Contender

Playstation Illustrated
7 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Bright, colorful, and cartoony. Contender is in the arcade corner, a decidedly different approach from Electronic Arts’ boxing simulation, Knockout Kings . The boxers are represented fairly well (they are all fictional boxers in Contender ), and even women can fight the men. The backgrounds are pretty plain and lame. But if you’re looking at them, you’re probably going to get your ass beat by the other boxer.

  • Summary: In the end, however, Contender offers little to the gaming world. It is a bland and contrived title, and certainly a far cry from what we really need. "What do we really need?" you ask? Simple, we need a game that does for boxing what the FIFA, NBA Live, or MLB games do for their respective sports: recreate a sports experience as thoroughly as possible.
