Star Rank Boxing lets you issue all commands to your pugilist through combinations of joystick movements and pressing the fire buttons. This makes for an exciting, easy-to-use system, similar to Gamestar's fine On-Court Tennis and On-Field Football. If the company hadn't already sewn up the title as leading publisher of sports programs, Gamestar now holds the belt.

Barry McGuigans World Championship Boxing is quite simply an excellent game. Great fun. Great value for money.

Barry McGuigan World Championship Boxing scores as the best boxing game on the market. For realism, it knocks the others for six. It is more complex than Frank Bruno's Boxing and Rocco. Bruno has to win only eight bouts, while Gremlin's Rocco has just three opponents.

There's an excellent blend of strategy, tactics and arcade action to provide a great boxing simulation that probably gets as close to the real thing as possible. The long term challenge of moving up the rankings is a tough one that keeps you at it and with so much variety possible you shouldn't tire easily. I hate to say it but - a real knockout!

My only minor criticism is the lack of manoeuvrability - the boxers scuttle crabwise about the ring. And where's the skipping rope in the training camp? No wonder these boys aren't so light on their feet! All in all a top-ten contender in the software boxing championships.
