I'm gonna knock you out!
on 12 November 2013
Who would have thought it? A boxing game on the Wii that actually has substance. Of course if you've ever played Punch Out on the NES or SNES (I hadn't) you knew that this was going to be a cut above the rest, a haymaker to all the Punch Out Wii wanna-be's. But this is more than just boxing, this is twice as addictive and engaging as Fight Night on the PS3 because it really challenges you at every turn, you will be sweating by the time you work out that TKO at long last. Punch Out requires patience and skill but taking down that opponent that literally seemed impossible an hour before is a titanic feeling, so completely rewarding and absolutely endearing.
Punch Out is amazing, it deserves more attention than it got but it will rest in peace along side a wealth of overlooked Wii classics. Amongst all the ludicrous dross that pollutes the Wii there are a glut of real diamonds, and this is one. Sadly it does get explicitly difficult, impossible in fact (certainly for me), but while it lasts you'll be having a blast.
