Excerpt: Slowly but surely, the Rugby franchise is catching up with the standards of other EA Sports games. Though it isn’t the best looking EA game out there, it does have its moments. What Rugby 2005 is lacking is polish. The models, textures, and animations all look great, but are hindered by some glitches, mainly when dealing with animations and shadows.
Conclusion: One of the most peculiar aspects of rugby is the preponderance of kicking. Offensive and defensive punts abound, but there are also grubber kicks (short boots designed to quickly evade defenders as you run upfield), kickoffs, drop goal kicks (essentially running field goal attempts), and up-and-under kicks (where an offensive player kicks the ball high into the air, hoping a teammate catches it when it comes to and then continues upfield).
Pros: Game is fast-paced, and sport translates to games, Real-life rugby teams abound, Controls reward patience.
Cons: Could use a more comprehensive introduction to rugby, Some suspect defensive AI, In-game commentary is boring, Controls demand patience.
