I have heard a lot about Victorious Boxers but I have never actually played it since I don't have a PS2.

Mike Tyson's Punchout without a doubt. Oh and Fight Night is pretty good too.

Anybody remember "Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing" for the Sega Genesis? That game started it all for me as far as videogame boxing goes... "Legends of the Ring" for the SNES was alright too..

My first boxing game was Mike Tyson's boxing. It still is today one of my all-time favorite games period. There was a game known as Ringking that was brought out in the 80's that was one of the first simulation type boxing games that I had played for the NES. I call it a simulation because it had a cornerman that you could not control, the ability to improve attributes such as speed, power, and stamina and you were able to watch your fighters progression over a long career. The Sega Genesis era is when I had Buster Douglas boxing as well as Evander's game and Greatest Heavyweights. I loved Greatest Heavyweights and even for a game that is well over 10 years old, it represented its legends way better than Fight Night ever did.

Mike Tyson's Punchout Was The Sickest Boxing Game Ive Ever Played- Until Fight Night Came Along And Then Fn Round2 Comes Out And Thats The Boxing Game Rules All. Every Now And Then I Take Out The Nintendo And Play Punchout And That Speaks Volumes On What Kind Of Game That Is.

I voted Fight Night 2004, but there will ALWAYS be a place in my heart for Punch Out and Super Punch Out.

there was another game that was very good. I can't remember the title exactly but it was something like victorious boxing or something. Anyways, the only flaw was that it looked cartoonish, but other than that it is the best game out there.

fight night round 2 is pretty bad ass

Hands down the best boxing game, pound for pound, is DEFINITELY Victorious Boxers 2.

Fight Night Round 2 is a ****ing joke in comparison. And I think Fight Night Round 2 is pretty darn good.

VB2 is just a much more well rounded game. The computer AI is much better. There are lots of styles, where FN Round 2 only has three styles. And the way the Round 2 styles are doesn't really change how the fighter fights.

Really, there is only one style in FN Round 2. What the differences really are in FN Round 2 is opponent's aggression level. They can either come in all-out like brawlers, run their ass away like *******, or a balanced attack. But any way they come, their punches are thrown the same exact way. Southpaw doesn't affect **** either really. Footwork is useless, etc.

Victorious Boxers 2, you have at least 10 different FIGHTING STYLES. You really notice a huge difference in fighting.

Okay I'm on this one boxer that I just can't retire cause I put so much into him. He's 27-28 and has a record of 100-0 (98 KOs), just won his 100th match recently. He's the WBC Heavyweight champion. He has ****ty power and really ****ty speed because I brought him up from strawweight when he turned pro all the way to heavyweight gradually over 11 years.

Tony The Tiger Capri.

When Tony turned pro, he started with a basic In-fighting style. After 15 or so bouts, I changed him to a boxer-puncher, allowing him to counter better. He was less aggressive, but he got knockouts more easily against bigger guys (everyone has always been more powerful than him in almost every fight I've had because I'd move him up in weight a lot). In his 18th bout, Tony took his first opponent decision. It was the first opponent to really give Tony many problems. It was his second 8 round bout against a guy who was used to 8 rounders and above. He only barely beat the guy, 5 rounds to 3. In the rematch, Tony Capri came out and pressed the action more, even dropped the opponent, but still could not put him away. Those fights were at 115 lbs. Tony moved up to 122 in his next match to fight for the #1 contendership for the 122 lb Japanese national title.

I could go on about this fighter, but I won't. I just wanted to demonstrate how in-depth you can go with a created fighter in career mode.

The game doesn't have real fighters, but you really don't care once you get into the game much at all. Now it does have some real fighters, just named differently for copyright purposes. I know Tyson, Ali, Frazier, Jack Dempsey, Holmes, Marciano, and some other heavyweights are on it. Then I know there's a Ray Leonard, a Hagler, a Hearns for sure, and plenty more scattered out. I'm pretty sure one guy is Nigel Benn, though I only saw him early before I knew much about Benn. He sure as hell fought aggressive as hell like him.

Get this game, you won't regret it.

Fight Night Round 3, which is slated for release for both XBox 360 (March-April '06, I think) and the PS3 (July-August '06), will have Mike Tyson and De La Hoya in it. They have also apparently fixed fighting styles for those of us who actually track the subtle differences between fighters. ie: Ali's hand speed and footwoork; Frazier's ability to always push fighters to his left; Tyson's bobbing, weaving, and explosive combos, etc.

Sounds like fun.

I'll believe it when I see it. If I'm wrong, I'll eat my words, gladly, but FN Round 3, no way in hell it actually has those promised different styles of the fighters. That **** takes time to do, and they haven't had enough time. Think about it, Fight Night round 2 came out last April. Obviously they were developing FN R3 since they had something for May for the E3 convention. Now Feb is the release date for the PS2 version of FN R3. That's 10 months. And EA is working on this game on more platforms than ever before. It will be available for the PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360, PSP, (maybe gamecube?), and PS3. And EA has had to adapt to new technology with the PS3 and Xbox 360.

They do all that in 10 months, along with getting fighters' unique styles? Umm...no, not going to happen. People don't seem to realize how big of an update it would be to have each fighters' unique fighting style. This is something they'll put off until at least next year. Remember FN 2004 was supposed to have the ability to change weight classes. We didn't get that until R2.

Graphics wise, FN R3 will be AMAZING, at least on the next gen systems. Gameplay wise, there won't be much improvement, if any. I'm just hoping they get rid of the gaymakers b/c that **** levels the playing field way too much for those that suck at FN.

so you're one of those talentless *****es that abuse the gaymakers. yeah it is just a video game, but quite annoying when people like myself who are actually good at the game have to deal with your kind.

haymakers will be back in Round 3, which is one of many reasons why EA's games will continue to be inferior to the VB series.

Now supposedly VB All-stars drops in the US in January. It won't do **** for sales, but maybe at least the boxing scene people can get it to see what I mean by the huge difference in gameplay.

1. Super Punch-Out!! (Nintendo - Arcade - 1985)
2. Punch-Out!! (Nintendo - Arcade - 1984)
3. Super Punch-Out!! (Nintendo - SNES - 1994)
4. Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! (Nintendo - NES - 1987)

I own a Nintendo Punch-Out!! arcade machine, and have both the Punch-Out!! and Super Punch-Out!! board sets for it; and can marathon both games. The Punch-Out!! series from Nintendo are the only boxing games I have ever cared for; first and foremost the two original arcade games, and to a somewhat lesser degree, the home console versions.

They aren't realistic but they are humorous, entertaining and addictive.

see there's no way people would be calling the Fight Night games that good if they've played the VB games, especially the ones after Victorious Boxers 1. VB 1 is better overall than Fight Night, but that game is almost 6 years old and is even able to compete with these boxing games today. So imagine how good the later VB games are.

You guys should all import dammit. It's cheap enough now and piss easy, and very f'n worth it.

he means mod your PS2, not import. www.consolesource.com
buy the fliptop and swap magic discs and one can play import games, or back up copies of their games. or so I've heard (to avoid trouble).

and install the fliptop yourself because it is really really really really easy to do and you'll feel so ripped off if you pay a guy $10 to do it (or so I've heard, again). :D
