5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 29 Dec. 2011
I also own the iCruiser IMP1000 and I personally prefer this product in terms of it's portability. It's a bit smaller than the icruiser (the iturbo is just a little bit larger than iphone), it's also thinner and has a better feel to it (the iturbo has a rubbery feel whereas the icruiser is more 'plasticky').

You can charge the iturbo via the USB cable provided, although I had a mains adapter that came with the icruiser, it shouldn't be too difficult to find a mains adapter that is compatible with the iturbo. The iturbo has two differing outputs so you can charge two things at the same time (although one will charge quicker than the other). There is a USB adapter provided although it is better to use the cables that came with the separate products (e.g. ipod usb cable) or to get a multiple USB cable which I have, which has 10 different adapters on one USB cable.

The charge capacity is decent and you should be able to go a whole week's holiday on one charge. It takes around 7 hours to charge to full capacity. All in all it's a good product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best rugby game I've played, 15 Oct. 2011
I think the majority of reviews for this game will be similar; It's the best rugby game available but there are flaws.

Pros:
Easy to learn, difficult to master
Gameplay is fluid
Graphics are great
Although the passing can be a little unpredictable, I do like that you can pick your receiver by holding Lb or Rb and pressing X, Y or A. This is also handy for making clever inside passes.
Tactical kicking is good
Goal kicking is good
Scrums are good, even though wins against the head happen a little more often than they do in real life
Line outs are just about right
The best representation of rucks I've seen in a rugby game
Creation options are good
Licenses for a plethora of club teams

Cons:
Passing is unpredictable for those who are used to EA Sports rugby, simply because you want to pass it out wide all the time rather than picking your pass. Once you're used to it, you'll find that the passing mechanics are pretty good.
Too many offloads (I personally fixed this for AI teams by downloading an unofficial patch with all offloading sliders decreased, you can also do this yourself)
Career mode isn't great
A few gameplay glitches such as play stopping when there's an injury, even if you're running with the ball
With the new patch you cannot alter the unlicensed national teams' squads ie you can't add the real players from the clubs into their unlicensed national team
A few of the stats are a little wayward (NZ are way ahead of the rest as expected from a NZ company making the game)
It's often too easy to break a tackle
No set plays, because of this attacking play usually lacks structure, you cannot choose to pass to a forward

Still, this is the most I've been addicted to a new game for a while, it's enjoyable despite the cons. It's a good base for new rugby games and trust me when I say it's better than RWC 2011.

To improve for a possible second installment:

Reduce offloads
Introduce set plays
'Beefier' defences
Minimise the glitches, including the injury glitch
Add to career mode, ie club transfers. Something similar to World League on EA Sports rugby would suffice
Refine and perfect the passing
Allow us in the UK to edit the squads of unlicensed teams
Different buttons to pass to a forward from a ruck
Don't have all New Zealanders choosing the team and player stats (heh heh)

Overall it's a 4/5.
