"This is it the truly definitive rugby game." says the blurb, when what they really mean is "the only rugby game on the market". Still, times are tough in Darlingland, as they must be slowly but surely running out of things to simulate. Duncan's offered them a controlling interest in Gardensoft. but no dice. (Advanced Dice Simulator? There's an idea.) Meanwhile, it's off to Twickenham, although suspicions are immediately raised when you see that the puff on the back ("An amazing mixture of strategy and fast action... absolutely brilliant'") is not from one of the mags but comes courtesy of one David Darling. In the end though, this actually is quite a good rugby game, using many of the tricks leamt by Jon Ritman on Match Days 1 and 2. It's easy to control, and many of its features, like scrums and throwins, are handled very impressively. If you've been waiting years for a decent rugby sim you'll love it - as for the wider market. I'm not sure, but I (who hate rugby) thoroughly enjoyed it.
