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.
Summary: I was a bit disappointed in this game. It doesn't offer the slick gameplay that you may have become familiar with in games from EA. There are too many unnecessary pauses while you wait for players to take penalties, and the players don't run very fast generally.
Summary: Ok, the game play is nice and the added features of club teams etc is welcome but come on. The PS2 was billed as the mutts nuts as far as graphic capability goes and this game falls well short.
Summary: Like perhaps most of the country, during the heat, and the impending victory of the World Cup this year, I found myself needing to buy the appropraite EA Sports Title. It wasn't only because of this fact you understand, I was interested as to how EA would manage to portray a rugby game, especially...
Summary: At first this game seems as though it's going to be stupidly difficult(you get your first scrum as England and lose the feed against Wales, nota promising start) but after a few games you just realise that rather thanthinking with a rugby brain you just have to learn the easy pitfalls inthis game.
Summary: I couldn't wait to start the game that would contain everything one could ask for - the Super 12 and still more. But geez what a disappointment. I thought EA Sports would better thier last attempt at a rugby game and they did, to some degree.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this game having been rather disappointed with the first installment 2 years ago. I have to say I am overwhelmingly disappointed and frustrated. I appreciate that making a playable rugby sim is going to be harder than football, basketball, ice hockey etc, but you only...
Summary: It's good that EA are still making Rugby games, although admittedly this may be due more to the World Cup than any firm commitment to the sport. However, this game simply isn't good enough. The graphics are fairly basic but its the gameplay that really disappoints.
