Summary: I really see no reason to buy this game, you can beat it within 45 minutes if you can even stand playing it that long. Its only remotely fun when you play in 2 player mode. The characters add some spark but not enough to save this horrrible game. If you lik boxing, you might like it, but thats abouy it. Youll get bored with this game very fast so i highly reccomend knockout kings instead of this.

However, the game really falls apart with its inconsistencies of play, and one-player gaming is an exercise in futility that no gamer should have to endure. At critical moments in the game, your controls can simply become unresponsive. Unfortunately, you never know when this bad programming symptom will strike.
