I was going to post this in the "what video game are you playin" thread, but wanted to have a broader discussion. It may not be obvious but I am a lover of boxing and all things pugilistic. My family recently bought me "Creed: Rise to Glory" and all I can say is wow. This is a game for me. First, the realism is intense. Not only can you fight various figures throughout the whole Rocky movie saga, you can train in Mick's gym. We are talking VR heavy bag, speed bag, even treadmill. Loads of drills. And of course ring fights. Having played and watched others, this game stands out as one that will make you sweat hard. The amount of movement and timing required is almost dead on. My wife almost hyperventilated fighting Clubber Lang. I took a priceless video of that. I fought Apollo Creed and was intimidated, and I got so into it I almost put my right through our HDTV. So, I had to learn to anchor my rear leg to the couch. Otherwise I'd have been flying all over the room. Anybody who loves sparring or boxing should consider picking up this VR game. I don't think I've ever experienced something so similar to the real thing, minus getting hit. But everything else...the heart pump, adrenaline dump, breath control, movement, tactics...it's all there in this crazy adaptation. Best part? Rocky himself is cornering me. Hearing Rock in my ear with a killer like Lang up in my grill...fantastic!!
