I was skipping through the games in my local G-Force when I came across Victorious Boxing 2. I was skeptical but also really intrigued. Boxing games for me are an enigma, Fight Night was getting rave reviews and when I played it I must admit it was so realistic but for me that was a problem. To win at Fight Night you just move in punch, move out block and repeat that til you knock a guy down, it's just too boring.
Unfortunatley this is the same again only with a different look and presentation, the most fun boxing game i've played to date was Ready to Rumble. At least that had something extra.
Graphics - They're ok, nothing startling but they look good enough for a boxing game or any fighting game really, not in the league of any of the Fight Night games though.
Gameplay - its easy enough to figure out how to punch etc but for me as soon as you get your timing right this game is far too easy.
Overall - It's an ok effort, maybe if you're a boxing entusiast you'll like it, theres plenty modes in it like challenges and stuff but I just wasn't feeling this game, I think Boxing is just a bad sport to make a game of.
Victorious Boxers 2 is a very confusing game. Not in the sense that it's hard to decipher - what's actually on the disc is a pretty straightforward boxing simulation based on a popular Japanese manga. The difficulty arises when you want to read up about it over yon interwibble.
