User Reviews

supremely enjoyable!
30 August 2000 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

A truly excellent and enjoyable piece of entertainment!

A battle of skill, design, tactic, intelligence and raw robot power. Very fast-paced and dynamic, with no useless and vulgar theatrics typical of american "wrestling" shows.
