Summary: This game is the best hajime no ippo/fighting spirit game you will find in the u.s. The game has over 80 boxers from the anime/manga, and its a very challenging game on the harder difficulties. The only true problem I have with this game is the sound or lack there of, theres funky electro-esque music playing in the backgrounds but there's no voice acting like the game on the wii aside from the announcer.
Summary: i ve had this game for quite a while and itz fun with alot of hidden techniques such as the devastating uppercut and the heartbreak punch which im currently trying to master. overall could use voice acting but this style grew on me boxer s move slick and smooth like real life and with 70 plus characters how can u go wrong get the game. dont debate or tt may be too late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A challenging...scratch that "fricken HARD title".

Summary: Well I have to say after playing Fight Night Round 4 for a bit this game is a refreshing take on the boxing genre. You might breeze though the first couple fights but believe you me when you get to Jason Ozuma you may cry. For fans of the series this game is a must. While its close cousin Hajime no Ippo 2: Victorious Road (?) has more options, sans character selection *70 fighters!*, this is the game you want if you dont import.
Summary: A lot more movement options which make the game feel very real especially when you're stuck on the ropes or in the corner. I also like the fact if your boxer is fast enough you can circle the opponent. Oh yeah the parry/counters were done very well too.
Summary: Pretty fun boxing game to play. Except graphics everything is perfect. Story mode is also fun... Even though you are not a fan of the original manga, you will enjoy it as long as you like boxing game... it has much faster action than FNC.
Summary: The first Victorious Boxers game was fantastic... one of the best boxing games by far. The sequel however is a sorry attempt to cash in on the fame of the first (and the comic series upon which the games are based). As far as gameplay goes, the sequel uses basically the same controls as the first. The action is faster, but the controls are much more sloppy and it is much more difficult to tell where your punches are landing.
