So I just got done beating the last boss... wow. I can't believe they pulled that on the last boss, I literally can't believe it. That was an awesome pay off, especially since I have mad love for punch out. Some of the dialogue throughout the battle was simply brilliant, "I will crush you" and 'Splosion Man's random jibberish at the end, all with the retro punch out style portraits. It was really crazy and totally unexpected. The only downfall is it made the last boss the quickest and easiest to beat, in my opinion anyway. Perhaps it would have been better with two rounds of punch out action and then standard splode mechanics to take her down, for more of a huge explosion at the end.
The wedding afterwards was pretty good but I was already ready for it and it can't stand up to the original ending, it was still quite enjoyable though. I must say I enjoyed the part where the costumed Splosion Man and Ms. Splosion Man riding off on a motorcycle while Major Nelson's head flew at the screen and exploded. I noticed in the credits that they had a lot of their family members as extra's in the church scene which is pretty rad, also Alex got thanked in the credits.
Overall I thought the game was really fun with only one or two bad parts and definitely worth the 800 points, I can't wait to blast through the multiplayer and try going for that hardcore mode achievement. Truth be told I never did finish the original on hardcore I did manage to make it to near the end of the third world though, I might juggle the two while I try and S-Rank them both. So what did you think of the ending?
