Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 0 out of 7
  2. Negative: 5 out of 7
  1. 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.
  2. 30
    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.
  3. 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.
  4. The Hector "Macho" Camacho of boxing games: lots of style and flash, but no punching power.
  5. If "Knockout Kings 2001" weren't on the market, this game might earn a severe MISS rating. But compared to that excellent game, HBO Boxing isn't worth the disc it's encoded on.
