Rugby 08 review

Smashing nations into smithereens, one World Cup rugby match at a time

Even though “World Cup” isn’t in the game’s title, this year’s tournament is represented here in its entirety. You can jump right into the 2007 Cup as one of dozens of international sides; help New Zealand’s legendary All Blacks regain the title that’s eluded them since the inaugural tournament in 1987, pilot their archrival Aussies to the championship, captain the defending champs England in pursuit of a repeat, or take any of the other qualified countries through pool play to the Finals.

DescriptionRugby might be football's rough-around-the-edges cousin, but nifty dual stick controls make for bone-jarring tackles and plenty of satisfaction.
