Ydibb  "The First Thing That Caught My Eye About This Game When I Took It Off The Rack Was The Feature To To Fight As A Female Boxer. That Alone Had Me Sold On The Game But What Blew Me Away Was The Way They Slugged It Out As Hard As The Male Boxers. I Also Liked The Fact That You Could Create Your Own Fighter (a Quality Similar Games Lack) The Hip-hop Music Used In The Game Is Also A Plus. The Only Thing I Miss In This Game That Was Included In Last Years Version Was The Video To The Opening Theme Song Of The Game. Other That That This Game Is A Keeper And One Of The One's I Won't Find Myself Trading In."

Craig Mcclinchey  "My First Thought Of A Boxing Game Wasnt Very Nice But Wen I Played This Game I Was Enlightend. This Is A Must Have Game For All You Boxing Fans And Not Just Because of The Smooth Graphics. Its Because Of The Simulation And The Ring Walks. The Only Down Side Is That If Your On Easy The Career Mode Is So Easy I Have Beaten It Three Times In Three Days. Well Anyway If Your Looking For A Lifelike Simulation Of Boxings Greatest Get This Game."

Very Poor - an embarrassment to the console
Nothing spectacular, but still functional
Quality visuals that clearly show the power of this machine
Graphical masterpiece that is amongst the best currently available
Pushing the visual capability to it's absolute limit
This game has graphics that were never thought possible on this console

Makes little use of the CD capacity and audio hardware
Functional sounds that compliment the on-screen action
Quality atmospheric sounds that are highly effective
Music and effects that greatly enhance the overall enjoyment
Sounds like this were never thought possible on this console

PLAY-ABILITY (The way the game actually plays)
No fun to play, control is bad, gameplay lacks ideas
Offers moderate enjoyment but lacks a reason to play regularly
Quality title that has all the features you would expect
Top-notch title with nearly flawless gameplay
Little room for improvement and the best game of its type
Introduces new gameplay aspects not thought possible for this console

Wouldn't even buy for your worst enemy

Recommended purchase which should offer a weeks enjoyment
Has the potential to still be played regularly weeks from now
This will remain a popular game in your collection for months
You will enjoy playing this game occasionally even years from now
