A cartoony boxing game like Punch Out has been long overdue, but this game doesn't have enough of the right stuff. The graphics and characters, which are what made me want to play, are awesome, but the AI and gameplay ruin the whole thing. Even on the easiest level it's very difficult to progress through the game. Here's some quotes: "...a FaceBreaker move will instantly finish your opponent. Unfortunately, filling this meter often proves to be an unrealistic aspiration as it will empty whenever you get hit...FaceBreaker instead boils down to a button-mashing extravaganza...pummeling you with virtually unstoppable combos and cheap dizzying moves, the A.I. doesn't mind destroying any and all hopes you have of winning." It's sad that a game that's so good visually is so lacking in playability.
