Excerpt: Most wrestling games come in the form of dozens of sweaty men grabbing each other in a way only the director of Brokeback Mountain could appreciate. Thankfully the perverts..err I mean guys at Konami have something different in mind for their first Xbox 360 effort, in comes Rumble Roses XX.
Excerpt: Konami made its first foray into the world of professional wrestling back in late 2004 with Rumble Roses, an all-female grappler for the PlayStation 2 that was developed in tandem with longtime wrestling developer Yuke's. The game was in no way designed to be a simulation wrestling game.
Pros: A decent bit of variety and strategy in the wrestling, Great graphics, Online play
Cons: The game's voyeuristic aspects are kind of creepy at times, Not enough variety in the costumes and editing functions to make them worthwhile, Gameplay becomes predictable after a short time, Single-player experience is just kind of confusing
Excerpt: When a new console comes out, the wide-eyed kid in me wakes up and shoves the jaded, disillusioned gamer aside for a time. With Microsoft's new 360 technology in my living room and two more consoles on the way, there's an innocent little part of my psyche that expects all new games to just be better.
Excerpt: Rumble Roses XX is an all-girl wrestling game with over 20 sexy grapplers available to control. Each wrestler has her very own personality, from naughty nurse Anesthesia through to schoolgirl Reiko (sounds more like an adult film - Ed). All the combatants are capable of the usual manoeuvres expected in a wrestling game (suplexes, body-slams and drop-kicks to name but a few.) as well as each having their very own specific attacks and dangerous combinations.
