    It proves that you don’t need hyper detailed, synapse-sizzling graphics to deliver a great game when ingenuity and solid mechanics will do.
  2. It’s fair to say that Victorious Boxing will develop fine stick control more than simply being male ever could and, as in life, the rewards are vast, with expert wagglers able to move and fall into a lean-accentuated strike all in one, ahem, fluid motion.

    A surprisingly deep and compelling boxing game, despite its overall minimalist approach to design, sound, and presentation.
  4. A fairly entertaining game. If boxing games are your thing, then you should check it out.
  5. It’s the control that sets Victorious Boxers apart from "Knockout Kings" and "Ready to Rumble" – it’s nearly perfect.
  6. They score major points on style, definition, and realism in movement. But points get taken away for the sparse look and sound effects.
  7. The lackluster gameplay combined with mediocre graphics and poor sound make it a title worth staying far away from.

    Excellent boxing sim! Only a bit short and lack of career/training mode, the story mode could be finished in one day.

    I picked this game up 5 years after it came out and was still impressed. Great boxing game, and the mechanics are about as realistic as I I picked this game up 5 years after it came out and was still impressed. Great boxing game, and the mechanics are about as realistic as I think you can get on a controller. The graphics could of have been better and I would have liked it if there were voice overs. Despite all that, me and my friends played this a lot and one of my friends even went and found one of his own. Great game and lots of fun, highly recommended. Expand

After a few fights you have a boxing match with a bear in the woods. It's difficult to control and has poor graphics/sound. I'd much rather play Barry McGuigans boxing on the zx spectrum. It's s**t.
