Punch-Out!! : NES

Nintendo Entertainment System - NES (1990)

Review

Basically the same game as Mike Tyson"s Punch-Out!!, except with Mr Dream. All the same codes and tips still work. Nintendo could no longer sell the game with Mike Tyson"s name, since their contract had expired and he was no longer the champion. Some think it may have been with all the controversy that had been in his life around this time, but no one can say for sure that wasn't a minor influence. Another factor may have been that Nintendo knew the NES"s life wouldn"t be very much longer, so why bother paying for a contract for a game that is already successful for a game system that might be considered shelved in 2 or 3 yrs.
