Nice Graphics But Bad Game

Paul R. Hanlin Jr., Amazon
8 February 2003
  • Summary: ESPN International Winter Sports 2002 is preety dumb. There's no Olympic Athletics and that takes away alot. I was looking forward to Speed Skating with Apolo Onno but their was this guy that was not even a speed skater. So I moved on to snowboarding and their was that same guy. You don't see Apolo Onno snowboarding in the real Olympics! I tried every single event and their was that sam guy on EVERY event! ESPN could of made different people for each event!

A great game...Lots of fun!

  • Summary: This is one great game. It is lots of fun! It is loads better than Salt Lake City 2002, because it has more events, and the events are much better. This is a challenging game, with competitions that are hard, but can be easier depending on how much you practice the events, and which character you choose. It's hard to do well becasue each character has their different strengths.

Fun, BUT...

Free Pizza, Amazon
2 March 2002
  • Summary: This is a great game! It has ten events, each very fun. However, a create a player mode would be nice. A more realistic olympic compitition would be great. Also, IT NEEDS REAL ATHLETES! Speed Skating 6/10 It's fun, but pressing O and X at various speeds isn't THAT fun. Figure Skating 6/10 You have to press buttons at certain time to get the skater to do tricks. Not really that good. Moguls 9/10 This is really fun. You can perform a ton of tricks of the two ramps.

Enjoyable Olympic competition

Paul R. Hanlin Jr., Amazon
12 February 2002
  • Summary: I enjoy this game and it's not as much button mashing as one would think. Some events are better than others, but there is a good variety of different events, and several competition modes to keep things from getting repetitive. This is a good multiplayer game to compete with your friends, but is also interesting enough to play single player.

Potentially more fun than the official SLC 2002 videogame

Paul R. Hanlin Jr., Amazon
1 November 2001
  • Summary: Consider...ESPN Winter Sports 2002 will have more events than Eidos' Salt Lake 2002 (10 vs. 6), and a better VARIETY of events (downhill, slalom, 4-man bobsled, snowboarding (halfpipe), 90 and 120m ski-jumping, freestyle moguls, 500m speedskating, ladies' figure skating and men's curling) vs. SLC 2002's multiple variations on skiing (men's downhill, women's slalom, men's snowboard parallel GS, women's freestyle aerials, 120m ski jumping and 2-man bobsled).

  • Excerpt: "...a very brief look at Rugby 2004 and didn't really like the player graphics, so when I had the chance to get the ORIGINAL EA Sports Rugby, I took a punt (sic). The very best part of the game is the Training Mode. You should invest a good amount of time in working on your penalties and your conversions (especially). Where EA Sports could improve things, is with regard to the placing of the conversion kicks. I would prefer that you are given an area ...
  • Pros: Gameplay,detail, weather effects
  • Cons: Kicking is very tricky

a good rugby game

  • Excerpt: "...game, it was the only rugby title out on any console apart from Jonah Lomu Rugby for the playstation. Although this game is a big improvement from Jonah Lomu Rugby, it does leave alot to be desired. PLAYABILITY - This game does have quite good playability but however the camera angle does make it very difficult at times. Also, the scrums can take a while to get onto, but with a bit of practice you get used to it. GRAPHICS - I think that the graphics ...

EA Sports Bringing Rugby To The PS2

Andy.mack, Ciao
28 October 2003
  • Excerpt: "When it came to Rugby games on the Playstation, the only one worth mentioning previously was Jonah Lomu Rugby. That is of course until 2001 when those clever guys at EA sports decided it was time for them to get in on the action. As I’m sure many of you are aware I am a big Rugby fan so when I saw this in Game for just £10 on the Ps2 I knew that it was one of those games I just had to buy. Now EA are renowned for their ability to make good sports ...
  • Pros: Good Graphics, Training option is very good, as is the multiplayer
  • Cons: Game play isnt as good as it could have been .  Some computer teams are far too hard to play .

This game is a must for all Rugby fans

22 October 2003
  • Excerpt: "...is a must for all Rugby fans. It has good graphics, simple to play and is great fun. (Especially when you thump your mates) I would also recommend this game to all non-rugby fans that don’t know much about the sport; you can easily and quickly pick up the rules and game play. Though I must warn you, there is a new rugby game out RUGBY 2004, but RUGBY is going cheap, at £15, so it is well worth purchasing. This was the first rugby game since ...
  • Pros: Great fun and can play for ages against your mates
  • Cons: Camera movement and bad referee decisions

  • Excerpt: "I am Rugby player and i am in love with this video game. I don't usually like Sports game because new versions usually just update players and stats and the game play stay the same,this is not the case because there are no other games like it.I would honestly purchase PSX2 purely for this game although there are many good games out there for PSX2.This game is good for people who know and don't know the game of rugby, rules and gameplay skills come ...
  • Pros: Only good rugby game out there
  • Cons: better rugby game coming out
