Pretty good visuals, good smack-talk, hopefully the gameplay (arena and managerial) will be good, too. I want it! :D

Hey Woocifer here is a little description on Deathrow.:) I always loved this game the first time I heard about it.

Description.
Deathrow pits two teams in a no-limits, no-honor, total-aggression arena battle where only the hardest fists, the meanest moves, and the deadliest throws will get you victory. This could get ugly. Fast. Can you take the punishment?

it's a futuristic game about some sort of arena ball sport totally invovling combat, kinda like rollerball (i think). Either way, this game is definetly showing promise!

Itsa game where you play as one of 18 teams in one of 32 different arenas, tossing a disc into a goal to score, or severely injure every player on the other team so as to eliminate them and win that way...ive been waiting for a long time for this game. 9 more days only! Check your store shelves on the 23rd!

IGN gives it a 9.3, if reviews maen anything to 'ya.

"Deathrow does something most games of this type can't manage -- it's its own sport. While Deathrow can be likened to other sports, there's no direct comparison. The varied arenas are great, the gameplay is challenging and the Conquest mode will have you playing Deathrow into the chilly winter. For a game that's gotten little press, this could be a sleeper hit. It's certainly a sleeper in terms of quality. My only hope is Deathrow does well enough to merit a sequel that uses Xbox Live. For a game that's probably meant to be a multiplayer smacktalk fest, I've found the Conquest mode to be far more interesting. I'm hooked and I won't stop playing for a long, long time.
What is Deathrow? Pure joy."



Presentation
Tons of teams, arenas, players, fighting moves, and curse words. Could have used some bigger end-game celebrations and fanfare, but solid overall. 9.0
Graphics
Great lighting and amazing textures blend with fluid animations and some smrt arena designs. 8.0
Sound
Great use of 5.1 and of course, all those swear words. Broken bones, the F-word, and customizable soundtracks. Yum! 9.0
Gameplay
Easy controls and subtle depth that will have you playing and learning for weeks and even months. If only there was online play. 9.0
Lasting Appeal
A ton to unlock. Just the single-player alone will take a serious chunk of hours. Throw in a solid multiplayer experience and this game may never end. 10.0
OVERALL SCORE (not an average) 9.3

was it Paul Balloff that you knew? he was the original singer, but died recently...cancer i believe. Testament's singer also had cancer of the throat, but they got that pretty much cleared up.
It realy sucks that Paul died, and I dont mean anything against Paul, but I did prefer Steve Souza as a singer...he was with Testament and Exodus...
