Excerpt: Knockout Kings 2000 takes you from your couch, away from your TV, and right smack dab in the middle of the squared circle. The only thing closer to true boxing is strapping on the gloves. I must admit, I was really impressed with the graphics. The sound track, I could have done without (I'm not a big fan of Rap), but the sound effects and ring announcers were great. I was really impressed with the smooth animation and good rendering.
Excerpt: When the first Knockout Kings title was released, it received a mixed bag of ratings. Some say it was an all around a good boxing game, others will say that they expected more. The game had poor control, kind of slow gameplay, and it featured average graphics. EA knew that they had to improve the title, and that's when they announced Knockout Kings 2000. Knockout Kings 2000 is another stellar addition to EA's cyber athletes list.
