    Gallery mode (aka Pants Around Ankles mode) lets sexually repressed gamers get ridiculously close to some virtual flesh.
  2. Its sexuality comes off as more silly than really erotic and, if there wasn't actually a decent wrestling game under it all, it would be as disposable as yesterday's newspaper.
  3. By far one of the most unusual and surprisingly satisfying wrestling games and those fighting fans that don't mind a little tease will highly enjoy this one.
  4. Oh, yeah, and the ladies? They look good. Not only do they look good, their dresses, poses and mannerisms run the range of surprisingly ingenious and tasteful to downright scandalous. Got a fetish? Rumble Roses has it covered.

    A competent show-wrestling game with sexual overtones. [Mar. 05]

    A surprisingly fun time. And yes, the girls are pretty hot. [Jan 2005, p.125]

    It's one of those rare games that manages to capitalize on the whole sex appeal thing without sacrificing the gameplay along with it.
  8. It looks and plays very well. The big problem with Rumble Roses is the lack of depth. No real deep story mode, and really only two match types.

    Beyond the titillating visuals, Rumble Roses also packs a punch in the gameplay department. [Jan 2005, p.82]

    This is a good game overall. The gameplay can be a little difficult at first, but it is possible to continue defeating the computer. TheThis is a good game overall. The gameplay can be a little difficult at first, but it is possible to continue defeating the computer. The animations are not perfect, but graphics are decent for 2004. Some of the characters are borderline racist or sexist, I'm not sure which, but I'm not going to take this seriously. I'd rather play the sequels but I don't have an X360. This is good enough and you should pick up this game if you like fighters. Full Review »
