Summary: I like this game because it's a nice game to play against a friend. I have this along with Knockout Kings 2001. I've played this game to see if I liked it, and I did. People complained that this doesn't have ring enterances, and prefight introductions. So what! you can't have them all the time. I know it's not fun facing that, but that's the way things are.
Summary: No one can call this a boxing sim with a a straight face. It's a arcade button mashers nightmare of the worst kind. How can EA, who is KNOW for making great sports title drop the ball (no pun) on KK2. First off, EA needs to put as much time & effort on it's boxing games like it does with it's other sports titles. For those who think this is a boxing sim, let me point some things out. Real boxers don't throw 160 punches a round.
Excerpt: "...year EA make a better knockout kings game. The controls haven’t changed so if you played the other games before you are able to catch on quickly. Unlike the other games, the boxers face actually bleed and swell up when they have been beaten up really badly. The graphics have improved a lot. The detail they have put into each boxer is excellent, so they really look like the real thing. It is very fast and there are a huge variety of ...

Summary: QUALITY, just snapped it up its sheer class! No really, if you love boxing then this is the game for you. There's all the greats: Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, Lewis.... Not only are the characters there but their so realistic, I actually thought I was flooring Lewis, but no...its only a game . Yes sigh it is just a game but what a good one. Its got stunning graphics with identical players, they perspire, bleed, bruise, yell, taunt, cry, celebrate and of course go DOWN!
Pros: Review Style
Cons: You may have to buy it even if you hate boxing!
Summary: Introduction Knockout kings is a long running series now and is obviously about the brutal world of boxing. This is by far the best boxing game on Ps2 according to most reviews so I thought with all the hype around Lewis's triumphant win I would give it a go. This game is trying to be somewhat of a simulation and I think this is the preferred type of game for any true sports fan.
Pros: good movement, nice graphics, decent sound
Cons: button basher, very limited modes, worst ever CAF

Summary: Adriaaaaaaaaaaan! Knockout Kings 2002 is a decent battler. A good looker but prone to hitting the canvas in the early rounds. It's the latest mash-em up from EA Sports in which you get to batter some of the best boxers in the world. It's the usual sort of thing. You get the option of exhibition, tournament or career modes. There's a range of famous boxers like Ali, De La Hoya, Lewis etc and there's also some made-up ones. No Tyson though.
Excerpt: "...you like it. I recently purchased Knockout kings 2002 from Dixon’s for £39.99. It is a very detailed game with bruising and swelling around the eye and you can fight in some of the top arenas around the world such as Caesers palace, Las Vegas and Wembley arena, London. You can also fight in a career mode with a created boxer some of your opponents in the heavyweight division are Muhammad Ali, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield or in middleweight ...
