It's been a long time between drinks for major boxing games. The last being EA's Fight Night series which hung up its gloves way back in 2011. Others have come and gone, but nothing you would consider 'big time'. Now, however, comes Undisputed -- the first heavy weight to come into the lacking field in more than a decade. And it'll be doing a weigh in via Steam Early Access later this month.
Undisputed packs a punch with stunning visuals, a revolutionary footwork system and deep strategy. With over 60 different punches, voiceovers from legendary referees and commentators and support from the world of boxing, Undisputed intends to live up to its name and become the king of boxing games.To see some big names already signed up to be featured is great, but as Aussies we're currently under represented. There's plenty in the archive to pull from too, but for ours it should be our best up and coming fighter, the son of a gun, The Soul Taker, Tim Tszyu. Not only is he rapidly making a name for himself internationally, he's doing everything right for the sport in this country and we'd be remiss not to remind the local team here working as its promoter, to consider putting his name forward to the devs at Steel City Interactive.
Maybe it's the timing being so long since the last big outing, or maybe because I've fallen in love with Hajme no Ippo - The Fighting on Netflix recently, but a boxing game right about now just feels... right. Undisputed hits Steam Early Access on January 31. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
