Let’s face it. EA Sports is carrying Sony and their little black box of fun on its colossal shoulders. Madden 2001 has been the #1 PS2 seller for over 10 weeks and SSX seems to like the view from the #3 spot on PC Data’s chart. NBA Live 2001 has been gold (final code) for weeks now but has delayed once again to, later on, this month. Knockout Kings 2001 was [along with Madden] the showstopper at E3 this year and we’ve been waiting for the day we actually got to play it.
The Game We Were Waiting For
That day is now. First of all, this is a game that you’ll definitely want to drop the cash to pick up. The multiple modes of play including an in-depth career mode, intuitive controls, super-realistic graphics, and interactive audio make this one of the most eye-catching games to come through the GameSpy office in quite some time.
Looks Like There are women Boxers
We’re going to skip over the game’s visuals since the accompanied 40 screenshots and 3 movies should allow you to take a peek yourself. We even have the very first screenshots of women boxers in KO Kings – lots of rumors, but here they are. The screens just don’t do justice to a nice TV with S-Video, but that’s to be expected when you’re dealing with this much detail. Don’t miss the videos!
You’ll Need To Learn Boxing Skills
If you’re looking for something akin to Ready 2 Rumble (DC), stop reading now. With Knockout Kings 2001, staying light on your feet, counter-punching, establishing the jab, going to the body, and plenty of other boxing intricacies are required if you want to win. At first glance, boxing is pretty simple – punch, punch, and maybe a block now and then. Well, there’s a lot more to it, and thankfully your trainer in career mode will teach you the different facets of the sweet science as your boxer improves. The controls liken to the simplicity of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, and it doesn’t get much better than that.
