Don King Boxing

The Gamers Temple
23 September 2009
  • Excerpt: By Brad Russell The Wii does only a few things better than the accuracy of a computer mouse and better than the smooth gameplay of the other consoles. Taking you off of your couch and putting you in gloves of a boxing myth is one such thing. Don King Boxing is the title to put on the Don-fro and get you into the ring, but just like a pay-per-view first round knockout, this title promises much and delivers only a little.

Don King Boxing

Game Over Online
29 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Don King has been in the limelight of boxing for years. Ali, Foreman, Frazier, Holyfield; these are just a few of the big-name boxers whose careers were aided by his crazy, off-the-wall, but unbeatable promoting. This guy is arguably the greatest and most impactful fight promoter of all time. Now he’s delving into the world of videogames. My honest hope going into playing this game was that the King would not let anything but a great product release to us hungry gamers.

Don King Boxing

Operation Sports
14 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Don King has promoted Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Bernard Hopkins, George Foreman, Roberto Duran and many more of boxing’s biggest names. But, can he promote video games? Let us find out whether Don King Boxing is kissing the canvas or knocking the competition out.
  • Pros: Story mode took a lot of effort., More calories burned than Fight Night., Best boxing game on the Wii.
  • Cons: Graphics are bland., Punches aren't always spot-on., No create-a-modes.

Don King Boxing Review

GameSpot
3 April 2009
  • Excerpt: With Don King's multisyllabic faux-cabulary and towering hairdo, it often seems like he's not a real person. The video game that his name adorns, though, tries very hard to offer a realistic depiction of the sport. There are licensed boxers from both this era and years long past, as well as famous arenas where classic fights were held. The slow-paced, defensive-oriented matches also mirror the real sport, rewarding well-timed blows rather than chaotic punches.
  • Pros: Solid presentation, Good motion controls
  • Cons: Fights lack impact, Judging distance is a pain, Training program is too separate from the career mode

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
21 April 2009
  • Excerpt: What is it with boxing games on the Wii all of a sudden? There hasn't really been any since Wii Sports and now, without warning, we've had a deluge of punchfests all turning up at around the same time. There was Facebreaker, which was pretty awful, and you've got Ready 2 Rumble Revolution on the way, as well as the much-anticipated Punch-Out!! from Nintendo. So why should you bother with the generic-looking Don King's Boxing?

Don King Boxing review

Gameplanet
9 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Some great concepts and plenty of potential, but ultimately the game lacks polish and pizazz. One thing’s for sure; this ain’t no Rumble in the Jungle.
  • Pros: Unique documentary-style story mode; the Wii balance board enhances the fight experience (unfortunately not everybody owns one).
  • Cons: Twitchy, sometimes temperamental controls; Fights lack the power and intensity of the real McCoy.
