This game is the third in the Punch-Out series and so far the best. With the Wii controller and nun chuck it really makes you feel that your really in the match. Though even though you can use the Wii Balance board it does not really impress. Its the perfect game for Wii. In career you get to fight your way to be the champion of the world and after that protect your title. In Exhibition you get to fight opponents that you've fought before to earn achievements plus you can fight opponents that your stuck on as a practice. In Head-to-Head you get to fight your friends. In gallery you get to check out movies that you've unlocked and music. I'm pretty sure that thats everything.

When I was a young kid, I rented Super Punch Out!! for my SNES, and it was a lot of fun. A Year ago, I bought Punch Out!! for NES on the Wii virtual console, and it was still fun with simple controls, awesome music, and a couple of tough bosses. So what does the Wii version stack up to...... still awesome!!!!!!! The controls for the gameplay haven't changed much for the classic controls, with the exception that you have to hit minus to activate the star punches. The motion controls work perfectly gameplay although sometimes uppercuts are registered as jabs, and that can sometimes ruin the whole match. And not only that, at one point, the bosses got so hard for me to beat that I said screw it, the NES contol style is what i think the only possible way to beat these guys. BTW, it doesnt matter if ur 7 years old or 27 years old, you will yell, swear, and punch the wall tryin to beat this game. Especially the last boss, The Sandman. Overall, this sequel is amazing on the Wii and stands to the test of time the sometimes a game could be fun with only a d-pad and 2 buttons. The only problems are that there are that there is no online(WTH, this is the year 2009 Nintendo), you cant use other boxers in multiplayer(seriously, WTH NINTENDO!!!!!), and that the Wii Fit board option is freaking useless, actually Wii Fit was useless to begin with...... but even with these flaws, it gets a 9/10.

So........

Buy It

Rent It

or

Screw It

Final Verdict:
Buy It!!!!!

This game is as great just like the original was in its time. I
recommend this game for anyone who was a fan of the original.
This game would have been better if they would have added some
more fighters and still had Mike Tyson in the mix. Nintendo did
a awesome job with this game and I hope they put out more
Punch Out games with a list of all new characters to fight.
