Summary: Fun boxing, but way too much of story that drags on. I'd say it's better than wii boxing, because it looks slightly more realistic, but, it's still definitely the cartooned version - overall, it's fun
Summary: A lot of people have complained about this game, mainly over the controls. While the controls are not perfect,they work just as well if not better than the WII Boxing depending on the setting you choose. (Though others would disagree.) The graphics are okay, while the voice actors are just plain annoying.I wish they had left the original Japanese dialogue with subtitles. If you don't like boxing or some sort of active workout, skip this game.
Summary: Yet another Wii game that fails to beat the Wii sports controls (see also Super Swing Golf, etc..) The game comes with a variety of different control schemes but why bother? Most don't work and I didn't buy a wii to use a joystick. Only "Swing mode 2" kinda works asuming you don't need to block or dodge quickly. Of course you can't beat the hard level without being able to dodge and block well... So your kinda screwed unless you go back to your gamecube controller.
Far better than Wii Boxing, but still far from the ideal boxing game

Summary: After almost a month of delay I finally received Victorious Boxers: Revolution. The positives are that, in contrast to Wii Sports Boxing, when you throw a punch your character actually throws a punch. The downsides though are fairly numerous. 1) The punching detection isn't consistent - a jab or a straight punch are frequently detected as hooks and uppercuts.
MUCH better than the Wii Sports boxing, but still not that great.

Summary: This boxing game is much faster and much more responsive than the boxing game on Wii sports. But it's still not that great. It can easily keep up with rapid punches, but it has a difficult time recognizing which kind of punch you're trying to throw. It only picks up on upper-cuts and hooks about half the time. The cut scenes are LAME and super-long. But who the heck would buy this game for the cut-scenes anyway?
