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.
Summary: After waiting for this game i was somewhat surprised and a little disappointed. The game itself is a must for all rugby fans. It has great gameplay utilising the controllers to there best. Unfortunately however there are a few down sides. The lack of club teams and leagues being the biggest.
Summary: Well this is an great game but in my view is not better than 'Madden 2001'.This game sheds some hope on England winning the world cup when you hand of Johna Lomu and score under the posts.Being a Rugby player myself it's a welcome site when you get home from school and sit down and batter Australia...
Summary: Ok. This is a good game. The tackles are crisp, with fairly good animations for scrums, lineouts and rucks. Which leads us to the game's biggest fault. The rucks aren't proper rucks! They are a sort of random scrums, with no-one in set positions, and everyone just pushing forwards.
Summary: Rugby for the PS2 is a superb game if all you are interested in is the gameplay. The rucks, mauls, scrums and lineouts are excellent and although you need to spend the first 1/2 hour getting used to the controls you will find a highly playable and realistic game of rugby.
Summary: I have been waiting for a great game to come out on the PS2 since I first got the machine back in November 2000. So far only SSX has enthralled me (and what a game that is!). Now, being a Rugby fan I decided to go for EA Rugby. I am not disappointed.
Summary: To be honest rugby games have been few and far between on the Playstation. We have waited too long for this to come. From the point of view of a player of rugby this game is quite accurate. Rugby is a much more complicated game than football so there are more controls to work out.
Summary: This is a must buy for all Rugby fans. The gameplay is brilliant and the features are more realistic than Jonah Lomu. Rucking and mauling is a lot more realistic and its is worth buying for the hits alone.
Summary: When it comes to rugby games on the Playstation you are not exactly spolit for choice, but having played Jonah Lomu Rugby on PS1 (which was quite good) I found EA rugby to be a marked improvement.
