General Comments
World Championship Rugby is just SO DISAPPOINTING. I really thought that this game would finally give Rugby fans such as myself a game to compete anywear near the likes of Pro Evo Soccer 3 or even the Fifa series for that matter, but it comes up way short.

Johna Lomu was a fantastic game and I thought the fact that WCR was from these guys that this would give some indication of what to expect but it only adds to create a huge disapointment. In short it could of been so much better with some more attention to detail.

Little things such as match Stats and points scored by individuals just add soo much to a game. Kicking in play and for touch should be easier. Commentary is appaling. Speach is very slow and drawn out and just doesn't sound right.

Playability is basic and you can't do any set moves in the back line like on EA Rugby. Having said that, at times it can be rewarding with the timing of passes to draw the man. And passing is much more responsive than EA Rugby. You can't spint long enough (only about 3 secs) with the quicker players and it's hard to make clearing kicks without getting tackled. The full back in the opossing teams always seems to come out of nowhere to tackle you at a ridiculous speed.

Johna Lomu is still the best rugby game ever produced and it is 9 years old now! Don't waste your money, rent it first to see all this for yourself.
