Summary: Pros: Offers a variety of different collector pieces for display and even some boxers to boot. Cons: Cheap quality King Hippo Crown with sloppy, unsightly welds. My crown actually fell apart from a short drop. Crown also came tarnished. Did not have the guts to try the included Chocolate Bar. Inflatable King Hippo feels and looks like a cheap carnival prize.
Summary: Though it panders way too much to the audience that only knows Punch-Out!! on the NES. The boxers are delightful and well animated. I just wish there was more new blood. I ended up using the motion controls over the d-pad because the dpad was just too small. I would always accidentally dodge when trying to punch an opponent in the head. I tried my new Tatsunoko VS Capcom arcade stick, but sadly it was unsupported. A travesty for a game that has its roots in the arcades.
Summary: OK, so I wanted a combination of the classic game and a little workout. This game makes your arm hurt because you constantly have to swing to punch. I played it once and my 4 year old daughter and 6 year old nephew have played it several times. But it's not our favorite game.
Summary: I honestly never thought I'd ever see the day when Glass Joe would actually become a challenging opponent, but here it is. If I didn't see it I wouldn't have believed it...! Mike Tyson's Punch out--piece of cake. Arcade Punch Out--No Problem! First Glass Joe in this version of the game--a little funny, but still fairly easy to take out without much sweat.
I wanted to love this game. I really wanted to love this game

Summary: Growing up, I played Punch Out and Super Punch Out. Those two games hold a special place in my memories. They were a lot of fun and gave me and my friends hours of enjoyment. The games used the power of the system and were easy to learn but difficult to master. This Punch Out was made in the mold of Punch Out for the NES. Some of the same characters and similar controls as the NES.
Summary: I liked this game, but I am a little disappointed. I bought it hoping for an upgrade from the Wii sports boxing game. It delivered, sort of...if you are like me you might be looking at this game thinking you can get some realistic boxing action in. If that is so, don't buy it. In fact lower your standards. In the 2 monthes or so of owning a Wii I have discovered that some things are just beyond it's capabilities.
