    Meh Chavez II

    Boxing is a brutal sport, and few men in the past forty years have been more successful at it than Julio CÚsar Chavez. the six-time world champion is a national hero in his native Mexico, and his fame was so widespread that he even got his own video game... twice! How's that for badass? Given that Chavez was such a master of the sweet science in the ring, it stands to reason that a game based on him would be great, right? Well, not really, and his second outing, the imaginatively named Chavez II, is a lesson in mediocrity. A re-skinned version of Boxing Legends of the Ring, it does little more than add Chavez to the game. Read our full review for all the knockout details.

    Nice review man, I enjoyed your more unique writing style not too oftenly seen on the site. The opening was a bit abrupt but overall I really liked it.

    I have a question, is this game completely in spanish like the SNES version?

    Reading the game's title, I was kinda hoping it would be short for Virtua Hugo Chavez II or something. But alas, it is only a boxing game.

    Thanks, glad you enjoyed it and yes, the game is entirely in Spanish.

    If you wanted to be an insane dictator, why not move to Central or South America and leading a rebellion or coup? They have around fifty of them a year.

    That's pretty cool that you reviewed this game, we have very few foreign language games on this site so it's a nice addition. If you don't mind me asking, do you speak fluent spanish? If you do then you should check out some of those Tec Toy exclusives, they would be great to review.

    LOL ....?!




    - Seriously, I do think that a lot of the things Chavez, Morales & co. might achieve (or already achieved) wouldn't be too bad for most of the people in SA, but I'd really wish these guys would stop the hate speech against the US and Israel (and stop buddying up to Iran for crying out loud).

    Progressive politics (which would include Socialism as well as American Democracy) should be for something, not against something.
    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    Just so you know, those games are in Portuguese and NOT Spanish.

    Interesting fact: American Softworks made a profit on this game before shipping a single copy because of the Pepsi and Pizza Hut advertisements. Of course, Chavez II went on to become of of the biggest selling games in Mexico.

    Is the rarity considered higher for the Genesis version than the SNES version?

    I'm only trying this game now but it seems very fun, and with very impressive graphics. Boxers are surprisingly large, probably biggest characters on the console? Almost resembles a next gen console game, doesn't it? I'm surprised people have seemed so negative about this game.

    I wonder if the graphics are doing any particular special tricks to pull off such large characters?
