Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge is pretty much the best rugby game ever made till this day - it's simply that damn good. Featuring a nice amount of international teams, Rugby Challenge doesn't go light on the content front as the modes are engaging and the game is just filled with detail and sheer enjoyment due to how the smooth it plays.
Controls are responsive and don't take too long to master.
The graphics and animations do an excellent job of conveying a sense of realism to the game.
Having licensed teams such as the New Zealand All Blacks is a terrific addition.
Presentation is top notch and getting replays on key moments is greatly appreciated.
Its Just great that Mad Catz decided to bring this game to the United State, It an Must buy for any rugby fan Out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subdue and Penetrate October 25, 2011
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
"Subdue and penetrate"--Motto of the New Zealand All-Blacks Rugby Team.

I was only passingly familiar with Rugby when I got my hands on Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge, but I had played a lot of sports games so I thought I would give it a try. I was happily surprised by the addictive gameplay, intuitive controls, and just plain fun that Rugby Challenge offers. If you don't know much about Rugby, imagine the violent unholy lovechild of a marriage between football and soccer. It's football without the armor. It's soccer with full-speed tackling. It's pretty awesome.

If you are familiar with xbox sports games, you will probably be able to skip the tutorials and dive right in. However, if you are not familiar with Rugby there is a lot to be gleaned from the tutorial levels. The tutorials are broken into basic, intermediate, advanced, and professional tiers, each with about 6-8 skills. These skills range from moving the ball down the field to rather complicated manuevers like rucks, scrums, and onside tossing. Unfamiliar with the basics of Rugby? The tutorials are also very useful for giving you a decent vocabulary and solid grasp for the mechanics of the game.

There are several game modes: single game, career, and multiplayer.

The single game allows you to select 2 teams and play as one of them against an AI opponent. Many rugby teams from around the world are assigned a score (100 point scale). I can't speak to the completeness of the offering, but I did find a lot of teams to choose between. I found this mode particularly useful to transition between tutorial and career because I could select a fairly robust team for myself (Crimson) and lesser team for the AI (Praetoria) and have a little wiggle room to try out what I learned in the tutorial.

3.0 out of 5 stars Best rugby game available October 25, 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have only had this game for a little over 24 hours but I can say without a doubt that the developers have hit a homerun. It is so frustrating being a rugby fan in the United States because the availability for titles like this one are so limited. I finally got my hands on this game and it did not disappoint. The gameplay is fantastic, I love the trailing camera where it feels like you are in the line. I really think it is a huge imporvement over the old fashioned sideline camera. All the great teams are in it; the only teams and country that are not licensed is South Africa and their Super Rugby teams. As a southern hemisphere fan this should be the only title you pick up because on the other rugby game you can not play as the real All Black or Wallabies. The only problem I have with the game and why I gave it 4 stars is the passing can be glitchy at times. It seems like sometimes I need to push the pass button more than required.
UPDATE: I found many more flaws with this game. The game play is simply not very realistic in regards to real rugby. I also find the career mode to be terribly boring after one season; you are given no opportunities to act like a true coach and add players, make plays etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible if you know what rugby is November 11, 2013
By Will
Verified Purchase
For someone who has played rugby nearly all their life, i thought I had finally found the game I had been waiting for. Even though they have real teams and real uniforms, the gameplay itself is not great. It is almost as if anyone plays anywhere except for set plays like scrums and line outs. The scrum half doesn't get the ball from the ruck but rather anyone who gets their first. Same goes for who receives the ball, it can be anyone, not necessarily a back. The conversion is also very hard to master. This game is good for someone who is just getting into the game, but for anyone who has played or knows the game well, it's poorly developed. Being Jonah Lomu too, I thought it would be good but I was wrong.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If this tackling was used in an american football video game it would not sell. The fact that it is an up to date rugby game is the best part of it. The game play is pretty bad, unrealistic passes, and the tackling is horrible. I was stocked when the game came in but after playing it, buying it for $60 is WAY to much. It is 2012, make a better game play rugby game. I'm ready to sell mine.

Folks just don't seem to like the graphics at all. I will probably end up reselling this game. Don't think it will be missed at all.

Without this title I would never have realized how much this sport should be more popular here. Great game and worth the price.
