Rumble Roses XX review

The girls-only wrestling game every red-blooded male will want, but will never play in mixed company


  • Stone-cold honeys with few inhibitions
  • Looks like no other hot-bod sim out there
  • Full online support


  • Could use more girls and moves
  • No single-player story mode
  • Roses look way better than they sound

Many of us here at GamesRadar are still scratching our heads at the popularity of TV shows like "Dancing with Celebrities" and "Skating with the Stars". But we'd totally tune in for "Wrestling with Porn Stars". We can't, because it obviously doesn't exist (at least, untilsomeone from ABC reads this), but you can pretty much play it in the form of Rumble Roses XX. If you've ever looked at a Victoria's Secret catalog or gone to Hooters and thought, "You know, this would be so much cooler if these impossibly sexy babes were beating the crap out of one another," this wrestler-turned-skinfest is your game.

This is especially true if you then added, "and would it kill them to constantly force each other into positionsso compromising theywouldmake a stripper blush?" These gals are driven by an insatiable bloodlust, and neither modesty nor a distinct lack of clothing can stop them from satiating it. Thus, if victory can only be achieved holding your opponent upside-down for several seconds, legs splayed and thong-clad booty fully on display - and apparently, that's often the case - that's what they'll do.

It's a devotion to craft rarely seen in today's world, and anyone who finds the female form stimulating will likely find a certain appeal to this attitude. However, if you're looking for a deep wrestling game full of sophisticated grappling and advanced strikes, you may want to wait for a true WWE game to appear on 360. As enticing as many of these girls' jiggling bitch-slaps and gyrating submission holds are, you'll probably find yourself wishing they each had a few more from which to choose.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
