That game looks extremely average. Even more average than the average shooter. The programmers and graphic designers seem to have gone out of their way to add an extra amount of average in the game.

How would it compare to say, 1942?

It's pretty average by today's standards. Heck, it's nothing extraordinary in comparison with older gems. 1942? Eh, it's different. Like I said, it's more like Life Force, at least so far as the game set-up. Gameplay-wise, it's more of a Tiger Heli-type affair although it's more futuristic than that.

I'll put it up today. I got delayed unexpectedly because of a program I needed.

#1: So true, though I admit I went into the game without any doubts.. not to mention it came with the Gameboy so I had nothing to lose =). It's probably my favorite in the whole series, I'd die if they remade a 16-bit version of this with enhanced music.

#5: I don't know if it was just my cart, but there was always a 50% chance the game would freeze after beating Super Machoman. So beating Tyson was a big deal.. somehow when they switched over to "Mr.Dream" it just wasn't a big deal anymore. Still I can relate; at the tender age of 5 this game already had violence coursing through my vains and is probably one of my earliest influences of wanting to become a boxer.

#8: I never played Chrono Trigger until long after it came out. My friends ranted and raved about it non-stop (one in particular brought it up almost daily). So I decided that since it would be damn near impossibly to find a cart of it, I'd get the ROM. Damn.. I finally knew why the hell it was so popular.

#1: I never thought of that! Now I'm going to kick down Nintendo's doors, get Miyamoto into a submission of some kind (I'm leaning towards a figure-four leg lock) and demand they do that.

#5: Hmmm, I've never had that problem. Nintendo changed Mike Tyson to Mr. Dream after the Tyson rape scandal to avoid bad publicity.

#8: And you found out what all the hoopla was about.

It's a shame, not only was Tyson an awesome fighter, but an intimidating pixelated final boss. I had played the original when I was about 4 or 5, a few years later in highschool a friend of mine hooked up her old NES and had the 'New' Punch-Out. I played it all the way through and got to the end and was like "What the ****?? They replaced Tyson with Vanilla Ice? This is bull!".

I think anyone who buys the Punch Out with the white final boss is a completely bigoted racist and probably also a member of the KKK.

If you have a friend that is black or know of someone somewhere who is black, that means you are not racist.

I think you are lying, though, PaladinAngel. Look at your avatar. A bunch of white guys with a weapon.

No I meant the friend who's house I played NES with that bought the Punchout w/ Mr.Dream was black, thus pointing out the irony in your following statement.

And my avatar has nothing to do with race, only weeaboos... damn weeaboos..
