Rugbydump fans feature in Rugby Nations 2011 mobile game

Rugbydump fans feature in Rugby Nations 2011 mobile game

A while back we ran a contest with our friends Distinctive Developments for you to win a chance to get your name in the game, the game being their latest mobile offering, Rugby Nations 2011 . Today we'll take a closer look at the game itself.

There's been a lot of focus and buzz surrounding the latest console and PC rugby games, with much speculation about which is best, and both being eagerly anticipated. There is another option though, especially if you're a smartphone user who fancies playing on the go.

While Rugby Nations 2011 doesn't have official player name licenses, we came up with a way to make things more interactive for RD users - offer you a chance to get your name in the game. Many entries were received, and the winners' names are now featured in the game.

Rugby Nations 2011 has a brand new gameplay system, game modes, and 20 rugby nations taking part. You can demonstrate your strategic skills with team management and take your team all the way to being World Champions. The state-of-the-art visuals comprise fully motion-captured animations, new player models and cut scenes, and include an authentic Haka too.

All new gameplay system
It has a new gameplay system with more fully playable elements. The restructured defensive setup includes everything from standing tackles and mauls to competitive rucks. With line-outs, long passes, grubbers, penalties and much more, the game is now entirely in your hands.

Team Management
The new team management feature allows you to take charge of your team with player names and statistics guiding you in your decision-making process. Rugby Nations 2011 is proud to feature Rugby Nations and Rugbydump fans as players within the game across the 20 countries.

Bigger, better, and more game modes
Fully revamped game modes are joined by a brand new Challenges mode, where you bring your rugby expertise to the test with different scenario-based challenges. World Cup tournament has seen a complete overhaul and now features group and knock-out stages.

Authentic visuals with live rugby broadcast feel
All-new motion-captured animations, redesigned player models and a fresh new look deliver an experience on a small screen ready to rival console games. Cut scenes from Haka to victory celebrations are all paying homage to the passion of this great sport and its players.

You can buy the game on the App store now , or check out the free game, Rugby Kicks, which focuses on kicking, and is available now in both iPhone and Android formats.

Amen, this is quite honestly better than RWC2011. Rugby challenge looks the way to go for sure. Wait four years and the lazy pricks spit out and almost identical game made worse by the fact that they couldn't license any decent teams or competitions!

Sorry guys but this game is pretty poor. Once you figure it out you can win the RWC with Georgia on the hardest setting, and the programmers have even got some of the laws wrong! Ah well...

Rugby Challenge + Rugby World Cup 2011 are both poor for 360/PS3. At least Rugby Challenge lets you play as a club side (even if the squads are all wrong).

Bugs galore, awful commentary, poor gameplay, weird AI, average visuals and neither have proper names for all players.
