Boxers are never eye-candy. But here? Man, they’re ugly. Vaguely flesh-toned textures mapped onto potato-chip packets; these crinkled monstrosities tragically gambol around the ring waiting for another of their human/origami half-breed kind to punch their soul out. Ugliness also seeps from the 2D crowd that violently shudders on the top screen. Visuals broken, DSI set about ruining the Showtime brand. With not an official boxer in sight, rendering the license worthless, you fight with lame caricatures: Lazy Lorenzo, Sixpack Sam, Punchbag Pat.
