Summary: This game is amazing!!! It is so fun trying to unlock different teams, kits, balls and stadiums. Sure the graphics aren't anything special, but for a game of this much fun, you can't have it all. The commentary is a bit repettitive, but with loads of carreer modes, it's well worth the money!! And for even more fun, have a go with your mates!
Excerpt: I found this game very enjoyable with lots to do and complete. I am a rugby player myself and by playing the game from a commentators view, i picked up on rules i never knew before which improves my game. My friend who has never played rugby before also found this and he now understands the game just as well as me! The size and placement of the lines on the pitch is also very accurate and it gives you a sense of how big the pitch is.
Summary: As Many you may have noticed this, this is game is essentially a copy of WCR Rugby which came out just after England won the world cup in rugby. It is exactly the same, same game set up, controls, exactly the same commentary lines, same tactics. To be honest when i rented this game i thought it might be something new as i love rugby games and my copy of wcr rugby (which is now available for a about £3 on Amazon Marketplace) was getting a bit boring, If you want a game...
Summary: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF CR^&%P. 1/ Graphics are cartoony. 2/ Gameplay is to simplified. 3/ Southern hemisphere licences are a joke. 4/ Only international stadium. 5/ On opposition penalty kick to touch the play just stops and the oppostition kicker just stands there with his ball in his hand and you have to quit the game. Can't belive i traded ea 2005 for this!!!!! Can't wait to trade it in for ea 2006!!!
Excerpt: As i am an avid rugby fan i purchased this game with high hopes, only some of which have been met. I have played most rugby games that have been out over the past few years and this is best but still doesn't full meet my expectations. The game has all the key tournaments and players in and also has several mini games and a career mode similar to current football games. For the tournaments you can jump straight into the action as your team of choice.
Pros: Lots of challenges and all the key players and tournaments, it is easy to get into with good playability
Cons: Game play will be too simplistic for some . Graphical glitches .
Summary: good game much better than ea sports rugby 2005 as computer actually gives away penalties.Realistic gameplay with real player names.Good training routines to get you started and used to the gameplay.Only downside lot of button bashing for scrums rucks and mauls, that apart good improvement and lots of fun.
