    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best rugby game right now, but with some flaws Overall, I think that Rugby Challenge is currently the best rugby game there is to buy. It has a vast variety of tournaments to choose to play in and it has licensing to an enormous amount of clubs. Although internationally it only has licensing to New Zealand, Australia, and USA which is a let down but due to the player customization you are able to go into the customization screen and rename the players on the national teams to their real names. I can't be bothered to rename them all so I just renamed my favorite players from certain countries. The graphics are nice and the commentary is good but it could be better. The commentators are alright but it feels as if they have the commentation abilities of that of 2005 sports games. My biggest con about this game however is the actual gameplay. Rucks, line outs, scrums, and the kicking is all done in a very creative and nice way but the passing is very wierd at points. Your opponents are able to go on massive offloading sprees with no way to intercept the ball. This can become very frustrating. The user passing also takes a lot of time and practice to master because you will often times find your pass going to ground when it seemed like such an easy pass. I would say that you should only get this game if you are desperate for a rugby video game. If not, don't waste your money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Best Rugby Game It is slim pickings for us rugby fans. I have to say this game is far superior to any ofther rugby game I have played. The controls are great. The only things I would change is that I would add a mode where you control one player's career and also some of the animations are buggy. Besides that, this game will keep you busy for days. GO USA!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful I saw all reviews before me were all 10's so i assumed the game would be good. Oh boy was I wrong. First of all there is no creativity. I thought there would be a lot of features because there is a lot involved in rugby. Wrong! I played 5 games an immediatly threw the game in the trash because I did not feel it was worth returning with the chance of someone else buying it. All you can really do is pass and kick. Thats it. The movement is downright awful. Pretty much everything that could go wrong went wrong!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO much better than Rugby World Cup 2011 I bought both RWC'11 and JLRC. RC makes RWC look like an arcade game. You can tell the developers of RC are big fans of rugby and put a lot of effort and love into this game. So many details, stunning graphics. The only thing missing are national licenses. I mean you get All Blacks, Wallabies and Eagles, plus you can play national teams, but it's awkward hearing the commentators say the fake names for other national team players. But really - those minor details pale in comparison to the awesomeness of this game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweeeeeeeeeet! I am absolutely thrilled that I waited and bought this game as opposed to Rugby World Cup 2011. This game is much better, has way more teams and is a lot deeper than I thought it would be. I will be playing this for quite some time. Rugby WC 2011 who?
