 PLATFORM: WII
STICK AND MOVE
ictorious Boxer’s difficulty has some crazy mood swings. A particular fighter might have me on the ropes for several rounds before taking me out of the match altogether, but then in our rematch, I’ll knock him out halfway through the first round. It’s not like I’ve changed up my tactics much. Laying on the jabs then following through with a well-timed right hook or special attack usually does the trick. That said, the Wii motion controls fell pretty good after you warm up to them, and it helps that there are six different control schemes to pick from. Even though the plot has been trimmed down worse than a Harry Potter film, I actually got pulled into the Japanese manga-based story. Sure, the PSone-like crowds look terrible, but Wii Boxing fans finally have a meatier boxer to obsess about than Wii Sports.
