    This game was fun....and still is fun. It will keep you on your toes and will still present a challenge

    Rated on May 26, 2007 by nozgrd74

    This game is emulated extremely well and still is a very solid game. To play a game that brings back so many memories is great, but when you play a game that still makes memories 12 years or so later...

    Punch-Out!! is one of the greatest games of the 8-bit era and it's still classic fun today.

    Hey, where's that ear biting kid dynamyte?

    Punch out is my personal favorite boxing game. It is just so satisfying when you punch the crap out of the other players. I really liked how whenever you punch King Hippo, his pants would fall down. H...

    It was one of the best games and most played games in my NES collection, even after the SNES came out.

    What happens when you are the best performer in your sport? They make a game in you honor and give you a major role in that game. What happens when you fall from that high point to a very low point? ...

    Punch Out has aged well, really well.

    Rated on January 08, 2010 by weers25

    Punch Out! used to star mike tyson back in the NES days, but for the VC release they had no longer got the license. So Nintendo slapped on a new name for the famous boxer and released the game again. ...

    Surely one 'Best of NES', and also one 'Best of all-time videogames'.
