    Wii Sports boxing

    Just a simple question. When playing the Wii Sports boxing game I feel like the controls don't respond like I want. The other games do, but in this specific one I feel like I hit and the character hits later, hits another way or doesn't hit at all. Does this happen to everyone or is it me that haven't got the aim of the game. Is there some special way to grab the control to get the thing working ok?

    Wii Sports Boxing does NOT track motion of your hands (e.g., punches or blocks). There is NO 1:1 motion tracking. The game does not throw your punches (roundhouse, uppercut, etc.) Instead, the game uses 'gestures' of the controllers (tilts, etc.) to throw different punches. This is why I doo not like Wii Sports Boxing. A quick web search will turn up the control scheme.

    OTOH, the upcoming Don King Boxing is supposed to track your actual punches.

    I gave up on Wii Sports Boxing specifically for this reason. I was throwing punches and not seeing them register and got tired of working up a sweat only to get clobbered.

    Thanks! Didn't know that, I thought it was supposed to register the movements. And yeah, that disappoints me too. It can be good as an exercise maybe but the movement really drives me mad. I'll look out for the movements, maybe that'll make it easier.

    It's not improving your 'timing' that helps, but learning the specific GESTURES for each move. These are various controller twists and tilts (forwards, sideways, etc.) that are needed to produce different punches and blocks.

    Disciple, Victorious Boxers fdoes a better job of motion tracking, but I hope that at least one of Don King Boxing, Punch Out, or Ready 2 Rumble will have even better punch tracking. I too want a good boxing workout sim. Don King Boxing will use the Wii Fit board for dodging and has workout routines included.

    You don't make 'punching' motions in WSB to throw punches onscreen. Instead, you need to use these GESTURE controls, copied from a posting on the Gamespot forums:

    High Guard: Hold Wiimote and Nunchuck vertically, then tilt both controllers inward toward your body to cover face.

    Mid Guard: Hold Wiimote and Nunchuck parallel to ground, then tilt both controllers inward if still not covering center of body.

    Left Dodge: Hold Wiimote and Nunchuck vertically, then tilt both controllers to your left.

    Right Dodge: Hold Wiimote and Nunchuck vertically, then tilt both controllers to your right.

    Right High Jab: Hold Wiimote vertically, with controls facing yourself, and jerk it forward with the wrist. Helps to keep arm stationary, and just let the Wiimote fall forward.

    Right Mid Jab: Hold Wiimote parallel to ground, and jerk downward. Again, keep arm stationary and just push Wiimote downward with wrist.

    Right High Hook: Hold Wiimote vertically, with controls facing yourself, and rotate it quickly to the left, as in this (please forgive my ASCII art):

    BEFORE:
    ____
    | D |
    | A |
    | 1 |
    | 2 |

    AFTER:
    ___________
    |D A 1 2|

    Right Uppercut: Hold Wiimote parallel to ground, and then jerk upward. It’s the exact opposite movement from the Right Mid Jab.

    Right Low Hook: Hold Wiimote parallel to ground, but turn it 90 degrees COUNTER-CLOCKWISE so that the face of the Wiimote is looking out to your left, then jerk it in the direction of the face of the controller. It’s exactly like the right uppercut, except the entire motion is rotated to the left 90 degrees.

    Left High Jab: Hold Nunchuck up vertically so that the analog stick is facing you, and then jerk it forward. Just like Right High Jab.

    Left Mid Jab: Hold Nunchuck parallel to ground, and jerk it downward. Just like the Right Mid Jab.

    Left Uppercut: Hold Nunchuck parallel to ground, and jerk it upward. Just like Right Uppercut

    Left Hook: Hold Nunchuck parallel to ground, but turn it 90 degrees CLOCKWISE so that the face of the controller is looking out to your right, then jerk it in direction of the face of controller. Basically just like the Right Mid Hook.

    * Turn your Boxing Gloves Silver: After you’ve beaten the Grand Champion, Matt, in a boxing match you’ll be able to wear silver boxing gloves. To do so, hold (1) when the screen becomes black before a boxing match.
