  1. The game is as good a boxing game as you are going to find, but it’s not great.
  2. Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing has a slew of faults that inevitably bring the title down but that’s not to say that you won’t have a good time in the ring.
  3. The game is a mess from the opening bell to the K.O. punch. As for differences between the two versions, nothing was touched up for the Xbox version, and both games are virtually identical.

    An all around mess of a game, Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing is officially one of (if not THE) worst examples of digital boxing we've ever seen.
  5. It doesn’t seem to know whether it wants to be a realistic simulation of the sport or a straight-out arcade game, as it stands it manages to succeed as neither.
  6. Although I have no gripe with the stable of boxers included here, I think the game would have been a lot more enjoyable if other equally despised personalities were licensed for the game. Just imagine the possible matches, Tyson versus O.J. Simpson, Hussein versus John Rocker, Bin Laden versus Enron board members. That would be fun no matter how bad the game sucked.

    Character creation was abysmal, also it is horribly confusing and anti-player friendly, like super-star like game.
