My first impressions of this game were that there were so many players attacking the ball that it was nigh on impossible to see what the hell was going on. But then you get to grips with the gameplay and suddenly everything falls into place. The pace is frantic and the action is non stop with many games ending in a nail biting finale. This is a tremendous two player sports sim that I could heartily recommend to those both new and old to the game of Rugby football. Congratulations are in order to Codemasters for producing two quality titles in the space of a couple of weeks.

Aussi complet que fun à jouer, les néophytes autant que les amateurs de rugby y trouveront leur compte. Même si, je le répète, la réalisation est en-deçà de la version PlayStation...
Player animation is unremarkable, but watching them as they go through their motions on the field you can appreciate the effort that has gone into getting every rugby move crammed in. Commentary is by the legendary Bill ‘it’s coming down with snow on’ McClaren, assisted by ex- England hack, Bill Beaumont, and although quite informative and helpful, they eventually start to grate, particularly when the same sentences are repeated so frequently. Overall though, the learning curve is superb and Jonah Lomu Rugby is great fun to play once the basics have been learned. Highly recommended.

Jonah Lomu Rugby est LE jeu de rugby de la PS1 ! Jouabilité aux petits oignons, commentaires délirants, durée de vie honorable et surtout plaisir de jeu inégalé composent ce titre soigné. Néanmoins, on pourra regretter une partie graphique un peu essoufflée, et l’impossibilité de changer de difficulté ; mais cela n’influence en rien le constat final, tellement la qualité et le fun sont présents. Après avoir conquis le public sur le terrain, l’« Insaisissable » domine le rugby virtuel et il n’est pas près de perdre sa place de leader avant un bon bout de temps.

It will take you a few games before you fully understand what is going on, its worth playing with a friend during this learning curve, so as not to get frustrated by the computer players scoring against you time and time again. Once the controls and rules of the game are mastered, a game which puts most of the American Football simulations to shame is revealed - this game is well worth a look!

Les graphismes sont clairs et l'animation est sans faille. Il existe toutefois pas mal de points gênants. On se retrouve bien souvent paumé car l'action est fouillie. Il arrive également que l'on marque en faisant une mêlée en poussant sur cinquante mètres. Frustrant ! Enfin, la réalisation est certes très belle, mais à long terme, on est moins pris dans l'ambiance que dans une partie de foot ou de basket. C'est vous qui voyez !
Essai transformé pour Codemasters avec cette simulation de rugby très jouable.
