Summary: I never know much about Rugby always NFL or College football, I played EA sports rugby back in the day! But this Jonah Lomu is very good and fun, I told alot of people about it! Great game!!!!!!
Summary: This purchase was for my college son that plays Rugby. The team comes over to play Rugby Challenge when they have spare time and have a great time. Last I heard they were in the middle of an online tournament playing others from around the world. Money well spent.
Summary: As a die hard rugby fun I've owned and played every rugby game EA Sports ever made - and so was devastated when I knew they wouldn't continue the franchise. So when I heard of Rugby Challenge I was thrilled, to say the least, but sadly this game is an insult to us. The worst thing is that when asked why the game is very flawed, the answer from the developers is "sorry, we didn't have the time nor the money to take care of that", even though they waited four years to...
Summary: A must have for any rugby player/fan!!!! I am glad they released this for American format PS3's i play this game for hours. only draw back is the unlicensed international teams and the USA Eagles Squad is completely messed up with the whole starting XV composed of all forwards, but than can be fixed by changing the player roster.
Finally a rugby video game that doesn't feel like a throwback to FIFA '93 on the SNES

Summary: It's fairly difficult to find resources for rugby in the US it seems and being a rookie I was looking for ways to familiarize myself with the flow of the game, general rules and jargon in more engaging methods than books or videos when I wasn't at practice. I found this game after playing a couple other rugby video games on various platforms, but none were as well designed or had controls that were as intuitive as Rugby Challenge.
Summary: This game is fun, but it needs some work on areas to make it great. Here in the US there isn't much in the way of rugby, especially in Texas where football is religion. The graphics are awesome! The mechanics are ok. But... The mechanics still need work. Passing isn't that well done. I've had people open and the ball goes right through them, and that's me playing with the All Blacks. However, the team you're playing against is able to pull off some wicked offloads.
Summary: Rugby Challenge is the best rugby game on the PS3 (and presumably X360). The gameplay is much better than the rival title RWC, and the controls are very natural for players of both Madden or previous PS2 rugby titles. * The passing, both short and long is natural, the rucks, scrums and lineouts are easy to control. * There is some depth of gameplay modes (although online not tried yet).
