"[I]f you don't like arcade boxing you won't like Facebreaker on the Wii either. The fighting system isn't balanced enough and 13 characters and 13 stages isn't enough in 2008 for a game to be considered a must have title. On the other hand the graphics and sound are nicely done and the game isn't as broken as some reviews make it seem (at least in my opinion). Unfortunately you won't have a long lasting experience with this game. If it wasn't for the gameplay flaws this would have been a nice effort really. If you like arcade/party boxing games this game could be interesting for you, especially as you should find it for 40$ new. Maybe give it a rent first, to make up your mind."
