  1. We've also come to take EA's high presentation values and their sports titles' accessibility for granted, and Rugby 2004 has neither. In essence, it feels like a cynical attempt to steal cash from dazzled armchair Wilkinsons, and we're yanking a point off for that alone.

    This is the greatest game in existence! The huge hits! and very realistic commentators make it the best game on my list.

    EA really sh*t the bed on this one. Passing is slow, no backline plays in open play, player always goes down on ball even if there is no EA really sh*t the bed on this one. Passing is slow, no backline plays in open play, player always goes down on ball even if there is no opposition within 10 metres of him (among other blaring inaccuracies). The addition of super 12 and other teams is a nice touch, but what about all of the other extras included in the other EA titles. How about dynasty mode, national anthems for international tests, the Haka, laying the boots, throwback jerseys, or a 7's mini game. Wasted potential. Definitely not champagne rugby. The previous version is much better. Full Review »
