  1. Captures the intensity of boxing and the enjoyment of the movies in a remarkable manner.
  2. There's no limit to the replay value here, unless you just flat out don't like the game or its multiplayer mode.
  3. The challenge is tough too. You'll be hard pressed to make it though the movie mode on normal difficulty without a good number of continues.
  4. The game even has a meat locker training scene and play control that rivals that of the Knockout Kings series. [Nov 2002, p.222]
  5. Aside from these occasional moments of ludicrously unbalanced fighting, Rocky is a very fun boxing game that does require a good amount of skill to master.
  6. 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.
  7. 40
    Chief among the defects of Rocky is that despite the game's well-conceived interplay of jabs, uppercuts, blocks, power-punches and what have you, it's too easy to cheap-shot your way to victory.
