  1. A few improvements could have been made to increase the game’s longevity, but for a first strike this is an excellent outing. Fighters should lace up their gloves and go a few rounds with this game, just don’t get knocked to the floor.
  2. 35
    Showtime Championship Boxing is a bad game because it lacks depth, is ugly and easy to exploit. At the same time, I couldn’t help but enjoy myself as I beat down fighter after fighter.
  3. Hmm, a punch to the groin or one more round of this DS boxing game? Hang on, we're still thinking.
  4. Ugly, repetitive and a waste of the license. It's not quite "Balls of Fury" bad, but getting there. Punch-drunk and pointless. [Feb 2008, p.64]
