  1. Although there’s no multiplayer, the replay value is durable, not to mention the nicely done graphics and the incredibly impressive sound.
  2. Hands down the most entertaining boxing title currently out for the GBA. Unfortunately there are a few too many minor issues that ultimately keep this title from being an instant classic along the same lines of it’s predecessors.
  3. Tries its best to be the next Punch-Out!!, but it falls well short of the mark.

    Acclaim has taken the once-spellbinding formula and given it the full GBA treatment, creating a game that plays, looks, and sounds better. [Aug 2002, p.76]

    The challenging setup, bold graphics, lively characters and fun settings should score a knockout with boxing buffs. [Aug 2002, p.147]
  6. The biggest problem in Punch King is how shallow it is.

    I have to go to the courthouse and file a restraining order so this crappy game cannot get within 1,000 fee of me ever again. [August 2002, p.91]
