Don't Call It a Come Back

Everyone and I do mean everyone has played Punch-Out!! (originally titled Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!) and it's sequel, Super Punch-Out!! Or at the least everyone should have. For many gamers, these have been the definitive boxing games, outranking titles that portray the sport realistically.

15 long years have passed since the last Punch-Out!! title. Why there wasn't a showing on the N64 or even the GameCube is anyone's guess. But ultimately, that doesn't matter. What does matter is that Little Mac has finally returned in a game for the Wii simply titled Punch-Out!!
Old favorites return like Glass Joe and King Hippo. Those of you that hate Mr. Sandman (like me), cower in fear because he's back and he's still a jerk.

I haven't played this one yet, but I've heard nothing but great things about it. If your Wii is collecting dust, grab this puppy and let the good times roll.

After Wii Boxing from Wii Sports, they had to get to this eventually.

I'm definitely going to get this for my birthday(which is in a month. I did play the original for the NES years ago, so playing this game would be a blast from the past! Too bad Mike Tyson won't be on this game though..
