Cartoony, retro brawler with humor, but too short.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

better then the others

even if you do not like the others I would recommend this one. it is short, yes, but it has a charm and fun about it most other game don't. best game on the wii of '09 thus far. but it is very hard. there is, of course, punching, but no guns, knifes or any kind of weapon. there is also no blood.
