    Pato Box is an absolutely interesting game with a lot of content. For fans of Punch-Out !! it is a must buy and even for non-fans, I think it is worth taking a look at this game, either by it's artistic style reminiscent of comics or by it's gameplay.

    Pato Box takes the Punch-Out!! fighting style and gives it a Madworld aesthetic, resulting in an unexpectedly wonderful combination. The 3D sections aren't the most exciting, but the boss fights more than make up for that. Pato Box offers an intense challenge that will put your gaming skills to the test, but also potentially frustrate you at the same time.

    A lovely game. There’s a ton of charm and I still can’t get over how well the developers used this monochrome aesthetic. The comic book style and the kickass soundtrack are icing on the cake.

    Pato Box not only succeeds in recreating the Punch-Out!! boxing experience; but it also pushes the formula further with a very good adventure mode, a great graphic style and a group of strange, unique characters.

    A great visual style makes Pato Box stand out from the crowd, as does the duck/boxer protagonist. If you’re up for a challenge, with a game that requires you to master the rhythm of each boss fight, then Pato Box will be a champion for you.

    Pato Box stands out for several reasons, and there is clear inspiration from certain successful games and films. Developer Bromio does an admirable job at implementing these cohesively, but it’s unfortunate that difficulty is a flaw overshadowing this black & white revenge tale.

    Despite having amazing bosses with the ability to evolve, this game does not get to be especially enjoyable because of its free exploration chapters which are a nuisance.
