What Gamespot Users have to say about Rugby 08

  • User Rating:4.5

    Gameplay is good but the game itself is rushed.

    As a big fan of rugby I was pleased when a newer version of the rugby game came out. Each one so far has been a decent improvement on the last so I had fairly decent expectations for this. However for this game I was mor... Read Full Review

    If you've ever wanted to learn more about the sport, Rugby 08 is the best place to start.

    Outside of the Rugby World Cup and the odd broadcast on Fox Sports World Canada, I never followed Rugby Union or Rugby League action (there are differences: mostly number of players on the pitch and other smaller details... Read Full Review

    Worth a play but not much more.

    Starting this game you are given a lot of promise of a great sports game. Sadly it is just like it's predecessors. Firstly, Passing: The passing system in this, and like in the other versions, is a little slack. Every p... Read Full Review

    OK..

    With the rugby World Cup set to kick off in France in September this year, it was only a matter of time before EA Sports put on the headgear and pumped out another game in its Rugby series. Sure enough, Rugby 08 has land... Read Full Review

    To be completely honest, I expected more!! One nice feature is the new camera angles.

    If you played 2006 , it's no real challenge. I won the world cup, super 14 and Tri-Nations on elite without losing one game. Can't they make it more difficult?? I like that they have entered new star players - Like Joe R... Read Full Review

    Basically a patch which fixes the Rugby 06 bugs and adds new jerseys

    To start this out i'm a huge rugby fan. I've played it since i was a kid and watch it at every chance. Rugby is a complex game and EA Sports has done a pretty decent effort simplifying it down to a playable state. Which ... Read Full Review

    The new EA rugby title will please fans of the sport and as for people who aren't, Don't bother...

    I'm very dissapointed to be honest the only reason I gave this a reasonable rating is because rugby is my favourite sport. This new title offers nothing new at all just afew fixes and some new players to the rosters othe... Read Full Review
