  1. Facebreaker shows some promise at the start; it’s plucky, full of spunk, and mildly charming. But play it more and it becomes apparent that it’s nothing but a one tricky pony. That charm and dazzle soon withers away along with your enthusiasm, and Facebreaker ends up punching itself in the face.
  2. If you're after some boxing action on the Wii, it might be best to stick with Wii Sports for now and wait for Punch-Out!! This simply won't satisfy.

    How can the same team that produced the outstanding Fight Night Round 3 - which is arguably the best boxing simulation in videogame history - also associate its name with one of the poorest boxing titles every made? I honestly have no idea - and call me stuck in my ways, but I'm off to download Punch-Out!! from the Virtual Console and have myself some actual fun.

The game is a solid 8 if you play it with friends, if you plan to play it alone it's 7. The multiplayer was the real focus in this game, and it actually works. It's just so fun to virtually beat the sh*t out of your friends/girlfriend :) The controls are very good, in fact 1:1 responsive, nice graphics, nice EA Trax soundtrack as usual, the characters are nice and funny, but nowhere near as iconic as MK or Tekken characters.
    The only problem is the cheap Cpu A.I. It cheats sometimes, therefore you have to try many times if you want to win. Choose Romeo or Molotov, it's much easier to play with them, and you wont get pissed so often.
    It's a great partygame even if not the best fighting game on the system, but definately better, than what the critics say

    Not a bad game overall, short and to the point, I mean come on its a boxing game and thats what you get! In my opinion better graphics thanNot a bad game overall, short and to the point, I mean come on its a boxing game and thats what you get! In my opinion better graphics than the rest if ya like the cartoony comic type of stuff. Really easy to jump into a quick game. Was disappointed that there is no first person perspective in any of the scenarios, Boooo. It also lacks the immersion of being in the game as far as actual body movements with the remotes, not bad tough. All in all it was worth the $40 but no more. Still waiting for a more realistic version of the Wii sports boxing! Please someone give us a decent first person perspective. Full Review »
