Contender United Kingdom Retail Box ArtReady to go the distance? Then get your gloves on, since this knockout fighting game boasts a variety of bouts and boxers, and offers four modes of play: versus, exhibition, career, and tournament. Whether you just want to go mano a mano with a buddy, or for the championship, you will need to do more than just randomly punch a few buttons to progress to the higher levels. We found the controls for each hook, punch, or block to be fairly easy to learn. However, to really land some punches, you'll need to master an assortment of advanced combo moves. In the career mode, you must conquer each of 40 challengers to become the world boxing champion. With each progressive fight, you will build up your strength, speed, and endurance. However, even the best boxers will invariably suffer from a few bangs and bruises. As you slug your way to the top of the career mode, you will unlock several secret challengers for the exhibition mode. Gameplay in Contender can be experienced through numerous camera angles, including a dizzying first-person mode. Be sure to turn up the volume, since you will receive assistance from your trainer, who screams out helpful tips in the background during your bout. Further help is given through informative statistics that are spewed out at the end of each round. There are also cool replay options, so you can review each punch. --Michael Byer Pros: Easy-to-learn gameplay Secret characters Cons: Graphics are not as advanced as some other boxing games
