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. now you must use a whole range of tactics to get across the opposition game line, such as offensive kicking for touch, mauls, side steps, (and even the occasional foul).
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. Quick line-outs and penalties are a stroke of genious and add realism, depth and playability to the game.
