Summary: I play and follow rugby and when I first saw this game I got pretty excited but after I bought it I was sorely disappointed. First, I was mad that the teams do not consist of the actual rosters, they are just a bunch of made up player, second, the controls are almost too basic, and third, there is absolutely NO customization at all, no team makers and no player makers.
Summary: I havent been dissapointed, me and my friends can play this all the time, i get the my whole team to come over and we have tournaments on it and its just super fun when you got people to play with, sure the graphics dont look perfect but id rather have realistic gameplay than realistic graphics anyday.
Summary: Right on....they brought back the rugby games finally. Yeah its true it looks alot like 08 but i mean that was a good game too.This one has better graphics sound and more game modes and other cool stuff.Im just hoping that it doesnt stop here.
Excerpt: "...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. This weak offering from HB Games is the self-claimed "Official Video Game Of The Rugby World Cup" - Despite only 10 of the 20 available teams being officially licensed, including Australia, and the World Cup hosts New Zealand. The lack of player creation ...
Pros: Multiplayer can be fun | Sound has been improved
Cons: Hardly any content | Glitches | Annoying AI behaviour
Conclusion: At last a rugby game been to long Fifa always have games. looks good, however it plays with major faults. Penalty against you even when the other team had the ball. Many vital flaws. 505 dont give up iron them out and you will have loyal customers.
Conclusion: I am a big rugby fan and have been waiting for a long time for a good rugby game to come out! This is an average game, lazy is right - considering its a international game and not club level they couldnt even be bothered to include the national anthems or the haka. The All Blacks player havent even got the true names wait for Johna Lomu on the 9th September! I will be trading this in!
Conclusion: Terrible game, plays the same as the previous version, very frustrating. Played it on hard level immediately to see if it carries the same glitches as the previous one and guess what.... it does ! Lets you get 2 or 3 try's up and then stops you winning every lineout and scrum (even on your put in)... when you finally do get the ball it knocks on so frequently.
Conclusion: This game has like every other game does points which could be better. However overall gameplay is good, presentation ok. I like the three commentating team idea as well as the official RWC jerseys after you put in the code so no Engeland jersey from 2007 if you choose to play as England. Bad points are not enough licensed teams, you get the USA and Canada license but not Fiji, Samoa, Tonga not to mentioned the two big ones out of the TriNations. Exclusive licenses suck.
