Category: Sports, Boxing
Platform: PS1
ESRB Rating: Everyone    Release Date: November 2000

Overall Rating: 0.5 Stars out of 4

Review by Tom Allen
½ Star out of 4

Not many boxing games are available these days. You've got Knockout Kings, Ready to Rumble, and now, Acclaim releases HBO Boxing, the first game with George Foreman.

A good deal of game play centers around combo punches. For a two-punch combo, press and hold a button. For a three-punch combo, press and hold two buttons. Obviously, for one punch, just tap the button. You are supposed to be able to throw combos while moving, but the slow controls don't allow for a lot of fancy footwork.

Boxing is a visually limiting sport, so it's hard to get excited about a game that relies on PlayStation graphics. The blocky textures and figures are not nearly as well animated as Ready to Rumble 2.
