    Punch Out!!® Featuring Mr. Dream (NES®, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): As young boxer Little Mac, players have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to battle the big guys of the World Video Boxing Association circuit. Take them on one by one, starting with skinny Glass Joe. Battle up through King Hippo and all the way to the WVBA Champion himself. Players use their best jabs, hooks and power uppercuts to knock out opponents, but must pay attention to subtle changes in their body position to dodge jaw-breaking blows. With great graphics, addictive action and a touch of humor, this game will keep players entertained for hours.

    Virtua Fighter™ 2 (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): Virtua Fighter was the very first 3-D fighting game in the industry and introduced six unique characters, each with their own martial arts style. In Virtua Fighter 2, the intrepid fighters return to the World Fighting Tournament. Players take to the stage to see who will claim the championship title. Will it be Lau Chan, Kage-Maru, Wolf Hawkfield, Jeffry McWild, Akira Yuki, Jacky Bryant, Sarah Bryant or Pai Chan? The answer lies within. Players immerse themselves in this technically challenging game and see if they have what it takes to be the champion of the second World Fighting Tournament.

    Bonk's Revenge (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): The "hardheaded" hero is back for more in the second installment of the Bonk series. Taking place in the Monster Kingdom, Bonk the Caveman makes his way toward King Drool III. Bonk's Revenge is a side-scrolling action game in which players Jump and "Bonk" (head-butt) their enemies while they make their way to the goal at the end of each stage. Double, even triple, attack power by eating the meat that appears in a stage. There are eight different hidden bonus stages, and the Dinosaur Train that appears after players defeat a boss will change depending on how many Smileys they've collected. With new actions such as the Triangle Jump and the ability to climb trees, as well as seven variety-packed stages, Bonk's Revenge will keep players playing over and over.

    Ah yes Punch Out, a game I grew up loving....too bad it doesn't have Mike Tyson. Virtua Fighter 2 isn't too shabby either....overall a great VC day.

    It looks like Nintnedo did a good job, *pats Nintendo on back*. Even though I'm not much into Virtua Fighter 2 and Punchout, there's probably some people that are. I'd really like Super Punch Out.

    I heard Virtua Fighter 2 sucks though, so do your research people. The Virtua Fighter series might not have gotten good until they were 3d.

    Any way I'll get Bonk's Revenge

    Aye, this is the crappy Mega Drive/Genesis port, which they had to remake in 2D. Save your points for something better- it's on the Sega Collection for the PS2 anyway.

    I never owned Punch Out when i was younger, so i think i'll purchase that one today. From what i have heard it sounds like a good title tho.

    Bonk's Revenge is fun and all, but the music can get annoying sometimes.

    Don't buy Virtua Fighter 2 if you're a respectful gamer.

    punch out is good. vf sucks though, it was a great step in fighting games when it came out but not worth the wii points now

    At least they could have put Mike Tyson back in-- He could bite the ear off of Little Mac in the last round :D

    Punch Out is the best!! I still have the nes cartridge and its one of the only ones that still work however, so i'm not going to buy it on vc, but I recommend it to everyone.

    Super Paper Mario is hardly a platformer, it's an action RPG. Go get Bonk, it makes the most sense to me if you don't like punch out. Or hell don't get anything, lol.
