When bad girls start wrestling, everybody wants to be the referee

The basic controls are a little stiff, but the throws and holds feel more refined and varied than in the last game. Just punching and kicking your opponent around has an easy, natural feel to it, as does launching boots-first off the turnbuckle. There also appears to be more to the game than just the squared circle, as the single-player mode will let you pick street fights and go shopping for accessories. Other improvements include a Tag Team mode that enables four-way catfights and a wealth of Xbox Live multiplayer options that let you team up against another tag team, gang up on a single opponent or just start a battle royale.

  1. And also unsettlingly broad shoulders
  2. Customize your wrestlers with garish fetish costumes. Do maids always beat up schoolgirls?
  3. Humiliate your opponent! Flash her panties at the audience while doing harm to the rest of her
  4. Your opponent needs to mash buttons to squirm out or she'll forfeit the match
  5. This meter will ... wait, does this say "body danger!" or "daddy?"

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
