Fun for the boxing fan!

This game is a fun game for those who are fans of old-school boxing as well as for those interested in up-and-coming boxers of today. In my opinion this game is more suitable for kids 13 and up. I play along side my son to make sure lyrics from songs or other visuals that may be inappropriate are skipped. Overall a good game.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Best gamer ever

Love it best game on the market!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (7 ):

But great graphics doesn't necessarily mean a good video game. Oh sure, matching up the nearly 50 boxing greats -- such as Muhammad Ali versus Iron Mike Tyson in a fantasy bout -- is a blast to watch, but the game feels great, too. The controls are intuitive and responsive, so it's easy to pick up and perform jabs, uppercuts, hooks as well as a host of defensive maneuvers. Stockier brawlers, like Tyson, will attempt weave inside and deliver punishing hooks to an opponent's head and torso, while taller fighters, like Ali, will use their massive reach to jab while staying out of range of an opponent’s swings. The only thing more fun than sharpening your skills in the various single-player games, including a beefy career mode, is the multiplayer options pitting two boxers on the same TV or over the Internet.

Online interaction: You can chat over a headset microphone while playing online. As with other games, this means inappropriate language might be heard from another player.
