A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Although the violence here is part of the sport, you definitely don't want your kids imitating it.
Violence & Scariness
The game is as violent as a live boxing match. There is no death, but each boxer endures quite a physical punishment.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this T-rated game is geared toward a mature teen audience. You will not find death and destruction, but you will find plenty of fists flying and bodies slamming on the floor of the boxing ring. The game is very realistic, and like in a live boxing match, sometimes fighters get up for more and sometimes they are down for the count.
Is It Any Good?
Fight fans finally have a game that offers the same realism that EA has mastered in its hot-selling football and basketball games. The game is lifelike, right down to the sweat flying off of your opponent's face as you connect a jaw-rattling upper cut. Players choose from thousands of different options and combinations to build the ideal boxer.
Overall, the game is a great way for boxing fans to experience the hard-hitting sport from the safe and comfortable setting of the living room sofa. However, the game's violent nature makes it best for mature teens.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
