This review is from: Fight Night Round 2 (PS2) (Video Game)
This is a great game, has some good features, the create a boxer mode is back, there's a new training mode and a hard hits mode where you fight until some gets knocked out or whoever has the most KO's after 15 rounds. It was great at first but I have basically completed it, once winning the title there is nothing much to do apart from defend it. It becomes repetitive after a while and you see that you being doing the same in every match, even though the new haymaker system keeps you interested for a while, there is nothing more left after that. You can go for the other titles like the middleweight or welterweight etc but this will just be a repeat of what you did in the heavyweight but with different boxers. The biggest dissappointment was that there was no network play so you could go online and test your skills, EA put this in for the US version but not for the UK and European versions.
Overall it is a good game but it won't keep you playing for a long time as a single player, but instead of the online mode, you'll have to just compete with friends for now.
New Haymaker System (Always one punch away from a KO)
Create a boxer
No online mode
Only 3 Game modes (Career, Hard Hits, My Gym)
Boring after a week or two
Better than the Fight Night 2004.
Maybe rent it for a week to decide to buy it or not.
