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.

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

knightrid..., Ciao
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

Great potential - failure to deliver

ljuk, Ciao
3 March 2003
  • Excerpt: "This game was long awaited on the arrival of the PS2. However it seems not to deliver its full potential. As typical of EA sports games it has great graphics and the addition of the voice of the great Bill McLaren was essential. It has an inventory of 600 players and 4 major competitions. It is strong in the playing of each individual game, with reliance on being accurate regarding players, pitches and competitions. Although now slightly dated in ...
  • Pros: Only game of its kind
  • Cons: limited statistics

The Game for Rugby Fans

Royston1, Ciao
15 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "If your a real rugby fan with some knowledge of the game, then Rugby 2001 is for you. I think it is the most enjoyable and in depth rugby game on the market, it's realistic, tactically accurate and has plenty of variety. It mirrors many of the current football computer games on the market. Pick an international rugby team and then play either a friendly game or enter a knockout competition. During the course of the game players can become injured ...
  • Pros: It's realistic, has a superb two player option, the graphics and sound effects are absolutely superb
  • Cons: Only of interest to rugby fans

Un bon jeu de rugby

Amazon
10 March 2007
  • Summary: Enfin un vrai jeu de rugby comparable en intérêt aux meilleurs jeux de football! L'action est parfois un peu confuse et il faut reconnaître que la maniabilité est un peu moins instinctive qu'avec un jeu de foot. Mais une fois les commandes maîtrisées, on s'amuse comme un fou. L'animation des rugbymen est géniale. Côté graphismes, ça reste acceptable, même si on peut faire beaucoup mieux sur une Play 2. C'est en tout, et de loin, le meilleur jeu du genre auquel j'ai joué.
