  • Pros: At the least the Classic controls work, Story is surprisingly involved, Flailing with a friend can be fun
  • Cons: Motion sensing completely broken, Camera angles obscure opponent, In-match actions don't match story

  • Excerpt: Back when the Xbox 360 was released, one of the first games that truly looked “next-gen” was Electronic Arts’ Fight Night: Round 3. Since then there hasn’t really been a whole lot of games based on the sweet science. That’s kind of understandable, considering how high Fight Night set the bar. But if any system was built to host a boxing game, it’s the Wii.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Almost immediately after the Wii's unique control scheme was first shown, people began imagining what a boxing game would be like on the system. Thanks to Wii Sports Boxing, they didn't have to wait long to find out. But the game was shallow and felt more like a tech demo than a fully fleshed-out boxing experience. Enter Victorious Boxers: Revolution, a sequel to 2001's Victorious Boxers on the PlayStation 2.
  • Pros: Closely matches the style of the anime on which it's based, Story mode is a unique way of progressing through a career
  • Cons: None of the motion-based control schemes are very good, Terrible voice acting, Actions in the ring don't seem to have any effect on the story

  • Conclusion: The sound runs the gamut from just fine to excruciating. The character voices are generally good, and Ippo’s suits his character especially well. Some of the other voices are simply passable and admittedly, there are some just poor lines in there. During the heat of battle though, it matters little. Some of the best lines actually come from Takamura, who tends to serve as comic relief (in his own fight).
