Summary: I like many who bought this game am a boxing fan. With EA Sports pulling it's sucessfull simulation "Knockout Kings" off the ps2 platform, I was left to look elsewhere for "sweet science"(boxing) action. After months of looking and finding just old boxing games or cartoonish boxing games I thought I was out of luck. Then came "Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing".
Summary: Okay this is an emergency message.... dont listen to anyone who thinks this game [is bad] this game [Rocks} sure its not like knockout kings 2002 wich [was bad] anyway, but Iron Mike Tyson Heavyweight boxing is sooo awesome and is totally worth buying heres the FACTS people problably dont like parts of this game because its like nfl blits but trust me this game rocks its really hard but when you unlock iron mike tyson its a whole different story tyson makes the game soo...
Summary: ...You may not have to guess how I feel about "Mike Tyson's Heavyweight Boxing". It is a horrible game and was no fun at all. The graphics are pretty good and the control method is quite a good idea but the game itself is very frustrating and ridiculously hard. Even after I used a cheat to unlock Tyson, I still got pounded and KO'd by Audley Harrison within 30 seconds.
Summary: ... I have the game and think its a great game after a few days of battling my way through to the harder players with my custom boxer. If you enjoy to have a game which will last you a lot longer than KK2 then why waste your money on anything else except a good game "Mike Tysons Heavyweight Boxing".
Summary: this game [is] bad. i bought this game with some doubt in my mind. i should have listened to all of the bad reviews it recieved. i read maybe 3 review that gave the game less than a 3 outta 10... the gameplay: i thought that the game didn't use the power that the PS2 could put out. the fighters looked as if they were just punching accross the other fighter.
Summary: The first time i played Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing i was like wow. the graphics are great,there are a variety of modes and they are all pretty fun, and the features are nice too. the controls are weird at first, but i got used to it in about half an hour. the actual fighting is realistic, but it has an arcade feel, which is a good thing. when i play as Iron Mike, i feel like pounding my opponent and i usually do so the fun factor is there.
Summary: Easily the best boxing game out there! The controls take a while to get used to and right at the start you're only provided with a few fighters. To play as the other big name fighters, you have to really work for it! At first, even the fighters that the game already gives you are hard to beat. As for customizing boxers, it's superior and unprecedented to all the other games...you'll see!!! Cons, just like KK2002, there's no clinching!!
