    Doesn't quite do enough to steal "Round 3's" crown, but takes it right down to the wire. [Aug 2008, p.78]
  2. I've enjoyed Prize Fighter, because for the most part I found the story mode presentation to be a welcome addition to the game.
  3. Don King Presents Prizefighter is a competent boxing game that is fun to play and which offers an entertaining career mode. That's all it is, however, and isn't really going to blow anyone away.
  4. Prizefighter definitely has its frustrating moments, but there was enough fight in it – in and out of the ring – to keep me from needing the smelling salts.

    Eschews the pugilism of "Fight Night" for top arcadey street fighting. [Sept 2008, p.84]

    Other game of the big mouth of Don King. We meet much fighting games: Dead or Alive, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter; And all are betterOther game of the big mouth of Don King. We meet much fighting games: Dead or Alive, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter; And all are better than this game. And we meet the principal box saga, Fight Night Round, a better box game. The principal problem in this game is that the story is really stupid, the graphics are awful, when you play with other people the game have some funy moments, but the rest is terrible. Full Review »

    Not a lot of movement, can easily stay in one place and move, not amazing graphics but an overall good game for its time. I loved this gameNot a lot of movement, can easily stay in one place and move, not amazing graphics but an overall good game for its time. I loved this game and thought that the story line was easy to follow and interesting. YES isn't as good as fight night. However it is still a very good game and is worth your money. Full Review »

    Prizefighter is a game that never stood a chance, you can't go against a juggernaut like Fight Night and then put little effort into yourPrizefighter is a game that never stood a chance, you can't go against a juggernaut like Fight Night and then put little effort into your fighter.

    The boxing this time takes it back to the old school, where face buttons control your uppercuts, jabs and hay-makers, which I have always prefer-ed. But there is nothing behind those punches. Mash the buttons and your boxer will stick out his arms and it's touch and go whether or not the game recognizes them as a landed punch. They all look unconvincing due to poor animation but it's up to the A.I whether they make it to not.

    Presentation has some potential, licensed music and fan fare makes you almost want to get pumped up for the fight if you didn't already know how things are going to turn out when the game-play kicks in.

    The game's main focus seemed to be a well fleshed out fictional documentary piece about your created fighter, but when it gets down to it, it doesn't matter how man C-list celebrities they got to record footage, if there is no solid game-play there is no point.
