Victorious Boxers Revolution
Family Friendly Gaming

Excerpt: When I first played the boxing in Wii Sports I knew how realistic a boxing game could be on this system. Wii Sports fell short in the boxing by not keeping up with my bullet punches. Victorious Boxers Revolution keeps up.
Summary: Victorious Boxers: Revolution offers the best boxing simulation outside of stepping into a real ring. Not only will players get a chance to swing and knockout their opponents, but they will also get a great workout, as the game takes full advantage of the unique capabilities of the Wii Remote and...
Excerpt: Back when the Xbox 360 was released, one of the first games that truly looked “next-gen” was Electronic Arts’ Fight Night: Round 3. Since then there hasn’t really been a whole lot of games based on the sweet science. That’s kind of understandable, considering how high Fight Night set the bar.
Excerpt: Ippo Makunouchi is the son most expectant mothers dream of raising. He works hard, he's dedicated to what he does, and most of all he has the fighting spirit. As awesome as he is, though, he only weighs around 130 pounds. He's a lightweight, for sure.
Excerpt: As much as I like rooting for the little guy, real underdog stories rarely have happy endings. Victorious Boxers landed on the PS2 in 2001 and, by all rights, should have been a hit. It had an immersive control system that incorporated full-body movement, momentum, and strategic fighting.
Conclusion: The sound runs the gamut from just fine to excruciating. The character voices are generally good, and Ippo’s suits his character especially well. Some of the other voices are simply passable and admittedly, there are some just poor lines in there. During the heat of battle though, it matters little.
Summary: Boxing fan or not, this is a fun game to play bottom line. The anime inspired look may turn off some, but if you’re a fight fan, you should give this game a shot. Casual players however will probably give it a whirl and move onto something less complex.
Conclusion: In Siren you are looking at a game that really had the potential with the new features, but really didn’t take advantage of any of them. If you are looking for a survival/horror title for your PS2 there are better options out there.
