Summary: I received my reserved copy yesterday and I have only now put the pad down. The custom boxer facility in particular, is great fun. In two player mode you can pit Tyson against all manner of your monstrous creations. Hairstyles, beards, bodyhair, skin colour can all be adjusted. Height, scale of torso, arms, legs, gloves are also infinitely adjustable. I'm not a big fan of Mike Tyson but the quality of graphics, game play and shear depth of features sold this one to me.
Summary: I bought this game on Friday, the day it came out, and I've hardly been off it since. (Except to watch the fight, of course!!! ;)) The graphics are wonderful, the gameplay is fun, and a unique look at fighting games/sports games. It has the best elements from KK2002 and Ready to Rumble, where it is a realistic and atmospheric game, yet it is more focused at the fun than the realism. This makes it into an incredibly addictive party game.
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: Be very careful when reading the glowing reviews posted on this game that are posted here. I have heard that the actual people behind lame games go on and post great reviews to fool people into thinking the game is a winner and spike sales. My suggestion is to check out the online unbiased sites such as IGN.Com and Gamespot.Com where reviews can be trusted.
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!!
Summary: This game rocks, i dont know what game evilredcrow is playing but it couldnt be this , the graphics are gorgeous as are the ring girls ;) phwooaaahhh. The game play for me is perfectly balanced (once you get to grips), this is no button basher its far more technical and requires a bit of thought, not much good if your a bit dim !!.
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".
