Summary: I don't consider myself much of a sports fan in any stretch of the imagination what so ever, yet when I started watching Rugby on Universal Sports I seemed to be strangely drawn to it. Normally, I go for role playing, simulator and action adventure games like Subterrania and Ecco The Dolphin etc. Just for the heck of it I went on Amazon to see if a video game existed that captured the pace and realism of Rugby and I found this one at a very good price.
Summary: I bought Rugby 2005 today and i've played it non stop as it is awesome. It has lots of game modes such as practice,Super 12,Tri Nations,Six Nations, Ten Nations which is the Six & Tri Nations joined together and Argentina. The create a player mode is very good and you can put lots of detail in making your player or making any player you see fit to make from the past.
Summary: THIS IS THE REAL DEAL!!! If you have a friend, loved one, associate or even know a random associate who is at all interested in Rugby, you owe it them and humanity to encourage them to get this game. Heck, buy it for them. For those who have played every other sport title and are looking for a unique sports sim to conquer, prepare for hours of enjoyment and challenge when you pick up Rugby 2005.
Summary: As someone who has owned every so-called rugby game ever released, I have to say that EA has surpassed their own brilliance and given us the first rugby sim which captures the intensity and continuity of the sport. I had begun to doubt that it was possible to bring this complex sport to a gaming format but I was in owe when I saw the playability and realism that this game has to offer.
Summary: As a passionate rugby supporter and player, this version was a huge improvemnt on the version released in 2004. It is extremely challenging. The graphics are also very good and it is obvious that time has been put into recreating world famous stadiums to the very last detail, as well as the teams around today. I definately recommend this game for any person, interested in this sport.
Summary: My name is John Pa'a and Iam 13 and I go to Rutherford Intermediate school. I think Rugby 2005 is the best because you can Choose the International countries and create a player to represent your team. I really enjoyed reading your reviews and will quote your comments in my speech to persuade kids at my school to play Rugby 2005.
Summary: The WORLD'S BEST rugby game. such a big step further than any other rugby game. It's as if you're playing the real game (only less painful). I play rugby at outside half for my county and it makes you think exactly the same way 10 out of 10 .perfect! YOU, don't just sit there and read my review.GO AND BUY IT!!!!
Summary: This is another great sports game that's just come out, Rugby 2005 is an updated version of the last one, Rugby 2004. This is a brilliant game, and I think the graphics, gameplay and sounds are fantastic. I think Rugby is a brilliant sport, but even better on Playstation 2, EA GAMES have made a stunning game, for all rugby fans to enjoy, and not forgeting, sport fans. It has all the international teams, and loads of players and teams including staduims and many more.
