BEEFED-UP 8-bit classic!

This is basically "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!" (without Mike Tyson, unfortunately) with super-souped up graphics and photo/video montages. That makes for a very, VERY awesome game! Not only is the gameplay totally adaptable for anyone (choose from classic Nintendo style controller use OR Nunchuk/Wii Remote combo), the game looks unbelievably cool with its smooth animation, slick graphics, and some hilarious photo and video montages set for Little Mac and the opponents. This game is also very challenging, which makes it even more addicting and better to play( but not so much where you get so frustrated to never play again.) The feel of the game is very much like the 8-bit version, so anyone familiar will catch on to this right away.

The above clue as to who's in the game, that's all you get from me, I'll leave you to rent it and see for yourself to see who else made it to the final cut! Although I will say one more thing: if you really, really, I mean REALLY loved the 8-bit version of Punch-Out, you are going to salivate over this game.

A MUST for rabid Punch-Out fans and fans of good action/adventure games.

Punch Out returns, and it's on the Wii now, so we get a more polished version this time around. There's not a whole lot of new features though, which could be good or bad....Good, if you love the "old school". Bad, if you expected more from Punch Out on a next-gen system.
I really enjoyed it, though I went through it very quickly. I did have practice - (way back when I was 11 yrs old.)
It would have been nice to have more characters and more moves to learn, but hey, there's nothing wrong with playing a old favorite with new looks.

Punch Out!! is one amazingly fun game just like the original. It's everything the original was and even more!! If you grew up on Mike Tyson's Punch Out like my generation did. This is an extra big treat!! I'm 34 now, and got my first Nintendo when I was in the sixth grade and of course got Mike Tyson's Punch Out. EVERYBODY had that game! I still remember the first time I saw a friend come over and beat Tyson. It was amazing. Every punch Tyson threw would knock you down if it landed. Heck, I can even remember the code that took you straight to Tyson, to this day...now that is a classic game right there!! I can barely remember my name these days....well this game is basically the same game overall, but even more fun now with a few twists. The head to head with a friend is super fun as well, we stumbled upon this and had a blast today smashing each others faces. Check it out, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
