Product Description

Get it On with the GREATEST, real boxers real boxing action past and present champions acrcade style nmode, enhanced career mode the best fights

Amazon.com

While it never quite achieves Muhammad Ali-like greatness, Knockout Kings 2000 is nonetheless an excellent boxing game for both the enthusiast and the casual gamer. Fifty boxing legends from the past and present are featured in this EA Sports title, along with world-famous arenas and TV-style coverage. In addition to being able to set up your own fights in the standard exhibition mode, you can play out nine of the greatest boxing matches in history in the game's classic mode. And for those interested in less realism and more pugilism, slugfest mode offers over-the-top, arcade-style boxing.

The real crowd pleaser here is Knockout Kings 2000's career mode. Choosing from a wide variety of options, you get to create your own custom boxer, who can fight his way to the top in career mode or participate in exhibition and slugfest matches. Before career fights, customized boxers can be improved by training, or playing various mini-games. (A memory card is required to save custom boxer data.)

What robs Knockout Kings 2000 of the championship belt is its unbalanced 3-D graphics. The boxers look great and move fluidly, but everything else appears flat and unfinished. Thankfully, fast game speed and responsive controls clamp down on the sightseeing, which is one sure-fire way to end up KO'd. --Joe Hon

Pros:

  • Can create your own custom boxer
  • Features realistic and arcade-style boxing
  • Fast game speed and responsive controls
  • Optional 1-button mode for those who don't want to memorize controls
Cons:
  • Except for the boxers, graphics aren't very pretty

I have been a boxing fanatic for 16 years and have played every boxing game. The only game prior to Knockout Kings 2000 that gave me a real feeling of being in the ring was 4D Boxing for the PC. I bought the first KNockout Kings with great anticipation but was dissapointed by the gameplay. For one thing you could not throw a left hook unless you were inside in which case the jab button turns into the hook button. Plus the computer decided which hand you would throw the punch with. Also the movement of the fighters was very choppy and tough to control. I only mention these weaknesses because Knockout 2000 KOs all of them! The game is fluid, each punch has its own button and the controls are perfect. I tip my hat to the devopers for truly imroving on the first game. As for the clod who could this boring and Ready to Rumble a better game, I suggest that when you become an adult you may see that this game is far superior because unlike Ready to Rumble you have to think and thus it never gets boring. In fact the more I played the better it got because you become more accustomed to the controls.

Overall, Knockout Kings 2000 is a disappointment. Although the selection of boxers has improved--like the addition of Sugar Ray Robinson and Joe Frazier, the boxing action has taken a step backwards from its predecessor, Knockout Kings. In that game, a fight could end at any moment with one good punch, and the action wasn't as frenetic--like regular boxing. Here, to make it more "exciting", the programmers simply turned it into a glorified karate punching game with loads and loads of punches being landed. The computer does not improvise any strategies, and hence all the fighters seem the same on computer mode. When it's energy is low, it covers up. When yours is low, even if the computer's is, it comes out you--and is easy to knock out every time. Better to hold off and wait for Mike Tyson Boxing from Activision which promises more realism and strategies. Hey EA Sports--where are Gerry Cooney, Jerry Quarry, Thomas Hearns, Roy Jones, Prince Naseem Hamed, George Foreman (a young and older version), Riddick Bowe, and Kid Gavilan? Put some more classic fighters in there as well!

If you liked KO Kings you will love KO Kings 2000. There are more classic fighters to choose from, the game is more challenging than the original KO Kings, and the career mode lets you create a fighter, train him, and work him up to a level where he is able to challenge the great fighters of all time. Fighters move much more fluidly in this game and the sound effects are much improved as well. All time great fighters such as Ali and Frazier are recreated perfectly and this adds to the games realism. Classic fights mode allows you to take part in one of 9 of the top fights of all time. This game never gets boring, its alot of fun.

A very solid second effort by EA Sports with their sequel to the original "Knockout Kings." KOKings 2000 offers many inprovements over the original KOKings. Generally the graphics are better, more detailed. Also, the movement of the fighters is more fluid and realistic. For example, when you're on the verge a knocking your opponent down, often you'll see his mouthpiece go flying. Also, the venues are more detailed and realistic. To me , this is important but the "big fight" atmosphere really adds to the realism. Caesar's Palace looks just like the real thing--you can even see the hotel in the background! Unfortunately, Madison Sqaure Garden, the MGM Grand, and other "Big Time" boxing venues are missing this version. Another big improvement is the addition of "Classic Fight" mode. Want to re-fight the "Thrilla in Manilla?" You can here. The only negative is that the fight takes place in the "EA Sports Arena" rather than the original venue, Quezon City Sports Arean. This is true of all the fights in the "Classic Fight" mode. And some classic fights are totally missing--what happened to the "Rumble in the Jungle" (Foreman vs. Ali, 1974). This is one of the greatest fights of all time yet its missing. Must have been a licensing issue with Foreman--he's one of the few big-time heavyweights that's not included in this game. All in all, a good solid effort by EA Sports, great for the serious boxing fan who wants a GOOD BOXING SIMULATION WHICH INVOLVES SOME ACTUAL STRATEDGY

This is the first Knockout Kings game that I have bought and it was initially on the strength of controlling Muhhamed Ali, but I have found this to be an entertaining and challenging game. I especially like the career mode, where you can build you boxer from scratch. Here's a hint try and distribute as evenly as possible amoungst the attributes, because they all come in handy. Re--creating the old time fights and the ability to control sucj stars and Lennox Lewis and Rocky Marciano are a treat for any boxing fan. This rating system alotted me only 5 stars but I would give it a 10!

I have been following boxing for about 18 years and even boxed amateur. I was watching when Macho Camacho was 6-0 and being featured on an undercard of a regular network boxing event- you know, the kind before pay-per-view. I watched not only Hagler-Hearns (I think it was this fight) but also the undercard which to me was the greatest fight of all time even if the fighter I was pulling for lost - Wilfredo Gomez-Lupe Pintor.
So, I know a little about what I speak. I guess I use too much strategy when I play, because I always go to the body before going to the head. I always wear a guy down - "Kill the Body, and the head will follow".
Minuses 1. I was very disappointed that even after you wear a fighter down by reducing his stamina, they were still able to throw combinations and flurries constantly. Not very realistic.
2. I am very disappointed that you have to press four buttons very, very quickly to throw a combination. I am sure the computer does not have this problem judging from the amounts it throws.
3. I am very disappointed that when you start a combination or a flurry, the computer can stop you in your tracks with a punch while you do not have the ability to do so... usually, after he starts a combination, you cannot get a punch off until he is through punching.
4. I am very disappointed that you can max out your speed and power on career mode and someone like Marlon Wayans of all people still hit as hard as you. He's a comedian for crying out loud. You should knock him out with the first punch you throw. You also get beat to the punch in many fights even with 100 in speed.
5. If you have ever paid attention to the punch stats, you will find that the other guy hits on about 90-95% of his punches.
