v1.0 - First Version...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ii. Introduction
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello again everybody. Ok, first off to tell you, I have not played this game :( 
However, I got a lot of info. from NP Mag. and other various websites to make 
this FAQ. I wrote this because I know that it is frustrating when you want a FAQ 
for a new game that you buy, and then you go to GameFAQs.com and can't find one. 
I wrote this to help out people who need it. Yes, I haven't played the game, but 
just because you haven't played a game doesn't mean you can't make a FAQ for it, 
so in honor of those who want help here it is...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1.) Camera Angles
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In R2RB there are quite a few camera modes to choose from. Basically this part 
of the FAQ explains each Camera mode and how it looks, so here they are:

Normal View - This is your standard fighting view. As you and your oppenent move 
so does the camera. It is not to close and not to far away from the players, but 
a little pulled back. This is basically your default camera view.

Slow Motion - The reason why I call this "Slow Motion" view is because it makes 
the game more dramatic by making the camera rotate very slowly around the 
characters making it seem very realistic.

Fan View - You are now in the eyes of a typical fan. The Fan View allows you to 
view the match from a spectators eyes. The camera is pulled back outside the 
ring so you get the sensation of what a fan sees during a match.

Slow Motion (Ring) - This is basically the same thing as the "Slow Motion" view 
only that it rotates very slowly around the ring instead of the characters 
themselves. So it is just basically pulled back.

1st Person View (You) - BAM! See the action in the eyes of your own character. 
This camera view is up close and personal with the character you choose and 
shows each punch you take and throw.

1st Person View (Opponent) - This is the same thing as before only the camera is 
in your opponents face rather than yours. These 2 modes are pretty good if you 
want to get a good look at the characters faces, but for beginners I recommend 
you stick with normal view.

Well, those are all the Camera Views. For beginners to the game, stick with 
Normal View. But if you want to try out different things to make the gaming 
environment more dramatic or fun try all the different views.



~~~~~~~~~~
2.) Moves
~~~~~~~~~~
First off here is a NOTE - In this section I list NO MOVES for any character. 
Check the "CHARACTERS MOVES" section for that. Here I describe some tricks while 
fighting, they are pretty basic, but for those new to the game you won't know 
what they are...

R U M B L E ! 
This is a great feature in R2RB! Once you deal out a certain amount of damage to 
your opponent, you will notice a letter appears on the bottom of the screen. 
Your goal here is to spell out the word "RUMBLE" by collecting all the letters. 
Once you do this, press the A and B buttons at the same time and your character 
will yell out and his or her gloves will start glowing which does MAJOR damage 
to your opponent.

Rumble Flurry
This has to do with the Rumble Mode gameplay (See Gameplay types). While playing 
in this mode you have infinite stamina. This is VERY useful! Press C-Down and C-
Right to deal out the dangerous Combo, Rumble Flurry, which your oppenent will 
almost 99.9% of the time not be able to block.

Basic Moves
Of course, besides each characters "Special Move" they all have a basic set of 
moves such as various types of punches, jabs, uppercuts, etc. It is always good 
to use these, but if you're looking to do some real damage try combos, and 
"Special Moves" to finish off an opponent.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3.) Gameplay Modes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Arcade Mode
The Arcade Mode consists of just plain ol' fighting and nothing else. While in 
other gameplay modes you fight for prizes, money, and to further your characters 
abilities, in Arcade mode there is NONE of that. Just a fight and nothing else.

Championship Mode
Here's what you've been lookin' for! Money, Prizes and Strength, oh my! In 
championship mode, you fight opponents and when you win your character will gain 
money and prizes which enable him/her to gain more Strength.

   Training (Championship Mode)
   This is still part of the Championship mode, but it's what takes    place 
before you hop into the ring. Of Course when your characters    start out they 
are _very_ un-skilled. That is what training mode is    for. Here's what you 
will be doing:

      Hit the Ball!
      This is rather easy, and gives the player a sensation of the 
      controls for the game. All you have to do is push the correct
      button right when the little Ball on top of it does. 

      Punching Bag
      Just follow what the directions say. If they say to Sway left,
      do it. If they say sway right, do it. This can be very difficult
      for some. Just try to alternate your punches to keep that bag
      moving.

      Mini-Bag
      In this training game, you have POWER but not a lot. Just make
      sure alternate your punches and keep that little punching 
      bag moving.

      BIG Bag 
      This is the last training for a bit. You get a certain amount of 
      time so be quick! Follow the instructions you receive on the 
      screen.

      Training Complete!
      After training is done, you will see a screen with a bag on it
      and show your training value percent and rating. You can either
      set the training value to "Automatic" or "Manual" While with 
      Automatic you can get up to 100% but with Manual you can WAY
      more if you work hard. It's up to you. If you think you are 
      good at manual work, choose Manual, otherwise, if you just 
      like to take it easy and let the AI do it for ya, choose 
      Automatic, but that might lower your rating.

      Other Training
      There are also some other training modes besides the basic ones.
      You can choose the "Weight Lifting" training which sound pretty
      easy but it's not. No your controller isn't going to magically
      weight 2 tons and make you lift it, but instead you must press 
      the A button to start the weight, and stop it as close as you 
      can to the white line.
      
      Other Training (#2)
      Another Training mode you can try out is Vitamin and Mass 
      Nutrition training. This doesn't involve ACTUAL training but
      it does cost you some dough. 

   P R I Z E   F I G H T S 
   Whew, now that your character is a little built up, it's time to 
   get into the ring! This is one way to get some $$$ and is mandatory
   if you want your character to get any stronger. A REALLY FUN way 
   to make some quick cash is to BET on your boxer. The maximum amount
   you can bet is $20,000 but remember if you lose the match, your out
   that much cash :)

   Title Fights
   This is the 2nd way you can earn some $$$ and get a shot at the 
   Championship. After you pass the 10 ranks you'll face the champ.
   You'll also get a secret boxer. This is just another way to 
   make some money if you need some.

4.) Character Bios
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Not Actually "BIOS" but stats)

Boris Knokimov
Age: 30
Weight: 220 lbs.
Reach: 73" (6' 3")
Height: 6' 3"

Boris is strong and has a great fighting style. He is a good character to use in 
the beginning of gameplay.


Butcher Brown
Age: 23
Weight: 232 lbs.
Reach: 83" (7' 3")
Height: 5' 9"

He may be short, but boy is he tough! A 7' reach gives him a GREAT advantage 
over mostly all of his opponents.


Afro Thunder 
Age: 21
Weight: 120 lbs.
Reach: 70" (6')
Height: 5'7"

Just goes to show ya' that skinny people _CAN_ fight! Only a mere 120 pounds, 
Afro has a HUGE energy supply which is a GREAT advantage over opponents. Btw, 
this is the character with the big ol' Afro :)


Salua Tua
Age: 33
Weight: 358 lbs.
Reach: 77" (6' 7")
Height: 6' 0"

Mr. Sumo himself. This guy is HUGE! Although he may be slow due to his weight, 
but that is all made up for with his massive Strength!


Angel "Raging" Rivera
Age: 23
Weight: 155 lbs.
Reach: 71" (6' 1")
Height: 5' 9"

This is proabably the most "Average" boxer you will find. Just the right size 
for boxing.


Tank Thrasher
Age: 26
Weight: 290 lbs.
Reach: 80" (7')
Height: 6' 4"

A little on the heavy side, but nevertheless Tank is one mean boxer. He doesn't 
really care about his own safety, but rather on getting rid of others'.


Selene Strike
Age: 24
Weight: 130 lbs.
Reach: 80" (7')
Height: 6' 2"

One of the 2 women in R2RB, Selene may seem on the skinny side but her reach is 
great. She is also a little on the slower side as well.


Jet "Iron" Chin
Age: 20
Weight: 150 lbs.
Reach: 78" (6' 8")
Height: 5' 8"

The youngest one of all. Jet has great jabs, chops, and backhands. He also has 
excellent speed.


Rocket Samchay
Age: 23
Weight: 165
Reach: 78" (6' 8")
Height: 6' 2"

AHH! A former kickboxer, but that does him no good in boxing. However, he is 
VERY good with his hands as well as his feet.


"Furious" Faz Motar
Age: 28
Weight: 230
Reach: 76" (6' 7") 
Height: 6' 5"

This Saudi Arabian guy may be pretty slow, but that is made up for with his 
great power.


Lulu Valentine
Age: 21
Weight: 105
Reach: 64" (5' 4")
Height: 5' 2"

The 2nd woman boxer in the game as well as the smallest boxer I've ever seen :) 
which makes her quick on her feet and able to take out anyone...


"Big" Willy Johnson
Age: 108 
Weight: 175
Reach: 72" (6' 2")
Height: 5' 10"

This guy is 108 and boxing!? He has traveled the oceans for a century
just to come and compete in R2RB :)


J.R. Flurry
Age: 21
Weight: 160
Reach: 71" (6' 1")
Height: 6' 3"

This guy is REALLY fast. He does seem a little conceited but all boxers are like 
that :)


****** S E C R E T    B O X E R S******

Kemo Claw
Age: 34
Weight: 120
Reach: 99" (8' 9")
Height: 7' 1"

This guy is huge. He has an almost 9' REACH!!! This is a great secret character 
IMO.


Bruce Blade
Age: 25
Weight: 243
Reach: 78" (6' 8")
Height: 6' 5"

This guy is a dirty fighter, but a good one. Notice the padding on his head? 
(Some say it makes him a wimp) :)


Nat Daddy
Age: 25
Weight: 265
Reach: 100" (9')
Height: 6' 9"

This guy is VERY tough! With a 9' reach as well!! He is also from Las Vegas, 
Nevada and has tremendous power.

6.) Hints/Tips/Strategy
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Don't just push Buttons
R2RB isn't the type of game where you can just push a whole bunch of buttons and 
win. You are going to have to learn moves and try to remember them and be the 
biggest and best boxer there ever was.
                                                              
Re-Gain health!
When you knock your opponent down, you will see him/her trying to get back up. 
While they are struggling press the A, B, or any of the C buttons repeadetly and 
you will re-gain lost heatlh!

Betting
Be careful when betting. If you think or know you're gonna lose a match, then 
don't go and bet 20 K on it. However, if you've been fighting for a while and 
think you can, by all means bet it all!

Don't forget to block
The Bob and Weave is a good technique to learn if you want to win any titles. 
First give your opponent a jab then block or try and avoid them as much as 
possible.

Watch the Stamina!
Always remember to keep an eye on your stamina meter. Otherwise, if it is near 
empty and you try to do a finishing move, it will do very little damage to your 
opponent. Always let the meter fill up if you are running low.
