Don King Presents: Prizefighter delivers the deepest, most authentic and entertaining boxing experience ever seen in a video game. Boxing is about more than just a night at the fights; it’s about building a career and rising to stardom. 2K Sports has captured that in Don King Presents: Prizefighter – players must train, overcome adversity, get promoted, and avoid temptation to rise in notoriety, all while watching the story of their rise to champion unfold in a unique, live-action, sports documentary style that features real-life greats from the world of boxing. Here’s what players have to look forward to:

Live the Boxing Life – A full career mode offers players a comprehensive story line that follows them through real-life boxing situations such as injuries, facing stacked odds against a corrupt judge, and more. These dramatic moments are told in a sports documentary style using the voices and images of world famous boxers and celebrities from the boxing world.

The Best in the Ring and in the Booth – Don King Presents: Prizefighter offers up a roster of 30 licensed, active boxers and 10 classic, retired boxers. Classics include the likes of Larry Holmes, Ken Norton, and even the Cinderella Man himself, James Braddock. The play-by-play commentary is provided by none other than HBO Boxing broadcasters Emmanuel Stewart and Jim Lampley.

Knock Out! – The developers at 2K Sports weren’t afraid to get their hands dirty when it came to fine-tuning the fight mechanics in Don King Presents: Prizefighter. Cumulative effect punching and surprise one-punch knockdowns and knockouts will keep gamers on the edge of their seats during every match. Height, weight, reach, and strength all play a part in how well a fighter stacks up against the enemy.

Hit the Virtual "Gym" – The unique online mode in Don King Presents: Prizefighter allows players to form and compete in "gyms" of friends or any available competitor. Players can choose from any of the legendary or active champions in Don King Presents: Prizefighter, or use up to 8 of their own customised boxers in this feature.

There are a surprising number of recognisable faces in this game. There are British Superstars like Calzaghe, Benn and Eubank as well as a host of world champions like Pavlik and Abraham.

The gameplay is good as you are looking through your fighter at your opponent. You move the boxer with the nunchuk and if you have a balance board you can bob and weave. Don't be put off if you don't have a balance board as you can still play the game without it.

Punches are thrown in a similar way to those on wii sports but you also gain power punches when you land good shots or make your opponent miss. I have noticed that some of the punches don't always come out right such as when I try to throw a hook it sometimes comes out as an uppercut, but this could be down to me not yet mastering the moves after only three days of playing it.

There are no 12 round fights which at first seems a little disapointing but is probably for the best if you are standing throwing punches yourself. It means you can get through more fights before tiring yourself out. Also I have not yet gone more than two rounds in any of my fights because every one has ended in a knock out.

The training and story (career) modes are both designed to keep you coming back to the game, as the more you train the better your fighter gets. The story involves your character (The Kid) working his way through the ranks, as well as challenges to win classic fights.

The Wii seems to be waiting for a great boxing game and while this is not perfect, is the best anyone has come up with so far. It has a realism but still keeps an arcade feel so that anyone can play it.

1st off can I start by saying how much I love the boxing game on Wii Fit. However, as anyone who has played it will know it does have it's limitations. Therefore, I purchased this title as I was after something a bit more gritty, with more of a sense of realism. On the graphics front it's by far the best I've seen for the Wii & the choice of boxers & training modes are excellent. However, the punching can be a little diffecult to get used to as body blows rely on a combination of buttons & movements. In fact I've lost count as to the number of times I've accidently paused the game just as I'm about to throw a killer punch!

You can play with or without the balance board but I personal found it to be more of a hindrance than a help. Also, if you're like me & you're over 6 foot tall then unless your telly is wall mounted you might find the camera angles when using the balance board a bit off putting.

Sadly my two biggest grips are;

1) In order to move around the ring you use the joystick on the Nunchuck controller. However, this is about as responsive as a fork in jelly & at times it can feel like your wasting valuable energy chasing your opponent round the ring.

2) It's just not that much fun! the developers seem to have missed the point that it's neither violent enough (Fight Night3) to get your heart pumping, or silly enough (Punch Out!!!) to be fun.

As an ex boxer I am not generally impressed with fighting games,however, I have had this for a couple of weeks and can't keep off it. It is by far the best and most realistic fighting game that I have seen. This game works well with Wii Balance Board but can also be used without it. The story line is stereotypical but I bought it for the workout value and am not disappointed. This game ensures that I raise a good sweat whilst giving my muscles a good workout. As with any game, you can take short cuts but if you make the effort to try and do everything properly you will feel and see the benefit. Simple enough for the whole family to use and enjoy whilst also making you push yourself harder to beat your previous records.

I find the trouble with fight or training sims on the Wii is that they are either too responsive, or not responsive enough; Don King Boxing generally falls into the latter of these categories.
I've only tried this game with the nunchuks, so I can't say what balance board game play is like. It is quite fun to play and can be very satisfying when you land a decent punch combination, but these victories are generally reserved for the earlier bouts on story mode. The more advanced fighters require a bit more strike-block-evasion and combo skill than this game can produce. Aligning yourself with the sensor can be tricky; often you may find yourself punching one-handed, meaning combos are out of the question sometimes. Gameplay can rapidly fall apart until it's flail your arms about like a kid on Wii Sports Boxing time!!! Having to use the buttons and joystick on the 'chuks can spoil it badly too.
Overall a fun game to play, and has a fair bit of longevity as a fitness supplement, but don't expect to box like a pro with this control scheme.

I love the boxing on Wii sports but hate the way you have to flick the controllers instead of properly boxing. I love the boxing motion on Wii fit but hate that it is only available as a rhythm exercise, not as proper boxing.

This game manages to combine the best graphics I have seen on the Wii with a control system that is worse than the boxing on Wii sports. It is not fun, it is not realistic it is back to controller waving. It often takes small movements as you change stance as a punch and is a complete waste of space.
