I was really looking fwd to a "GOOD" Wii boxing game that utilizes Wii's motion controls... and I'm still looking! This game would be better played on the Wii Classic controller over the Wii-motes! It was HORRIBLE! You'll get so frustrated that you will eject it and put it straight into the GFly mailer and be done with it. Seriously.
Don't waste a rental slot in your Q on this title.
I rented this game and sent it back the next day. The gameplay is terrible. Wii sports boxing is more realistic then this. I am ashamed to say that this was my first Gamefly game. The punches don't even swing with your hand. You will have to throw like 5 punches before you land one.
I was also angry that there is no Afro Thunder like the original N64 version (that guy on the cover is not him).
Take my advice don't waste your time and get this game or you will regret it.

If you're like me than you love reading IGN's and Gamepspots reviews before choosing a title. Both of these sites hate this game but I'm hear to tell you to find out for yourself on this one. I thought from the reviews that this game would be back in the mail the same day I got it but I've found it to be pretty enjoyable. I will say that the controls are not always responsive but I've found this to be true for ALL Wii games. Plus, if you're a competitor and not a chump a game like this forces you to hone your skills and when you finally get it, it is VERY satisfying. I've been up late every night playing this game and I thoroughly enjoy it and I love pummeling my kids created characters. The championship mode is lengthy and difficult but who doesn't like a challenge every now and then. Rent this one and judge it for yourself.
