Arcade boxing action comes to the PlayStation in Contender. Choose from 20 playable characters (both male and female), and enter the ring in the Exhibition mode to get a quick fix of the sweet science. Those looking for more of a challenge, try to rise through the local, national, and world ranks on the way to the world championship. Becoming world champion is going to take training, a little luck, and pummeling over 40 other contenders. If it looks like your the one taking the beating, the tide can turn at any minute by connecting with the ultra powerful super punch. Once you become champion, don't rest on your laurels; go out there and defend the belt. If your friends challenge your supremacy, then knock them out with the Two-Player mode. Do you have what it takes to become the world champ? Play Contender and find out.
