Grew up playing this game around 12-15 years ago. I loved it. Big gamer now and I see it's not amazing, but still.

Yeah the GFX and sounds aren't brilliant by any stretch, but it was PS2. I grew in the 90's playing this game every night with my uncle and we loved it! I think we went through around 4-5 controllers trying beat one boss but all happy memories. Haven't played it since but I'd love to. Decent story mode, very good controls and easy to manage, and felt really good when you connected square on a guys jaw.

I wasn't a big fan of the camera angles, but that's just swings and roundabouts.

Overall, for a less known/knockout kings competitor, i think this holds it own, very fun, very frustrating but aren't all good games?

I highly doubt there's gonna be many copies of this game around today, for me it was a console gem, like Golden axe and Sonic so if you see one, please don't hesitate to pick it up and have a bash, you'll probably have to pay no more than £5 for it.
