Summary: I bought this for my husband, because he LOVES Hajime no Ippo. He unwrapped it and set it aside but already had it in the wii and started by the time I got back from the bathroom. He didn't even have it twenty-four hours and he threw his shoulder out from playing so much..
Summary: I just got this game and sparred two 6 round matches. The game just feels right. Both matches went the distance and I really did feel like I was in to it. By the sixth round I'm trying to pepper him and he's ducking and weaving. You have to time his moves and throw that punch at the right time.
Summary: If you are looking for a boxing game that you actually get to play then this is not it! It's 90% storyline and maybe 10% actual boxing (if you play single player mode). You follow the main character through his "karate-kid" type journey to become a boxer.
Summary: The game is great for the series fans. The fact to fight with Ippo, Miyata, Takamura and the rest of the character series is great for the ones that are fans of Hajime No Ippo/Fighting Spirit. I recommend it!!!
