I haven't got a scanner fellas, so I can't post the review up here!

Anyway, in this months XBM Xbox magazine, it gives a whole half page (sarcasm intended) for a review of Rugby 2005!

The reviewer tells us he knows all about the sport, then starts to tell us about "Throw ins" meaning, of course, line-outs!

Anyway, the shocking thing is, they gave it 3 OUT OF 10

But that's not the worst..... they said "Avoid this!" and "It's a step back from rugby 2004" !!!!!! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTT
Now I know the reviewer hasn't a clue what he's talking about!

I'll try to sort out posting the review on here!

OK sum1 plz just go shoot that man.

Probably sum oke that played rugby as a kid and got dropped from the squad.

hehe so now he is trying to kill the game.

Or - Maybe the game is just sooo good that he tries to make everybody not buy it and then he is sure of getting a copy.



MMMMM tough one

I think that guy started playing rugby cause of the physical contact between men aroused him. He however found out that it was a bit more physical than initially thought.



Shame...

A step back from Rugby 2004? Meah, I can tell just from the videos that this review doesn't have much creditability.

Still, it would be interesting to know why this person thinks this.

A step back from rugby 2004 is like going to inner depths of rugby hell. This guy cant be serious. Maybe we should pay him a visit and make him finish the challenge tracking on easy - see how boring and repetitive the game is.

By calling the lineouts "throw ins", it sounds like he suffers from the same problem as the PC Zone article I posted the other day - not interested in rugby at all, but more interested in football (soccer).

They should leave the reviewing to people who would actually consider buying the game!

Let's face it, when I play games on the PC (when I ever actually get a chance to these days!), my favourite genre is FPS. If I was a reviewer and was given, say, Black & White to review ("god" game, for those who don't know...), I'd mark it pretty low because I'm just not interested in it! On the other hand, I would have considered buying Doom 3 before it was released, but on playing it, I found it to be a boring, mindless shooter, so I'd have marked it down. BUT, I'd have marked it down because it didn't live up to my expectations, not because I'm not interested in the subject matter.
