    3) locks the R2005 player; why did you not score that try against England (37mb video), kicking while under the posts - what were ye thinkin?

    [​IMG] Erm.... I actually thought I was playing NRL and pushed SQUARE instead of X to dive! Instead, and embarrassingly caught on video, I put a bomb up... Good job you couldn't hear what words I used when that happened!!!! [​IMG] [/quote]
    now... forgive me if I'm wrong... and I don't wanna ask too many questions (waiting for the new vid to download before I head to bed!)... but you mentioned in the preview in regards to kicking controls that all 4 action buttons (tri, sqr, O, X) give you a kicking option...

    in the quote above you've also mentioned that you dive to score a try using X, and also mention that you can take a ball from a scrum/ruck without passing by holding X... but would this not initiate one of the kicks? - is there some sort of modifier button to be held at the same time (e.g. L2) that offers you a different action when pressing X?

    I apologise if this is a dumbass question (and the more I reread it the more dumb it sounds) but I just can't figure it out in my head... I've blotted the previous games efforts at controls out of my head so I can no longer remem what they used even!!!

    (getting R2001 again to practice with tho)

    - cheers

    - cheers again, not my style of play either but may be an option worth using if I decide to play the full game with a team with mediocre backs and a strong pack (Romania to the World Cup anyone?) would offer extre "depth" and strategy just

    - now that is great news... I would have been happy with a 6, excited with 7, ecstatic with an 8, a 9... anything else is just silver lining, come on march get here now!

    right I'm off to my pit for the night... oiche mhaith!

    Well Time for me to turn in for the night!

    Goodnight all

    But I'm sure they'll be plenty of stuff here for you tomorrow.

    Like scrums.

    Your newest video won't play properly on my computer, so have you had any scrums? And how do they work (is it fluid)? I'm guessing there's not much chance to steal a scrum with the likes of Eng v Aus . . .

    Can u offload a short pass from a ruck to an awaiting forward to smash it over the advantage line?

    And how easy is it to return a kick back with the fullback say a two on one can you be like cullen and step your way out of trouble?

    No offense locks but could it be that you are not that bothered by the rucks because of your, favortism to league. A true union player likes to do some battle in the rucks, otherwise it is to similar to league, I do enjoy league aswell but we got sidhe for that right. [​IMG] Give us some more ruck control please at least some form of a push , like what shows up for the mauls, well thanks for the coverage locks, you are doing it again a year later, thanks.
    Cheers and Salu
    PS. Can it be that it is on easy difficult in the demo and they are made more simple??? The Rucks.

    I do hope that the weather have an affect on gameplay (like in fifa 2005)
  10. ok ima jonah freak...i loved the game... smooth is it compared to lomu like runnin in open play and opening the outside backs?
    2.whats the defensive lines like both for user controlled and ai? fast are the players?are they accurate?...are the forwards super slow like in wcr?...whatta bout the wingers tuquri/sailor are they portrayed accurately and can the forwards kick like backs like in wcr..?

    cheers [​IMG]

    Well in the 37mb vid, you can clearly see backs are faster than forwards (mortlocks break right at the end).

    Good to see the Aussie Defence from the 27Mb footage.

    Anyways, i wanna see Matt Giteau's Bomb in Tiquiri's side to score the try.

    lox, can you list all the setplays you've come across in the demo and what situations are needed to call them. Thanks

    My main worry is the quality of the AI's attack.

    Usually increasing the difficulty level in rugby games simply results in the defensive getting better - would be good to play a game and expect to have points scored against.

    I realise you only played the demo, presumably on Normal - but did the AI actually use overlaps / make breaks etc ?

    Lox , is the gameplay more like a real game of union where you bash it up for 2 or 3 phases etc then spin it wide, unlike R2004 , and are the forwards able to cover unlike WCR where they are all about as fast as big Jase Leonard ?? Also is the scrum nice and simple without any button bashing ? Lastly are the player animation OK ?

    Locks mate, do you know if they will have correct feild markings this time around? I know in the NH feild markings are rare, but in the Super 12, TriNations etc we have them in spades and not having them would take away from the realism...

    You could do that in R2004.
  18. havent seen the vid....wasting my time gonna buy it anywayz just want to know wat to expect and what not expecting a better game then lomu,wcr,sjrl az what lox has said

    umosay Guest

    lol, they still have the 'going down on the ball' animation, but only for rucks! still looks odd

    Hi Locksley.

    How good are the hand offs and are they more affective with stronger players
  21. umosay

    umosay Guest

    Yes, in his preview he said the stronger players have better fends.
