Slam Fighter II got a nice writeup in Siliconera.
Slam Fighter II follows six trash-talkers as they insult their way to The Philosopher’s Burn, the most powerful put-down known to man. To defeat one another, players will have to help their chosen fighter come up with clever insults based on the size of the available word and the beat of the music. If players can type out a real-world insult to the tune of the music, they’ll damage their opponent, working towards crushing their spirit with words.
Players will need to get used to the nuances of each character, as all six of them offer different strengths that can offer players different advantages or problems. Players can also test these skills against a real-world opponent, battling against another local player to see who can deliver the most devastating insults.
