Multiplayer Review

c2morg, Ciao
7 September 2005
  • Excerpt: "...from the 5 films, including rocky from each of them, 2 versions of Apollo, Ivan Drago and the misfit fighters who fall to Rocky along the way. This game doesn't play like most boxers, and especially like the recent fight night games. Its filled with combo's and special punches and it makes for an excellent multiplayer. The controls are easy to pick up, left and right straight punch, left and right jab, and modifiers for hooks and uppercuts. ...
  • Pros: Quality Multiplayer
  • Cons: Drago has a huge advantage !

A Sly knock-out

  • Excerpt: "...the ear biting mode though). Rocky takes these two different styles and mixes them together in a big boxing glove to produce one of the most entertaining and playable boxing games ever. Choices, Choices --------------- From the outset, a movie which doubles as an advert for the DVD (cheeky!), this game oozes class production values. The options give you the chance to play in many different styles, from the usual Exhibition and tournament modes ...
  • Pros: Great fun, feels like the film
  • Cons: hard on fingers !

Da da daa da da

  • Excerpt: "...remarkable flair. Movie mode sees Rocky starting life in dismal arenas fighting other no-hopers such as Spider Rico and Dipper Brown, until Apollo Creed makes an entrance. His momentous decision to give a plucky unknown the chance of taking his crown sets the player on a journey that vividly mirrors the films' magic. Movie clips, samples from all five films and tongue-in-cheek cut-scenes combine to add atmosphere and impetus to the boxing action. ...
  • Pros: Its Rocky !  Da da daaa da da, try and stop yourself singing along !
  • Cons: Strugles to find happy medium between being too easy and too hard

Fantastic use of a film license (for once)

Anthony Lynas, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Boxing games have a more than checkered past on games machines. Even the ones reviewers have tried to convince you are brilliant in the past have generally, at best, been poor relations of flashier pyrotechnic beat-em-ups like Soul Calibur. Rocky finally exposes why - other boxing games have attempted to mimic the beat-em-up genre when what they should have been doing is trying to mimic the sport.

The best Xbox boxing game...so what?

amazon.co.uk
30 October 2002
  • Summary: I was not at all impressed with this game, I bought it after having read a very positive review in a magazine which failed to point out any of the large list of annoyances and bad points... First off the graphics are pretty good, the characters are caricatures of their real-life counterparts, and look just like they're supposed to, the animation is fairly smooth and the framerate is solid, as you would expect as there's never much going on on the screen at any one time.

What a Knock-out!

  • Summary: I was the first to be sceptical when I heard that a Rocky game was coming out on the X-Box. However, the game is great to play comprising of great graphics and fluid game play. The moves you make with your boxer are excellent and look just like the real thing plus it takes time to get your combos working. The graphics are better than any other boxing game - blood splatters the floor, opponents faces swell up and sweat is thrown from their faces as you land a punch!

Outlandish Smackfest!

Kelly Marie Scott, amazon.co.uk
20 October 2002
  • Summary: I wasn't sure about Rocky when I saw the screenshots a few months back, espeically as it was being developed by Rage, but a lot of reviews praised it highly and Ive always loved the cheesy movies so I went ahead and bought it on its release day. I have to say that Im pleased I did as this is a thoroughly entertaining game. Im not hugely into boxing but this is the first time ive really enjoyed and gotten into a computer simulation of the sport.

Rocky: Simply the Best !

Kelly Marie Scott, amazon.co.uk
13 October 2002
  • Summary: Having played the Xbox and Playstation 2 versions of the game at ECTS 2002 trade show I can tell you that Rocky is quite simply the best movie licences ever produced and one of the best games you will have played for many a long year. Fans of the movie are going to love it because the game has a visual flair and an immense depth that recreates the sweet science of boxing perfectly and even if you have no knowledge of the Rocky films you will not believe the enjoyment...

Nettes Game!!!

Yopi
24 July 2004
  • Summary: Rocky besitzt zwar leichte Mängel bei Optik und Sound, kann ansonsten aber durchaus begeistern - die einfach zugängliche, aber dennoch komplexe Steuerung verhindert, dass Kämpfe nicht einfach durch unkontrolliertes Tastendrücken gewonnen werden können, außerdem bietet die an die Film-Reihe angelehnte Präsentation eine Reihe von interessanten Charakteren und Schauplätzen. Vor allem auch gegen menschliche Mitspieler bietet Rocky daher immens viel Spielspaß.
