3.0 out of 5 stars A good start for a Boxing Manager Game 24 Jan. 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Most of us boxing fans have ben crying out for a boxing equivalent of Football Manager, with the miniscule (ie 3) releases often being little more than a means to set up tournamntes or bouts with little structure and certainly nothing like the Management depth that we would like. Infact up until recently the only decent Manager Game has actually been World Championship Boxing Manager (a former Commodore 64 title from the mid eighties) on emulation. This is a good start though and gives you the ability to create, train, promote and manage your fighter from pretty much every aspect. You can even witness the fight itself and give between rounds instructions etc. Of all the management games this is truly the most comprehensive. That said there are a few problems, the options when creating a fighter are limited (which results in very odd looking fighters), the 'viewable' boxing matches are terrible with your bizaare creations herky jerkying all over the place (which ruins any sense of realism) and the media/fighter interaction is no way near the scope of the football manager games.

All in all this is the best boxing management game currently and a great start off point for other game deisgners to work from (we must remember that football manager started off as champ manager back in 1992 and its taken 15 years to reach the levels it has). Yes it has its floors however these can be overlooked as this is a good first attempt.

Graphics: 2/5 - terrible character models
Sound: 2/5 - Game tune grates after a while
Options: 3/5 - comprehensive
Playability 4/5 - Lots to do
Re-Play value 4/5 - Creating and managing a stable of fighters others an infinte number of possibilities.
Rating against Competition (ie other boxing manager titles) - Leader

If your a Boxing fan, buy this now!

1.0 out of 5 stars biggest mistake ever 20 Mar. 2009
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
this game is the worst i've ever played!
there is no skill, no logic and absolutly no point in buying this waste of time. starting on easy level gives you $200k and no matter what you try this soon evaporates and everybody leaves the gym leaving you very frustrated after 8-10 years of gameplay.if you buy a trainer it makes no difference and just eats into any money made. with no trainer the boxer hardly ever wins and you slips down the rankings, earning less each time. if you bother with a trainer, you only get to train him once before you're in the red and the end of the game is then fast aproaching. and the same applies to doc's, cutmen, scouts and the rest of staff your supposed to have. in short no matter what you do you'll only earn enough to keep going for a short few seasons then hemorage money till everybody leaves or you uninstall and thow it away.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Someone bought me this for my birthday as I really like boxing. Great game trying to steer your protege to the title shot, was up far too long into the night setting out training and planning opponents. Really fun game.
