Kombo writes: "Boxing games are more fun when they revel in wackiness. Facebreaker has its fair share of wacky. Not only are the characters off the wall and over the top, so are the rings like the pirate ring that features boxing crabs. It contributes to a fun atmosphere and it offers plenty of comic book visuals with a heaping helping of surrealism. The character design is fun. Each fighter has a vastly different personality than the next".
