  1. The sounds of gloves hitting faces gives off a satisfying smack, and body blows have a painful thudding sound to them.
  2. It’s a great game with visual flair and an immense depth of gameplay that recreates the “Sweet Science” perfectly.
  3. A winner with at least majority decision, if not a knockout.
  4. The game is a fairly realistic boxing sim. It pretty much it boils down to this: if you liked the acclaimed Rocky series, you’re sure to like this title, but if you never cared for it, you’ll probably hate it.
  5. 74
    Unfortunately, for PS2 owners, a vicious beat-down is delivered by the GameCube's less blurry, less angular crowds, and it wins by a split decision.
  6. The control and gameplay aren't great, but they're good enough for fans of the license. [Holiday 2002, p.54]
  7. Completely spoiled by a few major problems, the worst of which makes it possible to get by opponents using only one button.
