Really Bad

"Throw In The Towel! Ya Bum!"

Well here we go again. Another substandard third party game to review. Luckily for all you gameflyers out there I've got enough patience to play this mediocre boxing game so you don't have to. Where to begin well ok how about the presentation. For a big time boxing program like Showtime the whole look of this game is lacking that same degree of quality. The textures are ok ( for a wii game i guess) but the player models are just dull and lifeless. Now for the controls which are really what breaks this game. You'll punch yourself in the face for buying this game before you land any clean blows on your virtual opponents. The controls are unresponsive to say the least. So while the prospect of a great boxing title for the wii still remains (Please Nintendo make a new Punch Out!) this is not it. Showtime Championship Boxing throws a low blow and lands it right in the family jewels of unsuspecting boxing fans looking for a new way to throw down on there wii. Did you know wii sports has boxing? FYI it does and fortunately for all of us it comes with the wii. Not to mention it's still better than every stand alone third party boxing release for the wii thus far. In other words go play Wii Sports Boxing and wait for a real heavywieght contender to arrive. Anything vs. Showtime Championship Boxing. Anything wins. TKO!

I rented this game dispite all the warnings, In part I think, because I want to be able to play a good boxing game on the wii so bad.

This game is just horrible. Do yourself a favor, and never buy or rent a game that has anything to do with Showtime.

Punch Out for the 1980's Nintendo is way better than this game. Controllers are very very slow, There is only like two kinds of punches you can do, Boring game,
