If ever a film was overdue for the console treatment it is Rocky. The game is full of the atmosphere of all five films. From Rocky's humble beginnings to his crowning glory as the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, this game has the lot. Take control of the Italian Stallion in your effort to beat the rest--including Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang (aka Mr T), Ivan Drago and Tommy Gunn--and be the best. Like most boxing games it has the usual exhibition and sparring modes, but being licensed from a film it also has the all-important movie mode, which is where the fun starts. Progress through the fights to unlock each new opponent en route to meeting your big movie rivals. After each fight you'll need to improve your fighting prowess by training; you can do this the hard way, under your own steam, or opt for the auto-train mode which improves your precious stats for your next bout. Finish the movie mode and unlock the knockout tournament and prepare for some intense button bashing. With the ring full of boxing sims the question is "Which one packs the biggest punch?" Rocky, with its great graphics, great combos and the all-important great gameplay, is the top contender. --Rob Holliday This review refers to the Xbox version of the game
