Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge
24 October 2011
Conclusion: Achievements: The achievements for this game are very easy apart from the two online ones which require you to play 50 online games which will take some time. But all in all this is a fairly easy 1000g. All in all if you’re a fan of rugby you should check this out and if you’re a rugby game veteran you should already have this game but if you don’t you need to get it!
Summary: Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge is a good rugby game all round that could use some more work in graphics and other little things. The gameplay is quite good and it put forth an enjoyable experience. Hopefully, continued expansion of the game series will see improvement over time. I will play this one off and on until the next arrives.
Conclusion: Even though my knowledge of rugby was extremely limited before playing Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge, I now understand why this sport is so popular.

Though it’s not perfect, Rugby Challenge is a solid sports title that both longtime fans and newcomers can appreciate.

The graphics and animations are fantastic, and the gameplay - after some getting used to - makes for some of the most exciting and realistic rugby experiences available off the field. While the lack of licenses and a good few design problems hinder Rugby Challenge from being the rugby game we've all been waiting for, the massive amount of content, impressive player editor,...
Pros: Simulated rugby at its best, Graphics and animations, Longevity
Cons: No SA licensing, Design and flow problems, Terrible Commentary
