Rumble Roses PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Sex has played quite a part in games in recent years, though with the likes of the Dead or Alive series and Leisure Suit Larry, as well as the many other titles that feature scantily clad leading ladies, it’s without doubt at its most prevalent today. Rumble Roses is yet another example of the ever increasing sexual themes in games. The game is a wrestling title with a twist, featuring an all female cast, with not a single muscle bound man in sight.

Rumble Roses – Review

GameCritics.com
11 February 2006
  • Excerpt: If 1970's sex-ploitation filmmaker Russ Meyer was reincarnated as a Generation-X videogame developer, I have a strong feeling he would have created something like Rumble Roses . Konami's title is a tawdry pornographic take on the pro-wrestling genre featuring an all female cast of ridiculously sexed up vixens.

Rumble Roses – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
11 February 2006
  • Excerpt: As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing wrong with being a horndog (to use Chi's term), and there's nothing wrong with games that appeal to the libido. Granted, there has to be some kind of gameplay there for such games to be justified, otherwise they become interactive pornography. But, as long as the content is positioned correctly and the audience is appropriate, I'm all for it. So, the next logical question is "Does Rumble Roses' content justify the presentation?

  • Excerpt: You have to applaud Konami for Rumble Roses , really. The majority of games exist to tweak the very base of our primal instincts, such as the instinct to defend our territory. Sex isn’t generally as big a part of the modern video game as it is of the big screen blockbusters, although that does seem to be changing with releases such as Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude , Playboy: The Mansion and to an extent, Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball.

Game Over Online
16 December 2005
  • Excerpt: For years, gaming has been accused of objectifying women in its products. From the over-enhanced attributes of Lara Croft to the bouncy “breast physics” of the DOA series, it’s really hard to refute the “jiggle factor” that many games exploit. Unfortunately, not a lot of them own up to the unrealistic dimensions of their female characters. Not so with Konami’s wrestling title, Rumble Roses.

Rumble Roses Review

VideoGamer.com
3 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Much like the titular girls featured in the game, Rumble Roses is brash and brazen - it's got 'it', up front, and it's not afraid to show it off. Rumble roses also has something else in common with some of its girls - it's a bit simple. It's sexy, flashy and provocative, but it's a bit on the ditsy side - can one aspect offset the other?

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: When I think of Rumble Roses , I think of one word: “gratuitous.” However, with a “Mature” rating, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Rumble Roses celebrates the fact that we’ve moved beyond the 2D pixilated games of yesterday and stepped into a future with the ability to render realistic, believable, and even tantalizing T&A in real-time and under your control. For those of us, that is, those of you, who think, “This is all great, but why have the girls fight?

Rumble Roses review (PS2)

HonestGamers
8 May 2005
  • Excerpt: The first few notes of Yuka Watanabe's "The Spirit of Hawk" float through the crowded Rumble Roses arena with beauty and grace unbecoming of the Mongolian girl Aigle, a conveniently legal eighteen-year-old who "wants become great warrior like great father". She rides her big brown horse towards the ring, flashing a dignified smile at the crowd as her plump butt bounces up and down.

  • Summary: Pete has a titilating time with the all-female grappling breast-fest that is Yuke's Rumble Roses, but do the Roses have what it takes to pin the wrestling genre?

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Roses certainly takes catfighting to the extreme. Serious wrestling fans looking for a sim with depth and a detailed playing options should consider looking elsewhere but for many gamers it will be tough to pass up the opportunity to roll around in the mud with these chicks.
