Conclusion: It's taken me three years of off and on play. For a developer to put someone through this in a game that offers so little is cruel and sadistic. That said, Rumble Roses XX still gets to spin in my console from time to time. Not that I recommend that you give it a try. Unless you like to feel miserable.
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: Remember when you used to watch G.I. Joe? I do. I remember specifically, Flint, Duke and Hawk all espousing a certain advice time and time again: namely, “we can’t let [insert weapon/technology here] fall into the wrong hands!” The Joes were talking about the emergence of Rumble Roses XX on the Xbox 360, and they didn’t even know it. Not that RRXX was created by Cobra--that’s not it at all.
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.
