Drop goal, field goal, what's the difference?

Rugby is a the origin of American football and it is also faster, rougher, and more physical in every aspect. I am not big into sports except for the variations of golf and tennis but since I never owned a rugby video game before, I thought I should at least have one in my collection to play with. The game was a hard sale here in the United States and it certainly deserves more recognition. There is a nice tutorial mode that briskly explains the game to those uninformed but those familiar with the mechanics of American football will quickly notice the similarities (and the major differences) between the two games. Electronic Arts used real rugby athletes for the lineup but of course I do not have any inkling of who these guys really are.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
