Punch-Out

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Now that Nintendo Wii games are coming down in price we are able to purchase some that were missed. We also know millions of our readers want to know if they should spend their money on games like Punch-Out. They patiently wait for us to review them. Punch-Out is a boxing game that has some deep roots in the history of video games. With the Wii Nintendo added some controls that will get family members moving. My biggest complaint about Punch-Out is the patterns.

Test Punch Out

Generation NT
10 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Punch Out est un jeu enjôleur. D'une part, parce qu'il séduit par son ambiance un peu loufoque et parce qu'il propose un gameplay à la fois simpliste et subtil. Rapidement, on se prend au jeu à étudier chacun des combattants, à trouver un point faible sur lequel nous pourrons rebondir. Derrière cette ambiance bon enfant, se cache pourtant un jeu pas toujours évident.
  • Pros: L'ambiance, La personnalité des boxers, Le gameplay à la fois simple et subtil, Le contenu
  • Cons: L'absence d'un mode en ligne pour un challenge plus grand

Expert Review

  • Summary: I played the original Punch-Out until I could pull off the moves in my sleep. Wii Punch-Out is similar to the NES title, but if you think nothing can top that classic, then you're underestimating this game. Punch-Out relies on decades-old gameplay -- even in its career format -- and yet remains engaging, demonstrating that you are not served by memories of ''the good ol' days'' alone.

Punch-Out!! Review

NintendoStar
1 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Never playing the original Punch-Out released over 20 years ago, I had a very vague idea of what to expect when playing its new sequel for Wii. All I did know is that you are a boxer called Little Mac trying to rise to the top with his coach Doc Louis helping him out. As you get master your moves you move through the ranks, dodging and counter-attacking opponents’ timed attacks so you could KO them, and eventually becoming the World Champion.
  • Pros: Hours of gameplay to be had, Great challenge, 3D graphics enhance the experience
  • Cons: Only one new character, Game can be quite punishing at some points, No online interaction

Punch-Out!! (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
13 July 2009
  • Excerpt: One of the biggest arguments against this generation for those who seek challenge from the industry has been in the general reduction of difficult games. Nintendo may be changing that with the nostalgic Punch-Out!!’s triumphant return. Punch-Out!!’s story is exactly what you’d expect: Little Mac is trying to climb through the ranks of the boxing world to become the world champion and then defend his title.

Punch-Out!!

Game Over Online
7 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Nintendo has brought its boxing game out of retirement after 15 years, with Punch Out!! for Wii being the most recent addition to the series since Super Punch Out!! on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. As in previous versions of the series, the game follows the career of Little Mac, an up-and-coming contender who starts at the bottom of the Minor Circuit and fights his way up through the ranks to become a contender for the World Circuit championship.

Punch-Out!!

Video Game Generation
19 June 2009
  • Summary: OK, let’s hold our collective breath for a second, and pretend we always intended to play the Wii as if it were an NES. Here goes: “Yes! Nintendo has proven that they still know how to produce a great game! Punch-Out!! is a lot of fun just like its predecessor! All your favorite boxers are back, and the laughs just keep on coming!” Now if only we could forget the incredibly glaring problem in front of our collective faces.
  • Pros: Addictive gameplay, if you remember to keep it retro and not expect a Wii-compatible, motion-sensing update., Colorful graphics, amusing cutscenes., Doc’s comments between rounds are always good for a laugh.
  • Cons: Anything relating to the game’s supposed Wii compatibility or how poorly it approximates any semblance of motion tracking., Having to replay the entire game a second time with few real changes

  • Excerpt: Punch-Out is a sequel of the popular series that was originally released in the arcades and then released on the NES and Super NES systems. I remember playing Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out as a kid and I always enjoy trying out the sequels of games to see if they include any new and improved features.
