A pair of new offerings has gone up on the Xbox Live Marketplace today, as Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has announced on his blog that a demo for Rumble Roses XX has gone up, alongside the belated Perfect Dark Zero Map Pack #1.

The Perfect Dark Zero maps were prematurely announced as being available last week. Now that it's up for real, it includes four new multiplayer maps: Plaza, Trench, Rooftops, and Gas Plant, and sells for 500 Marketplace points ($6.25).

As for Rumble Roses XX, this sequel to the original PlayStation 2 all-female wrestling game was released in March. The game introduces tag-team wrestling to the series, as well as online multiplayer matches. For more on these games, check out GameSpot's final reviews of Perfect Dark Zero and Rumble Roses XX.

The RR XX demo is another example of companies not helping the user at all with the controls. I played for like 10 minutes and had no fricken clue what the controls were. Lots of demos don't give you any clue what the control layout is and you have to stumble around trying to figure it out. I haven't played other wrestling games so no help there. I shouldn't have to download a guide just to know what buttons to push to try a demo. ARG!! Speaking of pushing buttons. They were smart to include a sample of what the photo session mode would be like along with the wrestling. Let's be honest, the kind of gamer who is going to buy this game IS interested in the photo mode.

Wow. Rumble Roses XX is worse than I thought! The women are just ugly (I like the one with black hair the most) and the gameplay is sticky-icky (not in the good way)... New maps for PDZ is sweet, but I hate PDZ :lol:

PDZ is still one awesome FPS. Of course, ppl are still playing it! Can't wait to try the RRXX demo and see what these perverted designers came up with. Some of the wrestling moves look crazy also.

blackIceJoe you do know it took just as long for the Halo 2 maps to get done right? Plus the price ain't bad considering the Halo 2 maps were 2 for 6 bucks. But they did become free (i hope bungie does that again). They are good maps, but they totally said they were bringing a free map and bots yet they brought the bots with this content, so where is the free map?

Wow those maps are expensive. I just wish you didn't have to buy points and just pay the amount needed but it works fine with this sort of purchase but not the oblivion stuff. You have to spend 6 dollars to get something for 2...

The new PDZ maps do offer diversity and the RRXX demo is okay, true that it is focused way heavily on submissions. Controls similar to the Smackdown's games but mapped differently, which took some time to get used to if you're familiar with the Smackdown controls.
