Excerpt: Mike Tyson’s Punch Out for the Nintendo Entertainment System is one of my all-time favourite boxing titles. The game was based entirely on pattern recognition but it was still loads of fun because the game was oozing with personality.
Excerpt: Okay, let's just get this out of the way - Boxing Fever looks impressive. Yeah, I know, you see that screenshot and say 'StarScream, what are you smoking?' Trust me, once you see the game in motion, your jaw will drop.
Summary: Nothin’ says lovin’ like my homemade biscuits! Err...rather, Boxing Fever is a really cool game.
Pros: Boxing gameplay combines reflexes and strategy to go way beyond the typical pattern-based formula of this genre., Eye-catching, unusual visuals that work with the gameplay, not against or in spite of it., Perfectly suited for two-player matches; buy two copies and start converting your friends.
Cons: Music plays sporadically, and some of it is a bit disturbing., There could have been more differentiation among the characters., There’s nothing to unlock, and the password system is more or less useless.
