 Very Disappointing

| | See all Fish11's reviews (1)

Have just played the demo and it's pretty much exactly the same as rugby 08. The graphics are awful the players look nothing like they do in real life. It still has the same glitches as rugby 08. I knew it was made by the same company but they haven't improved anything. Extremely disappointed, Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge looks a lot better and with having club licences seems like the rugby game to have on PS3. I would give this game 0 stars if it gave me the option

While bearing the official Rugby World Cup 2011 logo on the box and emblazoned across menus, in tandem with the iconic "World in Union" tune, in reality only around half of the international teams taking part in the quadrennial tournament are officially represented in the game. Australia and New Zealand, the world's top two sides, the latter of which is also this year's host nation, are present--but not in any authorised capacity. There are no Tri-Nations, Six Nations, or Sevens World Series tournaments to be found, and where developer HB Studios' Rugby '08 allowed you to relive more than two dozen classic World Cup scenarios, in its place is now a forgettable goal-kicking mode.

Regardless of which of the handful of game modes you decide to take on, you'll fall victim to the inconsistent artificial intelligence. At the easiest settings, you can run straight through gaping holes left in the opposition's defensive line, run parallel to the other team without them taking the initiative to tackle, and watch as they forget what they were doing and give up chases early. The AI scales in difficulty as the tournament progresses, and teams do summon some enthusiasm on the way to the grand final, but expect a mostly unimpeded run for the silverware. At the easy and medium difficulty settings, rivals don't put up much of a fight, but cranking it up to hard provides significantly more challenge. At this highest setting, opposition players rush and lunge at you from a distance like over-caffeinated super cats as you attempt to clear from the ruck, and smother you before you can offload the ball after winning a line-out. Even when grossly outnumbered, the AI never attempts to hold you up in goal as you crash over the line. Fullbacks can be danced around with a late change in direction, and, once you've broken through, the opposition team follows you around like a pack of stray dogs chasing cars made out of steak.

Rugby World Cup 2011 feels like a game rushed out the door to cash in on the popularity of its real-world namesake event. Broken AI and a limited number of single-player modes make this an irritating and short-lived affair with little replay value. While some fun can be had in local and online multiplayer, there are concerns about its long-term community support and the potential for finding competition. This is poor game that is hard to justify to even the most ardent of rugby fans who are willing to overlook its numerous flaws.

 finally a rugby game

based on the demo this game is truely going to put the big game designers to want to make a rugby game made by the offical rugby board they have done well with this game. the set pieces classic , miss player or straight pass to pocket player etc are all assigned to a direction on the right stick. remember this is based on the demo and will all be polished up as in terms of close ups on players remember still got 3 weeks till release. other wise all animations are really good as in terms of dump takels etc . this game is a mans game for all you rugby fans buy it and take your team and win the world cup yeah

Played the demo and quite frankly I love it. It's more a less like Rugby 08 on the PlayStation 2 but with better graphics, much better commentary, and the fact that it feels like you're watching a proper rugby match. You won't be disappointed and cannot wait for the full game to be released on Aug 26th!
