Showtime punches in images

Showtime punches in images

Showtime Championship Boxing gets back on the ring for a new series of images. It will be available in the hexagon this friday for Nintendo Wii. The Wiimote & Nunchuk combo tries to simulate boxing movements in this simulation - which looks quite bad really. The gameplay also seems to be abysmal, if we can count on some reviews from America, where the game has been launched several weeks earlier.

Why buy this crap is you already have boxing in Wii-sports? It's no use trying to make a realistic looking game on the Wii, it makes the console and game look bad.. Wii 3rd party developers should understand this.. Get more creative, like Nintendo itself, to hide the lack of power in the Wii..

Give me Mii boxing so i can have a Elvis Presley Vs Michael Jackson punch fest.
Or Wii Punch Out would suffice.

What about a Wii boxing game where you punch old people in a mall? That would be hilarious!

Why are there so many boxing games being made for the Wii ( in comparison to other consoles atm ), the Wii couldn't ever have a decent boxing game because none of its bloody software is capable of tracking a single movement you do.

EG Throw an uppercut, it throws a hook, throw a straight right, it throws a hook, throw a hook it throws a straight right ect ect

If they improve control accuracy over other Wii boxers, I will buy it

    GriftGFX I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (7 Hours ago)
