I bought OXM yesterday, and it has 6 playable demos from the top games of last year, I guess for people who got an Xbox over Christmas (there's also 7 other, new games)

Anyway, I decided to try the Rocky one out in two player with my flat mate, and it's bloody brilliant! Another flatmate came in and watched us fight, and he got really into it just watching. Much shouting and abuse continued for the next 90 seconds when the round was over. So we played again. And again. And again. And....

Anyway, I want to get the full version, but there's one thing I'm worried about: What's the single player mode like? The multiplayer is spot on, and I guess with 15 three minute rounds it the fights can be hugely entertaining. But I don't really want to spend out 40 for a game that I only play on multiplayer.

People will no doubt scream abuse at me for saying this, but I think the best boxing game I've ever played has to be the Ready 2 Rumble games. Wether or not you like the characters, I think the system was great as you could put together your own combos for as long as the stamina bar lasted. Plus having that bar made you think about when to back off a bit.
If theres anything I'd like from Rocky to be put into the R2R series, its the dodging moves.
I'm hoping a R2R 3 game will be on the way for X-Box. :-)

The game was really bad. Only good if you like the Rocky series. Still... even that was dragged out and just turned sour. I am all for the original and maybe even the next two... then it hurt to watch. A lot like this game. Novelty wears off and all I ask for is a Danger Mouse game!

LOL it is true, the ther guy doesn't really give you half a chance, you take one swing which he blocks then unloads a 15 hit combo on you.

Dont blame the game because your spakk-handed attempts resulted in a beat-down.
Play better.

Bah. Battle Engine Aquilla is decent, Not average!

Rocky is a cool game, Kicks some rear in multiplayer though.

Fable's a while off yet. ;-) I'm gonna ask for Indiana Jones. Oh and I just tried out Rocky - what a skank pile of tosh !
I was getting smashed by Apollo with merciless combos - problem is, fat mong Rocky was too sluggish to string much together. At best I was getting 2 hit combos in and even they did practically sod all damage while 1 punch from Apollo knocked 7 shades of shat off my life bar.
Thank god for demo disks ! >:-(
