Ok, for all those choosing to buy either Rugby 06 OR Rugby Challenge 2006, don't..... Get BOTH!!!! Those who dismiss this game without playing it are fooling themselves. After playing Rugby 06 extensively, I have to be honest. When my copy of Rugby Challenge came through, I installed and played one game before turning it off. Yes, it's fun, but it couldn't compare to Rugby 06..... or could it? To find out, I've been putting some serious game time in with RC2006, both on my own and with mates, and the answer to that is a resounding YES... IT CAN!!! The gameplay on RC2006 is so fast, fluid and slick and is a total contrast to Rugby 06. I still prefer EA's offering for Single player - It's much more in depth and comprehensive - but Rugby Challenge cannot be beaten for out and out fun. I tried Rugby 06 with a couple of Friends and they're not really into rugby games, so they didn't play more than half a game. They said it was "Too complicated to pick up." While this may be true to those fellas, people like you guys will lap up Rugby 06 and really get your teeth into it. However, it was a different story when RC2006 was booted up. The hi-res graphics of the PC version are superb. It's gorgeous. It's animations are so fluid and slick, and everything controls so well. The thing is, it's VERY easy to pick up and play, but in multiplayer it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to put down! In the old days, about ten of us would sit around a TV playing Jonah Lomu Rugby til dawn. You know what? That happened again last night!!! This time RC2006 was the game in question, and every single one of us LOVED it!!! Although rugby 06 does have more overall, I really cannot see us having so much fun playing that game in multiplayer, cos some of the lads found it hard to pick up and gave up on it. I know it's a long winded post, but I suppose the message is this. Don't dismiss RC2006 as an also ran, because it's one of the very best - and most importantly - FUN rugby games I've ever played.
