    I pity the fool who doesn't at least consider renting it.
  2. I didn't think a side-scrolling boxing game would work in this day and age, but Rocky comes through as a solid, if unspectacular, GBA title. [Jan 2003, p.122]
  3. Overall I was quite impressed. I would very much like to see another game like it, but with a lot more difficulty.
  4. After each match, you can undergo training and build your fighter's strength, stamina and endurance. [Feb 2003, p.162]
  5. Rocky isn't a great boxing game, and it doesn't quite deliver the same level of excitement as the films it's based on.
  6. In light of Rocky for the big three consoles and titles like "Knockout Kings," it's disheartening to see the art of boxing reduced to such a trivial exercise.
  7. The combination of slow and sloppy gameplay and an unusual assortment of bugs makes it impossible to play this game with any kind of skill or strategy.
