    The best rugby game ever is still Jonah Lomu Rugby. I still play it often with friends and will continue too over the years, I would rate Rugby League Live 2 as the next best

    Rugby Challenge 1 and 2 gameplay was crap and boring. Rugby 08 was just a rehash of 05 and 06 but was ok

    Graphics don't mean anything to me, it should be all about the gameplay and none of them are up to par for a great rugby game but JLR is still the most fun with friends by far

    I refused to even try that Rugby 15 game (first rugby game ive never played) after hearing comments and watching a couple videos

    The whole JLR romanticism stopped being relevant after EA Rugby '08 in my view. JLR was a fun game, but the rucking and scrumming systems were paper thin and almost ridiculous and it was a pretty poorly balanced game on the whole. Fun, but poor as a simulation.

    Rugby 08, RC, RC 2, RLL2, Sidhe RL 1 and 3, and even the last RWC game were all better game play than JLR.

    Wicked Witch would have to have significantly lifted their game over previous efforts. From the response of fans they effectively dropped the quality of AFL Live in their AFL Live 2 rather than progressed it. They developed an apparently woeful Rugby League Live game for tablets and phones.

    Still, I have nothing at all against them and it would be great to see them do exactly that and lift their game. I'm going to keep an open mind about what will happen should they turn out to be the developer.

    With the RC 3 Fanhub beta being released on steam, they have also revealed the competitions it includes which helps suggest what teams will be licensed:
    it also included a picture of England players in a fully licensed England kit, I definitely think RC3 will be getting my money

    Wow what a massive coup for HES - completely undercut BigBen by snagging the world's 4 biggest international teams in a World Cup year.

    Liking the look of it so far - RLL2 is looking better graphically, but RC3 still craps on RWC

    this game is dead, rugby challenge 3 will completely overshadow it if its anything like rugby 15 was

    Ive heard you say his before but you are so wrong. I believe I saw you were a bit younger and missed when JLR was very popular and tried it later. None of them have better gameplay then JLR by any chance but RLL2 is the closest to matching it. RC and RC2 suck, Rugby 08 was just another Rugby 05,06 with very minor additions and the gameplay became very repetitive. RWC game was just another version of Rugby 08 again, Nothing matches the gameplay of multiplayer with mates with JLR. You are entitled to you're opinion though but I don't enjoy any of those games that much except for RLL2 which I consider to be a very very good game. RC2 lacked enjoyable gameplay

    Mate, you're as entitled to your opinion as I am mine, so this isn't really a matter of "right or wrong." You didn't find RC2 fun? That's fair enough, and just as valid as me not enjoying JLR.

    You're correct that I was a bit young when it came out, but not that young... I was still in high school at the time and I played the old SNES ARL 96 too. As I said though, I just don't think it holds up well at all against all but Rugby 2000 and Rugby 2004 (and probably Rugby 15 to be fair - just so awful).

    I actually do still like JLR as a game. When people play it now, it's the graphics and the silly players running in and out of the rucks that puts them off. The mechanisms, the contestability of the game is still top line. The game is deep.

    There are things you can do in JLR, that are exceptionally well done. The ability to hold a pass, ready to go, and decide whether or not to attempt to off-load whilst going down in a legs tackle has never been done better, for example.

    I play it occasionally on my PC with a PS/2 emulator and I get a decent amount of enjoyment out of the game. I'm not a fan of how the place kicks curl in so dramatically and trying to win rucks against good teams hurts my fingers but it's a great game overall, I wish games could be made to last longer than 15 minutes though.

    seriously, wtf happened to HB Studios?

    Rugby 05,06 and 08 were great games. Hell I didn't even mind Rugby World Cup 2011, it was still fairly enjoyable. Then the last 2 years of utter ****, wtf happened? Are they purposely attempting to make not only the worst rugby games of all time but perhaps the worst video game out of any developer worldwide for the last 2 years running

    You should be ashamed HB Studios, this is beyond a joke.

    Reminds me of the wrestling games. Pretty much never improve whatsoever. If anything, they regress.
