Roger: Despite fuzzy, naffola graphics that look like the view through my bathroom window, Bruno's attempts to deal with eight different sparring partners stands head, shoulders and boxing gloves above the competition.

This sparring simulation offers the same back of head shot as Rocco but the knockouts require a great deal more in the way of knuckle-dusting. On top of which movements, fight tactics and programming twists, like the knock down feature, make for maintained interest and complication. Slugging through the screens with our Frank saw me swimming in sweat until I was left out for the count. But it was worth it just to see the crowd go frantic at the front. 4/5 HIT

Rick: If you're gonna beat the brains out of someone, then it's better to do it here. 3/5 HIT

Ross: In the battle of the boxers, it's a knockout to Frank by one fall and two submissions. (Surely some mistake! Ed) 3/5 HIT

I've seen that face somewhere before. What on earth's the Editor doing in... (OK. you can stop right there! Ed). P'raps it's a government health warning on the dangers of boxing.

These rounds start at zero and go up to three minutes That's a mighty long time to be trading punches!

Luckily, you don't have to see Frank's face if you're letting him take a beating. Even uck ier. he can't come out and sort you out!

If you push that hit ratio up to the KO symbol, you'll really be able 10 knock your opponent for six. He'll be rockin' and a reelin...
