Like most of the threads on this site, this has de-generated into a rambling slanging match (last 2 threads excepted).
It originally started with a discussion of Rugby 2006.
2 phrases sum it up :
1. We need better gameplay.
2. Any info about R2006 would be welcome !
i guess we'll be playing on the X Box 360 and PS3 by the time R2006 comes out.
-Passing was no where near responsive enough! If a tackler was in position for a tackle (even 5 metres away from you), then you couldn't pass!!! This meant that there were no offloads and drawing your man was very bloody hard. Ontop of that cut out passes were too high and floaty (which sorta makes them useless) and intercepts were virtually impossible.
-the rucks need to be far more interactive! You should have some controll over whether your player can stand on his feet and then be able to go for the ball
-both were ok, but there needs to be much more deapth here... esp line outs where you could only have one length.
-possibly one of the biggest problems in the game is how useless the AI is! They are so incredibly predictable and slow in attack that they only ever score tries through freakish opportunism...
-a massive leap over 2004, but the stadiums and feild markings are still pretty pathetic... The constant littering of the EA logo on the feild is pretty stupid as it takes away from the atmosphere! Why bother getting all the licenses if your not even gonna use em?
-Side steps, palms etc were far too in effective... they need to be easier to pull off to and with better and more varied animation.
-kicking and ball physics were again a major problem in this game. Grubbers would sometimes bounce back 15 metres in the direction of your own goal line FFS! This needs to be fixed.
-One of the most thoughtless things HB did. How they could go to the trouble of securing the Lions license and then not make it possible to play AGAINST them was simply ridiculous and idiotic!
-the world league was a joke in my opinion... we need a proper all encompassing franchise system like the one that will be in the upcoming NRL game! I want to be able to play as the Waratahs, then select a Wallabies squad for the pre TN tests and the TN and then go and tour Europe at the end of the year! It should be a 15 year cycle so you can have several RWC campeigns and a shot at the lions too! [/b]
Now please correct the above immediately HB.
