Foreman For Real - SNES

Poor Mr Hairs - he's usually after Four Men For Something Awful. Do you see?

Licensed to use the harrowing countenance of Mr G Foreman: ageing boxer, For Real is more or less what you'd expect.

It uses a queer, not-quite-side-on viewpoint and big, digitised boxers. You can follow your choosen fighter's career, take part in a "tourney" or just have a fight for fun.

We're always wary of boxing games, few have lived up to Sega's classic World's Greatest Heavyweights.

Foreman For Real is typically average. There's little in the way of training options and that, and the controls are shockingly sluggish.

Press button - wait five seconds - boxer throws punch.

It looks really nice, but is just too frustrating to persevere with.
