I dont think its a fighting game. Go to Google and search for "Deathrow XBox". Instant results.

It's kind of fighting, I think the best thing to relate it to would be Rollerball since you basically knock the snot out of your opponents, score points, and keep playing. It's a good game for 15 bucks if you can find it still, but if someone wants more than that for it, I'd pass.

It's actually a very good game. It got a ton of excellent reviews, but it didn't sell well for some reason (poor marketing, I think). You should do some research on the game, check out some of the reviews. It's a futuristic sports game in which you're trying to throw a disk through a goal while punching, tackling, and kicking your opponents. There are power-ups scattered around the arenas, lots of different opponent teams and arenas to choose from, and ... well, it's just good, clean fun.

That and don't forget the swearing kinda takes the "clean" out of it...

Still i give it a high score.. Controls have a little learning curve in "sports View" but the is a more platform style of camera too. Good fun, lots to unlock, and some nice Audio/Visual work.

Produced by SouthEnd and Published by UbiSoft. . . Good stuff.
Screenshots etc at: http://www.southend-interactive.com/

I found it very underrated, can't believe more people don't play it. (That and GunValkyrie)

Oh yeah, I know, I was being kind of facetious. The swearing is unique -- "I'm gonna smash your f*ing head in," "Motherf*er," etc. You can't turn it off, so if little kids are in the house, it may not be a good choice. I think the swearing adds a lot to the game, and a lot of the time it cracks me up.

I bought it for $50 and consider the money well-spent. I had a lot of fun with this game. I've been too busy playing the new games to go back to it, but it's definitely earned a place in my collection (and I'm picky). If you can get it for $20, it's a great deal.

It's too bad it didn't sell very well, since a Live sequel would be a lot of fun.

I hear ya... Live would be sweet. . . .

Oh and I can't remember but couldn't you just turn the volume of the Voice down to zero? I seem to think there _was_ an option somewhere.. But Much like Arven, I'm too busy with others at this moment to get back to it.. . .Darn KOTOR. . .
