    This game has a lot more sim qualities than credited for... boxing fans will be surprised at the depth involved in the actual fighting, if you're playing against a human opponent... unlike the fight night series, you can effectively sidestep your opponent's don't have the same fluid control over bobbing and weaving and leaning, but the blocking makes a lot more sense as the block button blocks both head and body blows, without having to ridiculously switch from a high and low guard, which resulted in a three-stooges-like sequences in fight night round 2, where you would fake a blow to the body, and once your opponent drops his guard to protect his body, you go for a head shot.. does that ever happen in real boxing?

    The graphics, sound, atmosphere, and game concept are all pretty good. The problem here, is with the gameplay. It's way too simple and button mashy. It all but makes the great presentation pointless. Full Review »

    What a disappointment. Any boxing game with the rocky name to it you would expect to be half decent. Wrong. Maybe my opinion on this is a little harsh, after playing fight night 2004 you can hardly blame me. This game falls short on every aspect, and was it just me, did rocky seem to be graphically the worse looking character in the game ? Put it back on the shelf you can pick up fightnight 2004 for less which is the best boxing game available. Full Review »
