Great reviews. Personally, I’ve always loved Punchout! better than Super Punchout!. Just thought I’d let you know that there is a reason behind the Wii having Mr. Dream. In 1990 Nintendo and Mike Tyson decided to part ways, after a contract dispute. So, rather than paying Tyson forever, the big N re-released the game as “Punchout! Featuring Mr. Dream”. Which was, of course, the same game, with one difference. At the end, Tyson is gone, replaced by a guy using the same sprite, with white skin and a slightly altered head, Mr. Dream. Personally, I always liked the Tyson version better just because it was Tyson, and in those days he was THE MAN in boxing.

I was just going to say the exact same thing that James said, but in my opinion, it should have never had Tyson in the game from the beginning. All the characters that were in the game were made up and Mario as the ref. Then out of no where, a real person pops up and kills your imagination. This is why I thought that Mr. Dream should have always been there. I know everyone may have there own way of thinking about it but I thought that I’d put in my own thoughts on the matter.

rewtbeer, your doin a great job, keep it up
