Rumble Roses XX – Consumer Guide

Brad Gallaway's picture

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Violence

Parents… do I really even need to say anything? The game is all about scantily clad and over-endowed women beating up on each other in a wrestling ring. When not wrestling, they're posing for provocative photos at the beach or having their plentiful assets increased by players who spend time improving physical statistics. This is a fine example of content that's appropriate for adults, but absolutely, positively, under no circumstances would this ever be OK for children.

Husbands or boyfriends will not want to play this game when wives or girlfriends are around. The stuff that shows up on screen isn't technically explicit, but it will certainly earn you a few stern glares or uncomfortable questions.

Wrestling fans should probably pass. The technical aspects to the action are light, and don't offer much in the way of depth or variety. Movement is rather slow, and the computer opponents are either pushovers or nearly invulnerable. If you really want a wrestling that you can sink your teeth into, this isn't it.

Fans of beautiful women, this is your game. The ladies here are second to none, and although there isn't as much in the way of outfits or customization as one would hope, there are still some very interesting aspects. The photo shoot option is as close to pornography in a mainstream video game as I've ever seen, and the ability to round up or slim down the combatants brings female objectification to an all-new level. Your mileage may vary.

Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing gamers won't have any problems. Naturally, everything that matters in the game is visual. There are no auditory cues that play a role during the action, and I can't recall even one instance of dialogue. I suppose completely removing the story mode to care of that little problem. It's fully accessible, so feast your eyes.
