The Fight: Lights Out
Excellent boxing trainer, and really fun. This has gotten a bad rap by the reviewers, but in my book I look forward going home to play this every night. Not only does it help get you in shape, but it is also great to let off some steam. This is a must have for anyone looking to mix excercise and gaming into one. A brilliant mix in my opinion.
Inherently faulty software
Perhaps it was the fact that I tried to play this on an SD TV, but the Graphics were pretty bad, very dark and very simple. The sound was also pretty bad. It made it feel more like a slap fight then a fist war. But that is not the biggest problem with this game. The big Problem is. You can not play it. Not at all. You can be a casual gamer or completely hardcore. Either way, you will never make it past the tutorial. The game tries to size you up bu having you do a series of movements and poses, it then takes a pic of the background. when you step back in frame, it attempts to find your head so it cam better track your movement and allow you to doge better and swing harder. In theory this is all great. In reality, it simply does not work. It can never find and track your head. I will even say ion the screen "head tracking terrible." When you finally try to play. your man moves like a string in the wind. You cant doge you cant ever get a punch in and if you do it feels like you just hit somebody with a wet noodle. I have attempted all forms of light and all distances from the camera that I had available to me, during both night and day. The game was still never once able to track me with any precision at all. I have checked and there is no update to fix this issue. Some people say that they do not have this problem. perhaps there homes are set up in a way where they have the perfect light and TV set up for this. If this game worked it would probably be great. For me it can never work. Do not buy this new. If you must try this out either rent it first or get it used, So you can return it the next day.
I was hesitant to buy this game at first, but am glad I did. The graphics are good, though the dark atmosphere may not click with some people, the controls are spot on, though it takes time to work on accuracy and power, and the difficulty varies in a good way making it easy to progress and always a challenge. I've heard a lot about head tracking problems, though it works fine with my screwed up PS Eye, and haven't encountered any flaws with it personally. Overall this game is a must have for any PS Move owner. Though people think Kinect and Wii are the same if not better(played both), this game actually requires effort, not just the ability to wave your arms in a general direction. Though Kinect is better for certain games, PS Move is perfectly designed for accurate fight simulations and shooters, though it may fall short in other game types. SIDE NOTE: Ive never sweated or felt so tired after playing a video game till I got this, which may discourage some, but encourage others
Not for people that wont last 10 secs in a fight..
Well let me start of by saying this game takes more than one game play session to really get the hang of it. When it comes down to the graphics, the grey, white, and black backround really add to the dark underground fight scene. The enhanced red of the blood really makes you want keep hitting that guy until he drops! and the injuries are very realistic...what i mean is, if you hit him in the right eye..YOU CUT the right eye. The training sessions make you feel and work like a real fighter coming up the ranks. As too the calibration issues that everyone is hating on...well it works perfectly on my ps3 and guess what kinect lovers...I CAN PLAY WITH THE LIGHTS OFF!!! dont get me wrong kinect is cool but it cant pull off this type of game and accuracy. As i said the game makes you sweat and throw real punches,,,you just cant soft jab, this isnt a wii....you have to put some force behind your punches!..MACHETE will remind you lol.And when u level up your fighters attributes he fights more precise,faster and stronger. The single player story does not have a final fantasy type ofstory so if u want that...dont buy it. The online multiplayer runs great and the opportunity to see other fighters fight is pretty cool, specially when u need a quick rest between fights. OVERALL i love THE FIGHT....its real, its a great work out, and GOD IT FEELS GOOD TO KNOCK PEOPLE OUT!!!!
After reading most of the reviews on here and not listening to other "experts" I picked up this game. Let me say I was very impressed. By the time I finished playing, I was drenched in sweat. The only reason this game doesn't get a 10 from me is because of the constant recalibration. It's great that they have a quick recalibration during fights by pressing O. Otherwise this game would be rated much lower. Yes the game is repetitive. IT'S A FIGHTING GAME!! What else do you expect other than get in and knock the other guy out? The visuals aren't on "Fight Night" level but they're nothing to sneeze at. For those who are saying this is just Wii Boxing obviously haven't even tried this. I have Wii Boxing and that has nothing on "The Fight"
If you can find a second motion controller to play this, (I had to order one from Sony) at least pick it up and try it. If anything, you will get a great workout that'll have you coming back to play again and again.
This Game requires 2 Motion controller (Mandatory)
Guys, Who are thinking to buy or pre order this game read this-->This particular move title requires 2 Motion controllers ( with light bulb on top) Navigation controller ( without light bulb on top) will not work as second controller. With 1 Motion controller you can fight with one arm. for 2 arms punching second motion controller is must. AI will not help as second arm like it does in sports champions. Hope this helps...
I haven't been a fan of these fighting games, until I saw this. I liked COD and other shooters and so do alot of other people. But I'm getting tired of that. This is a game where your actually interacting and experiencing the game. The other fighting games I didn't like because your just sitting there tapping buttons. And with PS move, your not just flicking the remote. You actually have to PUNCH using your whole body. This is a better start to fighting, and other types of games. You can't go wrong with PS move. If this isn't enough to make you want to, not play it, but EXPERIENCE it, look up a video. I can't wait to buy it.
It's a start
When I first played this game I was sure after months of waiting. I was disappointed in the beginning I kept getting knocked out, tracking was off & then some. That's till I started building up my created fighter's ability. See it starts you from the ground seriously your ability to fight very weak (all zero's) so you really have to work for make the best fighter. Now I see this is one of the best games yet for the playstation move. I like the online play but I guess then u can tell that there's not too many people with the move cause most of the time its a ghost town for online but that no fault of the games. But anyway there are so many fighters on the single player mode to beat down to make up for that. Plus you get a great workout. I play this everyday & it tires you out & make you sweat if you're not used to working out like me. Split screen mode w/ 2 players is a lot of fun. I can go on & on about this game. The only problem I've seen so far is head tracking isnt good due to lighting in the room but just turn it off u really dont need it anyway. But get this great game. I cant wait till the holidays my fighters almost there & I'm looking to beat up on my family lol.
I am a heavy 360 user and when I seen this game it made me want to switch to PS3 right away
As realistic as it can get in a video game
This game is awesome. It is because Its very realistic, sucks you in from the start, helps you lose weight and its fun. This game is very fun but the right set up is needed. You need to set the Eye camera as far as possible, you need room and perfect lightning, you can achieve "excellent" lightining rating by using 3-5 lamps and setting them all around your room. If you have a fan with a lighbulb mounted on the ceiling you only need 2 extra lamps. without the right set up this game will not perform to its limits. THIS GAME IS A WORKOUT, if you wanna lose weight and gain muscle buy this game. Its perfect cardio workout and will make you sweat alot. When you first start playing dont expect to win a fight even on the easiest opponent. You need to lose 10 times and earn some money and train in the gym to upgrade your stats. Dont give up the more you play the better the game gets. I reccomend this game to anyone that wants to lose weight and have lots of fun doing it.
