  1. I remember a time when there were no boxing games whatsoever on PlayStation, and a game like this could have gotten away with its mediocrecy and sell well on Tyson's name alone.
  2. If you're a fan of the child-eating boxer, help yourself to a serving of Mike Tyson Boxing. Otherwise, spend your bet money on "Knockout Kings" or "Ready 2 Rumble 2."
  3. 43
    A comatose career mode, weak multiplayer, and lack of flair don't bespeak great longevity. But there are some boxers for masochists to unlock.
  4. A second rate boxing title that just can't cut it with "K.O. Kings."
  5. The biggest problem area in Mike Tyson Boxing is the controls. They're not completely unresponsive, but there is a definite delay that affects the overall gameplay and fluidity of the game.
  6. There’s no ear biting in Tyson’s animated repertoire (damn!), but there’re plenty of other ways to rearrange your opponent’s face—even though you won’t recognize any of them.
  7. The game's poor presentation gives you a hint of the game's nature right away, which is confirmed hours later once you've mastered the game's repetitive gameplay mechanics.
