Thud, crash, groan, smack, crunch. Yes, I had loads of trouble getting out of WH
Smith's without paying for this one. When I finally did arrive back at home
(£4 down on the whole deal), I found it to be a hilarious boxing game.
Two very unrealistic people stand in a ring and fight each other, while the ref
wobbles around and the crowd calls out insults.
Matters are made more interesting by the illegal moves you can use.
As well as high and low punches, you can kick, knee, head-butt and all
but take a machete to your opponent.
You start off by tackling a weedy guy called Mild Martin (with a name
like that, he deserves to have his body kicked off him). Beat him and
harder opponents line up to take you on. You can also play another
human opponent, which is more fun.
It's fairly amusing but Pro Boxing Simulator isn't fast or smooth
enough to warrant a withdrawal from your bank (TSB - The Shoebox Bank).
