Pato Box is an absolutely interesting game with a lot of content. For fans of Punch-Out !! it is a must buy and even for non-fans, I think it is worth taking a look at this game, either by it's artistic style reminiscent of comics or by it's gameplay.
Pato Box is definitely a game worth checking out. If not because Nintendo haven’t provided the world with a new Punch-Out!! game in nine years, then definitely because it’s a weirdly beautiful game starring a boxer with a duck head, who has been wronged by a large corporation and seeks revenge against a bevy of interesting and unique characters.
Pato Box not only succeeds in recreating the Punch-Out!! boxing experience; but it also pushes the formula further with a very good adventure mode, a great graphic style and a group of strange, unique characters.
Pato Box stands out for several reasons, and there is clear inspiration from certain successful games and films. Developer Bromio does an admirable job at implementing these cohesively, but it’s unfortunate that difficulty is a flaw overshadowing this black & white revenge tale.
While its adventure mode-style exploration could do with a little more meat on its bones, we all know why we’re here - the Punch-Out!!-style bosses. The exploration sections fail to do the eye-catching visual style (and the story) much justice, but those brilliant big bads more than make up for it. Sprinkle in an '80s-style synth soundtrack that wouldn’t feel out of place in Hotline Miami and you’ve got a rough-yet-ready new contender on the Switch eShop.
