Summary: Whilst this is certainly better than nothing it does play quite well if a little simplistically at times. A lack of detail seems to be it's main failing e.g. no edit function to alter players or bonus sections such as unlocking classic teams or Barbarians by winning certain tournaments.
Summary: If you like rugby and want to play rugby on a computer, then this is your only choice!! However where is the graphics that are available on games like madden or GT3. The graphics were appaling and the game just didin't flow. You made a pass then got involved in a maul, pass, maul, pass, maul etc...
Summary: If you're a rugby fan and don't own Jonah Lomu rugby, then buy that and not this! This game is typical of an EA early attempt - the graphics are good, the options are there, but the playability is awful.
Summary: So near and yet so far. As a huge rugby fan this was probably the game I was looking forward to the most. I imagined to myself a game with Jonah Lomu's gameplay and fantastic graphics. Instead I get a bunch of bandy legged pub players and a game more frustrating than fun.
Summary: 1) Prop forwards very rarely hoist inch perfect up and unders, race 30 metres and then out jump full backs like Chris Latham. 2) Offside is NOT passing the ball backwards to a player who has just returned from being in front of you at the last breakdown.
Summary: With other sport releases such as FIFA 2001, NFL 2001, and SSX to name but a few, it comes as big a surprise that there is little in the way of improvement over the lacklustre PC version of this game.
