  1. If you tough it out, there are rewards. Just be ready to bleed. [July 2002, p.82]
  2. With precious little true depth and a distinct lack of quality boxers to topple Tyson from his in-game mantle, you'll just not want to put in the hours at the gym. [PSM2]
  3. It's not all bad, just needlessly frustrating. Once you get your head around the controls and deal with some of the flawed game mechanics, Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing becomes mildly enjoyable.
  4. A collection of terribly constructed animations, horribly limited replay, and a create-a-boxer mode that's shallower than it first seems. [Sept 2002, p.31]

    The "big" draw, aside from the fun cheating Mike Tyson parts, is the damage textures applied to the face and the little blood spurts, and sweat coming off your boxers face after he takes a punch...Once you take so many hits your boxer will go from bruised, to cut, to Face Critical! Whoopty-doo. One feature doesn't make your entire game, Codemasters.

    An all around mess of a game, Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing is officially one of (if not THE) worst examples of digital boxing we've ever seen.

    This game is a load of rubbish - if you want a boxing game buy fight night.
