MediaKick Review: Rugby World Cup 2011

MediaKick writes: It’s been quite a while since we last saw a rugby video game. EA’s Rugby series seeing it’s final outing with Rugby 08 marked the last rugby game released in quite a while, something quite strange considering the sport’s immense popularity. Now, in 2011, it seems they’re the Gods of Fate are attempting to rectify that with two rugby games released in a single year, the first being the officially licensed game of this year’s tournament, 2011 Rugby World Cup. Unfortunately, “licensed” is a strong term, but we’ll get to that in a bit. Fans of previous rugby games will recognise the developer HB Studios as the studio behind EA’s aforementioned Rugby 08 game. With a studio on board that knows how to make rugby games and the official license for the tournament, one would assume not much could go wrong. Unfortunately, quite a bit has. (505 Games, HB Studios, PS3, Rugby World Cup 2011, Xbox 360) C-/A+
