Joystick (French) (Feb, 1991)
Superbement animées, les catcheuses sont également parfaitement maniables, le seul problème résidant dans la langue qui là encore est le japonais. Mais avec un petit peu d'habitude, on apprend vite les bonnes positions et comment les réaliser avec le joystick. Ringside Angel est une très bonne alternative à tous les Shoot'Em Ups qui sévissent sur cette machine.
Génération 4 (Feb, 1991)
C'est à mon avis le plus amusant et le plus simple à utiliser. Ici aussi, toutes sortes de prises sont possibles, et vous avez la possibilité de vous battre hors du ring.
Sega Pro (UK) (Mar, 1992)
Cute pictures of Japanese girlies still don't make this a beat-'em-up worth purchasing. Sadly, the many moves are very hard to access which makes the game very off-putting for most players. Still, if you like weird covers on import games, this one should brighten up your shelf.
Raze (May, 1991)
There's a wide variety of girls to choose, from the pretty to those that look like a bulldog chewing a wasp. The graphics are adequate, although nothing special, the animation is lousy and the sound will drive you nuts. It's a pity the game is so unplayable, as the novelty aspect alone deserves attention.

Overall, Cutie Suzuki no Ringside Angel was a pleasant surprise. Once you get past its simple graphics and adapt to its quirks, there is a surprisingly fun, challenging wrestling game there. Admittedly, it would never have sold outside of Japan. Wrestling games were still niche titles in 1990, and an average looking women’s wrestling game wouldn’t have changed that. Still, this game is an interesting footnote for Asmik, who would go on to publish Virtual Pro Wrestling 1 and 2, games that would form the basis for the AKI N64 WWF/WCW wrestling classics.
Power Play (Mar, 1991)
Ringside Angels hat außer dem "Sowas gibt's wirklich?"-Effekt wenig zu bieten. Das hektische Herumgefuchtel mit dem Joypad, um der Gegnerin mit dem Schwitzkastengriff zuvorzukommen, hat wenig spielerischen Tiefgang und läßt dem Zufall viel Spielraum. Auch der hartnäckige Voyeur wird wenig befriedigt, denn die im naiven Stil gehaltenen Damen verströmen nicht mal eine laue Brise Lolita-Erotik.

I heard someone say that this game was the Rumble Roses of its day. If this applies to the fact that it’s a game about female wrestling sporting awkward controls, I agree. However, the presentation of it all is extremely lacking, even for early 16-bit standards. Apart from its novelty factor (with its all-female cast and the gimmick cover), this game has nothing to offer, even for the most diehard of console wrestling fans. Not even aficionados of female fighters will get enough cheesecake factor to really enjoy this. Tyris Flare of Golden Axe fame had more to offer, and that game was release two years prior to Ringside Angel! With its bad gameplay, bad graphics and bad sound, this title about female wrestlers truly deserves to remain in obscurity. Getting the game is not recommended unless you are an avid collector or some strange fetishist who gets off on highly pixilated navel shots.
