    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 I picked this game up 5 years after it came out and was still impressed.

    This game is pure banana. 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.

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

    This is not only the best boxing game ever made, but the best fighting game ever made.

    This game sucks! It's not even worth renting, it is truly horrible.

  1. The lackluster gameplay combined with mediocre graphics and poor sound make it a title worth staying far away from.

    A surprisingly deep and compelling boxing game, despite its overall minimalist approach to design, sound, and presentation.

    A refreshing break from the norm. [Feb 2002, p.85]
