Victorious Boxers Revolution

Excerpt: When I first played the boxing in Wii Sports I knew how realistic a boxing game could be on this system. Wii Sports fell short in the boxing by not keeping up with my bullet punches. Victorious Boxers Revolution keeps up. On top of that XSeed Games made sure there is a deep, and emotional storyline in this game. Victorious Boxers Revolution is based on an anime cartoon series from Japan that I have just become aware of.
Summary: Victorious Boxers: Revolution offers the best boxing simulation outside of stepping into a real ring. Not only will players get a chance to swing and knockout their opponents, but they will also get a great workout, as the game takes full advantage of the unique capabilities of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to give players an authentic, real-life boxing experience.
Excerpt: As much as I like rooting for the little guy, real underdog stories rarely have happy endings. Victorious Boxers landed on the PS2 in 2001 and, by all rights, should have been a hit. It had an immersive control system that incorporated full-body movement, momentum, and strategic fighting. It simply couldn’t stand up to the graphical prowess and promotional backing of EA’s games, so the underdog and its sequel fell into the gutters of obscurity.
Excerpt: By Kevin "Berserker" Hall Victorious Boxers: Revolution is a boxing game based on the Fighting Spirit/Hajime No Ippo anime series. The story follows a young boxer by the name of Ippo Makunouchi. Ippo lacks confidence and is bullied in school until one day he is given the opportunity to train at a local boxing gym by one of its members.
Excerpt: Get up. Come on, this isn’t the time to be lazy. You think mastering the Boxing game on Wii Sports gives you the right to start slacking off? You think you’re ready for this fight, don’t you? See that guy across the ring? That’s no Mii character. That’s Ichiro Miyata, and he will crush your face in if you don’t defend yourself. There are even stronger opponents waiting for their chance as well. You nervous? You should be.
Summary: Boxing fan or not, this is a fun game to play bottom line. The anime inspired look may turn off some, but if you’re a fight fan, you should give this game a shot. Casual players however will probably give it a whirl and move onto something less complex.
Excerpt: Ippo Makunouchi is the son most expectant mothers dream of raising. He works hard, he's dedicated to what he does, and most of all he has the fighting spirit. As awesome as he is, though, he only weighs around 130 pounds. He's a lightweight, for sure. That makes him the target of bullies, but one day after some thugs corner him in the park and knock him around like usual, a jogger named Takamura comes to the rescue.
