1.0 out of 5 stars Missed the kick-off 15 Nov. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Sadly a very poor effort here.

I'd been wanting a new rugby game for ages and usually I stick to the Union games. I thought I'd try something new with this and was not only dissapointed but a little bit shocked too.

The graphics are poor, nothing better than a Playstation 2 game. It definately looked like something from the last generation of consoles. I could understand a sacrifice in looks had it meant more focus was put on gameplay. Unfortunately, thats not the case. This plays worse than any other rugby game I've ever played.

When running with the ball and attempting a a pass the receiver always stops to make the catch then starts running again. This is the fundamental flaw in the game. It doesn't run smoothly at all.

Its not just the running, catching which lets it down. Other basic actions such as passing can go flakey at times. Passing has a late response and often when you first intend to pass and hit the button it takes a few seconds to execute the move. By this time an opposing player has come in and taken an interception. This really tested my patience.

The difficulty settings and AI are just mesmerising. The 'Easy' setting is like playing aginst ivnvisible opponents who are sluggish and constantly make errors. In contrast the medium setting is so difficult and really all that happens is the game gives you errors which are not your fault, the opposition are quicker and the re-set of the tackle by the opposition is so quick it makes you wonder why as a human player you can't do the same...

One unforgiveable howler they've made is having no tutorial or training function. This game was a fantastic opportunity to gain a strong foothold in the rugby gaming race.

3.0 out of 5 stars hmmmmmmm.....still not sure..... 26 Dec. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My fiancee bought me this game shortly after it came out but unkindly wouldn't let me have it until christmas. So i played it yesterday for the first time and today too. I agree with some of the things from other reviews but i will tell you what i think....

Firstly i was a bit gutted as the game seems americanised and i am guessing that it was developed there as for instance the drop goal is called a field goal. If they are going a Rugby League going then they should at least get the basics right..

I played on easy and drew the first couple of games 0-0, i found the tackling easy but just couldn't get past their defence either. After getting to grips with the controls i then started to score try's and get the kick's and getting points on the board and then started winning every game and found it easy, so then today i switched to medium and played with England against Scotland and lost 13-12, then played Ireland and lost 18-0. The computer is better at defending so much so that i only broke through 2 or 3 times but got tracked down and tackled even with my quickest player. Also The computer Attack is a lot better. I then played Australia and could not do anything against them, I could not make any sort of break into their defence and every time they got the ball they just sprinted away with me having NO CHANCE of catching them on most occasions which frustrated a little.

This game in my opinion in my short experience however is fun whilst playing 2 players, great infact. Whilst the one player is a little dissapointing but i will not give up and will keep trying on medium. it doesn't help that i keep pressing the wrong button to tackle but i will keep going.

in conclusion overall it is a good but not great game which i feel is better as a party game with not much experience but i will keep trying at 1 player medium until i succeed or get bored

1.0 out of 5 stars awful 9 Nov. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
simply aweful
graphically appauling, gameplay is appauling,even the controls are awful.
i would avoid buying this game.
i think somebody should make a union game like rugby 08 as this would appeal to so many people.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good game with bad grahics 17 Dec. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
When i bought this game i expected to get a game with all the latests technology. Unfortunately i was wrong, although it is a good game it has seem to of had a back step towards more xbox and ps2 graphics. However i find the game quite enjoyable even though the graphics arn't that good.

3.0 out of 5 stars It helps if youre a Rugby League fan 14 Feb. 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a fan of Rugby League since I was a kid, so naturally any of the games would hold my attention. Rugby League 1 and 2 both had their flaws but they were fun enough. Going forward is simple enough on this, but its unbelievably annoying sometimes on defense. The lack of ability to edit squads is annoying as is a lack of a franchise mode, and in fact, the number of teams is frustrating as hell compared to what Wii players got with Rugby League 3. Overall, I feel like they owe us free DLC, but thats never going to happen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Embarrasing 27 Dec. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
As a rugby league fan through and through I've been waiting for such a game on the next gen consoles for what seems like forever,
how incredibly disappointed I am.
The gameplay is terrible, the graphics look like a 4 year old has created them and the AI is rediculous.

For your own good no matter how big a rugby fan you are stay well away!

As a true rugby fan I bought this game hoping, thinking I could maybe adopt it under my arm, place it for lots and lots or hours and enjoy it with all my friends.
The truth is the AI is too strong, interceptions are too frequent and it is impossible to put together some good phases of play. Save your money!
