Punch-Out Comes To Nintendo Wii

June 11, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Believe it or not, Punch-Out!! For the Wii has been a very highly anticipated game. The originals are considered boxing game classics, and some of the finest games of the NES generation. In reality, as shown by positive reviews of the NES version of Punch-out!! downloaded on the Wii, it's still as much of a blast to play as ever.

The graphics have an amazing cell-shaded look to them, like Windwaker only a little more realistic. They exhibit a very strange yet somehow familiar style. When you strike an opponent hard in the face, he's shocked for a second and small birds flutter around his head. Not just that, but had such a far-out visual style manifested itself in any other of today's fighting games it would have been shunned. This extends to the opponents themselves, all of which are pretty wacky ; from Disco Boy, a self-absorbed disco fanatic who enjoys doing a little dance in the ring before the match, to King Hippo, who...well, I'm really not quite sure what he is, except big, has almost no neck, and is maybe totally daft.

At first look, Punch-Out!!'s gameplay seems something similar to a far more stylized version of Wii Sports Boxing. While a NES-style form of play is available by turning the Wii remote on it's side, the standard practice is to use both the Wiimote and the nunchuk. Move them forward and backward to perform different punches, and move them both to the side to avoid. When knocked down, shake the mote and chuk to rise and re-enter the fight, at which point a new round begins.

As for the sound department, you can think how superior the sound is in comparison to how it was on the NES. The punch-induced smacks and taunts from opponents come across just realistically enough for you to engaged in what's happening.

The original look and feel of the game has been incredibly well re-imagined, Nintendo having clearly put a lot of care into rendering this game. Punch-Out!! may seem like an incredibly simplistic title, but then, that doesn't mean it isn't incredibly fun!

Games Wii Look Forward to

March 13, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

2008 was a rather underwhelming year in terms of the Wii games that were released, things are going to get better in 2009. Or at least, it's looking that way. Here are three three games that hopes are will take true advantage of the Wii's hardware this.

Punch-Out!

What is it about revivals? The film industry are doing it and so is the game industry. But we can let Punch-Out off, as it is well worthy of a remake. The last time Punch-Out!! was released was in the form of Super Punch-Out on the Super Nintendo.

The games thrive off of action involving well-timely executed attacks. The older games sent you through a series of fights and boss battles, where each person had their own timing you had to figure out. An obvious upgrade in the graphics is present with a cartoony, cell-shade look that is not only sure to please fans of the franchise, but also hook outsiders who will soon want to give it a try.

The original Punch-Out remains both unique and fun to this day, so how can a remake by the best of developers go wrong?

MadWorld

MadWorld is one of the most unique games to appear on any system this generation. It is also one of the most violent, but that's a good thing. One of the most unique aspects of MadWorld is its graphics, everything is in Black and White, except for the blood and guts. Yes, it's that kind of game...

When your character can make a chainsaw come out of his arm, you know that a gore fest is what's in store. The action is very stylized and combo-oriented. Whilst battling it out with enemies in urban areas, you can deal all kinds of damage, from shoving stop signs through enemies' heads, to reaching inside someone's chest and ripping his heart out. Meanwhile, a humorous voice announces each move as you perform it, commentating as if it were some kind of football game.

Definitely not for the faint hearted, but MadWorld's presentation and gameplay has us curious...

The Conduit

Not many developers' would argue that the Wii is, technologically, inferior to the PS3 and the Xbox 360. The Conduit developers, High Voltage, believe differently. they believe the Wii is the better and want to prove it with The Conduit.

The Conduit is a first-person sci-fi shooter, with gorgeous detail. High Voltage has put a lot into this game, and it's showing. The game will not only have an extended singleplayer campaign, but a 16-player multiplayer online mode.

The Conduit is certainly taking the Wii to the limit and is definitely worth checking out.
