I am actually quite surprised that nobody has a review of this game yet. By far it is the best (and only) rugby game that i have played. besides the older versions of the game. I play this game for hours at a time getting pulled into the game deeper every time. I love it and recommend it to anyone who has the time to listen. The games controls are a bit confusing at first but when you get used to them, prepare for the best gaming experience of your life. I honestly prefer shooting games and RPG's, but this was better than any madden or FIFA game that i have ever played before. It is also better than that NBA crap that everyone likes so very much. So if you are a sports fan that hasn't ever thought of playing rugby or a rugby game before then try it out, and im sure that you will love this game as much as i do.
Great Rugby Game
Rugby 08 is great in general. The controls are easy once you get use to them but tutorial helps a lot. The graphics are just like any madden for the ps2. Great game to bad this is the last in the series.
