Rated 10 out of 10 by awsome 5678 fun takes time to learn controls
Fight Night Round 4 is a very entertaining game. It has gorgeous graphics. Great player variety and creator. You can see many details in the boxers when their fighting or resting. It is an extemely well detailed game. You can see sweat and blood fly in the directions that you it. The controls take some getting use to, but once you do the game is a blast. Dont be fooled by the people who look down on it. It's actually better. It sort of forces you to fight like a real boxer. It will make use doges and counter punches more than just punching and punching. Its more realistic. Im actually a shooter fan, but this game would be fun for anyone especially playing against friends. You can also custimize your own character to the fullest. Homestate, weight, height, name, nickname, style, shorts, gloves, shoes, the clothes include many brand names. Point being, this game will amaze you. Its fun, you wont get bored with it fighting with gorgeous graphics and many moves and fighting styles. Get it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MaCK Slim The best Fight Night so far
Well,its finally here and its just what E3 said it would be.First off, if you bought punchout for the WII then trade that and any other game you have to pick up FNR4.Im giving it a perfect 10 for many reasons,too many to name but can you say Iron Mike?When you first start the game im almost positive that any real boxing fan will jump to see Tyson back in action along with Ali,Jones Jr,Whitaker and Forman just to name a very small few.The layout to FNR4 is upgraded by 100 percent,Legacy Mode, which is also tweaked to the max allows you to schedule your fights and pick how close or far the bout day will begin allowing your boxer to get enough rest and the proper training you need to make your opponent taste canvas.Another reason to get the great game is online title fights.Keep track of your boxer online and fight your way to a belt with people all over the world versus just the computer.If thats not enough to encourage you to pick up FNR4 then you might not be a boxing fan after all.
Rated 0 out of 10 by CWags I use the stick and it still is garbage
I dont care about the buttons being removed cuase i use the stick. I played this demo with 4 of my friends and only one is still saying he is gonna get it. This game reminds me of Round 1. Round 1 was fun when it was the first but now that we have had the others i bet you dont play it. The graphics are good if not a little cartoonish on some characters, maybe its just me but in the demo their gloves seemed a bit to big to be proporsional. I dont like the stick on this round. It seems to have reverted back to the round 1 slugfest that we all started with. Maybe Round 3 wasnt the most realistic with the pary system but at least it was tactical and took some skill. It seems to fast to be realistic. I dont like the blocking or parrying in this game, it just doesnt feel right. Im gonna have to pass on this round and hope that they come out with a Round 5 quick. In the meantime UFC Undisputed is the way to go in my opnion. And im gonna keep round 3 till round 5.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Poetic Skillz Unfortunately I'm sad to say FNR4 dissapoints me!
I had the chance to play the demo yesterday, and in all honesty I was so excited to get my hands on it, and I even blew off Undisputed 2009 so that I can afford Fight Night. It wasn't the graphics or gameplay that disappointed me, no, the graphics are beautiful. The dynamics of in close fighting and staying on the outside and countering was awesome. But it's the joystick configuration that totally blew it for me! What the heck, EA took away the ability to change configuration so that you use the buttons instead of the joystick! I only like using the joystick for haymakers, but now the new total punch control ruin what could have been a great game. You can have all the great aspects of the game, but if the configuration isn't consumer friendly, it just wont work! I know for a fact that if the full game doesn't have a button option, I'm not going to purchase it. Some people might like using the stick for punching, but I absolutely hate it. Please EA add the option to change the configuration, if not, your not getting my ** bucks!
Rated 0 out of 10 What??
Seriously, i am surprised to read so many people bad mouthing this game from a demo. Those of you who say that this game is a step backwards are way out of line. If you thought round 3 was better than this i feel sorry for you. Most of you are upset about buttons. So what. Try something new. I will say that this new Engine they have takes some getting used to, took me a while to start getting a feel for the block and counter systems, but i have to tell you i think its ten times better than standing there blocking and loading up a heavy punch. It just doesn't happen like that in boxing. The graphics are amazing, some of the best out there. I have no idea where people are coming up with this cartoon stuff, punch out on the wii is cartoony. Now obviously this game is not for everyone, this time around its going to take some more getting used to. I def. don't want a repeat of round 3 where i can play on the hardest difficulty setting and still knock the top boxers out in the 1st round. I think this one is going to give me my money's worth and then some.

People who give this game bad reviews are just mad because they are not good at it so ignore the bad reviews. First I'm gonna say that this game is a little tricky for those who are used to using the baby buttons which are x,a.b.and y. I'm not quite sure if you can change the controls on this or you can only use the right analog stick. Personally i used the right analog stick for a long as i remember. I find it a challenge and, all the button jammers and cheaters are left in the cold The game is a little tricky and takes some practice but it is nowhere near as hard as Undisputed. This game is extremely realistic and has amazing graphics. The best Fight Night to date. This game has it all even an online championship. There is too much good to mention the game is great, buy it. Oh by the way there is a typo in the instruction manual look at page 3 according to the manual Slickster style gives you a food speed stat boost.
Rated 10 out of 10 by EazyDuzIt Simply Amazing.
To start off I'll start by saying this game is much better than Fight Night Round 3 in every way, graphics, sounds,gameplay,challenge,and online expirience. First off this game has incredible graphics, with real time sweat thats never the same thing, and real time muscle flex so the muscles look diffrent with every punch (realistic to the fullest) Second, the controls are a bit tricky to master but once you get the hang of them its quite simple. No longer will you have to put up with buttom mashers and heymaker spamming in multiplayer now the game actually takes some skill to play. Legacy mode gives plenty of challenging fights specially during championship defence fights. The only thing I found a bit annoying about this game is the commentators, they have a very limited speech lines, like in some fights you will hear them repeat the same thing about three times, but other than that, this game is simply flawless.

OK, most people thought of this game as another boxing game but its not. its more than that, it is revolutionary. first the game play, is very well presented and is just so much fun. the quick matches are amazing and at times very difficult. the AI catches on to your strategy and can KO you at any time when your in this position. many times i found myself trying to make new ways to catch the computer and win. so the game play never gets old. now the multiplayer, if you decide to go straight to online, not only will you get destroyed you will waste your time trying. the people online are very experienced generally. now if you get better and get a strategy you'll do better maybe. lastly the legacy mode or carer mode. it is fun of course and is different from fnr3. the game play changed and you get more well ill say objectives. i wont spoil it either so yea. in conclusion fight night round four is defiantly worth getting.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GTA's #1 fan Excellent
Excellent Game 10x Better than Fight Night Round 3. Everything is fantastic. I played on the G.O.A.T. difficulty (The Hardest difficulty In the game). And let me tell you it was not the difficulty where you can say that your that good to beat an opponent real quick. No it was a real top of the line experience I went into the fifteenth round got knocked twice but knocked my opponent down twice and I barely even won I won by decision. If you got another boxing game (Punchout, Facebreaker, or even Prize Fighter ,etc.) trade them in get some money or discount and buy this game I guarantee you'll love the game. Here's why The controls are easy to use there is no more button clicking for punches. Everything from sound, statistics, and Team/player variety are all great and very accurate. And Every thing else from Graphics to the camera angle are great. But the interface runs smoothly. So Go And Get This Great Games!
Rated 7 out of 10 by Truth-Teller OKAY IF YOU ARE A DIEHARD OR HAVE TIME
The game is okay if you can't get enough of Boxing, but if you are looking to spend money wisely on the best game available or sports game available, this is not it. My biggest gripe is that every match is the same. EA lied once again when they said styles make fights. The footspeed is too slow so quickness does not matter. It's basically a stand in the middle of the ring spam jabs or whatever punch is the easiest for you to master affair. Not realistic IMO. Some people say it gets better when you change the footspeed with the slider, which brings the biggest problem into question. If you can change everything else why not give the ability to button punch? Even with the flaws the game is worth renting and buying if you love it, but the best sports game of the year so far goes to MLB The Show 09. It's unfortunate that us XBOX 360 owners cant enjoy it fulltime.
