Don King Boxing is a solid boxing game. As you progress in your quest for more wins, you unlock boxers to fight in Classic Fights and get to use them in exhibition. The most notable boxers are Leon Sphinx, Joe Frasier, Joe Louis and Rocky Marciano.

There are four mini games to include jumping rope, heavy bag, speed bag, and focus mitts. 2 of the games use the X, Y, A, B buttons and the focus mitts and 2 use the stylus. As you beat tasks with the speed bag, jump rope, heavy bag and boxing mitts, you can add 10 points to 4 characteristics of your boxer - making him a formidable fighter. There is no way to add more points once you have performed the milestones of the different skills. This takes a lot of hand eye coordination and there is a pattern to the various tasks. The boxing mitts, heavy bag and speed bag are the easiest whereas jump rope requires multiple button pushes which are more challenging.

The theme music is the same but catchy. On Career Mode, you get to hear the Rocky theme. Practice mode allows you to learn the basic movements around the ring, dodging, blocking, uppercuts, super moves, jabs, straight punches and combinations.

This is a 1st person perspective where you visualize your gloves and face your opponent. Surprising, you have a lot of control to move around the ring (I try to corner my opponent as I pummel him with punches). You can adjust your level for easy, medium or hard. There is a learning curve to being able to box and block so use the practice mode. I highly recommend training your boxer for every opportunity to increase your attributes by 10 points.

Graphics are good for a DS game. I was playing it on a DSi so I noticed none of the 'slowdown' in the heat of battle, as I have heard from some people.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I usually stick to the playstation and PSP for playing games, but figured I'd try out the Nintendo DSi. There is no Fight Night title for the DSi, so I figured I'd check out this Don King boxing game. I'm surprised to find that the game is very fun to play. It has a few drawbacks, but otherwise, I would recommend you give it a try.

The punch controls are great. The screen is split up in four sections and each section represents left and right head punches or left and right body punches. You tap the stylus in one of the four areas for a straight punch or jab, move it left to right for a hook, or up for an upper cut. I have found that the controls are not only easy, but pretty accurate as well. You use the L button to block. You can also use the directional buttons to move around the ring.

What is good about the first person perspective on this game, is also what's bad. When playing games on the Fight Night franchise, you see your boxer, the full body. This is a first person perspective where you are shown the angle of facing your opponent, and you can only see your gloves. The good thing is you can see your punches land easier. The bad thing is that you cannot see where you are being hit, so it's harder to block or cover up. Also, because you only see the gloves, it appears a bit more sloppy because most of the time the gloves don't even appear to be attached to any body at all, they are cut off before the elbows even. Yet, this does not make the game any less fun.

I find the game challenging, and the more you practice your punches, the better you get. You could find yourself having hours and hours of fun with this game. You get to unlock different opponents in the game as you progress.

I purchased this game for my nine year old son and he loves it. Normally he enjoys the football and basketball games, but I wanted him to explore other available games so I purchased him this boxing game. He is very happy that I did!!!
