Rugby 2005 was just plain bad. The controls were hard to memorize. The game was even harder. You had to kick the ball through the smallest posts I've ever seen. Then you had to go through a training and I'll warn you now training level #8 is impossible accept if you're real smart. But don't take my word for it, rent the game IF YOU DARE!
This was a fun game to learn and play at first. I learned a lot about the game of Rugby. If you are like me and are looking for a new sports game challenge, then definitely try Rugby. Mastering the game play takes some time and patience, but it is worth it. Where this game falls flat is in it's content. There is no prolonged season mode or career mode, there are just tournaments to play in. I would also have liked a create a team and stadium mode. Any of these additions would have made this game a more worth while purchase. As it is this is a great renter for those who need a change from football, basketball, baseball and soccer games.
