WTMG's Leo Faria: "We’re getting there. Rugby 22 is still a flawed game, but it’s better than its predecessor, which was already a massive improvement over the disastrous Rugby 18. The core gameplay is there and the mechanics have been translated well into a gaming format. EKO Software now needs to improve the game’s presentation and fill it up with more content. This is the first rugby game released in almost fifteen years in which I can safely call it “good” and recommend it without a hitch, without any caveats, and that alone is worth celebrating. I can’t wait for the sequel."
