    PS2 online has all of the aforementioned flaws and is an overall nightmarish experience and should be avoided at all costs.
  2. It does trip up on the lack of impact that a connect punch delivers, and the obvious inclusion of health/stamina bars, but for gamers not yet tainted by the phenomenal experience of Round 3 on Xbox 360, this won't be something that they'll worry about.

The movement is sluggish, every fighter plods like a snail and a boxer that is punched does not freeze for a couple of seconds as it does here. DO NOT listen to the favourable reviews elsewhere or purchase this blatant cashin, buy the 2004 version. Full Review »
