So after playing some more, I'm still not satisfied with the graphics. I'm not sure if this is still a hardware shortfall or the game itself. It's playable, and even looks quite good in close up scenes (like a try celebration cut scene) but when actually playing the game it doesn't look great as Gavinn has posted above.
Sill far too many breakdown turnovers, but much better than RC3. I also find the game seems to be very defensive which I prefer but it's probably too defensive, I'm getting really low scores like 17-7 in 20 minute matches and I'm seldom challenged by the AI on defense however breaking down the AI defense is a lot harder than RC3. Has anyone tweaked with sliders?
There also seems to be a fatigue glitch, my whole pack is 100% fatigued by the end of a match - including subs, I switched the cpu team and they aren't fatigued much at all. Anyone else have this issue? I've had to turn fatigue off.
