Excerpt: Rugby 08 is a great game for the PS2 and as a PS2 presentation is quite impressive with its graphics. I have previously played rugby games on the PS2 and been fairly unimpressed with the titles out there and that includes EA's previous offerings but thankfully EA appeared to have listened to the...
Pros: Great gameplay, good graphics for PS2 standards, excellent audio and commentary
Cons: Scrums and rucks are difficult to get used to

Summary: I found the game to be enjoyable to play and I haven't got tired of playing it. There are several small things which I think let the game down: -One can ONLY play the 2007 world cup (i.e. starting from 2007 world cups). This is especially frustrating as one can have random a Six Nations.
