i didnt know where to ask this so ill ask it here. Can u pick ur own barbarian side from scratch,or do u have to pick from selected players. it would be awesome if you could pick anyone to create your own dream team.
thats my point though i dont think ive ever seen brakley for the barbarians. And the british lions will prob be unlockable,but you can play them from the start i presume because im fairly sure theres a fully liscensed lions tour.
good game not great but very solid and hopefully is the structure for future version...hint hint
for me about 7 1/2 outta 10
good points -awesome graphics,animation and very uh...madden like presentation -the tutorial or rugby101 -ive been playing quite abit and the gameplay is vastly improving...using the dpad moves is getting better and i love pick n go with the forwards(black and white buttons for xbox) -alotta teams,players,stadiums generally the licensing -stealing the ball with the right joystick
...if u got mccaw selected behind a ruck press in the r-stick and he usually wins it...totally killed my brothers precious auckland blues -the flow of the game is spot on...like the smoothness of running -some cutscenes(i love those punches on the ground....its...its a thing of beauty) -playing soccer with the ball...eg kicking it on the good(has great potential for a good part of my tries in the future
) i like goal kicking...makes sense but needs improve
flaws -the music sucks...totally pulls me away from playing rugby and puts my imagination in the backseat with 3 white guys going down to the beach....music is garbage-END -the cutscenes slow down the game...i wanna tap and go straight away -correct stats both for teams and players(i know mccalister sux at the moment but he is not that bad as rated in this game....or is he?
) -the game or gameplay doesnt really open up....its too bunched whereva the ball is -right joystick moves such as sidestep are not very effective.. -THAT FREAKIN BIG HOLE IN THE MID-FIELD....IVE SCORED 70% OF MY TRIES THROUGH THERE!!!
-kicking will take time to master...but isnt very effective -lineouts are so one sided so when mastered its basically uncontestable -too many bighits...i mean shore if you got the pacific islanders...but theyve been pushed too hard in this games...out of every 3 tackles one is a very bighit -no head highs or illegal tackle calls -and that stupid stupid ea logo that flies by every two seconds in gameplay.....makes me so angry
..... -no campaign mode....from super12 to test season to tri-nations to world cup!!!
thats it for now kids...THE WARRIORS/BRONCOS R ON....WOOHOO...GO WARRIORZ
Sometimes I'd give it 6 other times an 8 out of 10. I find its getting a bit repetitive after extended play but I guess you could say that about anything if you do it often enough (apart from sex of course, and maybe pocket billiards)
I had to turn the music off. The Libertines suck. So that was the first song to go anyway. It wasn't long before it became so repetitive I had to turn it all off. I have to say tho that the opening song on 2004, (was it INXS?) is still brilliant, music is important. I think they should make it so you can use songs from your own harddrive or something. Play specific songs when you score tries along with the replay. Should be cool
