The graphics are very impressive, espically for a the aging PS2 hardware. The character models and skin textures are equally impressive even by today's high standards. While the audience backgrounds can be a little dull, the ring and the surronding areas are very good looking. Little effects like rag doll physics, and squirts of blood, and the way your fighters face will look after 10 rounds of hardcore boxing action is to say simply .. cool.
The sound is the game's weakest spot, with only a few tracks on the game, you will get sick of the music in the game's menus. But as you enter the arena the sounds of the crowd and the punches you will land sound great.
Overall this is a great game and a successful entry into the boxing genre, and while this may sound a bit pre-mature, there is no way a current gen fighting game will be better. The only thing we can do is wait for the inevitable Round 3, which I anxiously await, which is scheduled to appear of the X-Box 360 and the Playstation 3 some time next year.
