Excerpt: Those who have long awaited a new rugby release have been left disappointed by the company who developed the previous games Rugby 08 and Rugby 06. Although this time without the financial backing of EA Sports.
Pros: Multiplayer can be fun | Sound has been improved
Cons: Hardly any content | Glitches | Annoying AI behaviour
Summary: Firstly, I have never felt the urge to write a review, but I feel I have to warn people what they are buying with this game. After waiting for a while for a decent rugby game to appear for the Xbox 360, I have to say RWC 2011 is a huge disappointment.
Summary: I'd been waiting AGES for a rugby game to appear on the XBOX, and boy what a disappointment when this arrived!. While it boasts up to date teams (except NZ and Australia) and good commentary. The main problems are the graphics and the gameplay.
Summary: good points: easy to pick up and play nice layout of menus easy to control the ball at set plays (for example it shows you what buttons to press when kicking for touch or putting the ball into the scrum) Bad points: players always seem to be not facing the cameras graphics are not of the greatest...
Summary: This game is exactly the same as Rugby 08 this is exactly it's downfall, it's pretty much a straight port of a PS2 game onto this new gen console. No improvement in graphics, less teams as it's the world cup licensed game.
Summary: Having read other people's comments and having gone through the disappointment 4 years ago when we all realized that Rugby 2008 was little more than a roster-update of Rugby 2006 I wasn't really expecting much from this edition. However I was pleasantly surprised by the gameplay itself.
