Lacking

Amazon
5 February 2004
  • Summary: I was happy to see some new faces in the game (Klitschko Bros) but like others have stated, it is not strategic and lacks the "boxing" of Knockout Kings 2001. It is true to say that every fight is like a slugfest and the one that can hit the buttons the fastest wins.

EA needs to stick to Football

  • 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.

nice graphic but not much else

Amazon
26 May 2002
  • Summary: I was a big fan of this series but EA made a wrong turn with this version. Graphics are excellent but after that everything is very poor. My main gripe is with the controls, you cannot control body shots and nowhere in the manual does it show you how.

Not good at all

James Marsh, Amazon

  • Summary: This game does have nice graphics and sound. The punch selection is pathetic. There is no way to choose body blow v. head blow. You can get your boxer to move around the ring, but you cannot truly make him duck and bob. Basically all you do is try to press your buttons faster than the computer can.

NOT GOOD!

Amazon
2 April 2002
  • Summary: Like the other reviews I have to say I'm very disappointed in EA Sports for releasing this title. The only good thing I can say about the game is the graphics are better than 2001, other than that Knockout Kings 2001 is a much much better game. Save your money.

Dull & Boring

  • Summary: I had last year's knock out kings, and loved the aspect of the training mode. However, this game doesn't have that. Sure graphics are good, but the control was better on the last game...Anyhow, I'd advise to avoid this game. Let's see how outrageous the advertising will be. Don't be fooled!!!!

This game is a JOKE!

Amazon
10 March 2002
  • Summary: This game has NO realism in the world of boxing whatso ever. Last years knockout kings at least had a strategic gaming method and a training mode. This year, no training, and requires no strategy at all. Ive mastered Knockout Kings 2001, all my friends would come over and get killed.

KnockOut KIngs 2002!

"floydpatterson", Amazon

  • Summary: I loved KO Kings 2001, and the N64 versions before that. I was anticipating this new version.... ...Highly disappointed. Dont waste your money! Half the good boxers in the 2001 version are absent, the gameplay is jerky and too fast. Controls are far from smooth. Can only pick 7 character looks....

  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Cons: "worst ever CAF"
