It's due out on September 10 and the latest footage looks ... kind of good. Check it out for yourself.
Random bits and pieces of Rugby League Live 3, the latest in the NRL video game series from Big Ant, are starting to appear online ahead of the game's launch next month.
The RLL series hasn't been anything spectacular but after the release of Don Bradman Cricket 14 I'm quietly optimistic that RLL3 might actually be worth a buy.
The latest two videos come courtesy of the GLAustralia YouTube channel, which has managed to get their hands on a pre-release copy of the game. The first video features Shaun Johnson and some Auckland Nines gameplay, while the second is a full match featuring the Storm and a custom all-star team put together by Big Ant.
The animations look a little janky and players seem to move from zero to full speed a little more quickly than they should. But, and I don't want to jinx things too badly, it actually kind of looks fun.
I'm being careful here because the last decent NRL game was the one EA put out in the early 90's and as much as I love Don Bradman Cricket 14, that game still has plenty of problems. But RLL3 could be good. I want to believe. I need to believe.
Also, it helps that I really like the UI. It's minimalist and super clean, the kind of overlay I wish Channel 9 would adopt for their broadcasts.
What do you think? Any expectations for Rugby League Live 3?
