    Whether or not you like boxing or anime is irrelevant, as Victorious Boxers: Revolution fails to deliver motion controls that top even Wii Sports Boxing, offers very little as far as anime games go (even the simplistic Eyeshield 21 has this beat), and is a total mess of wonky control schemes, weak presentation, and broken gameplay.
  2. It's kind of sad that Victorious Boxers Revolution was botched so badly. Given that the series was a somewhat obscure anime contemporary to Fight Night, and the source material being one of the better cartoons I've seen, seeing the Wii title being so bad is a shame.
  3. A game with plenty of potential that's just devastatingly disappointing in every sense of the word.
  4. This game looks like it's got moves, but it can't handle itself in the ring. Stick with Wii Sports boxing - it's not great, but it's better than this, and if you have a Wii, you already own it.

    While the multiplayer may be passable, the rest of VBR is so flawed that it tests your patience more than your boxing skills. If you've been waiting for a Wii boxing game, you should just keep waiting and go back to Wii Sports for now -- at least that was free with your Wii.

    Giving this game a 1 is almost doing it a favor. The fact of the matter is, this game is awful. The controls are completely and utterly stupid. In other words, they don't work at all. I tried to punch my friend numerous times, and I fell over. Also, you can't win if your not the largest character available. I literally walked away, ate pizza, came back and my friend had not knocked over my character just standing there. I think he actually hurt himself trying to knock my character over. So please, if you read this, don't even look, play or even have anything to do with this game. When I tried to play the game again, my Wii stabbed me in the face. Please, make the pain stop.

    Utterly useless motion controls make this almost unplayable.

    This is a very solid boxing game. Love the characters, controls and overall presentation. Feels like your in the ring more than any other game.
