  1. A solid arcade-style boxing game, and like most arcade games, it wears thin fairly quickly.
  2. 100
    This game is one of those rare cases where it crosses so many lines of game genres. Whether you are a sports fan or challenge and skill, this is one game that will deliver on all fronts.
  3. 100
    The wild characters are hilarious, the gameplay is incredibly fun, and the graphics are excellent.
  4. Fans of "Ready 2 Rumble" will find a great deal to enjoy here - even if it doesn''t quite reach the classic heights of the first game there is still plenty of variety here to keep you coming back for more.

    The gameplay could be a bit better in places, yet it's still a fun title that doesn't get old very quickly and has a lot of replay value because of the secret characters.

    There's just not that much to it. Even the career mode suffers from a distinct lack of depth.
  7. Overall, this game is just not much different than the original Ready 2 Rumble. It's definitely a fun game, and if you don't own the original, go ahead and put this one on your short list.
  8. This one takes full advantage of the PS2's graphic capabilities, giving a digital beatdown to all comers in the genre.
  9. You need to have a sense of humor if you want to box, at least if you want to box in R2R2: R2.
  10. If you have a sibling or friend nearby with whom you can play, this game will keep you occupied for months.
  11. Fans of arcade style games, such as myself, will appreciate the game. Its gameplay is fun, and the graphics are wonderful.
  12. If you like games that involve you beating the crap out of somebody, you will like this.
