Description from the packaging.

Come face-to-face with a heavyweight champ!

Too many boxing games place the player outside the ring looking in. How can you experience the adrenaline jolt of landing a crisp uppercut from the cheap seats?

Now you can literally "enter the ring" with TKO- the boxing game that sticks you right on the canvas, staring straight into the eyes of a prizefighter bent on rearranging your face.

Weigh-in the contenders. TKO's features make it a unanimous decision.

  • Split screen, arcade-style boxing action gives you a dual, first-person perspective. Watch yourself hit and get hit.
  • Witness the punishment of the punches on each fighter's face. They swell. They bruise. They turn black and blue.
  • Calibrate each boxer's strengths. Is his left better than his right? Is he cat-like or a clubber? Does he run out of band-aids or run out of gas?
  • Fight a stable of hungry contenders, each with his own ringside manner.
  • Slug it out with large, animated fighters. Pick on somebody your own size.
  • One or two player capability: pummel friends or clobber the computer.
  • Aerial-cam shows your position in the ring.

You can run. But you can't hide.

Fine tune your fighter. Adjust everything from the power of his punch to his tendency to cut. Did we say cut? You bet, champ. If you're soft, it'll look like you had a bout with Freddy Krueger.

Reach out and touch someone. TKO puts you a jab away from a killer. Hammer his head. Beat on his body. Not stopping for cuts and bruises. And the bell won't save you. But guts will.

Blow by blow stats provide a complete breakdown of each round. How many punches have you thrown? How many more can you take? Can you reach back for something extra or will you throw in the towel?
