4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth Gameplay Mechanics October 7, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this game and received the competing game Rugby Challenge 2011 (RC 2011) for my birthday on the same day, so I am able to have a go at comparing Rugby World Cup 2011 (RWC 2011 - the game being reviewed here) to the said RC 2011.

RC 2011 (the other game), has more polished graphics, heaps of competition, club teams and customisation options. However, I believe that this game (RWC 2011) has smoother open play, better flow in the passing mechanism, better defending and more natural use of attacks or breaks over the advantage line. The line outs, rucks and scrums have more options in the other game. I have yet to see a driving maul in this game (I'd played both games for quite a few hours each, at the time of writing this review). RWC 2011 is limited to the 20 teams that qualified for the 2011 tournament.

Unfortunately, the licensing for player and team likenesses do not extend to the New Zealand or Australian teams, as these were snapped up by RC 2011). However, most of the other teams teams have all the authentic player names and you can edit any of the player names and statistics to your hearts content, but not their physical appearance.

This game doesn't have the same depth as RC 2011, but it does capture the Rugby World Cup atmosphere quite well (offical logo, crowd noises etc). You can either select the official draw for the World Cup, or randomly generate a new draw for more variation and replay value. You can also play one-off test matches and even go on northern or southern hemisphere tours.

The World Cup stadiums are presented in good style here, but are named by location, rather than actual stadium names
(offical names were snapped up by RC 2011).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much Content but pretty good October 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
There wasn't too much to this game you can only do the Full Tournament (real Schedule or random schedule) Warm up tour, International Tests (exhibition) and Place Kick Shoot out. but all in all it's an ok experiance

Pros
- The Tournament mode is great take a team from Pool Play and take them to the Fianls for the Web Ellis Cup. (i Played as Japan beat the Springboks 27-17 in the final to win the Web Ellis Cup)
-10 REAL Teams USA Eagles, Ireland, South Africa Springboks, Argentina Pumas, France, Scottland, Wales, Italy, Canada, and England Roses
- the stratagies (ie Dummy and screen) are well played out
Cons
-Tournament mode is short and after you win the Web Ellis Cup there is literaly nothing left to accomplish.
- The Tournament this year is in New Zealand yet no All Blacks team or the rival Wallabies.
- No National Anthems/Team anthems if i play as Ireland i want to hear Irelands Call before i play some rugby
-Since the All Blacks aren't in the game there is no Haka War Dance before a New Zealand game (yes NZ does have a team but genaric)
-Stratigies could have been thought out better and deliverd better
all and all its ok but I recommend Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge(which i preorederd)

I purchased this game for my Son who is a big Rugby fan. He says the graphics are awesome and he loves the realistic game play. It's definately worth the money for Rugby fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Rugby game for X-box September 23, 2011
By smeyler

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally a rugby title for Xbox 360. Game play is pretty good and feels like the flow of an actual rugby game. The breakdown is probably the part that is the least realistic. Generally, the better team maintains possession unless the opposition gets too agressive and gets called for a penalty.

Graphics are OK, seem a little rushed like they were scrambling to get this out in time for the actual world cup in September 2011. They are pretty weak when compared to something like Madden, but still OK. Just a little dated at times with backgrounds, etc. Not sure if it is a rights issue, but most (all?) of the players look nothing like their real-life counterparts (Paul O'Connell has brown hair for example). All in all, however, it is fun to play and, if you are a rugby fan, well worth getting.

Hoping that there will be a committed series of rugby games instead of one every few years.
