  1. We have to deduct points for the game's flaccid fighting engine, which looks awfully similar to "Ready to Rumble Boxing" and becomes repetitive after about three bouts. [15 Nov 2002, p.144]
  2. Just another fighting game, with none of the special appeal of a classic like "Street Fighter." The opponents fight in much the same manner with little variation, and even at the higher levels, the game is far too easy.
  3. Completely spoiled by a few major problems, the worst of which makes it possible to get by opponents using only one button.
  4. Rather than being an average game with its share of reasons not to like it, Rocky is a game whose shortcomings are why it isn't a "great" game in its own right.
  5. A title that any Rocky fan (or even boxing fans in general) must have, even if the actual game itself has some pretty nasty flaws.
