game review: Developed jointly by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo and wrestling game developer Yuke’s, Rumble Roses is a powerhouse combination with intense wresting action, sexy female models, audacious poses and bold moves – all delivered with state-of-the-art graphics. Rumble Roses also features an advanced combat system that allows players to develop unique styles for their wrestlers. Players are able to change the personalities of their wrestlers through their actions in the ring, which then translates into changes in costume, attitude, and wrestling style options. Insults and taunts prove a lot more important here than in your typical wrestling title too, and many of the maneuvers are said to leave opponents in, what we will call, “compromising positions”.
