pretty nice game
An arcade-styled boxing game developed by EA Canada. Created by the same team that developed the award-winning Fight Night Round 3, FaceBreaker offers irreverent fun, immersive gameplay and stylized graphics. In this in-your-face, arcade world full of ego-wielding characters, each boxer comes to life with unique attributes and distinct personal style, including Romeo, a Latin lover known for his pelvic thrusts, and Molotov, an oversized Russian demolitions expert with a penchant for fighting dirty. Laugh out loud as you pummel your opponent with a barrage of blows to the face and watch in satisfaction as your progress is illustrated by real-time facial deformation. With haymakers, face shots and body blows, wait for the right moment to drop a super punch to make your presence known. Taunt your adversaries and flaunt your talent, by tying one hand behind your back to add ultimate humiliation to your bout. In FaceBreaker, it just feels good to rearrange your opponent's face
A very fun expirence of boxing
This is really a fun game especially if you have the playstation eye, you can scan your own face or anyone else to make many players, and go online. The graphics are cool, there is a low story line but high quality sound...GOOD game to have when bored buy it and a playstation eye. Laugh out loud as you pummel your opponent with a barrage of blows to the face and watch in satisfaction as your progress is illustrated by real-time facial deformation. With haymakers, face shots and body blows, wait for the right moment to drop a super punch to make your presence known. Taunt your adversaries and flaunt your talent, by tying one hand behind your back to add ultimate humiliation to your bout. In FaceBreaker, it just feels good to rearrange your opponent's face.
U Gotta B Kidding Me?
With boxing once again gaining popularity thanks to the debockle of horrendous circus act fights put on by mixed martial arts. U would think this two letter company who had a gem in fight night would stick 2 there guns and come with the most anticipated fight night to date with all the new boxing talent up and coming plus the reigning champs and vets still holdin it down like b-hop, Calzhage, Cotto, Mayweather etc. No some great marketer with a degree decides 2 go soft and drop fight night and all its potential glory for ready 2 rumble in-bred cousin facebreaker. C'mon two letter company you always give the consumer a lil here and there with madden that has fallen apart. Baseball is pewwy! Live is garbage and the one good sports title u had is dropped!!! Thanks 4 the memories U gotta B kidding me?
Face breaker??-Are you kidding me??
i'm a "huge" boxing fan and "face breaker" will NOT be on my wish list for games. the graphics look cartoonish, i'm guessing no REAL boxers will be in it. What a let-down "EA".CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO ROUND 4???
The first time I heard of this game, I saw it on E3 2008. So I took a shot at downloading the "FaceBreaker" demo yesterday on my PS3. From what I can tell, it's really fun. It has very great potential to become a great arcade type of (fictional) boxing. The controls work great, graphics are "cartoonishly" good, and gameplay is pretty smooth. (However the demo locks up at times during the loading screens before the fight). I don't suggest this to hardcore gamers who played "Ready to Rumble 2" (I never played it) and prefer that and bash this, but I suggest this to general/casual gamers who would want to increase their fun factors. I'm looking forward to getting this in September. one love everyone
WHAT THE HEC!!!!
This is pathetic, are you smoking? , I just seen the screen shots to this so called boxing game,and it's insulting to any real boxing fans, they should put a stop to the release of this poor of an excuse boxing game, it's not boxing it's a cartoon and bad at that, are you guys out of ideas? You have thousand of sports game of the same stuff!!!. And only one real boxing game since 2006 and this is the best you can do!! If you have no direction on what or how to make a boxing game please e-mail me and we can get together and I can give so many ideas, that you can make back to back boxing games for the next five yrs. Come on man throw us a bone.!!!!
Typical EAsports game
This game is a typical EAsports game. The controls are terrible, and of course there is no option to change them. There are three levels of difficulty and all of them seem the same. The computer performs moves that the player cannot so you can never get into a rythm. You win a match by knocking out the computer three times, if you can't after three rounds there is a sudden death round. This was a horrible idea because even if you knock the computer out twice he gets much harder to knock out in the sudden death round, to the point in some cases where you don't get a punch off even in EASY. You can imagine the frustration of knocking him down twice and not being touched by him till the sudden death round, then getting suddenly pummeled in the SD round. The customization of the created player is good but you can't change any of the fighting styles so the only thing that you can customize is the fighters appearance. There is absolutely no flow to this game. I've never played a boxing game where the dodge buttons are the same as the punch buttons. This makes it extremely hard to avoid punches while fighting since you hold the button down to dodge and tap it to throw a punch. Once again EA has made a game that looks good but plays terrible. This a good game if you just plan on fighting your friends the AI is horrible. Another EA stinker!
Games like this are a great throwback to the days where it wasn't all about simulations and real world game play. For my old school boxing fans, Im talking about PunchOut (the original), I'm talking about RingKing, I'm talking about Mike Tyson's Punch out, Im talking about Ready2Rumble. I personally love the big cartoonish style punching of a game like this and the personality behind the characters as you build through the ranks. I personally cannot wait on a game like this on a next gen. system -- it's going to be HOT and really, really fun.
Repetitive and Unappealing
I downloaded the demo for this game and it didn't impress me. At all. Now before I rant about the negatives I will point out that this game has a very good character editor. You can change EVERY feature of your player. But after that the game is all downhill. The game became repetitive after 10 min of play. You can high punch, low punch, and use a super hit. That's about it. Whatever you do NOT buy this game when there are incredible, ingenious games coming like Littlebigplanet. Please PS3 owners don't waste your money!!
Pretty Cool Game
I downloaded the demo of this game the other day from the PS Store. I turned out to be pretty cool. The graphics were really good, and so was the gameplay. There were a bunch of different game modes. There were also some cool features like Create-A-Boxer. You can make your own boxer and customize him/her. You can also you a USB Camera if you have one and upload your face and use that on your boxer. It's a REALLY fun game to play with your friends. I liked it. I'm going to get it when it comes out.
