'Better than RN19'

'Only downside is the difficulty settings. It’s either far too easy where you win 30+ to nil. Or impossible to ever get the ball
back. There’s no in between.'

'Penalty for a forward pass????'

'Okay. Good to play! Only error I’ve found is penalty for a forward pass? Should be a scrummage. Other than that okay game'

Engaging Game but few improvements needed

It is an engaging game and fun, especially good that you need to use tactics against stronger team (e.g. kicking as well as
running, keeping it tight or passing further out). However:
1. Forward pass should be scrum not penalty
2. Players sometimes run aimlessly around before engaging
3. Difficult to switch to correct player to make tackle - sometimes they are running with player with ball and no way to tackle.
4. If ball kicked into touch or over dead ball line by opposition, defending team c

'Excellent Game'

'I’m addicted to this game, it’s so much fun. However there’re two things that it would be good to see. Often teams use a
player other than number 10 for goal kicking. It would be good to be able to choose which player you use. Secondly on a related
point there aren’t as many penalties as in the real game and it would be great if there were a few more place kicking
opportunities.'

'Ideas for Future Updates'

'Overall, a fantastic, fun game. However, it does have some frustrating bugs. One of the most prominent bugs is when players get
stuck when they are tackled. This leaves you unable to play the rest of the match. \nI was exited when you released the British &
Irish Lions squad and was wondering if you could release a Barbarians Squad in a future update. This Barbarians Squad would allow
you to pick a 23 man team from any of the international or club teams featured in the game, in a “dream team

'Improvements in hopefully next RN'

'I have played RN15 16 and 18 and so I have seen the improvements the developers have made but still they could do more. There is
no other iOS rugby game that compares to them so they already have all the rugby fans on iOS playing there game but there is so
much potential for it to make it a game even non rugby fans will want to play. \n\nStamina: in a normal rugby game players can run
the full pitch and then becoming out of breath but wingers in the game will run 25m and then start jogging and

'Great Game just a few flaws'

'Quality game that could do with a few changes:\n-Make it easier to keep your own ball and make it harder to steal opposition
ball\n-Shouldn’t it be a scrum for a forward pass not a penalty?\n-Sometimes players running back in defense tackle when they
are in a massively offside position\n-I think if you time the tackle horribly wrong a penalty should be given for high
tackle\nHave more penalties given away so it makes the game more realistic ie if the opposition team has already 4 men in the r

Too easy by far

After playing nearly 50 games I’ve won 50 and conceded 0 points. Too easy which makes it unrealistic. Please improve this.

Major Bug Fixes Needed

The game is fun to play however isn’t as lifelike as I would want it to be. The opposition sometimes decide to not take a line
out and just stand there, so I lose all the progress in a game that I was about to win. Also, after a ruck, the tackler or the
person running with the ball just decides to lie down for the rest of the game, which MUST be fixed. Not worth the price though.
An absolute rip off!

Broken

They’ve made some of the challenges and levels in this game impossible it seems. It’s impossible to defend because you can’t
switch player and it’s impossible to attack as your players can’t run it seems and they throw it into touch with one simple
press of the button. The wingers stay always out side so there’s no attacking threat when it seems like there are 30 players
against you, yes including your own team. It’s entertaining until you get onto other difficulties that aren’t the easiest one

Pretty infuriating..

So many bad points. Too many exploits from both AI and the player so no skill is involved, it barely resembles rugby. Defending is
impossible.

Only okay if you’re desperate for a rugby game on iOS.

Has potential

This game is 60% there. When spinning it down the line the man you’re passing tries to do a switch most times.. they hardly run
straight or drift a bit with the play. The funniest thing is you can score drop goals with a punt with any player so it’s
actually easier to keep the score ticking by punting the ball over with Dan Cole from the ten! Oh and I got a penalty for the oppo
throwing a forward pass!

DO NOT BUY

It is very disappointing if anything it is a step backwards from the 2017 version. The tackling must be improved as well as the ai
who for some reason 90 percent of the time will just kick the ball away from about 5cm away from the try line.
If you look at games like FIFA what is free this is a joke. If it was not for the huge amount of teams you can play for I would
have given a 1 STAR review.

It very realistic.... even though it has proper player names... can’t do set plays... ball being passed around like a hot potato
when playing against the computer... not worth £5 and I want my money back. Waste of money

Rules?

I loved the old versions of the game. This is good, but it appears to not know the rules of the game (penalties for knock-ons
etc.). Should be a simple fix?

Irritating

Where to start...
the graphics for this game are great and I do like the rugby nations series. But there are now so many issues and irritations with
this game that I find I don’t play it.

- rules are wrong... teams get a penalty for a forward pass... when you kick the ball beyond the dead ball line the team gets a
drop out.
- when defending, the computer randomly selects a player to perform the tackle, even if this player is 30 meters from the ball
carrier (making defending almost impossible

Not realistic

Need to add tactics for attack and defence, all players can tackle not just you and needs to get the rules of rugby right.

Good game but far too may glitches 👍

£5 for this seemed like a bit much but it’s one of the only good Rugby games out there so I decided to get it. But there are
far too many glitches like the fact that Backs literally cannot go into rucks and if not instructed to do anything they just run
around like headless chickens 🐓! Also sometimes when you press pass for some reason the player kicks it, what’s the point of
that ???
Credit where credit is due it is a good game but it would be a far better game if they sort the glitches out.👍

Incredibly disappointing

As a general rule, I can’t be bothered to comment on the games I buy, but as the predecessors to RN18 have consistently been my
favourite game over the years, I feel I must comment. The designers have wrecked a great game. The controls are terrible, tackling
with any strategic though is impossible and hit and miss and it is virtually impossible to achieve any go forward. I can not
control sprinting and it is virtually impossible to side step. I play this game to take my mind off work, but with t
