Description: Get into the rhythm, take fighting pose! Punchout: Music is a rhythmic boxercise game. Enjoy tons of handcrafted levels and punchout the music, in the futuristic stadium. Punch the incoming notes with your energy-gloves – you must match the colour of glove and note and its flying direction. With this game, you become a champion of the rhythmical boxing!
Review: Have you ever wanted to listen to J-pop songs while you punch pointless balls of light that have nothing to do with the beat of the music? If you have ‘Punchout: Music’ is the game for you. Yes, it is yet another music/rhythm game that gets the fundamentals of the genre wrong by having zero beat mapping at all. This, in turn, makes the gameplay feel cold and pointless, in fact, it’s not fun to play in any way, even the menu is pretty crap. Throw on the £11.39 price tag and you have a game that is not worth your time or money. As with so many other games in this genre even if it was free I wouldn’t be recommending it.
