Punch-Out!!

 

Punch Out is a throwback. Essentially a NES game done over with a fresh coat of paint, it's a throwback to the times of simple yet addictive titles, games with singular compelling concepts and none of the extra dangly bits and flashing lights to...

Punch Out works due to the tight mix of concise, simple gameplay that has not grown stale despite being over two decades old, a superb slapstick sense of humour, a style that matches it perfectly and because it caters to everybody without being...

Punch-Out!! Review for Wii

 

Punch-Out!! for Wii Review - If you've been waiting most of your life for a visually upgraded Punch-Out!! that plays just as you remember it from the NES and SNES, your dreams have been answered. This is exactly that.

Classic gameplay on a new console

Not enough new characters

Punch-Out!! (Wii) review

 

Nintendo returns to the ring in formidable form...

Punch-Out!! is a long overdue re-imagining of one of Nintendo’s most overlooked brands and is, for us, the epitome of what a Wii game should be. Next Level acknowledges and works around the limitations of motion control, bringing the Punch-Out!! series...

Punch-Out!!

 

Punch-Out for the Wii isn't much different from the NES version, but it hardly matters when it's this much fun.

Classic gameplay is still intense and satisfying ; Opponents have new strategies the second time you face them ; Ridiculous two-player mode ; Goofy visuals exude charm

Balance board support is lousy

Punch-Out!! [Wii] Review

 

Little Mac is back!

Nice sturdy controls; To fully complete is challenging; Fans of the original should be pleased; Wii Balance Board support enhances experience

No online modes; Quite a simplistic game; Career mode can get repetitive

Punch-Out!!

 

Veteran gamers tend to be of one accord in saying that there really is no boxing game comparable to Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, originally released for the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1987. That storied console game was, like all the truly...

Addictive gameplay, if you remember to keep it retro and not expect a Wii-compatible, motion-sensing update ; Colorful graphics, amusing cutscenes ; Doc’s comments between rounds are always good for a laugh

Anything relating to the game’s supposed Wii compatibility or how poorly it approximates any semblance of motion tracking ; Having to replay the entire game a second time with few real changes

OK, let’s hold our collective breath for a second, and pretend we always intended to play the Wii as if it were an NES. Here goes: “Yes! Nintendo has proven that they still know how to produce a great game! Punch-Out!! is a lot of fun just like its...

Klonoa

 

When the original Klonoa: Door to Phantomile came out over 10 years ago, the 2.5D mechanic was innovative, the graphics were slick, and anthropomorphic animals with \'tude were so in. But times have changed, and despite a visual overhaul and some...

Punch-Out!! Review

 

A great reimagining of a classic game that is marred only by it's lack of varied gameplay due to old-school gaming foundations. Replayability might be lax, but the fun isn't making this a game still worth checking out...

Old-school gameplay well and truly intact; Excellent presentation; Quirky characters; Multiplayer is an awesome addition

Lack of any real replayability; Over far too quickly; No online multiplayer; Not enough gameplay options: Mini-games could have been a great addition

Punch-Out!! review for the WII

 

You're gonna eat Wiimotes and crap nunchuks!

Spectacular remake; Controls are tighter than the original; Fantastic updated visuals; Much longer career mode; Versus mode

that could use some work; Wii-mote controls are just for show

From the music to the controls and Doc's worthless advice between rounds, everything in Punch Out!! harkens back to a time before bump-mapping and load screens, a time when games didn't have to rely on downloadable content or pre-order bonuses to be...
