Version History ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 12/11/99 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. Damien Black Age: ?? Weight: ?? Reach: ?? Height: ?? No Description ????? Age: ?? Weight: ?? Reach: ?? Height: ??

Well, there are the moves. Again I don't have any for the last 2 characters yet. But I will pretty soon. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 7.)
