ok first off thanx trev and all the reviewerz for doing there bit to give us a view on things i seriously hope you guys arent licking sword fishes ass(or st helens) because i would leave this forum and you would all die of starvation of my genuis postss! anyways i watched the trailer and i wasnt as as you guys...mainly cause it looks the same as the old one but prettier and smoother,but with knowsley saying it looks the same but feels differently kind of pans things out abit.... i see it running alot faster than the original BUT one thing i am concerned about...which is the MAJOR PROBLEM IN ALL RUGBY GAMEZ(besides the gameplay that is)...IS THE DEFENDING A.I it looks as useless as every other rugby game..and another thing..i saw alot of going from side to side type action in the game which led to big yards being made or try scoring which was THE VERY SAME CASE IN WCR!!..which made it boring and repetitive...please tell me this is not the case i know everything changes when ya playing against another human player but im mainly talking about the a.i here the a.i defence!!!..is there variety when you play against the a.i?...can you charge midfield with your centres hitting gaps? can you use your forwards to hit up around the rucks or pick and goes to make yards up the middle? i dont like this repetitive play of goin side to side with the ocassion grubber kick which is the case with wcr and rugby 06 and 03 and rugby league too.. the defence lines looks very slack especially from scrums where it shud be at its most organised,general play looks lovely and loose... my main thoughts are against the defence as the offence looks lovely and smooth and very loose running..i like it..looks gud but the d-lines dont look very strong anyways as locksley,st helens,knowsley and the other guy...the cool guy..i forgot ya name bro you guys seem to quite happy from first impressions which is very strong in saying that as with the past rugby/rugby league games i never got around to "feeling" excited playing it and have always TRIED to find enjoyment.. ohwell..time will tell i cant wait for this game?...no..i can...ive been fed up with the past efforts of rugby gaming as it doesnt do our great sport any justice at all atleast lomu had withstood the time and technology with the shear genius gameplay and funfactor!! roll on feb.!....i wont be holding my breathe...but as a rugby and video game fan i will be cehcking this game out maybe not with the enthuism i had for the others...coz they sukd sweet!
