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.
Summary: Come on people. You guys all complain about the warning in the boxers? If you look at most warnings on anything it says "contains traces of a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer." come on, give me a break. Wash them before wearing then it will be fine. If you are that worried about it then I wouldnt go outside either, you will get cancer from the sun as well.
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.
Summary: I liked this game a little bit, but not a lot. The game is obviously similar to the original NES version, with a few added characters. What I didn't expect was the game play to be so similar. The Wii controls really don't do much different from the regular controls. While the new opponents and the new moves by the old opponents were somewhat fun, it still had the same very repetitive timing of the NES game and many other NES games.
