Boxing review

Reviewed December 14, 2008

Jackie Curtis says: "Despite its rudimentary appearance, fundamental match rules, and the fact the only sound effect present is the ungraceful grunt of worn leather connecting with human hide, Boxing still manages to present an engaging experience, albeit for a short period of time, due to its scoring system. Landed punches by either Floyd or Samuel will be tallied as either one or two points, depending on the accuracy and impact of the blow, with the total scores posted at the top of the screen. And this is where strategy starts to come into play."

Boxing review

Reviewed March 30, 2011

japanaman says: "Boxing by Activision, is one of the first boxing video games ever created (if not the first) for the home video game console. The game play is simple, yet enjoyable. You play as a Boxer 1 (AKA White Lightning) who challenges Boxer 2 (AKA Black N’ Decker) to a friendly exhibition match."
