The Good: The production quality, fights, and recognizable fighters get better with each event. Notable names from Pride and the UFC show up more and more frequently (Penn,Gomi,Gracie's,Tank,Cabbage,Kimo,Trigg,Silva etc.). Hawaiian rules allow for knees on the ground, ouch. Lot's of fights, each event about 2 hrs. each. Great value.
The Bad: Still nowhere near Pride/UFC quality dvd's (better than King of the Cage dvd's). Early events are mostly unfamiliar Hawaiian fighters (granted the event is in Hawaii) that aren't all that great and make for some lackluster fights. The referee makes some questionable calls. He'll stop the fight alot to check cuts that aren't that bad and stand up fights when there's action on the ground. He looks like a poor mans John McCarthy.
The Ugly: The commentary on ROTR 4 is absolutley awful, among the worst I've ever heard, but it get's better with each event. The atrocious editing and camera work in ROTR 6. In the main event Penn vs. Gracie, the camera man moves from the fight, not once but TWICE to see a fight in the audience when the main event fight is still going!!! And the fight before that one has a great TKO finish but we don't get to see it as we're given a nice shot of the referees butt in front of the action. Both of these screw ups thanks in part to the wise decision to have only one camera shooting the action. Can you say amateur hour? The pre fight interviews on ROTR 7 are hilariously bad too.
The Verdict: I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I fist popped in ROTR 4. The audio/video quality was terrible, the majority of the fights were no names and boring and I thought I'd been suckered in to buying a KOTC clone. But the events, fights, and production quality really do get better with each event. I'll save you some time on ROTR 4, just watch the Paul Buentello fight and the Penn/Gomi main event. The Penn/Gomi fight is awesome and one of the better fights you'll find anywhere. The price saves this set and warrants a recommendation. If it cost much more, the rating would only go down.
