  1. It provides a great looking, challenging boxing title which has enough challenges and difficulties to keep you coming back to get drilled on some more.

    Artificial intelligence could be improved, with obvious gaffes affected by opposing boxers in the heat of battle, but overall, it's no slouch.
  3. A good improvement over previous renditions of the game. I wouldn’t put it in the same class as Madden but it is a quality video game that fighting/boxing fans should investigate.
  4. Looks great, plays very well, and offers enough of a challenge to last a while, which adds up to make Knockout Kings 2003 a must-own for any fight fan.
  5. The wisely balanced sim and arcade elements are combined with fantastic presentation to make for a very slick package that boxing fans will enjoy.
  6. This was just better than 2002. Now all I need is a better boxer creator and punch stats. [Nov 2002, p.132]
  7. Personally I'd rather face 15 rounds with Mike Tyson than play this again.

    I think it is a good video game to play because it has impresive graphics and a very big selection of fighters.
