Rugby 18 is a dire simulation of the sport, with a paper-thin selection of modes, and relentlessly poor presentation.

This might only be for serious Rugby fans, but it's well executed to the point you can almost feel the mud on your face.

"Terrifying" is the right word to tell something about Rugby 18. The game is very far from what actually happens on the pitch, and it's not fun at all.

Though Eko Software has tried to give virtual rugby a breath of life – and in some ways, with a revamped control and camera system, it has – the lack of modes and dismal presentation leave a bad taste in the mouth. At full-price, Bigben is demanding an obscene amount of money for a game that feels years behind where it should be.

Poorly presented, and lacking in mode variety, Rugby 18 is salvaged by the fact that it's actually a pretty decent representation of rugby union on the pitch. It may not be the definitive version of the sport that the PS4 needs, but it's easily the best available.

Rugby 2018 is lacking of depth to reach the level of the best sports games.

The game is severely hobbled with cripplingly poor gameplay and pervasive glitches. The exclusion of bigger competitions and some international teams leaves players with a wafer-thin, ultimately disappointing experience.

Right now, there are just too many bugs, too many exploits, and just too little simulation of the best parts of the sport it tries to replicate for me to recommend Rugby 18.

Rugby 18 is a game with lots of issues: a bad AI, crappy dynamics based on button mashing, a broken commentary system, insufficient animation and so on. In a nutshell: this is not going to be your next rugby game.

Rugby 18 is a broken mess of a game and a dreadful representation of a beloved British sport.
