  1. After a short amount of time, you’ll get used to the game and from this point on, it is very entertaining. You should take a look at this title, even if you are not a boxing-fan.

    Apart from the difficulty, this is a solid purchase if you’re looking for a boxing sim on the go that has really stayed true to the spirit of the DS. This is the sort of game that, if it had come out during the handheld’s infancy, game journos would have been praising for its use of the touch screen.

    Don King Boxing won't rumble the world, but it's a solid effort with some great controls.

    Don King Boxing is a nice first effort on DS, and a game that does a lot of things very well considering the limitations of the platform. Touch-based boxing is accurate and fun, the overall presentation is decent, and the feeling of first-person, 3D brawling is surprisingly visceral and effective.
