JIVE Magazine has posted their review of Fight Night Round 2, giving it a rating of "two pairs of gloves and some wrist tape".
"Fight Night Round 2 lives up to its expectations. As the follow-up to a revolutionary game, it shouldn’t aspire to reinvent itself, and it doesn’t. The game can’t look any better than it already does. The strategy elements are heightened, and former Fight Night 2004 button mashers are forced to adhere to Total Punch Control now that the Haymaker can only be thrown using the analog sticks."
