Summary: I would prefer my money back!! You need a masters degree to play is game. Players have line comming from the ground, when has playing a game of rugby been so hard. Dont be surprised if you chuck the game out the window after is crashes on you every 10mins.
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.
Summary: Having just recently got back into rugby in the past year,I started wondering if there would be any good rugby computer games.I enquired and Rugby 2004 was the newest.When i played on the game i was instantly disappointed.There always seems to be hype surrounding EA sports games, but this has been...
Summary: Not bad but not great either. The graphics are pretty poor but from a distance don't look too bad. The gameplay is good and simple to use. After playing on this game for a day or so it will become incredibley easy and even hard mode is not that challenging.
Summary: Really enjoy some parts of the game, but I am astounded by some of the basic errors and gliches that I have found. There is little doubt that the EA team responsible for this game took a few weeks off in the Summer and then realised the World Cup was a few weeks away.
Summary: After watching England win the world cup i desperately wanted to get this game. However when i got the game i was surprised to see that it was not quite what i had expected. Here's a list of some good points and bad points.
Summary: 1) On the hard level it is impossible to retain possession more than a few phases. Is quite infuriating. 2) Impossible to chase kicks with non-offside players. 3) Why do players have to stop completely to kick? Grubbering and chip and chase are not feasible in this game.
Summary: Let's start with the bad. Woeful graphics, commentary is poor and takes ages to load. With the graphics - it's barely better than PS1. There's some stupid things like when you're over the try line and you dive, you get tackled and stand up and then fall down and score. Now for the good.
Summary: I give this game three stars primarily for effort. If EA had thrown the same resources at Rugby 2004 as Madden or FIFA this game could have been awesome, however they did not and it shows in the average graphics (you will not recognise Wilkinson), occasional game slow down and unresponsiveness of...
Summary: This is a pretty good game - It may well be the best rugby game out there, but sadly the game play itself has no middle ground. It is either far too easy or just plain impossible (for me anyhow).
