A rugby game? I'm not a fan of the sport(never seen a game), but I hear it's way more brutal than American football and a game about it is something you don't see very often. I hope some rugby fan will pick this up and give feedback

Never seen a game ? Surprised considering youre from Europe.

Yeah rugby is pretty good, theres no padding so its amazing some of the hits these guys make. The rugby world cup is huge, enjoy watching that but i dont watch rugby week in week out.

Cant see this game selling much in the US but NZ/Australia should lap this one up.

Gentlemen play rugby. There is a lot of mutual respect. You should watch the All Blacks play...their Haka is mighty amazing (go YouTube this if you haven't seen the Haka before!!!).

American football meanwhile is full of deceit and unsportmanlike behaviour by spoilt brats. Not sure how this game plays though...steep price. Is it a full featured game?

I'm from Finland, there is no rugby here. It's UK and Ireland who should know rugby better

The bottom link is for a cheap version (US $.99) with only the quick match feature and one team. I might have to give that one a go... This looks like it could be interesting, I've been watching gameplay videos of the PC version.

Mhm. Just an FYI, those spoiled brats give million upon millions of dollars each year to charities. What does these so called gentlemen of rugby give back?

http://www.nflcharities.org/press_releases

And last time I checked, the world was watching the spoiled brats at the Super Bowl a tad bit more than the gentlemen of rugby.

Perhaps, http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/gam...hallenge/97735

will outsell, http://www.gamestop.com/collection/madden-nfl-13

But I doubt it.

It seems there is a greater interest in brats than gents, go figure.

Well aren't you a mad little fanboy. Of course it's good that they give back, but who are you to say rugby players don't too? How do you know that?

And many people only watch the super bowl for the commercials - including me.

And by gentlemen he means that they don't use any extra 'medicine' or whatever to grow their muscles.

Thats a stupid ridiculous view I'm from England but I love American football. Been following it for years. Just like any sport there are idiots wo play it but it's the same for any sport

'full of deceit and behaviour by spoilt brats' - ridiculous.

Not a "mad little fanboy", I just try and come with facts before making comments about people, something the person I quoted did not. I also did not indicate that Rugby players did not give to their local communities and charities, I just gave info regarding that the NFL does give millions each year.

Does that bother you on some level?
