- World championship boxing manager -

It's nothing new to people who know me that I don't particularly like sports games but occasionally I do like to take a look at sports management games. World championship boxing manager is exactly as the title suggest a boxing management game. You play as a boxing manager and you can manage a maximum of four fighters at the same time. You'll have to arrange matches, schedule training and take care of any injuries.

The first thing to do is to chose the fighters you want to manage and once you do you can give them a nickname and you'll have to make a contract promising them a certain rank after a year that you have manged them. All the fighters available are just starting so most of them will have one or more weaknesses that might be their downfall but as their manager it's your duty to notice them and to improve them in those areas. It's up to you how to train them though and you tell them to train on things like a bunching bag, jump rope or weights. These will affects the boxer in different areas as training with weights will increase their strength but at the same time decrease their speed and it's up to you to find a good compromise.

Training a boxer is only part of the job though and you'll have to find good opponents for them to fight. You can call up a number of different agents and you can ask if one of their fighters would like a match with your fighters. When you come to an agreement about when the fight is going to take place you can focus your boxers training on a specific opponent for the amount of weeks you agreed upon with the agent. These are your day to day affairs and when you are done for the day you can go on to the next until it's friday which is fightnight. Here you can go to watch any fights that take place but if it's a particulary uninteresting one you can always just skip straight to the bar instead. The fight is only shown as commentary and you won't actually see any action.

As far as manager games go this one has even less action than most others as other games at least show some form of plays and stuff. That said the type of game doesn't really require it so it's up to you what to make of the game. I found it a bit too dry for my taste and the subject matter doesn't really interest me either. This is one type of sportsgame that I prefer as boxing games are usually action packed but if you really like managing game there aren't a lot of them around so give it a try.

Overal rating: 6/10
