A Thrilling Rugby Experience: Rugby World Cup 2011 Xbox 360 Review

Title: A Thrilling Rugby Experience: Rugby World Cup 2011 Xbox 360 Review


As a fan of both rugby and video games, I was excited to get my hands on Rugby World Cup 2011 for Xbox 360. Developed by HB Studios, this game promised to deliver an immersive and authentic rugby experience. After spending countless hours playing it, I am ready to share my in-depth review of this game.

Graphics and Presentation:

Rugby World Cup 2011 boasts impressive graphics that capture the essence of the sport. The stadiums are beautifully rendered, and the player models are detailed and realistic. The animations during tackles, scrums, and lineouts are smooth and fluid, adding to the overall visual appeal. The game's presentation is also commendable, with accurate team kits, official logos, and a lively crowd atmosphere. However, the lack of player facial expressions and limited customization options for players and teams are minor drawbacks.


The gameplay in Rugby World Cup 2011 is where the game truly shines. The controls are intuitive and responsive, allowing for precise passing, kicking, and tackling. The game offers various modes, including the World Cup tournament, warm-up matches, and online multiplayer. The AI opponents provide a decent challenge, adapting to your playing style and making the matches engaging and competitive. The inclusion of official teams, players, and venues from the 2011 Rugby World Cup adds an extra layer of authenticity.

One of the standout features of this game is the ability to recreate iconic moments from the tournament. The game includes a scenario mode where players can relive and rewrite history by completing specific objectives in famous matches. This mode adds a unique and exciting dimension to the gameplay, making it a must-play for rugby enthusiasts.

However, the game does have a few shortcomings. The lack of depth in the gameplay mechanics, especially in terms of set pieces and rucks, may disappoint hardcore rugby fans. Additionally, the absence of a career mode or a comprehensive team management system limits the game's long-term appeal.

Sound and Commentary:

The sound design in Rugby World Cup 2011 is satisfactory, with realistic crowd chants, bone-crunching tackles, and the thud of the ball. The commentary, provided by Miles Harrison and Stuart Barnes, is informative and adds to the overall immersion. However, the commentary can become repetitive after extended play, and the absence of additional commentary teams is a missed opportunity.

Multiplayer and Online Features:

Rugby World Cup 2011 offers an enjoyable multiplayer experience, both locally and online. Playing with friends in the same room brings out the competitive spirit, while online matches provide a chance to test your skills against players from around the world. The online matchmaking is smooth, and the game rarely suffers from lag or connectivity issues.

Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars


Rugby World Cup 2011 for Xbox 360 delivers an exhilarating rugby experience that will satisfy both casual gamers and rugby enthusiasts. With its impressive graphics, engaging gameplay, and authentic presentation, the game successfully captures the essence of the sport. While it may lack some depth in certain areas and could benefit from additional features, it remains a solid choice for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the world of rugby gaming.
