  • Summary: Get down with Rumble Roses, the first and only all-women?s wrestling game on any platform. These wrestling beauties not only score a perfect 10,000 polygons per character, they also have all the some of the best moves and talent found in any wrestling game. But make sure to watch out for that Mud Match Mode, because these sexy vixens might get dirty. Gorgeous female models and amazing gameplay. Play in the mud with the Rumble Roses in Mud Match Mode. Develop good or bad personas to change costumes and moves. [Konami] Expand

    Gallery mode (aka Pants Around Ankles mode) lets sexually repressed gamers get ridiculously close to some virtual flesh.

    It's one of those rare games that manages to capitalize on the whole sex appeal thing without sacrificing the gameplay along with it.
  3. It can actually be quite a laugh in a very basic sense - but the fact remains that there are better example of both genres, albeit independently.
  4. A good softcore tease with a decent wrestling game thrown in. If you're into that sort of thing.
  5. Beyond the jaw-dropping visuals there's actually a fun and entertaining piece of 'soft' ware to be held, er... had. So what if it raises a few eyebrows? It's only a game.
  6. 60
    Rumble Roses will probably go over very well at fraternity houses, bachelor parties, and the bedrooms of sexually frustrated teenage boys everywhere. It's too bad that there's a pretty good game underneath all the fluff here.
  7. Almost everything in Rumble Roses is poorly done, from the controls to the graphics to the writing to the voice acting. It's cheap, it's sleazy, and it utterly fails as a game.

    This game is teh r0x0rs...for many reasons. 1 - Hawt chixx0rs: This game satisfies a lot of sexual fetishes, and has gorgeous, 10,000 polygon models of attractive women. This is actually basically a softcore pr0n. I heard about this on 4chan a while back, and now I've played it, and teh chixx0rz = teh w00tness. Just try to keep the fapping to a minimum, please. 2 - VOW system: You can change your character's personality in Exhibition mode by completing certain missions using what's called a VOW system. If you are a n00b at wrestling games, you will get pwned by teh AI. But if you play SmackDown! and/or practice at this game a lot, these missions should be easy...except for VOW #30. How in teh hexx0r do I not take any damage. But if you complete enough VOWs that are against your character's alignment, her personality will change. For example, the teacher, Miss Spencer's personality alignment is 'Face' (fan favorite), but as she becomes a 'Heel' (a 'villain' of wrestling), she transforms from a teacher to an S&M freax0r who is escorted to the ring by a half-naked clown (who is unfortunately only whipped once), and becomes known as 'Mistress Spencer'. Once your character's personality is 100%, she can participate in a Title Match. Win, and you have her in teh gallery. 3 - t3h st0ry!: The story is pretty corny, sure, but there is some stuff in there that made me lmao HARD. Trust me. If you wanna laugh your ass off, this is where you are guaranteed to do just that. 4 - teh f1ght1ng: If you are a fan of Smackdown!, then you will catch on pretty quickly. The button mapping is slightly different though. And some moves humiliate your opponent, hell, some moves even humiliate yourself. But once you have a bar ready, if your opponent is fully embarassed, you can pull off a l33t Humiliation Move. Opponent not humiliated? You can still pull off a Killer Move (done from any posiition in which your opponent is standing), or a Lethal Move (Pulled off in a special position). You can even wrestle in a pool of mud (which Konami did a good job with, by the way)! 5 - Teh pr353nt4t10n: The music is incredible, and the song "Yankee Rose" makes me wanna memorize it so I can sing along. The entrance movies are great. Especially the entrances for Showbiz and Becky. Collapse

    This 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. Expand

    I preordered and got my copy today, now I have played more than 4 hours. It is fine but still left a lot to be done. Konami sais they use 10000 polygons on every character, I don't know this stuff, but characters are really not that polished as those in DOA. If that is called 10000 polygons, DOA must have 2 times more than that. I never expect RR has a kickass story and I am right.... Gameplay is well done, even though lack a little depth, but playing and watching girls messing with each other is pure fun. I won't recommend this game to you guys even though I bought the game and decided to keep it. Rent if first if you are really eager to see those girls. After all, it is the first VOA style game on PS2. Expand

    Ik denk dat het een goed spel zal worden want jullie kennen er niks van. En het leukste van al is ik kan jullie uitschellen zoveel ik kan. Lelijke mensen Expand
