Loadedinc has posted their review of Rugby 06, giving it a 5 out of 10.
"So is this the ultimate rugby game? Well no. I'm not sure if anyone can get rugby totally converted to a videogame successfully but EA have had a good stab with this version and it's certainly an improvement over Rugby 2004. If you love rugby then I would give this a try (no pun intended, no really) but be warned it's really very average. Until someone can come up with better controls, more interaction at key gameplay points and still keep a rugby game playable, rugby fans will have to struggle through with what's available. The only other option is to make rugby like football, so simple that anyone can pick it up in 2 seconds, but I hope that day never comes, you have to separate the men from the boys right . Rugby truly is the king of sports but EA's Rugby 06 is definitely not the king of sport games."
