Average User Score: 7.2Jul 24, 2014A disappointing game let down by bad AI and a lack of speed / fluidity.
As you progress in career mode it feels like the computer cheats rather than the difficulty increasing. You can work hard blocking and jabbing only to have your hard earned gain wiped out inexplicably by shots from your opponent that appeared to be blocked.

Average User Score: 8.3Jun 26, 2014In my opinion this is one of the two best platform games ever made; the other being Super Mario World. The controls are intuitive and responsive. You die a lot but it never feels unfair. It's a tough game but you always feel a few tweaks, a bit more practise and you'll beat the level. The level design is brilliant and the difficulty curve progressive. You'll look back at levels you thought challenging an hour ago and chuckle at how trivial they now seem. In summary a brilliant game that will give you sweaty hands! Oh .. don't play without a controller.… Expand
