  • Summary: Rugby 06 raises the bar from Rugby 2005 and creates a better looking, better sounding, and more fun rugby title. The upgrade to the game by EA Sports, have created an easier to play, more balanced title that brings the fun of rugby from the pitch to your living room. The game has had improvements in every area ranging from visuals, to sound and gameplay. The game does not stray from its roots being a solid rugby game down to the core.

EA SPORTS Rugby 06 Review

  • Excerpt: If there's general rule of thumb relating to sports games, it's that when a company gets a game right, the sequel or yearly update will almost always improve on it in every way, even if it doesn't have the same impact of its predecessor. Regressions are rare, yet gamers must ask themselves whether enough changes are evident to warrant a purchase. At first glance, this appears to be the case with EA Sports Rugby 06.

  • Excerpt: So it may be a game played by men with oddly-shaped balls, but since England won the World Cup ‘ a few million Englishmen ‘remembered’ that they preferred rugby to football, and so the sport’s popularity is in rude health. The games industry has reflected this ‘ as it would ‘ and Electronic Arts have started the yearly sequel train. Rugby 06 is a fairly complete package.

  • Excerpt: Rugby is an odd sport combining the quirk of Aussie rules football, American gridiron football, and the real football (soccer) and making something that is unique in its own way. Personally, I played rugby for 5 years growing up in Canada (it was hockey's off season, deal with it), and it literally took the first year to learn the basic rules, and then at least two more years to fully understand some of the intricacies of the sport.

  • Conclusion: With its plethora of leagues, tournaments, and cups Rugby 06 should be any diehard rugby fans’ dream come true, but in order to reel in the rest of the sports crowd the game had to bring more than authentic rugby teams, and it has done exactly that. The developers added loads of production value to attract mainstream gamers onto the pitch and the tutorial does an excellent job of laying down law of the land to newcomers to the sport.

  • Conclusion: O jogo realiza-se num campo de dimensões idênticas aos campos de futebol e cada equipa é constituída por quinze jogadores (na variante mais conhecida). A bola, que mais parece um melão, é maioritariamente jogada com as mãos, e os jogadores só a podem passar para trás, podendo apenas deslocá-la para a frente com um chuto.
  • Pros: A evolução da sua jogabilidade, A diversidade dos torneios disponíveis
  • Cons: Devia de incluir um tutorial mais completo, Falta um modo Online

  • Conclusion: Pour une fois, EA se sort très bien de cette tentative rugbystique. Graphiquement et techniquement, il surpasse haut la main son adversaire de chez Ubi . Il manque des licences certes et le contenu offert n’est malheureusement pas assez attractif pour séduire. Mais quoi qu’on en dise, il y a du vrai rugby qui nous attend au bout de nos pads.
  • Pros: Réalisation impeccable, Graphiquement superbe, Agréable à jouer
  • Cons: Pas de licences, Lassant car incomplet

  • Excerpt: En plein tournoi des Six-Nations, quoi de mieux que le nouvel opus d'EA Sports pour rester dans le bain de l'ovalie ? Pataugeant quelque peu sur ses derniers opus, l'éditeur compte bien sur cette version 2006 pour se remettre dans le droit chemin et prouver qu'il donne autant de son temps pour le jeu de rugby que pour FIFA. Ce sport aussi noble que spectaculaire et devenant de plus en plus populaire en France aurait-il enfin sa référence ?
