Summary

Boxing Champs is a fun little boxing game, going for an arcade Rock em Sock em robots approach, the game is easy to pick up and fun as hell to play. Career mode is one note but fine and multiplayer obviously extends the life overall but again its a game you play every now and then. It’s worth a punt for a no-frills over the top boxing game.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
