    Only a slight step up from rugby 06. Graphics with probably the most improvement of all, and camera angles aswell. Lack of knowledge in terms of player rosters, player attributes out of date, also noticed alot of double ups in players. Could have alot of potential if was made for playstation 3.

    Good game, but very little changed from previous edition, little faults in gameplay still apparent, would expect more from this sequel.

    Too much like 06. rosters are too much out of date. probably not worth buying if you have rugby 06 already. just wait for rugby 10. playing positions given to lots of the players are incorrect.

    Rugby 08's greatest asset is the simplicity of the controls. Rugby's a fast-moving sport, with lots of things to do, but almost every action feels intuitive.
  2. Ultimately, you don’t need to be well-schooled in the sport to get a kick out of Rugby 08 - and if you’re not, the rollicking good time you’ll have will pique your interest. Sporting all the best players in the world, plenty of depth, and the chance to smash some helmet-less faces into the mud, it’s a title that we can really sink our teeth into.
  3. If you don’t know what rugby is or think of it as a poor-man’s football, this game will teach you what it’s all about, and entertain you. It’s a fast-paced sports game, and that translates well in any language.
