Not bad but not the best


The game to play overall is a decent game but there could be some improvements made to the in game play which would make it more enjoyable and bring a lot more fun to it. Here are some of the things for a rugby league game I would enjoy

1- the ability to run under the posts (e.g. Just broken the defensive line with a winger after finding a nice gap out wide so after crossing the try line instead of diving automatically to score the try have the ability to run underneath the posts)

2- some in game plays while on attack (double line, dummy passes etc)

3- have the option to take more control over defence (line rush, wingers dropping back on final tackle)

But apart from what I've just mentioned above I do enjoy playing RL17 and will more than likely be purchasing from you again in the future.
Whether you put the above into the game as an update or as a RL18 then the game rating would go from a 3 star to a 5 star without hesitation.

Wish i could get my money back


Game play is alright but the game often becomes unresponsive to touch. You can pause the game but cant unpause and if you leave it in play you eventually concede a penalty even though you can play the ball. The tutorials are so annoying and theres no way to skip or turn them off. This game is really awful but it has potential to do so well.



Ok but not worth £4.99. There should be a career option where you could sign players and do more than one season. Also you only have 17 players in a team which means there is no reserves and as a Giants fan there is no mamo
