Rugby 18 

 

I am pleasantly surprised by Rugby 18 on the PS4 and Xbox One. Teen Gamer received a copy of Rugby 18 for his birthday. The options in this sports game are Quick Match, League, Career, My Squad, Weekly Challenge, and Extra. Rugby 18 is a bit light on modes. What it does provide is some fun and realistic Rugby action. I have never watched a Rugby game so my opinion is not based on history with the sport.

We have played a variety of Rugby games here at Family Friendly Gaming. After playing each and every single one of them we felt like we were no closer to understanding the sport of Rugby. That all changed with Rugby 18. I felt like I actually understood a few things. I started to learn how to play, and how to grind my way down the field to a score. I also learned to score closer to the middle for those try kicks.

Graphically Rugby 18 looks good. There is tackling in Rugby 18. Normally the tackles are not brutal. I saw a few clotheslines in Rugby 18. The team that did that kind of a tackle had a penalty called on them. The computer AI is pretty bright in Rugby 18. They rarely let me through the line. I learned to pass at the last minute to get by them. The stamina bar is a bit low for my tastes, especially after making it through the line.

Why did I start to understand a few things about Rugby after playing Rugby 18? I read the tutorial during my first game against the computer. I learned what to do in each instance. This helped me become better at Rugby video games. The control scheme makes sense since I have played other Rugby video games. The loading screen trivia is interesting. Too bad I failed so many questions.

There are numerous options available to the player in Rugby 18. I enjoyed playing around with them, and seeing how they impacted the games. I hope to see sequels to Rugby 18 in the future. Rugby 18 is a fun game that families can get into. There needs to be more modes and options though. Other modern sports games put Rugby 18 to shame in that regard.
