"It should be said right off the bat that I did not play either the original Punch-Out!! games. This review is from a different perspective from that of most other reviews on the game. But that's not to say that I went into this game completely oblivious to the source material. I had definitely heard much praise about the old games as well as watched a fair amount of footage of them, so I had a pretty good idea of what I was getting myself into. And even with the nostalgia factor absent from my experience, Punch-Out!! still proved to provide an extremely fun, rewarding experience that should be experienced by old time fans and newcomers alike."
