"Our first impressions of Rugby 2005 are very positive. This Rugby ***le is easily going to be the best we have seen from any publisher. The build we played is still a work in progress, so unfortunately we can't give details of the game or expand on the different features that impressed us most. I can say this thought. The players look much more real and the game play (which is the most important aspect to any sports game) is much more realistic. If you're a avid Rugby fan, get ready, because March is going to be a very exciting start to the rugby seaon.
I'm sure we'll be able to track down the producer of Rugby 2005, (who is an Aussie by the way) and have a chat on the Cyber Shack radio show. I can't wait for March!"
sorry, but even if I'd played the game for 10 minutes, I'd tell you everything in every detail! I'm not saying this bloke hasn't played it, but he is holding back on something for a reason...Originally posted by umosay@Jan 19 2005, 09:52 PM

Oh the pressure! Seriously I want to tell you what I loved about it but I only got 30 minutes of game time and I need to play the game in more depth before making a comment about individual game elements and throwing around my impressions."

My two cents :
The review says basically: " The build was a work in progress so we can't give any details on the included features." There is no gameplay issue in that........EAsports wants to keep the game features secret so they asked the guys not to reveal anything. That doesn't mean the game is crap. And by definition, a game is stated as "Work in progress" until it goes gold which happens usually 4 to 3 weeks before the release date.
My guess is that if the game was not as good as expected, they would say something in the review about it, and that's not the case. I'm pretty confident that this year effort will be a stellar improvement from "rugby 2004" (they can only improve). will Rugby 2005 be the answer to our dreams ?? i don't think so but i'm pretty sure we're slowly getting there.
