This is one game where you find yourself interacting with every swing, punch and KO. One of the most interactive games on the market. It gives you feeling of wanting to win with the perfect combination of strategy and skill.

Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 ist ein prächtiges Boxspektakel mit einer gehörigen Portion Humor. Die Entwickler bieten eine sehr gute Fortsetzung, die spieltechnische und grafische Details verbessert. Alle Liebhaber von Hardcore-Box-Simulationen -wenn es denn welche gibt- seien jedoch gewarnt: R2RB bedeutet zwerchfellerschütternde Arcade-Action, die besonders im Multiplayer-Modus für Spielspaß pur sorgt. Für Box- und Sportbegeisterte ein wahrer Pflichtkauf; Besitzer des ersten Teils dürften nicht viel Neues vorfinden - deshalb gibt es auch keinen Award.
Spel för Alla (Dec, 2000)
Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 lever långt på att man kan spela två mot varandra. Och med alla humorinslagen räcker det faktiskt riktigt långt.
Problemet med Ready 2 Rumble: Round 2 är dock inte spelet i sig, utan att det faktiskt inte skiljer sig så mycket från originalet som man förväntar sig av en sann uppföljare. Men eftersom del ett var ett av de bättre boxningsspelen någonsin kan man kanske ha överseende med detta. Och har man dessutom inte varit i kontakt med Midways första holmgångsspel är del två ett säkert köp i vintermörkret.
Gamekult (Dec 13, 2000)
Avec cette appropriation d'un des titres les plus réussis sur Dreamcast, la PlayStation 2 réussit un coup médiatique intéressant. Bénéficiant de tous les ingrédients qui ont fait le succès du premier opus, Ready to Rumble Boxing Round 2 fait une entrée plus que remarquée dans la ludothèque de la PS2. Un gameplay hallucinant mêlé à un univers cartoon des plus délirants, le tout dans une ambiance désopilante, ce jeu est décidément une valeur sûre pour s'amuser seul ou entre potes. Crises de rire garanties.
This is a great sequel that leaves little room for error with the minute changes to the gameplay. Die-hard boxing fans may be disappointed by the complete lack of realism, but this was never the intent of the developers. This is an easy to pick up arcade boxing game, still one of the best ever conceived. Still a shame this isn't Punch-Out.

Tout dépend de ce que l'on attend dans Ready 2 Rumble 2 qui reste un jeu de baston excellent dans son concept et sa réalisation. Pourtant, le jeu décevra sûrement certains par sa répétitivité et ses ressemblances avec le premier opus.
GameSpot (Nov 08, 2000)
Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 is a solid arcade-style boxing game, and like most arcade games, it wears thin fairly quickly. The only challenge that the game really presents is unlocking additional characters, which simply consists of the time-consuming task of beating the game over and over. But since the game's AI is relatively simple, you'll quickly learn all of the little tricks that'll lead you to a win with little or no thought put into it at all, which ultimately makes R2RB: R2 a game that's better suited for rental than purchase.

Eine Handvoll Punches und Jabs, dazu jeweils zwei, drei Special Moves und Combos pro Haudegen – das kann's auf Dauer nicht sein. Auch die KI wurde keinesfalls verbessert: Mit derselben Taktik wie im ersten Teil habe ich mit Afro Thunder gleich beim ersten Anlauf alle zwölf Gegner hintereinander ins Reich der Träume geschickt, ohne einmal die Block-Taste anzufassen. Mit einem menschlichen Gegner habt ihr in R2R 2 am meisten Spaß: Urkomische Bewegungen, verbeulte Visagen, fiese Kommentare und spektakuläre Knockouts sorge da für gute Laune. Ich meine: Wer die Dreamcast-Version von Teil eins hat, braucht dieses Sequel nicht unbedingt, alle anderen Comic-Box-Fans müssen's sich unbedingt anschauen!
Gamezone (Germany) (Apr 26, 2001)
Dieser Titel ist purer Fun, mit super Schlagtechniken und sehenswerten Inszenierungen. Die Steuerung wurde im Vergleich zum Vorgänger sogar etwas verbessert.
Sharing the same fate as its predecessor, Round 2 focuses heavily on graphical fluff but not enough on gameplay. As intended, the visual content will stupefy the eye, and the amusing character personalities will tickle the funny bone, but the play will do little more than bore and aggravate consumers. I truly believe Midway made a valiant attempt to improve the AI, and to some degree the CPU opponents are smarter, yet even so, the same strategy from the first release can be tapped to topple most of the competition. Just punch and retreat. They never catch on. As a multiplayer game, Round 2 shines. Using superhero-esque moves to snap your friends jaw proves to be enjoyable every time. For the second time, the single-player experience is dreadful. Training grows old within minutes, and only the last boss is challenging.
In the end, Ready 2 Rumble: Round 2 fails to grab the torch from the game it tries so hard to emulate, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. That game used the same combination of crazy characters and amazing (for its day) graphics. However, that classic utilized a simple, yet timeless gameplay model that had endured to this day. If you want boxing perfection, skip ahead to Classic GI and check out our Punch Out strategy guide.

Hoewel er weinig concurrentie is op de PS2 is Ready 2 Rumble 2 hoogstens leuk om een keer te huren want veel meer dan een dag of twee plezier zul je er niet aan beleven.
Game Revolution (Nov, 2000)
Ready 2 Rumble Round 2 is an arcade game, plain and simple. Unfortunately, that just doesn't cut it with today's console systems. While it makes a stab at depth with the Championship mode, that turns out to be a huge disappointment. Is a good boxing game that hard to make? Finally, I just have to say that despite my prancing and finger snapping, I could kick Michael Jackson's ass, despite the fact that one of his gloves is golden.
IGN (Oct 23, 2000)
Ready to Rumble: Round 2 is a nice sequel to the first game, and it's fun to play for around three to four hours. Once you have played through it with a bunch of characters, though, you really don't need to play it again. This one is strictly for newbies and casual gamers. And hey, I did have fun playing as Michael Jackson and Shaquille O'Neal, but neither were as fun as Freak E. Deke. Too bad this game is as shallow as a kiddy pool.
PlayFrance (Apr 11, 2003)
Au final, techniquement parlant on peut dire que Ready 2 Rumble 2 est correct, mais la grande originalité du jeu vient du fait qu'il se veut être la parfaite caricature de la boxe. Des parties délirantes vous attendent... Cependant au bout d'un moment si vous êtes seul et malgré le mode championnat, vous risquez vite de vous ennuyer. Seules les parties entre amis garantissent d'être toujours un bon moment de rigolade.

Overall, R2R2 is fun to play (even if only for a short time), and makes for a decent party game. However, if you're looking for a more in-depth boxing game, try Mike Tyson Boxing.
