From VPG:

As the newest pug on the block, you’re ready to sock the next lug to enter the ring with you. The wise heads have finally let you challenge the champ and it’s up to you to prove that you can sing that sweet chin music with the best.

This is a knock-down, drag-out slugfest from designer Fréderic Moyersoen that only one fighter can win; the last man standing takes home the dough and the dames.

Maybe once you’ve beaten back the roundheels in the one-off brawls, you can go on to fight in the bigger tournaments…

TGG Score - 8.4

Knockout is a fun little game to get an evening started or wing down with after more epic gaming. New gamers can easily be introduced to the title and the back and forth nature and momentum shifts add to the fun.
