Before I think about getting this game, I'd love to know how good, or bad, the controls are.

I think it controls fine, but it is a sim so the controls might seem a bit sluggish at first

Its a great game, underrated even amongst 3DO gamers it seems.

DAMN! Yes I do. This game is awesome. It's what lead to EA doing Knockout Kings. Foes of Ali is easily one of the best boxing games ever made. The graphics are in the sweet spot, the controls are spot on, and the presentation is outstanding. This game should get way more love than it does as it's easily one of the best games for the 3DO. I tell p-eople that EA hit their sweet spot on the 3DO, but nobody wants to listen.

EA definitely put out quality games on the 3DO, this was back when EA took chances and made new IP's instead of pumpin out sequel after sequel.

The only bad taste EA left with me is never releasing a hockey game on the 3DO.

I'm not great at fighting games but this one I think is very good. It's taking me some time to get used to but I really do think that The Freaker's on 2 something but I am probably no expert

I try to be as open minded and honest as possible when talking about games, and I am dead serious about Foes of Ali. I really do believe it is a gem of a game and extremelt under rated for it's time. There were no other Boxing games on any platform at this time that came close to what this game did. I do believe that the "Golden Age" of Electronic Arts was the 32-Bit era. Not saying they never released games before this time period that were good, but most of the stuff that was amazing from the period of time I am talking about was just classic. It all really started with the 3DO. Foes of Ali set up Knockout kings, even though I think that Foes was a purer and much better built game. While it may not be as graphically pleasing as the latter games, the construction was just amazing. The 3DO games released by EA are some of the best the company has ever released and I stand by that. As a matter of fact, I think I'll go boot up Foes in a few minutes even. Been a bit.
