Excerpt: This game had such good potential to be a decent rugby simulation but it has quite a few flaws that let it down significantly. Control and graphically wise the game is pretty good, with a decent number of defensive and attacking options when you need them.
Excerpt: I can't say I am as positive about this game as the other two reviewers. I actually think that the gameplay is better on Jonah Lomu because certain things feel more realistic. As for the content of this game there are no real descriptions needed- its just a rugby game.

Excerpt: This Rugby game is one of the best , maybe because there are not many rugby games for the playstation but this game certainly gives you a lot. Numerous tournaments which allows me to go my beloved Leicester Tigers and win the European Trophy mainly through the boot of Andy Goode.
Excerpt: Rugby 2004 is fun. It's fun if you're a newbie, and fun after you know a little bit about the sport. Although I played a bit of both of EA's other rugby efforts, I didn't understand the sport at all outside of the video games.
Excerpt: I real wasnt a lover of league game of rugby but when the national team was playing (ENGLAND),I'd always watch it . So when "ENGLAND" won the world cup I got exceited ,and went and bought the RUGBY 2004 game,its got all you need to know about rugby.
Excerpt: For all the ardent rugby fans around here I bet you couldnt wait for a rugby game. Well keep waiting, unless you go for Rugby 2005 (a slight improvement) The players dont look anything like the real thing Once you get good at it it gets very boring, there is very little depth to it Tackling is fake...
Excerpt: yet again EA Sports have created another enjoyable game, diferent from the fifa series and aimed at thos die hard rugby fans, you know who you are. Well this is probably the closest you will get to playing rugby with top international players like 'jonny wilkinson' but its as good as the real thing.
