Punch Out! The original arcade game is somewhat similar to Mike Tyson punch out but with some big differences. Some of the fighters are the same, which I will list them shortly. The referee is the same as in the console version (Mario). The punches are like the ones for Super Punch Out on the SNES, hold up and hit either right or left buttons for a high hook or cross, hold down and hit either right or left buttons for a low body shot. Same way with your guard, hold up to block high punches and down to block the other fighter's body shots. Of course you can dodge left or right just like in the console series. Another difference between Mike Tyson's punch out and the arcade version is that your punches won't tire you out so you can swing away all day! Also in this version their is a knock out meter that lights up when you hit the other fighter a bunch of times without getting hit. Sorry I haven't found the uppercut in this game if their is one at all.

Fighters:
Glass Joe. Not too much to describe here, just punch away and you will soon shatter his glass jaw. ( sorry for the pun their haha )

Piston Hurricane: A fighter that made his way too Super Punch Out, he is a little more challenging then Glass Joe but not by much.

Bald Bull: Here is when the game starts to get a little more difficult, just like the nes console version Bald Bull does his bull rush uppercut so be sure to avoid that and the victory should be yours.

Kid Quick: The name says Quick but really his power is in his body blows, so cover the old bread basket up and knock this one out quick.

Pizza Pasta: You thought I was going to say Don Flamenco? Sorry no cigar, this version has Pizza Pasta, a feisty Italian ready to rumble. This fighter is quick and will jab relentlessly at your dome, cover up or dodge and strike when you can.

Mr. Sandman: The World champ! Sandman has some of the attacks from the nes console series, the razor uppercuts, dodge these punches and counter for the win.

Overall: 8.5 Although the game play is better on the nes, this version has some excellent qualities. If you are a Punch Out fan then I suggest you try this one out

Graphics: 9 The character graphics really stand out in this game. Your oponets eyes will glow yellow when they are going to strike and the fighters will feint and move around the ring some. The background is nice, the crowd moves and cheers. In this version everything but your gloves and hair is a see through green graph so you can see the other fighters punch type, very cool. 

Sound: 9 The sound department gets a high score from me because of the voice effects ( a lot of them). Although hearing certain voices over and over can get irritating I still would rather hear them instead of having no voices at all.

Addictiveness: 7 Once you beat the game you can start again but instead of being green your graph lined body will be yellow and the game will get harder. So unless you are just a hard core Punch Out fan I rated it kind of low in this category.

Story: 7 Another low score. Really little to no story here, you are a seasoned boxer hungry to take on the champ, the end.

Depth: 8 The depth gets a higher score from me because your enemies will feint and have different patterns too learn as well as finding some cheap shots at just the right time could knock your enemies out, so look for them!

Difficulty: 8 Even though in this version you can punch forever and not get tired it still can be difficult to beat so I rated it high in this department. Also the fighters can be tricky and it is hard to time their punches to dodge them. So expect a little better game play from the nes console version but I suggest playing this one at least once because compared to the others in the series the arcade version is different.

I remember this game growing up as a kid my dad would always play it. Not as good overall as the NES version (In my opinion the NES version was more fun and easier to figure out how to play) that being said it's a great game that everyone should check out.

Good review!
