According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence, Mild Language
Parents, this is a respectful and serious recreation of the sport of boxing. If youre child loves boxing, this title may have gameplay problems, but its still probably your best bet if you want a realistic simulation of the sport (complete with bloody cuts and illegal low blows). Otherwise, if you prefer the sport with more cartoonish violence and antics, go to the Ready 2 Rumble series.
Serious boxing (simulation) fans as usual dont have much choice. Lucky for them Knockout Kings 2001 isnt that bad in terms of gameplay, and the roster of boxers is simply to die for. Theres still plenty of room for improvement in the series and many will probably wish EA Sports took the game much further than a few scant modes and options.
Fans of Street Fighter 2-style competitive fighters will probably want to stay away from this one. The action is rather slow paced and requires a great deal of patience.
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
