It's a real disappointment, it's not fun, and it looks bad. It's not even a potential contender, and if Apollo Creed or Mr. T. ever got ahold of this they'd eat it for breakfast, and they aren't even real boxers.
The game has the worst combination of problems a boxing game could possibly have: sloppy controls, horrid animation, and poor collision detection. These detrimental factors ultimately make HBO boxing a bigger waste of money than the Tyson vs. Golata fight.
Horrible...Not even a big-name license such as HBO or a high-profile cover boy such as George Foreman could save this boxing debacle, thanks to its awful graphics, horrible control, and crappy gameplay.
