Games Review: Punch-Out!!

Wii, Nintendo, £44.99

Many moons ago there was a boxing game that summed up Nintendo’s fearsome fun factor – Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, a sprightly arcade gem that mixed killer punches with way-out characters. Two decades later, Nintendo has turned this NES heritage title into a brilliant Wii game that will please those who remember it way back when, as well as thrilling new gamers with its over-the-top combat and non-stop action. Using motion to control your matches, canny fighters will go for the precision offered by the remote instead to deliver the combos that set this game apart. The only gripe is that you can’t play using the Classic Controller, but this aside, Punch-Out!! is hard to fault.
