EA Sports has dressed up its bestselling boxing title for the new millennium and has kindly added enough new features to make this game a knockout on the PlayStation2... no pun intended.
The raft of changes that has been added to this version of Knockout Kings includes a new way to throw punches, aptly called Dynamic Punch Control. This feature allows you to control and put together punch combinations that will outwit the other fighters you face. The limitless combinations add a new level of replayability to the title that didn't exist in previous installments.
You can create dream bouts using some of the best boxers the world has ever seen. The lineup includes Smoking Joe Frazier, Muhammad Ali, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, and Julio Cesar Chavez. Better yet, put them up against some of boxing's current stars such as Oscar De La Hoya, Lennox Lewis, or Michael Grant.
EA Sports has left no stone unturned when it comes to the sweet science of boxing. New fighting styles now allow gamers to create boxers with attacks that mimic those of boxing's legends, such as Ken Norton's crab style or Rocky Marciano's slugger style. --Todd Mowatt
