Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Despite having whet our appetites with the excellent boxing mini-game in Wii Sports, which demonstrated how much fun it could be to pick up the Wii remote and nunchuk and pretend they were a pair of boxing gloves, surprisingly few good boxing games have been made for the Wii. Facebreaker K.O. Party is one of the better ones, but it, too, lacks the sort of single-player depth necessary to draw in most fighting fans (not to mention the fact that the game's cartoonish, almost juvenile aesthetic will likely turn off serious boxing buffs).

Still, it should prove good fun for teenage audiences looking to kill some time with their friends. Indeed, the multi-player modes are where the game shines brightest. T.K.O. mode lets up to four friends select three fighters each and battle it out in an elimination-style competition. Punch-o-Matic, on the other hand, is an instant gratification party mode that selects random fighters, arenas, power-ups, and special punches for quick one-off bouts. It's good times for small get-togethers.
