The gameplay is good as you are looking through your fighter at your opponent. You move the boxer with the nunchuk and if you have a balance board you can bob and weave. Don't be put off if you don't have a balance board as you can still play the game without it.
Punches are thrown in a similar way to those on wii sports but you also gain power punches when you land good shots or make your opponent miss. I have noticed that some of the punches don't always come out right such as when I try to throw a hook it sometimes comes out as an uppercut, but this could be down to me not yet mastering the moves after only three days of playing it.
There are no 12 round fights which at first seems a little disapointing but is probably for the best if you are standing throwing punches yourself. It means you can get through more fights before tiring yourself out. Also I have not yet gone more than two rounds in any of my fights because every one has ended in a knock out.
The training and story (career) modes are both designed to keep you coming back to the game, as the more you train the better your fighter gets. The story involves your character (The Kid) working his way through the ranks, as well as challenges to win classic fights.
The Wii seems to be waiting for a great boxing game and while this is not perfect, is the best anyone has come up with so far. It has a realism but still keeps an arcade feel so that anyone can play it.
You can play with or without the balance board but I personal found it to be more of a hindrance than a help. Also, if you're like me & you're over 6 foot tall then unless your telly is wall mounted you might find the camera angles when using the balance board a bit off putting.
Sadly my two biggest grips are;
1) In order to move around the ring you use the joystick on the Nunchuck controller. However, this is about as responsive as a fork in jelly & at times it can feel like your wasting valuable energy chasing your opponent round the ring.
2) It's just not that much fun! the developers seem to have missed the point that it's neither violent enough (Fight Night3) to get your heart pumping, or silly enough (Punch Out!!!) to be fun.
I've only tried this game with the nunchuks, so I can't say what balance board game play is like. It is quite fun to play and can be very satisfying when you land a decent punch combination, but these victories are generally reserved for the earlier bouts on story mode. The more advanced fighters require a bit more strike-block-evasion and combo skill than this game can produce. Aligning yourself with the sensor can be tricky; often you may find yourself punching one-handed, meaning combos are out of the question sometimes. Gameplay can rapidly fall apart until it's flail your arms about like a kid on Wii Sports Boxing time!!! Having to use the buttons and joystick on the 'chuks can spoil it badly too.
Overall a fun game to play, and has a fair bit of longevity as a fitness supplement, but don't expect to box like a pro with this control scheme.
This game manages to combine the best graphics I have seen on the Wii with a control system that is worse than the boxing on Wii sports. It is not fun, it is not realistic it is back to controller waving. It often takes small movements as you change stance as a punch and is a complete waste of space.
