Summary: At last, the run of mediocre rugby games has come to an end. Significant progress was made with Rugby 05 but it still fell short of what it could and should have been. Rugby 06 is different from other rugby games in that the computer actually makes mistakes i.e. knock on's and penalties.
Summary: Still the best rugby game made to date... Very playable even nearly 10 years later. once you master the fairly complex controls it offers a huge amount of fun. Just wish modern versions had this kind of lasting gameplay.
Summary: Its a good game, not great but good. The new quick throws, penailties and hight tackles are great and open up new tactics for you in the game. However i think the player ratings are a little off as some great internationals are given some of the lowest ratings i've seen.
Rugby 06, a game that will keep you playing for months!

Summary: Gone are the days of EA sports Rugby 04 and Rugby 05! Rugby 06 is the closest that you can get to being on the pitch yourself! in previous versions, the computer AI was woeful and matches could be won with ease by any team on the hardest difficulty. Rugby 06 has corrected this.
Summary: What a Six Nations series! Surprises in every match, a close finish for the champions, and teams performing contrary to expectation. Just Like EA Sport's Rugby 06. It was in the midst of the Six Nations fervour that I ordered this game, and while I was waiting had a go of Rugby 2005.
