Punch-Out! Features List (Rumor)

Punch-Out! Logo

As I was reading this long list of Punch-Out! features I wasn’t sure whether to report this as news or rumor. The information comes from a site called NintendoDpad. They seem legit enough, but they don’t cite any sourcres for their information. Still, it sounds true enough and looks like Punch-Out! will provide a deeper experience than originally anticipated.

Here are some of the key features they mention:

- 3 challenges per boxer which if exacuted will reward you with unlockables

- “Alot” of unlockables including characters, ring environments, victory animations and music, among others

- Unlike other Punch-Out games you will have the ability to use all 3 stars at once, doing so will unleash the triple star spinning uppercut. Think about it as the equal to the Dragon Punch from Street Fighter

- The challenges will be in Exhibition mode. You will have 3 bonues in each fight ranging in difficulty.

- If you lose 100 times you will earn the training helmet which makes you invulnerable

- Here is the BIGGIE, after you beat the game there is a special mode that you will unlock. Nintendo is hush hush about this secret.

Madden 09 All-Play

Madden 09 All-Play

Description: Madden 09 All-Play marks the twentieth anniversary of the Madden franchise. It’s the third iteration of Madden on the Nintendo Wii.

Madden 09 All-Play decided to put Brett Favre on the cover, marking one of the few times a retired player (or so we thought) was cover boy for Madden. To accompany Favre’s return, EA decided to give people the option of putting a custom sleeve into the game box, with Favre’s current team, the Jets.

Reviews:

WiiBlog – 7.5/10: “If Madden 09 All Play improved more on their older modes I’d probably be giving the game a higher score. With an unchanged Franchise, Superstar, and Online mode it’s hard to say that Madden 09 All Play is a whole lot different than Madden 07. If you think a somewhat more refined control scheme is reason enough, or the addition of Call Your Shot sounds cool then Madden 09 All Play is worth a buy.”

GameFocus – 8.1/10: “Madden NFL 09 All-Play is a far more complete gaming experience than its little brother NCAA 09 and I can easily say that it’s an improvement over last years’ version. The All-Play controls are definitely a good thing and graphics have been improved but sadly, nothing else really shines after that. ”

GamesRadar – 80/100: “Even so, Madden NFL 09 All Play is blazing an important trail to reintroduce lost football fans to the franchise. It’s an undeniably fun experience that will please many in its target audience, and even includes roster updates and online play. Not to mention we’re really starting to like a little waggle with our football. We may be old curmudgeons, but fun is fun, and Madden does a lot more right than not.”

MetaCritic Score: 82/100
