what did HB spend a year doing?

Discussion in 'Rugby Video Games & Apps' started by funksoulbrother, Feb 12, 2006.

  1. the game is just the same as rugby 05 but a bit more responsive and has quick pens and linouts (that dont work very well!!!)

    what did HB spend a year doing - nothing much!

    PS why cant you take a quick tap when you call a mark - they need to get rid of the selection screen full stop for pens and free quicks - make it like lomu where you push a button on the pad to choose what you want to do eg x to kick to touch triangle to run it etc.

    also why cant the scrum half pick t up and run it from a scrum

    stupid stupid stupid

    lomu is still the best

    Haven't played Rugby 06 yet, but I'll post my 2 cents:
    Lomu stinks and hasn't been the best for a long time (not since EA rugby 2001 to be precise).

    Nope. It doesn't even work on 98 I don't think.

    Mate, why don't you stop making threads slating this game, it's pretty clear you don't like it, but how is this thread any different to your one from yesterday? You're entitled to your opinion but there's no need to start a hate campaign against the game... quite a few people think it's good

    you are a muppet mate - this game is the best game out for rugby ever.
  8. Just cause somebody doesn't agree with you doesn't mean that they are any lesser than you.

    This game is very revised version of Rugby 2005. But EA aren't ever going to make a game so good in a series that no-one will buy the next one. It's just EA making their money. It's the same with all EA Sports games - Fifa 2004,2005 and 2006 look the same apart from wee changes.

    Sorry Sanzar, but that just isn't true. To be honest, NO rugby game will EVER last as long as Lomu did. It's STILL played today. You obviously didn't have it first time of release, or you'd agree.

    With you Locks I think JlR will always be the king. Have not played 06 but I hear it is still got no rucking system so that still puts 06 in the shade. But in all fairness i would not be playing JLR in single player anymore. As I have moved on but still living in hope for a rugby game to give me the joy that Lomu did.
  14. i've changed my mind - have played it a bit more and am likeing it more now - on 2 player is very good

    try not to use run fast two much and you win more rucks

    they still need better rucking though

    As a 2 player game, Lomu is definately still king - no question about it. It's up there with PES as a 2 player sports game.

    As a 1 player game, it is dreadful though, and the recent games are a lot more fun on your own than Lomu is. For me though, the 2 player aspect of a game is by FAR the most important part of a sports game, and Lomu is still streets ahead here. The current crop of games can't compete as they are too slow and unresponsive, with game mechanics that are slaved to animations - with Lomu it's fast, responsive, with a huge amount of scope for control, tactics, and competitivness.
