Well, the punches are thrown with the buttons (no joystick) which I actually prefer because the joystick has a slight delay imo. The joystick is used
to move your hands to deflect punches.
The button combinations are simple, for example, A and X is left uppercut, B and Y is right uppercut; that's as hard as it gets. Holding down the
left bumper will make you put more energy into your punch for a hard attack, but this decreases your energy more and will make subsequent punches less
powerful unless you rest for a bit. All the other punches are just individual buttons.
The danger with button punches is that it may encourage button mashing, but this will make you lose for sure, because your energy bar will go down to
zero and your defense will likely be down since you're constantly trying to throw punches. So overall there is some strategy, and the buttons aren't
as hard as they initially seem imo.
