  • Excerpt: There is nothing like pitting two intensely trained fighters in a 4-sided ring and watching them kick the crap out of each other. Knockout Kings 2002, developed by EA's sports simulation team, gives the boxing genre a much needed adrenaline boost. With all the crap-infested Mike Tyson Boxing titles out there, KOK2K2 is a breath of fresh air. EA has included a large assortment of well-known boxers for this title with Ali being the game's ambiguous mascot.

  • Excerpt: When Knockout Kings first came out for the PSX it was a unique title that prided itself on realism. EA was really the first developer to go out and license as many real life boxers as they did. The game itself was also strong on the simulation side with things like clinching, combinations, and facial damage. As with most simulation based games, it was embraced by hardcore boxing fans, but the for the average gamer it may have seemed a bit stale.

  • Excerpt: As fighting games go, most offer over-the-top, superhuman extravaganzas; lots' of improbably painful feats of athletic brutality, as if game-imitating-reality brawling was too tame, uninspired, lacking the cathartic effects of pummel-'til-you're-giddy gameplay. Offering a lesson in humility to all those top-heavy bashers is EA Sport s' Knockout Kings 2002 , simply the best boxing simulation yet made.

  • Conclusion: Auch die Tatsache, dass man dem Spiel ganze zwei Ringschiedsrichter gewidmet hat, ist in modernen Zeiten, die eher durch Vielfalt glänzen sollten, leider viel zu wenig. Nichtsdestotrotz: Für eine Partie zwischendurch ist das Spiel auf jeden Fall gut genug, vor allem die Replays bei Niederschlägen können überzeugend, dennoch wäre bei dem Spiel mehr drin gewesen.
