Es ist eine Schande, was AKI und Atari mit Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution der Serie angetan haben, die mich und einige meiner Kumpels damals auf Segas Dreamcast noch so gut unterhalten hat. Doch von der alten Faszination ist bis auf das Buffer'sche "Lets get ready to rumble" nichts mehr übrig geblieben: Angefangen bei den witzlosen und langweilig animierten Pseudo-Karikaturen über die bescheidene Präsentation bis hin zur grausamen Synchronisation ist dieses Machwerk ein Schlag ins Gesicht all derer, die die Vorgänger geliebt haben. Wie kann man denn bloß eine so dermaßen miese und ungenaue Steuerung verbrechen und einem gleichzeitig Gegner vor die Nase setzen, die einen selbst in niedrigen Stufen nach Strich und Faden vermöbeln? Dieses Ready 2 Rumble lässt nicht wieder den Spaß vergangener Tage aufleben, sondern ist eine einschläfernde, witzlose Frustpackung, bei der die Kontrolle über die Akteure zum reinen Glücksspiel wird. Finger weg!

Ready 2 Rumble Revolution is literally a hit-and-miss. The game’s controls aren’t nearly as precise as they need to be and the motion controls are sometimes a little too complicated. Looking past the controls though, Ready 2 Revolution is certainly a fairly decent game. The game runs smoothly and the wide array of moves is certainly a welcome addition. When everything is said and done though, the controls destroy all this good work and the end result is a piece of software that simply doesn't entertain. Stick with the Dreamcast version!

The most frustrating aspect of Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution is that the fundamentals are in place for an engaging arcade boxer. With a wide assortment of both offensive and defensive moves, a training program that lets you beef up your attributes however you desire, and a ton of unlockables to customize your character, this has the makings of a solid, fun experience. But the controls are just too awful to overcome. Any fighting depth is stripped away because you are unable to pull off moves with any sort of precision, which turns matches into monotonous tests of waggle endurance. Even your training regimen is hampered because only a few different modes--and therefore only a few of your attributes--can be completed with any sort of reliability. Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution enters the ring with tons of potential, but terrible controls deliver the knockout punch.

Ready 2 Rumble Revolution isn't one of the worst looking games on the Wii, but it certainly is one of the worst playing games on the system. Any potential the game design has is totally thrown out the window because the developers insisted on Wii motion control that required far more out of the remote and nunchuk than what they're capable of pulling off. It's an unnecessarily frustrating experience trying to work your way through the ranks – you'll be fighting the controls more than you're fighting the characters.

Ready 2 Rumble Revolution has botched controls, faulty technology and unsympathetic style, but I suspect there's a half-decent arcade fighter residing somewhere underneath it all. Even if there is, though, it'll need to go back to the gym for some serious work before showing its face in the ring again. As it is, it dances like a buffalo and stings like wet cabbage.

Ready 2 Rumble est une série qui a profondément marqué l'histoire des jeux de boxe mais ce troisième opus est loin d'être à la hauteur de ses aînés. Son gameplay catastrophique risque de vous fâcher sérieusement avec votre Wiimote et votre Nunchuk.

Ready 2 Rumble used to be a great, fun series, but Atari’s insistence on updating the game’s controls for the waggle-generation has all but broken it. From the offensive characters to the horribly sloppy control scheme, there are almost no redeeming qualities here. Do yourself a favor, and stick with the boxing mode in Wii-Sports.

This is an avoid at all costs game that, while looking good, is actually a poorly put together game that would have benefited from being a push button controlled game rather than a motion controlled game on the Wii. It is a shame that a game with such great pedigree has sullied it’s ancestry for the sake of a few bucks. This was one of the few genres of gaming where the motion controlled system should work without any issues, in the end it was an utter disgrace.

Ready 2 Rumble Revolution leaves me with an interesting problem, I simply can't think of a single good thing to say about it. I suppose you can use it to test your Wii, but even that will send you into a rage over what this long-awaited sequel could have been. Instead of another great arcade-style boxing game, we get the worst fighting game since Mortal Kombat Advance. Whatever you do, avoid Ready 2 Rumble Revolution at all cost!
