stick is used for big hits and dummies

    I wonder if they'll do that thing where if you mistime the big hit you end missing the player and falling flat on your arse/face
     
  13. umosay

    umosay Guest

    the tackles in the video look like they are from standing starts, like the runner is running hard at the tackler but then gets pummeled. This is a bit different to Madden, WCR etc whereby the big hit comes after the tackler has sprinted a short distance or so. Will be interesting to see once the rugby 2005 demo comes out...

    well if you think about it most tackles in rugby union are done from a standing player running into tackle situation... it's in league where you see the more bone rattling clashes due to the 10 metre rule.
