Summary: I saw all reviews before me were all 10's so i assumed the game would be good. Oh boy was I wrong. First of all there is no creativity. I thought there would be a lot of features because there is a lot involved in rugby. Wrong! I played 5 games an immediatly threw the game in the trash because I did not feel it was worth returning with the chance of someone else buying it. All you can really do is pass and kick. Thats it. The movement is downright awful.
Dreadful. Great graphics and feel. Awful programming.

Summary: The programming for the players is simply awful, they run about aimlessly, not knowing there position or how to play rugby. Constantly getting Props and Locks on the wing and wings rutting it out in the centre field. Turned over a ball in my 22, passed to what should have been fly-half, was hooker. therefore clearing kick went a "tad" wayward. (due to player stats). Next time it happened it was a Prop there.
Summary: When I saw this was being released, I harkened back to the many happy hours spent playing the original Lomu on my PC. As the 2 Bill's (Beaumont and McLaren RIP) quipped about maternity wards, moles and cattle yards, impossibly quick wingers, back row's with the ability to hand off 15 players and stand-offs with 90 yard boots brought tremdous fun to Rugby fans. Remember the team of 15 Lomu's?! Superb! That game was far from a Rugby purists idea of a 'simulation'.
Summary: This is quite frankly one of the worst rugby games I have ever played, I've been looking forward to a rugby game for years. I played rugby 06 on the PS2 and that was a pretty decent game, I also played the Rugby World Cup 2011 game on the xbox. The rugby 2011 game may be really easy but it is miles better and much more accurate than this one.
Summary: I cannot imagine that the developers of this game have ever actually seen or played a game of rugby so far removed is the experience of playing this. Graphics are mediocre for this day and age and the game play is woeful.
