    About a year ago on PC this was one of the most ambitious time management games of the time – and it still is on console. With lots of humour, a fairly deep and tactical turn based fight management, a whodunit for good measure and an inspired 16-bit-retro-fell to it, Punch Club will draw you in. But within all the movie quotes and references you’ll also find a great amount of grind.

    Punch Club may not be the fighting experience we were expecting, but what’s missed on the fighting side is more than made up for by the exceptionally well worked management aspects of the game. It can take a while to get to grips with just how everything works, and just how you’re going to find time to fit everything into the day, but those that spend enough time will quickly find themselves enjoying one of the best management sims currently available.

    Punch Club is a combat simulator with elements of sports management and RPG. Its 8-bit graphics and chiptune melodies will take us back to the 80s movies based on boxing and martial arts. We must take care of our character and train him in a 'point and click' story that you will love it if you have patience but it will despair those who hope to find a fighting game.

    Punch Club is an addictive game and more complex than it seems. It has a intelligent and interesting gameplay, but it is not a fighting game, but a management game.

    To the developer’s credit, there is essentially an easy mode that stops stat degradation if you simply want to focus on winning and story elements, but achievements are disabled in this mode too, which is why I skipped playing it. Punch Club can be addictive, and if you’re a sim-management fan you’ll feel right at home with tons of things to balance and do, weighing the pros and cons of every choice. In the end I think that Punch Club Manager would have probably been a more fitting title for this game.

    A fun little rpg that uses a lot of the mechanics you hate in mobile games in an improved way. There could be more variety in the gameplayA fun little rpg that uses a lot of the mechanics you hate in mobile games in an improved way. There could be more variety in the gameplay here, but its fun for a few hours here and there. Can be frustrating watching timers all the time though. Expand
