I did experience some glitches in this Beta, but overall, it seemed to hold up steadily. But regardless, HBO Boxing
is made up of three different modes: Single Bout, Career, and Pay-Per-View. In the Single Bout, you face either the computer or a friend with all real boxers, or a created version. This consists of both men and women boxers. For the Career, you create a boxer and start from the bottom, where you fight your way up the rankings, all the while improving your strength and such. You also hire management to help motivate and train you. The better the management, the better you train. And finally, the Pay-Per-View is a tournament setting, where you have between three to twelve boxers vying to be the Champ.
I found that it seemed to be a slugfest at times, and other times not. In fact, during my career, there was a few times where my opponent didn?t even fight back through an entire round. But when they did fight, I was falling more often than not. This isn?t the final version, so I?m expecting it will improve by the release.
