    Wonder if this is any good. Wish Nintendo would make a new super punchout for the Wii.

    Yup, but the game isn't good and the motion controls are flaky (unless you like you your boxers to act schizophrenic). Lacks the depth of the other HnI games out there. English voice acting is trash

    I like the tv show and played the usa version. Controls with the wiimote and nunchuck are a disater. The game is cool but unplayable, it's not a technical boxing game. Try it if u're fan of hajime no ippo but even like that it's hard to be happy with that game. Graphics are cools. English voice like usual aren't terrible.The multi mode is with slit screen and still is unplayable. My review is 5/10 if you're fan and 3/10 for the others. BUY IT if you're rich [​IMG]

    A very average boxing-game.
    IGN: 4.5/10
    Gamespot: 6/10

    There are two very promising games announced:
    * FaceBreaker (EA Sports)
    * Don King Presents: Prizefighter (2K Sports)

    and another promising one:
    * Ready2Rumble - Revolution (10tacle studios)

    I can only wonder why this game has +16 age limit. In here Hellsing Ultimate has +13. If you have seen that, you propably understand what I mean.

    woop clocked this game while testing it out, was gonna throw it to one side once i got knocked out, next thing i know credits are rolling. worst random punch clockage. stick to wii sports, much better controls [​IMG]

    if they sorted out the controls this couldve been quite a cool game

    used swing mode 2, so you can move while swinging punches

    Hey,

    In this release, do you actually see the Ubisoft intro at boot time ?

    Cheers [​IMG]

    What about the Gamecube controller, I heard it can be used, but does it make the experience any better ?

    Actually... This was only published by Ubisoft in Europe. They had no involvement with the US or JP editions.

    I can't believe they would change "Revolution" to "Challenge" in the title for the Europe release.

    I can just imagine the panel of "experts" in charge of turning blood green and removing witchcraft references going, "Well, we gotta charge them for SOMETHING!" "Ok, how about we change the name? Revolution... You know. Heads getting cut off and stuff? Oh and make the game 16+!" "Pure genius."

    I was disappointed when I played the US version too... Voices are horrible, graphics flicker like crazy, and the controls are just plain shoddy... Doesn't do the series justice... In fact, none of the hajime no ippo games do the series justice... A real shame.

    After a while I played using this method because the motion controls were so unreliable. What results is that easy and normal mode become WAY too easy (all you do is lean forward and throw hard body blows and you'll beat 85% of the people in the game). Didn't try hard mode because I got sick of the game, but I've heard the difficulty is better. It's just that the game is a disappointment when compared to the other HnI games out there that had more depth and responsive controls. There is also not much that gives each separate boxer much personality aside from looks, special moves, and attributes. Of course that sounds like what different characters should be like, but they play too similarly to point where there is not much room to have radically different playing styles. Another thing, depth perception is somewhat a problem from the camera angle

    Try the GBA game, I'd say it's the best out of the ones I've played... and if you have someone else to play it with, I would imagine it would be great fun
