Victorious Boxers: Ippo's Road To Glory – Review

However, if any boxing aficionado passes up this title just because Lennox Lewis doesn't adorn it's packaging or Mike Tyson's name isn't in the title, that would be an injustice greater than Roy Jones Jr. being robbed of a gold medal in the 1998 Olympics. For Victorious Boxers is the best boxing game to come along since 4D-Boxing in all its flat-shaded polygonal stick figured glory graced the PC many eons ago.

Victorious Boxers: Ippo's Road To Glory

Game Description: Victorious Boxers boasts a knockout combination of incredible 3D motion-captured graphics and addictive gameplay. The title introduces gamers to Ippo, who, fresh off of the mean streets, meets an old trainer who puts him in the ring. Gamers must start at the bottom, then earn the right to a pro placement. Eventually, by working up the professional rankings, they may earn a crack at the world champion. The game differs from other boxing titles in that it offers career progression through constant improvement, and gamers must learn new moves to progress. Listen to your trainer, and he will advise you as each fight progresses. You can take on more than 40 boxers in a huge variety of boxing arenas. See the crowds grow as each fight attracts a larger and larger purse!

Victorious Boxers: Ippo's Road To Glory – Second Opinion

Looking at Victorious Boxers, I definitely agree with Chi in that most people will be far from impressed by what they see. I certainly was.

NBA Street – Second Opinion

After playing for an hour or so I began to wonder if this was just another caricature video game along the lines of Midway's Ready 2 Rumble.

NBA Street – Review

Toss out any preconceptions you might have of league organized 5-on-5 simulation basketball. The setup for NBA Street is simple. It's 3-on-3 fullcourt basketball. Shots made inside the arch are worth one point. Shots made beyond the arch count for two.

NBA Street – Consumer Guide

NBA Street

Game Description: Taking the ball out of the hands of shoe salesman and giving it to characters based on schoolyard greats, NBA Street also plays by street rules. Off-the-backboard passes, nasty dunks, and a special momentum meter—which boosts your abilities as you humiliate the competition—let you know you're not playing arena ball. In fact, some of the courts are modeled after real-life basketball training grounds, such as New York's Rucker Park and the Cage. You'll see them all when you hit the road and take on the local crew. Perform well against them and you'll be able to recruit some special talent (did we say Mike?) to your team. Hold the Court mode will reward you with cool accessories, such as shoes and tattoos, by successfully defending the home court against challenging teams.

ESPN MLS GameNight

Game Description: Real players and teams in a network-style presentation. Create your own characters or build teams of real players., With ESPN MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER you can flop on the couch for a quick and friendly Exhibition game or set up camp and draw the battle lines for an entire 32-game Season, complete with an All-Star game and Playoffs. And if you’re good enough you’ll be taking home a shiny Major League Soccer Championship Cup. ESPN Major League Soccer provides all the thrilling gameplay you’ve come to expect from ESPN, along with current team rosters and more than 300 players ready for action.

ESPN MLS GameNight – Review

Then comes ESPN MLS GameNight—which is basically ISS Pro Evolution with ESPN and MLS (Major League Soccer) licenses slapped onto it. So now not only do you get every MLS team and player represented, but you also get commentary courtesy of ESPN commentators Bob Ley (English) and Luis Tapia (Spanish). Its been a long time coming for the ISS series, but finally there's an official soccer license attached that does justice to its fantastic gameplay.
