It’s bursting with personality, (though regrettably very little of that is its own) reliant on bygone eras and pop-culture references to establish its lighthearted and fun tone. Punch Club is tedious at times, thanks to an unfortunate level-down systems that artificially extend the road to the championship with grinding repetition, but its upgrades, stat growth, and more compensate with satisfying depth.
As the story and surprises that can be found here are a major reason that Punch Club is so utterly fantastic, it would be detrimental and just plain villainous to ruin it for other people. Lazy Bear Games have created a retro themed-world that is wonderfully entertaining and simply must be experienced by gamers far and wide. Considering that this is the inaugural title for the Russian studio, this realization of their vision is all the more impressive.
Punch Club wears itself out like a fighter with a low stamina score. The love of fighting movies is plain to see in the numerous references, but for all its affection for the subject matter, the game is simply underdeveloped. There’s little management in this self-proclaimed boxing tycoon management game, and this issue is only intensified when Punch Club demolishes the supporting pillars of the well-balanced life sim aspects to put all the weight on its impotent combat.
