Summary: Okay here's the thing HB studios who made this game(that's right it's not EA games) haven't got rights for new zealand rugby therefore all the names and even probably key features like Carter's super kicking ability or Mccaw's rucking skills take a huge hit. But you get almost all the teams that's known in rugby world, Still they rank New Zealand as rank one though. I was a bit disappointed by this as I'm a huge New Zealand fan.
Summary: Rugby World Cup 2011 left a lot to be desired. The last rugby game i purchased was Rugby 08 for PC (which i still play to this day) i recently acquired a PS3 and figured i would give RWC 2011 a try. From the very start i was disappointed to see many of the best features of Rugby 08 were not included in this version. For one, there are no club teams to mix it up.
Conclusion: After waiting for a rugby game for such a long time, Im afraid RWC 2011 is a poor effort that fails to generate any realistic sense of gameplay. Players are poorly designed, not resembling their counterparts, they move like robots at times, with no real direction. Defending can be difficult as the other team can simply run straight past you if your player happens to be facing the wrong way! Do not waste your money on this game and prey EA bring out something soon.
Conclusion: The demo was a bad representation of the full game as you could only play on easy, when you up the difficulty to medium or hard, its a whole new experience, the opposition are much sharper and you really have to be on the ball to win against the good teams, I would also say that its really exciting and most games finish very close.
Excerpt: With ever major sporting event comes a licensed game these days and one of the games that every era of consoles never seems to have got right is the sport of Rugby Union. Could this game be the one that changes all that? With the power of the PS3 behind it could this effort be a game that does justice to the sport? Whilst all the players descend on New Zealand the arm chair hookers amongst us will be heading to the couch to try and take our nations to glory.
Summary: Mon premier jeu de rugby sur console (pas connu la version 2008). Alors, contrairement à ce qui a été dit: RWC 2011 est un bon jeu pour commencer, au diable la qualité des graphismes, le système de jeu (jouabilité, l'IA...) et même si certains noms de joueurs ne correspondent pas, l'intérêt reste de s'éclater et se tester!! Et même détenteur du trophée, des tests-matchs, des tournées et des simulations d'autres compét' (6 Nations, Quadri-Nations,...
