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. The menus are superficially similar to other EA sports games, but subtly different enough to be annoying.

Rugby Redisgned

  • 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

  • Summary: i was really looking forward to this game, due to the grand slam success of wales and the british lions tour. i found this game very limited firstly there is a lack of teams availible certain english teams are missing. there is a lack of league modes as you can only play european teams in the european competition, there is no option to play local leagues.

  • 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 an over exaggerated manner, all resulting in the same shambles.
  • Pros: its rugby
  • Cons: its bad

Rugby fans will love this

  • Summary: This is a brilliant rugby game if you ever liked the old PS 1 game then you'll love this. The graphics a good with players actually looking like there real life counterparts. The gameplay is good once you play a few games as it can be a bit anoying to start passing the ball one too far.

Best rugby game yet

Mr. R. Eaglesham "rossyhead", amazon.co.uk
18 April 2005
  • 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. In the previous 2 titles one or the other was missing! The only problems with the game are the penalties and the repetitivness.
