Awesome. While I didn't even bother with RLL 1, this one sounds a lot better. There is a lot more detail and some of the game play footage looks really promising. Will definitely go and pre-order now!
@mezz85 Getting the Blues or Maroon Edition? (Just curious =P)
I had to pre-order both because though I'm a blues fan through and through, my partner is a Queenslander.
@Lhomity Maroons editions for me :) and on Xbox for me as well. Only 3 weeks from today till release!
Not expecting this to be great, given the history of Rugby League games, but I've got it pre-ordered and will spend many hours playing anyway.
South Sydney might not make it to the grand final this year, but with this game, I can make Russell Crowe proud.
