Punch out is easily accesible these days via the NES Classic Mini. This wonderful mini console is an amazing tribute to the gradfather of true high quality console gaming. I have always thought that the original NES games were usually amazing when it game to gameplay and skill, the limitations at the time around graphics meant developers and game designers really had to innovate. Punch Out is just as fun today as it was to play back in the day, it is still however feriousioly hard and has a steep learning curv when it comes to perfecting cat like reflexes and breaking down the weak spot in your opponent.
