More EA trash...

Mark P., amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I picked this up new for a couple of quid recently, and I'm almost aggrieved that I spent that much on it. The production quality is - in typical EA shovel-it-out-onto-as-many-platforms-as-possible fashion - absolutely atrocious.

Rugby Redisgned

bugattima..., Ciao
25 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Rugby 2005 is not like playing rugby at all. OK all the rules and general ideas are the same but it doesn't seem as exciting as playing rugby in real life. For instance, tackling is just a click of a button and the selected player will home in on the opposition on the other side of the field.
  • Pros: Lots of different tournaments and game types
  • Cons: Its like playing the same match over again

  • Excerpt: This is a shame really it should be better, there are loads of good football games. Unfortunately, the main focus of the game seems to have been shifted to big hitting tackles, leaving all other elements to wimper in its 'mighty' wake.You can now dump tackle, trip tackle, dive tackle you opponent in...
  • Pros: its rugby
  • Cons: its bad

Best rugby game yet

  • Summary: As far as rugby titles go we have been let down ever since the day of Jonah Lomu Rugby on the PS1. Rugby 2005 is by far the best rugby game yet. Ea have finally got the balance i think. In this version you have playabilty and a depth to the competitions etc.

Penalties???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A R, Amazon
27 April 2005
  • Summary: I just got the game today and I have to say i'm very disappointed. It seems to be impossible to get a penalty awarded in your favour. I have played around 15 matches so far and have not got one single penalty awarded to me. What's more, it's all too easy to give penalties away.

  • Summary: Its no the completed article. Buy definatly a step in the right direction. Sometimes a bit frustrating. And the game does take a while to get used to. However I would definatly recommend it.

Better than Rugby 2004! But still far from perfect!

  • Summary: EA Sports Rugby 2004 was a huge disappointment for me, so I was immensly looking forward to seeing what this would be like, especially with it being released on XBox for the 1st time. The noticeable difference is the impressive graphics engine.
