All ClassicGameStore games are tested before being taken into our inventory.

"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... Let's Get Ready to Rumble!" calls renowned ring announcer Michael Buffer to start one of the most impressive boxing video games on the market. Ready 2 Rumble takes full advantage of the Dreamcast's advanced technology, and it shows. Each boxer, be it a gorgeous female pugilist or a towering wall of muscle, is beautifully animated in 3-D: watch Tank Thrasher's enormous gut jiggle and bounce as he's knocked to the mat, or see fighters wince when hit or smugly grin when they land a hard punch. Or feel the action with the optional Jump Pack as your controller shakes with each punch and knockdown. The Dreamcast smoothly integrates all of these enhancements while maintaining a high frame rate. The result: Ready 2 Rumble is an incredibly fun game that delivers a knockout punch.

By far, the best feature of the game is the variety of boxers--20 in all--representing a range of personalities and abilities. Afro Thunder, for example, is a trash-talking, Chris Rock-sounding fighter with a repertoire of ring speed, quick jabs, and over-the-top hooks, while Butcher Brown is a heavy-handed thug built like a dump truck. There's something for everyone, with many nationalities, genders, and fighting styles represented. Since each fighter has different speed, reach, and moves, there is a pleasant amount of depth to the game.

Ready 2 Rumble offers two different game modes: Arcade and Championship. Arcade mode is for one or two players, and is simply a series of boxing matches. The single-player option pits you against a computer-controlled opponent, while the two-player format lets you and a buddy hammer it out. Championship mode puts you in charge of your own boxing gym. You start the game with three rookie fighters, facing off in second-rate gyms, and it's your job to train them in hopes of reaching the championship bout.

Championship mode also lets you access Ready 2 Rumble's most innovative feature: the ability to pit your prized fighters against boxers from a friend's gym through the Visual Memory Unit. Just save your stable of boxers onto the VMU and then use it in a buddy's Dreamcast, where you can fight an exhibition match against one of his or her boxers, or arrange a trade. The VMU also lets you save your progress. Without it, all your boxers (and all the secret characters you've managed to unlock) are erased when you turn off the console. But then again, if you've got Ready 2 Rumble, it's unlikely that you'll turn off the console anytime soon. --Mike Fehlauer


  • Impressive graphics and boxer animations
  • Variety of personable, quirky, fun boxers
  • Easy-to-learn controls

5.0 out of 5 stars A good start-off game November 26, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When the Nintendo 64 came out on the shelves, Super Mario 64 was THE game to get, kind of like a game to get you acquainted with the nintendo 64 controller and the console itself. Now the dreamcast is here, and this game "Ready 2 Rumble Boxing" is the best game to start off with. This is the best to game to get you to understand the controller a little better, as well being a part of the great graphics of Dreamcast. IF you are already acquainted with the system, than anyone who likes boxing should LoVe this game. With its' hard knocking punnches and super fast movements. This game definately is a lot better than Knockout Kings 2000 for Nintendo 64 and I recommend this game highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars A great TWO-player game! October 24, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
R2R Boxing is a very fun two player game... maybe the best "party game" out so far for the Dreamcast. The boxers have great character, look beautiful, animate smoothly, and (most importantly) control perfectly. A five-star game, right? Wrong, because...
As a one-player game, the computer's pathetic AI ruins the fun. A loss to the computer is rare, and the march through the bronze, silver, and gold (equal to easy, medium, and hard) divisions quickly becomes mind-numbingly boring. For single-players, this is a two-star game.
If you know you'll often have human opposition, get this game immediately. If not, avoid... there are too many other superior one-player games out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Friendly Knockout January 17, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ready 2 Rumble is a game that was never supposed to be taken seriously. No serious boxing fan should ever find comfort in this game... Beside its lack of realism, the game suffers from being all too easy to copmlete. Yes, there is a lot of variety, with many characters to play with and train; but after doing so several times at the toughest difficulty level, the game loses its appeal.
However, this game was not supposed to be played conventionaly. Only when played against a human opponent does the magic of the game show - and with ample amounts. Only then can you use all the special moves (especially those meant to tease your opponent) the way they were meant to be used...
After many fun filled evenings, I can personaly testify that Ready 2 Rumble is the best arcade multi player game I have ever seen (and played).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Fighting! August 6, 2000
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ready 2 Rumble is what Mike Tyson's Punchout was 13 years ago. And it has been that long since the last truely fun boxing game. Pairing today's great graphics(at least on Dreamcast)with yesterdays fun equals a great game.
The game has two modes, an Arcade mode and a Championship mode. The Arcade mode is fun when played against another "human" opponent. The 2 player game will give the user more opportunities to taunt, set up for a combo, and go all out. Most people enjoy this type of fighting, infact everyone should. The Championship mode is for the die-hard player who likes to win, win, win. Going into championship mode requires a memory cartridge, and most importantly patience. The road to gold is a long, frustrating, and often dull experience. It is true when you work your way up to Gold status, strategies have to be used. The user finds out more about fighting the computer, really it's just like real boxing(jab, cut the ring off, win by decision). While few have the patience to test their skills against the computer, the die-hard player never really gets that much better especially against a "human" opponent who fights a whole lot different from the computer.
The game has various characters, with interesting backgrounds. We have a retired 21 year old cab driver going up against the Devil himself. Each fighter have different attributes, and using them to their right potential is key. Maybe the only bad thing about the game is the music(endless). But Ready 2 Rumble wins by TKO over any other boxing games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wanna have some fight fun? February 24, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ready to Rumble is a really great game. Very fast and addictive. This game be played with in many ways i.e. competitive with friends or even as a father son moment. It has several levels of exciting play from Bronze to Gold. If you are looking for a fun filled sports game with plenty of laughs then this is for you, and if you have to make a comparrison between this and Knockout kings 2000 then it's RR all the way KOK 2000 will only frustrate you.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Lets get ready to rumble!!" April 24, 2001
By A Customer
Now THIS is a cool game. The graphics are very impressive on the Dreamcast. The boxers rule! A cool example is Afro Thunder, who sounds like a combination of Chris Rock and James Brown. My absolute favorite boxer, and one of my favorie video game characters has got to be Damien Black. First, the guy is 7,3", and is {get this} 500 years old. He is huge, his skin is that zombie-grey type of color, and has quite alot of horns on his head {8 to be exact}. What I'm trying to say is: He's the devil, folks. Also, there is this old british guy from the 1800s. Hes actually quite amusing. There is also this Mike Tyson clone, an ancient Indian {one of the only ones who put up a fight against Damien}, and the Russian guy from Rocky 4. Anyway, this game is really cool, especially on the Dreamcast. My rating: Get it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game for awhile January 22, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
R2R is overall a good game the first couple of days was fun and the champion ship mode is good. But after round 15 in the silver class your charactor can not be nocked down. you can sit there and take 20 hits and loss barley any live. Maybe its a problem with the game, or the company did not intend this but after you reach that point it just gets boring. now if I play that game it is either with a friend or just lifting the weights :). The grafics are good (better then the 64) and the game play is above average. I suggest these games for multiplayer only.
