  1. We found that the need to hammer the A, B, L and R buttons repeatedly did get quite painful after a while. Doubtless fans of the Ready 2 Rumble series will love it though.
  2. A surprisingly good interpretation of its console counterpart. The game's graphics, sound, and gameplay make it a perfect game to take with you anywhere.
  3. The game is more reflexive than cerebral, but still a lot of fun.
  4. For boxing fans - it floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.

    This mediocre conversion is better than the last Game Boy effort, providing gamers with fairly short-lived button-mashing fun.
  6. It combines vibrant colors, fun modes of play, and best of all, large and distinguishable characters.
  7. If multiplayer had been added to this game, I could like it a lot more.
  8. 51
    Not half as fun as the full console versions.
  9. Graphics mean nothing without gameplay, and sadly this is what this game boils down to.
  10. This boxer needs a cut man to throw in the towel immediately.
  11. 35
    The only thing that could have saved this game would have been a link-cable two-player option, and we've been screwed out of that, too.
  12. All the pretty graphics and solid sound in the world can't make up for a boring game with sloppy controls...a sheer waste of time.
