Excerpt: "Having always enjoyed the international rugby games and been a fan of the rugby games released way back when by EA Sports I have long now been waiting for a rugby title to come out on the next generation consoles and when I heard that Rugby World Cup 2011 would be released I felt this was the one to prove that rugby games on the consoles truly can work and be big sellers....oh my what a mistaken hope this was. First off I shall start with the positives... Rugby ...
Pros: Official game of world cup
Cons: Poor graphics, poor commentary, feels like a rehash of a PS2 level game
Rugby World Cup 2011 (PS3): The rugby game to end all rugby games but in a good or bad w ...
8 October 2011
Summary: Another big tournament and another big sports game comes our way but finally not just for football! Rugby World Cup 2011 sees the next generation consoles with their first widely available and known title for rugby fans but does it meet the expectations? Positives: The game is the officially licensed product of the tournament and so the teams and statiums are all the official ones.
Pros: Official game of the tournament
Cons: Poor graphics for next generation, poor commentary, feels like a rehash of a PS2 level game
Conclusion: This game has awful graphics and doesn't feel anywhere near as polished as the football equivalents. Artificial intelligence doesn't work very well as the attacking team and defending team are continually out of position. the only good thing i can say is that the speed of play is satisfactory. DONT BUY THIS GAME Wait for jonah lomu's rugby challenge.
Conclusion: Yes it's great to have a rugby game for the PS3 (finally) and the only reason I have given this game a 2 star rating id because you can play online. Let's be honest though HB Studios must be the laziest developer ever because this game is exactly (and i mean 99% exactly) the same as Rugby 08 by EA Sports. There are the same glitches in this game as Rugby 08 and the graphics aren't what I expected from a game like this.
Excerpt: "...may not know, the 2011 Rugby World Cup is just around the corner! Specifically, 10 days away. So, you can imagine my excitement upon hearing the news that an official 2011 Rugby World Cup game was being released? Exactly! Being a keen rugby player (and fan) its been a long time since a rugby game has been released, Rugby 2008 was the last game of the EA sport franchise which as the name suggests, was released in 2008! Imagine my disappointment when ...
Excerpt: Sono un appassionato di videogiochi sportivi e un paio di mesi fa ho voluto provare questo titolo su PS3, avendolo trovato usato in offerta a 15 euro. Quando si parla di videogiochi sportivi si fa riferimento in realtà sempre alle poche solite simulazioni: calcio, formula1 e un po' anche basket e tennis. Ho voluto provare, senza eccessive aspettative, quello che da noi è considerato uno sport "minore", il rugby. L'aggettivo minore dipende solo dal ...
Pros: discreta grafica, si può giocare in 4
Cons: gioco noioso, poche licenze ufficiali, poche modalità di gioco
Excerpt: Ce jeu est tout simplement bâclé. C'est quasiment le même que son prédécesseur ''Rugby 2008''. Les graphismes sont exactement les mêmes alors que 4 ans sépare les deux jeux, le gameplay aussi, enfin presque tout. Donc pour les amateurs de jeu de rugby, ce jeu vous conviendra, ou alors pour les joueurs qui s'y connaissent dans se domaine, le mieux se sera ''Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge'' qui s'annonce beaucoup plus complet.
