Ready 2 Rumble on Sega Dreamcast

Here is why the Sega Dreamcast is legendary.  Ready 2 Rumble was always more of a college party game - with copious amounts of pizza and alcohol - than a technical fighter, or even Nintendo's Punch Out.  It was easy to grasp and fun to play and always good for a laugh.  Here is one of Midway's arcade classics.

Atari Interactive released a Wii sequel, Ready 2 Rumble Revolution, early in 2009.  It's a lousy game, best forgotten, lacking all the charm and the soul of the Midway original.  Avoid it at all costs; better yet, find yourself a Dreamcast and play the original.
