Fight Night Champion
Best Boxing game
This is the best Boxing game, no doubt. Has the best graphics, really good gameplay, and has its own little story! It's really nice - if you're a Boxing fan, get this. It has legacy mode, so it'll last a while - but, it does get repetitive after a while.
worst boxing mechanics ever
so, aside from the flashy graphics and the ability to string combos together, this has got to be my disappointment of the year. I was expecting a realistic boxing experience, and aside from the real boxers in the game, got a rock 'em sock'em bopper experience. No thought was put into realistic punching power, and the straight right reigns supreme in this game. It requires absolutely no real boxing skill or knowledge to play; armchair boxers will probably love it, but if you were looking for realism...Super Punch Out for the SNES was more realistic.
Don't be fooled by the pretty graphics...
Single player is okay. Build up a boxer and allocate experience to different attributes, move him up the ranks, and win a championship. AI is lame and can easily be overcome, even on the hardest difficulty setting; but the realistic appearance will distract you for a while with ooohs and ahhhs.
If you want a good boxing match online against another player, well...good luck. 90% of your fights will be against people that throw only power straight rights (no combos, no jabs, no boxing skill whatsoever). It sound like this would be easy to overcome, and in real life it certainly would be, but when it comes to this game the straight right seems to possess magic powers that will punch through combos and power shots, through blocks and leans, and land square without giving you a chance to recover...that's right; you're either down for the count, or just plain knocked out ("flash k.o"). There is no advantage to throwing combos, since that will tire your fighter and leave you open to the dreaded straight right. There is no need to move around the ring because a 275lb. fighter can easily catch a 175lb. fighter and land his straight right. Boxing game...no, not even close (aside from the boxers faces)...perfect one punch, go out and land it; my gosh, Super Punch Out was a more realistic boxing game than this.
If you're looking for quick and visually appealing boxing entertainment against a computer or friends, then this would be a good game for you; but if you're like me, and wanted an online boxing experience, you will be sorely disappointed by the one-punch mechanics this game rewards.
Greatest Game I have ever Played
Get this game. All around amazing. YOU MUST PLAY CHAMPION MODE. IT CAN GET FRUSTRATING, BUT IT FEELS LIKE YOU ARE THERE IN REAL LIFE. YOU CAN GET MAD, YOU FEEL HOW A REAL FIGHTER WOULD. It feels like a real life action movie. GET IT.
best boxing game ever and will be on top for a while cant wait to see where the franchise goes from this great installment
Best Fight Night Ever
Realastic grapichs and nice sounds and new controls best fight night ever played!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Only for harcore boxing fans
The graphics are great. The game modes which you can play aren't that great. Very limited in what you can do when it comes to the Legacy Mode. The best thing to do is the Champion Mode and it's one of those you play it once and that's it. Overall, for how much I payed for it, I was extremely disappointed.
The best fighting game of 2011!
I absolutley love this fight night, its the best fight night so far. It is always fun to play. And i enjoy being to download new charaters everyday! This game is almost perfect!
Fight night addiction!
I have not played a boxing game since the days of mike tyson on nintendo. So, a lot of years have gone by since dodging the massive uppercuts that would knock you on your ..... I have played the championship mode and also competed online. I have to say I thought the championship mode was really cool. I really think it could of been longer but overall it gets you hooked. The graphics are really good. This game isn't blood and gore. It does show cuts and bruises and awesome tattoo's. I have a high def TV and the graphics are great.
The game play in throwing punches and moving around the ring seem fairly real. The only issue is you get to pushing the buttons a bit to much and your boxer is throwing several punches after you move away. LOL.. Takes a while to learn how to throw just enough punches to not waste your energy.
If you like to play sporting events.. I have to say this game is addicting. I have a hard time putting the control down. I play for endless hours and I am 40 yrs old.. I will say it does take a while to learn how to block and learn just how to keep your stamina up. Try different things and you will learn just how to box like a champion. I highly recommend this game. Once you feel you have the goods, jump online and try your skills there. Good luck....
So far best boxing game out there...for now.
The only problem is the amount of internet needed for the game. Another is your not able to fight in the prison. I do like how they have advanced settings now. The legacy mode is also more advansed. I think if you have played other fight nights before this one than you will love this version.
