I was not expecting this game to be as good as it was and being one the first games out on the PS3 thought that it was a great game.
The graphics in this game were amazing, you can see all the likeness of the boxers and you will instantly recognise the most famous of the lot. The game has some nice slow motion moments before knock outs etc where you see a spay of spit everywhere which graphically looks good, and changes as well depending on how and where you hit them.
The game itself plays really well the fighting system at first seems really complicated with you have to hold down shoulder buttons while you use the control sticks to throw punches but this turns out to tbe the best part of the game once you master it. You feel much more in the game with you have to move the stick in different directions and stuff to pull off different punches. The games difficulty can increase a lot if you play it enough and the game also has multiplayer which is awesome fun to play with your mates.
The career mose is better than expected with training mini games which are challenging and also build up your character's traits and attributes. Making you have to chose which aspects of your boxer you want to train up and the career mode has a nice long lasting playthrough. It's not something you will be able to finish in a day. Which a good.
Overall i liked the game and it is really fun to watch as you knock out some scummy boxer you never heard of and even better when you get around to being good enough to beat Ali.
