Summary: This has pretty much all the champs, Ali, Frazier, Leonard, Lewis, and Holyfield, among others. The graphics, sound, play controls are all well put together. I especially like the blood and bruise feature you can give to a boxer after your player has given him a particularly brutal beating. I've sat down with friends a couple of hours at a time betting on matches we have with each other.
Summary: this game is tyte as ..., its ten times better than all the other knock out kings. Those peices of ... were [bad], but this one on the other hand is a masterpiece (although your hands do get rather tired from openin up a can of ...).
Summary: Though I do miss the old-time boxers like Joe Louis and Jake Lamotta, KK2002 is still a MUCH better game than 2001. Boxers now move freely about the ring. The game actually LOOKS like a real boxing match, as opposed to the 2001 which basically involved blocking, then punching, then blocking again. The game is surprisingly deep and complex, with your opponents changing styles over the course of fights, even reacting to your bread-and-butter combos.
Summary: Wow! What an experience. This game is great. The boxers in here give you a new fight experience everytime. I can't stop playing this game. My favorite boxer is Joe Frazier. He is a punishing hitter. I like to corner the other fighter and really let him have it. Ali is tough. I can't beat him and he has the most wicked finish of a fighter that I've seen of the game. Love the sound too! This is a great game.
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.
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!
