The game, if you can call it that, is a mess and it’s not gone unnoticed.
If you’ve read my review posted earlier today then you’ll know I was less than impressed with this shoddy release from 505 and Cyanide. The game is an unfinished mess and any rugby fan should steer well clear.
This afternoon the Steam discussion forums lit up with angry responses from purchasers with calls for refunds and an actual proper response from the developers.
505 and Cynide are now attempting to calm the storm and posted the following update:
Cyanide and 505 Games would like to thank the community for the support of Pro Rugby Manager 2015. We are aware that players are encountering some common issues with the game including:
- Game resetting during April 2015 fixtures
- The allocation of points and bonuses when a game is won.
- Redirection to the player sheet of “Tom Crux” when scouting for new talents
- Incorrect Player Positions
We are currently investigating these issues and we will be working hard to issue an update patch over the coming week.
We will communicate again when the patch and fixes are due to go live. In the meantime, please post any feedback or issues you encounter to our Facebook page or email our support team at [email protected]

Seriously? These were the main bugs they found that need to be addressed? These notes don’t event touch on the game’s problems. Missing menu text, constant crashing if you can even get it to load at all, set plays that do nothing, the list goes on.
I’m convinced this game was shoved out the door with very limited testing. It’s an incomplete product that should have never made it onto Steam. It will now take Cyanide a week to fix the above and any other problems they can sort in that timeframe. PRM 2015 is not a finished game, 505 and Cyanide should be ashamed to have pushed this out the door and it’s an insult to fans of the sport.
Do not buy this. Wait until there is actually a proper rugby management game included in the download. I sincerely hope this game can be salvaged but it’s going to take a long time.
