Bought Rocky yesterday.

First impressions:

Excellent.

Best presentation I've seen in a movie licence, it's pure Rocky. If you like the films, you'll be sucked right in.

The boxing is great. I thought I could go in bashing the buttons and win, and got knocked down time and again. You've got to use a fair amount of tactics to win, keep moving, dodge, and land the combos when you can to get anywhere.

Even better, in the 'movie mode' you only get 3 lives, after those you have to start from the start, so you'll have to get good at the game to finish it. Unless you cheat and keep going back to an old save file!

I got past Apollo on my first go, but lost my last life shorty after, and went straight back and started again.

the training modes are cool too, theres a huge learning curve with them though, so you'll score poorly to begin with, and after practice I was no better than average, so still more to learn.

I'm having a great deal of fun with this.

Anyone else got it?

I really like the look of this game, but I was kind of worried that it wouldn't work with the Cube controller. I guess it does though? I have an unclaimed GAD, so I think this might be the one. Decisions, decisions.

Okay then.

Lets say, if you win, you give me a game. Of my choice.

:)

I have attempted a few over the past few weeks. Most turn into incoherent babble by the end, which is a shame.

But I did win ED and Mario in about a month, so there is still hope!

To many decent games......not fair!

We complain when there are too few, and when there are too many.

It makes me picky. Ah well. I'll have to settle for Metroid, Zelda, Skies Of Arcadia and Resi Zero.

Too bad.
