RICKY: Meet mean man Mick The Meat Kicker - it's a name to be reckoned with. But I don't reckon Kick Boxing is up to much.

The playing area is done in isometric 3-D, but this doesn't affect the gameplay, apart from making it hard to see.

You progress through the levels by killing off one opponent after another, and it's no more inspiring than it sounds.

ROBIN: I'd forgotten just how bad this is! Firebird's representation of the fast contact sport is appalling. The characters jerk around the screen drunkenly, performing poorly-drawn moves that appear physically impossible. There are better, similar games; Kick Boxing is cheap, nasty and almost unplayable.
