From the opening exaltation of Michael Buffer's cry, 'let's get ready to rumble', you are invited to the cartoonish slugfest that is Ready 2 Rumble Boxing. Yes, it looks like a cartoon, not at all realistic, but does that take away any of the fun? Absolutely not.

Choose a caricature, sorry, boxer, and start your training regime in the gym. Alternatively, you can build your own boxer from scratch to take on all-comers. In this particular option you can give your boxer his own taunts, insults, even a moustache. There are innumerable punch combinations, and as you progress toward the ultimate accolade, the game does become more of a challenge.

This game is a lot of fun, even if the 'boxing simulation' tag is pushing it a bit. Ear-biting tomfoolery rather than edge of the seat tension, then.
