Rugby Nations 09 Is Out Everywhere! $4.99!

For those of you who don't know, Distinctive have a long track record of developing sports games such as FIFA, Brian Lara Cricket, Michael Vaughan Cricket on mobile phones and most recently Anytime Pool on iPhone.

Rugby Nations 09 is a full 15 on 15 Rugby Union game featuring 10 national teams from around the World. Release date for the game has been set to be June 10

We initially planned to release the game earlier in the year but we've spent a lot more time polishing the game and adding more features to make it great value for money.

Headline features include:

* Full 15 players per team
* 10 nations teams.
* Excellent 3D graphics.
* Three different cup competitions.
* Unique control system using a mixture of accelerometer and touchscreen controls.
* Swipe controls to score conversions.

It looks pretty good, but I just bought X2 Football, so I think I got my sports gaming fix set for a little while...

Here's a potentially dumb question: If you know basically nothing about Rugby, how difficult is it to pick up the rules, i.e. would it be difficult to play a game like this with only a knowledge of American Football which it appears to share similarities with. I mean, I have a basic idea of advancing the ball through backwards (I think) pitching, kicking, etc., and there seems to be some equivalent to a field goal, but I wonder if this is something I should consider as a sports fan, and especially as a fan of American Football. I always like to be exposed to new sports, so I'm just concerned about the difficulties of the game. If someone that knew nothing about American Football were to ask me, I wouldn't know where to begin, there's so much to know. Any replies greatly appreciated.
