Play as a thug in this urbanized 3D fighting game where your fighting style (from boxing to Bruce Lee's jeet kune do) is as important as your acting skills. The Con takes a fresh approach to the fighting genre with a gambling feature that lets you bet on your own fights... which you can then throw on purpose.
The game plays less like Tekken and more like Don King's Super Punch Out, as you'll get paid dirt if you pull off a flawless victory. By pressing the left shoulder button, you'll watch as your fighter goes through WWF theatrics, and the thumbs up or down meter will give you feedback if the crowd's buying it, which I slowly got used to after some trial and error. Throwing the first 45 seconds of a fight and then bringing out my Bruce Lee was rewarding as I thanked the academy and rolled in the dough. I see potential, as the controls are simple and the gambling is addictive, but a game about how well you get your ass kicked still has me skeptical.
