Yes this game sucks for real, no excuses, probably the worst fighting game ever made.
But that's not the point.
My 5 years old cousins ♥♥♥♥ing love this game, they don't even need to learn how to play it, they just start the game, i'm relaxed, they play, i'm fine.

100/100 would entertain kids with this crap again.

It certainly contradicts the title of the game, "Real" because at best it is an extremely basic arcade boxing game.

For those looking for Fight Night comparisons, you'll be bitterly disappointed and probably not like the game.
For those looking for an arcade boxing game to play at times with friends, you might like this game.

This was the first game I used my Steam Link with, so with a friend I had fun playing this. Its quick, its really simple & easy to pick up, and its guaranteed to make a few laughs if with company.

The enormous downside to this game, is that mostly everything is dreadful. Boxer customisation, commentary, physics, not to mention the single player aspect doesn't have a storyline. But I mean honestly, for £3.99 on steam your not looking for an AAA game. I purchased the game on a deal so it cost me 20% of its "now" price, so with all things considered and the price that I paid I am fine about that.

But the reason I am giving this a thumbs down rather then a thumbs up is because of the Developers ridiculous game description, which in essence is a complete lie. Vivid Games describes it as "ultra-realistic" with "incredibly deep gameplay" with a "comprehensive career mode" which is an absolute joke. If it wasn't for me being such a huge boxing fan and the lack of boxing content on steam, I would have completely skipped this.

Well. I generally do not like to diss on the product of other people's hardwork; viz-a-viz negatively criticize a developer's game, but only if I smell a single drop hard work's sweat in the same zip code of the 'product' I am reviewing.

Let me give you a little background, I have spent more than half my childhood playing fighting games on my good old ps2 and the other half I spent tending my sore thumbs after over-playing Fight night games from EA.
With that said you might think I'd compare this game with the Fight Night series but to be honest this is not even a half arsed attempt to make a proper clone of that game.

Anyone wanting to try this game, I'd stop you right there and rather suggest you to try the old Fight night series of Ps2 or Ps3. Off course you'd be downgrading graphically but fighting game's are not just about graphics. The Fight night games of Ps2 will beat this game hands down in every department - other than graphics off course. Speaking of which they aren't really that great to begin with here.

The Good :

┼ The game is on PC. Cheaper than buying an used Ps2 and Fight Night CD's.

┼ Get to pounce a HHH / Kofi Kingston lookalike.

The Bad

┼ Everything.. it's not even an early access game and it has a lot of bugs including getting you and the ai opponent stuck in a groggy state for an entire round and no keys would work - not even the Game pause / ESC key.

┼ A bad re-skin attempt of Fight Night games, the developer must be in the wrong industry, this is NOT the iphone/android game-app market.

The Ugly

┼ Even if I forget every OTHER ugly thing about this game, which includes - but is not limited to : lack of customization for characters, lack of country flags / nationalities etc etc .. despite all that.. the ONE most annoying thing about this game is that it reuses the theme music from Falling Skies (not the game).. albeit a remixed version.. a very annoying remixed version.

┼ My Rating : 1/5 NOT RECOMMENDED Nuff said..

The name is a lie. Real Boxing is far from realistic, bad controls and punches that don't land. Sorry but you missed me with this one.

Vivid Games mainly specialises in gaming apps for smart phones. Real Boxing is such a game (its sequel with its Rocky homage could be pretty cool and probably a more refined version of this game) which sports an arcade style boxing game that can be a good pastime if you are patient enough to wait for your next AAA game on your wishlist until its released or receives a substantial discount.

The problem is that Real Boxing was not a good pastime for me. I hated the frequent FPS drops, the mindless grinding that is needed otherwise you simply cannot complete the next tournament. Visiting the gym to increase your stamina, strength and speed is possible after every 5 matches (only participation counts; winning these is not mandatory) or you can spend your hard-earned credits to increase your stats right away. So, you go to a quick match then quit after 5 wins or you repeat the same tournament you have already completed - rinse and repeat.

The simplistic menu design and the overall gaming experience clearly indicates this is a mobile port. There are, however, better games than this and perhaps picking its AAA equivalent is a much, much better choice. Real Boxing is not necessarily a bad game - it just does not have anything to do with real boxing.
