Product Description

Victorious Boxers boasts a knockout combination of incredible 3-D motion-captured graphics and addictive gameplay. The title introduces gamers to Ippo, who, fresh off of the mean streets, meets an old trainer who puts him in the ring. Gamers must start at the bottom, then earn the right to a pro placement. Eventually, by working up the professional rankings, they may earn a crack at the world champion.

The game differs from other boxing titles in that it offers career progression through constant improvement, and gamers must learn new moves to progress. Listen to your trainer, and he will advise you as each fight progresses. You can take on more than 40 boxers in a huge variety of boxing arenas. See the crowds grow as each fight attracts a larger and larger purse!

5.0 out of 5 stars SO REAL IT HURTS November 10, 2001
The boxing genre has recorded a handful of hits ranging from the age old classic Mike Tysons Punch Out!! to the current heavyweight champion Knockout Kings. If not for Empire Interactive's keen importing eye, what is being heralded as "the most accurate boxing game ever conceived" may not have made the journey to American soil.
Even though it is drawn in a goofy anime style, Victorious Boxers' gameplay is as realistic as it gets. You wont find special moves, a health meter, or any video game fixations in this title. The design reflects the highest degree of realism. If you throw to many punches, you will feel your character tire. If you let your guard down and take to many hits to the head, your character will stagger, and struggle in his delivery. Through precise analog movement, you'll dance, bob, and duck like never before.
All of the punches, including slip jabs and uppercuts, are inplace with a unique delivery system. Depth is also represented with an interesting story mode, and over 40 characters from four different weight divisions.I had the lowest of expectations for Victorious Boxers, but once I got my hands on it I couldn't put it down. I think you will agree this is exactly what the boxing genre needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best boxing game since Punch Out January 25, 2002
Punch Out has always been the king of the Boxing game. It is true we have had Ready to Rumble, George Foreman KO Boxing, HBO Boxing, and more. But none of them ever had the heart or pure joy and difficulty that Punch Out had, until now.
Victoriouse Boxers is based off an Anime or Manga of the same, or similar title. YOu start off as Ippo, a young feather weight trying to discover himself in the world of Boxing. LAter you play as some of the other guys in the same gym and so on. You face many, many boxers, from muscle bound brutes, to speed demons. At first you can rely on just beating into submission but later you need to build skill, I am not kidding when you get to later matches and get beaten within seconds because you don't know how to dodge right.
COntrols are very fluid and easy to master, one little recomendation though, set the left analoge stick to Expert (For full movement) and the L1 button to sway (So basically you hold L1 and use the Analouge to dodge).
The graphics are amazing, and the arenas are very well done to.
The sad thing is though is that this will go overlooked because it has very little advertisment, and even worse came out around the same time as Grand Theft Auto 3, and or FInal Fantasy X.
THis game is highly recomended, and like I said, this is the most fun Boxing game since Punch Out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is real boxing!!!!! October 11, 2002
Hi, I love this game. The most realistic boxing game out there. Your boxer is able to bob and weave, block, duck, slide sideways, jump back and lunge forward. This game is not a button smasher. You must use boxing strategy. Has over 40 fighters. Each with different styles. Keeps records of your boxer. It has a replay save also to watch your best fights. Good graphics. Good controls. This game kills KOK 2002, Mike Tyson boxing, Ready to Rumble, and I'm sure the new Rocky boxing game can't compete with this game either. This game is for TRUE BOXING FANS!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars FOR TRUE BOXING FANS February 3, 2004
Like many other gamers wrote before me, I also had low expectations for this game when I purchased it. Another drawback for me was that I got it used and it didn't have the manual. However, after taking some time to learn the controls, I found the game addictive.
The best feature about the game is that your character does need to use boxing skills to prevail. Some of the opponents are sort of goofy looking, but you tend to overlook that when they start pounding on you in the ring.
I'm in agreement that the inability to block punches takes away from game being near perfect, but for me, Victorious Boxers blows away Knockout Kings. This is coming from a huge EA fan, too.
My PS2 will only play silver-back discs, now. Thank goodness this game is one of the ones I can use. I don't even miss the Knockout Kings 2001/02 I have. Get this game. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than KO Kings 2001 November 20, 2001
By A Customer
(...)This game is probably the best boxing game out right now for the playstation 2 and far surpasses Knockout Kings 2001 which was a huge disappointment. The graphics of the charachters are very well done and the realism of the game is well done as well. When you stagger your opponet he stumbles across the ring and when you knock him down he crumbles to the canvas. The trainer in your corner gives you advice throughout the fight and the more fights you win the more secret features you can unlock. Very realistic, very enjoyable, a worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Boxing Game Ever! October 25, 2002
When I looked at the cover, I knew that this game was good. Indeed, this game delivered a realistic graphics, great player control, and many more.
Here's my comments on VB
Pros: Great graphics, manueverable players, every characters has their unique boxing style.
Cons: Lack of combos, hard bosses
I highly recommend this game to everyone. I'm sure you don't want to miss this one.

Just like the series it's derived from, the story mode of the game pretty much mirrors the sequences of opponents he faces. If you've watched the anime and already know the opponents, it's interesting to see them fight in the game and actually try your hand at beating them. Mashiba has that nasty flicker jab and Hayami has that annoying shotgun punch.
As one reviewer said, set your left analog stick to expert control and use the L1 for sway. You can control Ippo much, much better that was. The default controller settings leave much to be desired. I think most people who complained about the controls never bothered trying to change the settings for them or even the camera angles to suit their fighting style better. After setting the left analog stick to expert and sway to L1, I fought alot better and covered more ground around the ring. Fighting-wise, it's a pretty well balanced game with the standard straights, hooks and uppercuts plus some special moves per boxer. You will do alot of bobbing and weaving in this game as there is an absence of blocking which is too bad as that would've made this game better especially near the last opponents who become very, very challenging. I really, really like this game and recommend others to watch the series to appreciate the game a bit more.
