Punch-Out!! (Wii)

 

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

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...

Nintendo has brought its boxing game out of retirement after 15 years, with Punch Out!! for Wii being the most recent addition to the series since Super Punch Out!! on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. As in previous versions of the series, the...

Overall, the gameplay itself is fun, and there are enough options (Wii Remote, Wii Remote/Nunchuk, Balance Board) to suit the preferences of any gamer. While graphically the game may not match up against games on powerhouse systems Xbox 360 and...

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...

Punch-Out!! (Wii) Review

 

Damn it feels good to punch these guys in the mouth again! After 15 years of sleep, the franchise resurfaces and in style.

Punch-Out!!

 

The Punch-Out!! series has always seemed, at least to me, like Nintendo's unloved son. Since its arrival, way back in 1987, there have only been three Punch-Out!! titles to date

Punch-Out!! is a great game when the guys are over and you have an hour or so to kill. By yourself it's a great, albeit quick, little distraction. I don't think I've ever had this much fun on my Wii.

Punch-Out!! Wii Review

 

As a fan of the NES canvas-kissing classic Mike Tyson's PunchOut!, I was as nervous as I was excited over the prospect of revisiting Little Mac's rise to “ring king” stardom in a brand spanking new version, sans Iron Mike. On the one hand, I couldn't...

PunchOut!! is great fun for fans of the NES classic as well as for fresh contenders. The fact the WiiRemote-mapped controls work so well is a nice bonus. It isn't terribly innovative, and anyone looking for a full-on sequel rather than a reboot, may...

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

This reboot of Nintendo's cheeky boxing series is a nostalgia-laced knockout.

The series' formula remains sound after 25 years

Curious lack of Classic Controller support; multiplayer mode is little more than a novelty
