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!
The first day this came in the mail, I was so excited i shoved into the wii as fast as I can. The menu comes up. I press start. Soon these 2 big burly guys come onto the screen. I swing the remote forward, but it doesn't do anything. I press all the buttons, and it still doesn't do anything. Then my opponent swings his fist. it hits my face and I drop. K.O!!! it says. So I beg you DO NOT RENT THIS GAME. (and DO NOT give it a high rating. Don't even give it a 3.)
