Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Arch Rivals
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Midway/Acclaim
RELEASED:         1987
TYPE:             Sports (basketball)
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          A tongue-in-cheek homage to the in-your-face style of
                  basketball played nowadays.  Ported from the arcade game.

IMPRESSIONS:      Fairly decent, but the emphasis seems to be more on fouls
                  and cheap shots than on actual gameplay.  The missed
                  calls and rather physical style of play are nice touches,
                  to be sure, but that's not what the game of basketball is
                  supposed to be about.

Fouls and dirty play are what this game is supposed to be about--have you never played the arcade version?
