Cinemaware ended its acclaimed TV Sports series on a high note, with something that remains one of the best boxing games ever made. TV Sports Boxing lets you create your own boxer from a wide range of body parts and boxing styles. You start with a fixed number of skill points, which include punching power, stamina, conditioning, strength and cuts. You start with a team of trainer and promoter. When you make money from winning bouts, you can hire better trainers and promoters.

Your goal is to fight your way to higher rankings and eventually champion. Your promoter will suggest opponents, but you can accept or decline hoping for a different opponent. The higher-ranking your opponent is, the more money you make from the fight. The fighting itself is a lot of fun and requires skills as well as reflexes. You learn what your opponents' weaknesses are and exploit them. The digitized boxers on-screen have excellent animation with convincing swing hooks or uppercuts, and it is easy to tell when your boxer is taking a beating.

With fluid animation, lots of atmosphere (Cinemaware's hallmark), great control interface, and a wide variety of opponents that have truly different boxing styles, TV Sports Boxing is a must-play for every boxing fan.
