    A great quality boxing title. It demonstrates the potential of iOS devices well, although it does hammer the iPhone's battery quite significantly after extended sessions.

    This isn't called Virtual Boxing, or Street Boxer, or Extreme Boxing. It's called Real Boxing for a very good reason, and it lives up to its name impeccably well.

    Featuring outstanding visuals, intuitive controls, and gameplay ripped from the ring and crammed into your iDevice, Real Boxing delivers the goods and has the brawn to back it up.

    Although it's not perfect, Real Boxing can indeed be crowned the undisputed king of iOS fighters. True, there's not exactly much competition, but first is first. It'll be very interesting to see what Vivid Games follows up this impressive effort with. Or to put it another way…seconds out.

    Real Boxing is definitely a contender for the most authentic and feature-filled nod to boxing on iOS. But Like an out-of-shape fighter, you can't always rely on many of the game's features. The bugs keep the game from being a knockout.

    Real Boxing looks and plays nicely, but flawed countering and training systems unbalance a promising beat-'em-up.

    Real Boxing wants to be the iPad's answer to Punch-Out for Wii, but instead, well… it just makes me want to go out and buy a copy of Punch-Out for Wii again. Flailing your arms can be plenty of fun, but unless those flails are going to translate into on-screen action 99% of the time, it just ends up feeling like an exercise in futility.
