Overall Although the release of Rugby 2004 was only a short while ago this game is by no means just a budget version. It is really sort of like the old school Jonah Lomu game. The game totally brings the arcade feel back into it. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The game is easy to control yet you still feel as if you have total control of everything. There are so many game modes it would be impossible to count and if you get bored with them you can create your own tournament.
