Dec 23, 2018This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Very immersive, Very fun, very exhausting...and very very very very very very short campaign. As soon as I had my first fight I was sold. I was looking forward to progress my boxer and my career. I had to stop playing on my first session because I was too exhausted from my fights and the training you do. The comments on the radio announced my upcoming fights and I felt I was at the beginning of my career when I beat "the tiger" and had to face the "soon to be retired guy". The radio talked about a champion who was waiting for a challenge after that guy retirement and I thought that challenge would be me.
Then, I receive a call from my wife telling me that I had done something the night before but I couldn't remember and then I'm transported back in time to fight a bar bouncer. That was fun and I thought it was the beginning of a side story close to the movie. I was all pump up to rise to glory when suddenly.... the game tells me that was my last fight and the campaign was over. WHAT???? I ONLY FACED 6 BOXERS???
All the review tells you that the campaign is short but common on! 6 fighters. It's not like each fight demands a long scenario to be written! I must admit that the training was becoming a bit repetitive and soon it would have become tiresome but I was so disappointed about the lack of content in the campaign that it took me a good week to get back to it.
Yesterday I would have score that game a 3 but fortunately I slept on it and told myself that it was still a very good game and there is plenty of content to fight for. The simulator is good. It doesn't do you any good to throw punches after punches. You need to protect, avoid big punches and throw punches at the right time. I even raised my hands in triumph after a particular long combat because I felt I had worked for it. But when I buy a game called "Creed" related to the Rocky's movie, I intend to get a game that feels like a movie with a storytelling of some sort and when your wife calls you, you think this is what you're getting. But nope! It's like they wanted to do that sort of game but ran out of money.
I would have played that game longer if it would have had a good story to follow because the simulation part of it is excellent. Having at least 20 boxers to face in the campaign would have put that game at the top of all VR game I have. For now I can barely recommend it...but I do just because, the very short time I had with it was intense and a lot of fun. I do hope DLC will come to the rescue of this game though.… Expand
