Knockout Kings 2000
Review

A pretty game with an identity crisis
While pretty, gameplay becomes a morass of button-pushing with little strategy.
As soon as you turn the power on, Knockout Kings 2000 comes out fighting with beautiful characters, flowing moves, and a plethora of fighters to choose from. However, after about five minutes with the title players will realize it has all the staying power of Pee-Wee Herman and all the depth of a Paulie Shore movie. Very quickly players will realize the game requires a series of button mashing in order to beat opponents, and any cool combos that you might expect come only from pressing one of the C buttons to let it fly. While trying to maintain a sim-like front, the game delves into arcade action at bizarre points, like when a boxer manages to get enough hits in a row and then they can let loose with a super-mega punch. While the sheer number of boxers (25), ranging from Joe Frazier to Sugar-Ray Leonard, and the pretty graphics are nice, the game hardly qualifies as a fighting favorite.
