I tried to like this game, I really did. Especially since i spent so much money on it. The main problem wih it is the graphics. They look stupid. I am not sure if they meant for the models to look like monkeys but they do. Also you can punch right through your opponent. My next main problem is in the game play. Its really slow and that made it very hard to enjoy fighting. I have played all the fight games on PS and this is by far the worst of the worst. Now I am sure all you people will bag on me for saying so, but this game is LAME.

This game reminds me of the first Knockout kings from EA Sports 2 years ago, except this game has much more to offer. This game in my opinion is better than Knockout Kings 2001 because there are so many more options here, especially when you get into the career mode. There are so many different features you can add to your fighter when you create him, which is also true of KO Kings. But this game takes it a step further, allowing many additional features that can be added to a fighter such as extra height(A heavyweight here can be listed up to 6'8, unlike the 6'5 limit in KO Kings), more weight, different facial features, different gloves and shoes. All this is nice, but when the game begins its all about gameplay and this game delivers with realistic and exiting action that is comparable to KO Kings. There are a nice selection of combinations that can be thrown, the illegal blows and taunts found on KO Kings are here, and its all pretty straightforward and easy to control. The fighters move fairly fluidly as well and the defensive moves are very realistic. You can also cumstomize the controls so that its easier for you to play. For fans of HBO Boxing, the announcers Jim Lampley/Larry Merchant are here which without question is a step up from the ESPN announcers found on KO Kings. There is also nice selection of fighters here including Roy Jones Jr. who isnt featured in Ko Kings. There are more venues here, Ballys Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Hilton are just a couple that are featured here, and not on Ko Kings. And you can play a single elimination tournament here which is a nice feature. I have only played the game a few times and already I am very impressed with it.Read more ›

I have never played a video game with as much flexibility and control for boxing. The characters look pretty good for a PS1 title. But, if you are a boxing fan, this is it. It is one of the best "Build your own character" Ive ever used with the ability to do inter-racial heritage mixing. You can move and block and punch all at once. I've played the Contender, Knockout Kings, Mike Tyson, Punch Out, Ring King, this is definitely my favorite. They didn't really work too much on intros and victories though, which is what would be nice. But the game itself in play is definitely the best.

Jerry Pournelle its called personal opinion. You seem to be the only one here who doesnt like the game. I personally think its a good solid boxing game with a wide selection of options and it is without a doubt the best boxing simulation for the playstation right now. Knockout Kings put out another terrible effort this year and this game without question has tons of features that knockout kings lacks. the fighter selection is as good or better than knockout kings, the game play is miles above knockout kings and the commentary is done by the best in the business unlike the horrible second rate announcing done on knockout kings. its a fun game with a ton of options and any intelligent real fight fan would be pleased with it. the create a career mode is beyond anyting electronic arts boxing games have ever featured. you see jerry? its called a review...try growing a brain and see if you can write a reasonable, intelligent review based on the pros and cons of the game because by ripping apart others reviews without giving a single reason why you didnt like it makes you look awfully foolish. no one forced you to buy the game buddy, if you dont like it, try ready 2 rumble, a game that doesnt take as much intelligence to play, that may be more to your liking.

This is a very well thought out game. First of all, I like the variety of styles you can pick when creating a boxer as well as the realism of the career mode. The only bad thing about the game is its somewhat limited graphics and gameplay. As far as gameplay, it needs to be tweaked a little bit. It's like they got the majority of the game and left out some small specifics such as the announcing. I hope someone can recreate this for ps2 and get the full effect of the graphics and gameplay because if the small defects are fixed, knockout kings won't be the best boxing game for playstation.
