A real upgrade but with traditional weaknesses

Punchout for the Wii is quite an upgrade from all of the previous Punchout games going back to the actual arcade game that I used to play in the days I had hair.

As you might suspect graphics is a huge upgrade but considering the game system that is almost obligatory. Still they are well done and the makers should get credit for it.

The Gameplay takes you through three different circuits where you can try to fight your way through a series of contenders to gain each belt. It also has a practice mode where if defeated you can continue to practice against an opponent until you feel ready to defeat him.

If you manage to go all the way then you have title defense mode, where each opponent improves dramatically, you also have "badges" where you attempt to win (or even in one case lose) in a particular way to unlock items.

If you actually "beat" the game (and that will take some time) there are special "extra" opponents that will pop up but that would be telling.

And now the weaknesses; the head to head mode that is frankly not all that exciting, but the real weakness is that the game falls into a pattern. You are basically signaled when to punch or counter punch. Although it would be very hard to do otherwise for me it really defeats the interactive modes of the Wii.

None of that seems to have slowed down my son who is actually the owner of the game and plays it over and over. I'm very sure he would give it one more star than me.

You will certainly get value for the money spent if you choose to buy it.
