When games are developed for Australian-specific sports, like AFL or Rugby League, I always sort of expect there to be a drop in quality compared to the big EA releases like FIFA or Madden — but you know what? Rugby League Live 2 actually looks really, really good.
I’m barely a fan of Rugby League (go The Eels… I guess) but it seems that, this generation, fans of sports like AFL, Cricket and Rugby League haven’t been served as well as they have in previous generations. And this game is a homegrown one, so I’m very impressed with how well it’s all come together.
The game is set for a 2012 release. More specifics as we get them.
