World Championship Rugby PS2 Review
3 June 2010
Excerpt: It may be that recreating the sport of Rugby is a tough old job, or perhaps publishers would rather put their money into the next big footy title, but Rugby titles aren’t exactly overflowing the market right now.
Excerpt: Card games have been around since the dawn of time…okay, they haven’t, but it feels as if they have. In some ways, it only makes sense to toss about 30 different card games into one video game collection, thereby allowing players to compete against virtual opponents in any number of chosen games.
Excerpt: You’d think making a video game about playing cards would be simple—create some digital cards, set up the games and the rules, there you go. You might also think it would be hard to justify buying just a straight up card simulator without a few added bonuses as only video games can do.
Excerpt: Since our Jonny put that kick between the posts to crown England as World Champions, the country has gone rugby crazy and the sport that always used to be the poor brother of soccer has suddenly become incredibly important to a lot of people.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you have to have a rugby game, World Championship Rugby will do just fine. Despite its flaws, there's a fun game to be had here, whether you're playing alone or with a few of your closest friends/rivals.
Conclusion: To sum the game up, it's the Rugby version of Fifa - what EA's rugby games should be - lots of easy to pick up action, with the opportunity to play the game licensed by the England team, nothing too heavy or taxing.
Pros: Fast, easy to pick up gameplay., Good multiplayer games., -
Cons: Ugly, chunky players., A little too arcadey to keep interest of rugby fans., The in-game England team is, better than they really are.
Conclusion: Insgesamt ist das Spiel ganz ordentlich gelungen. Leider ist aber nicht alles Perfekt und so wird man sich vor allem an den etwas schwierigen Einstieg und den eher klobigen Figuren stören. Die Animationen kommen einfach nicht flüssig rüber und so bleibt ein fader Beigeschmack.
Summary: Je continue ma flopée de tests rugbystiques avec une grande satisfaction car 2004 semble être une bonne année pour les rugbeux (par opposition aux footeux) qui se voient gratifiés de deux bons titres…
Pros: La jouabilité, Le seul bon jeu de rugby
Cons: Le public, Les commentaires, L’absence de licences
Excerpt: Jeg kan uden at lyve sige, at dette er det bedste rugby spil på markedet – men det er et tomt udsagn – lidt som at sige, at man vejer mindre end Amin Jensen. Der kommer nemlig så ufattelig få rugby spil, at fans af sporten må tage til takke med hvad de kan få fat i, men heldigvis er World...
