    I found the first review of Rugby 08 on the PS2. It by an American site, where they reviewer doesn't know much about Rugby. He does give it a good score though.

    To find out what he had to say & his rating out of 10, go here.

    I did think that the review was by a user of the site, but I checked, the reviewer is the wesite's freelance editor.

    It's a good start so far! :bana:

    O dear :eek:

    Here's what I make of the ditz's review:

    The game is easier than Rugby06


    Cut scenes are the same as 06

    Tackler's gravity thing still there, if not increased
    Camera angles is supposed to be THE major improvement in 08 :wall:

    The guy is an idiot and hopefully we can safely ignore this review :lol:

    Oh dear, that last comment is appalling embarrasing!

    As for 'simpler controls', that doesn't neccessarily mean 'easier to play', might just mean easier to use.

    I'm assuming if he doesn't know what kicking the ball into touch is ( :wall: ) then he has never played Rugby 06. I think by simple controls that his IQ reached far enough to be able to navigate te menus and then kick the ball.

    Duh -- After the guy puts the ball in you press Q and then the direction you want your pack to move in. Jesus... This says a lot about the reviewer.

    I think he's referring to the ankle-tap...

    Or perhaps you would see an increase in your score...?

    I for a start, always turn off the commentary and the music. So I don't listen to the "announcer" anyways. It's so corny. "WHAT A MAGNIFICENT TACKLE!!" It's like -- Jeez, he didn't save them from losing the World Cup...

    No this was a pretty damn pointless interview I tell ya. The only good thing could be that, he probably reviewed Madden NFL and the other popular US titles, and seemed to have liked this one as well.

    But he's obviously a yanky n00b. So we'll just leave him at it.

    simplistic controls???

    compared to nba, madden etc

    Ea rugby has the most simplistic controls of all sports games

    its the only sports game that doesnt utilise pressing 2 buttons simultaneously to add depth in the controls

    ignore the simplistic control comment, the guy is used to his zenith like US sports game where controls are soo in depth, u can control a blocker in madden - thats like controlling support play in rugby...in 10 years we'll see that

    Haha, its always funny reading American reviews when they actually have no clue! Surely he could have just googled "kick the ball into touch" before making himself look like a complete knob :)

    American definition of rugby:-



    How to score:



    You can kick the football between the goalposts for a field goal. This kick can either be from a touchdown or from a PK or running field goal.



    Once the player has run with the ball over the enemies endzone, he must place the football firmly on the ground for a touchdown.



    Also, the game can be restarted from the sideline. This is called a penalty throw-out.



    Final assessment:- Needs more endzone.

    Good article for Rugby 08 on IGN. Check it out it may answer a few questions, also answered a few I had about the number of real faces in the game. Tuqiri now has his beard in place as shown in 1 of the screenshots.

    He means they will save on development costs. People who would buy it will likely buy it even if the game hasn't been significantly improved, especially with the new sales generated by the RWC. It doesn't make sense financially to spend money you don't need to. A dollar saved is as good as a dollar earned ;)

    I actually thought he was pretty honest about what they did this year and why they didn't put things like online in and most importantly hinted at a next-gen game and online play.
