3.0 out of 5 stars A vast improvement on the first version 16 Jun. 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
********* Now a couple of weeks have passed although I stick by my review there is a thread that follows within the "Over pricing surely going to kill the launch" which further details areas of development regarding glitches and the more arcade like feel the game has. **********

I've held off for a few days so I could write a more detailed review and also allow time to get used to the new tactical options etc and see what impact they have on game play.

Graphically there has been a few tweaks but not much change from the original for the complexity of the many animations required, players going into contact, rucks and mauls, scrums etc it does enough to get you feeling your playing a solid game of rugby. Player likeness can be hit and miss some being excellent and others if you squint real hard could possibly pass but again a nice touch to be able to have in a game all the same.

Licensing has been stepped up another notch including the Lions Tour which I am currently playing through on Hard (currently the tour stands at 1-1!) This next point can not count against rugby challenge 2 but they were unable to secure the international licenses and like the first you can transfer the majority of the correct England players into the squad but there is still a lock down on some licenses meaning you can not fully authenticate all the teams (here's to a next gen release with full licensing, the game deserves it which is the only reason I touch on the subject)

Options to tweak how you want the game to play are again included and I have been playing with offloads set to low and this seems to help create a more northern hemisphere style game play, lots of forward work and phase ball. Again you can alter it to suite your game play style which is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best rugby game around.... 4 July 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The key thing with this game is patience, it might seem a bit of a mess to start with but it's definitely worth sticking with it.

I've previously had the Rugby league games made by tru blu and whilst they were good games they had lots of little flaws that spoiled the experience, so i wasn't entirely sure about this game but i've been waiting for a really good rugby game for a long time, and i'm pleased to say this is it.

The passing has been improved from Jonah Lomu Rugby, i bought the first game but was frustrated with the passing and not being able to keep the ball for any length of time. I'm glad to say though that now you can put a good passing game together without too much difficulty and 90% of the time the ball goes where you intend it to!

There are still some flaws, if you go anywhere near the touchline and a defender comes near you either your player will just run out with you having no control, or if a defender touches you again you will go out and have no way of stopping yourself. Occasionally the passing can let you down, drifting forward or going to no one, but it's about you being aware of where your players are as well.

Lineouts are fine, bit of a lottery but it's about getting the 'throwing bar' right in the middle to give yourself a good chance. Scrums you have a very small target on the power bar, if you hit the middle at any point you tend to win the scrum, it works quite well and you can win scrums against the head which is satisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 2 Jan. 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
It's a brilliant game. Don't listen to all the bad reviews. It has a lot if little details but does miss some like diving over the try line. It's easy to play and get the grips of! Although some very frustrating things

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a clue! 4 Nov. 2013
By Ian
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is truly awful, I do wonder if the people that developed it have ever seen a game of Rugby Union. I would urge people to listen to the bad reviews and not the 5 star ones. There are clear errors in the game. Lack of understanding of rules, players consistently run into touch when catching a kick, you can't dive for the try line meaning you have to go over it, but if you run into contact you sometime run over the deadline when in reality you could easily touch down the ball. When a maul is stopped by opposition the SH can easily take the ball (this is not always a reality) There are just too many things for me to mention as i'd be here all day typing.

It is a real shame; FIFA football games have been really good for so many years, but why can't we have a decent rugby title?
I cannot believe they tested this game prior to release and though 'This is great'!

Best rugby game out there at the moment - not that there are many! Game flows much better than the first Rugby Challenge as are the graphics and how the players look. Only things that bug me are the lack of licensed international teams and the fact in career mode you cant manage solely an international team
