Fight Night Round 4

Strategy Informer
6 December 2009
  • Conclusion: But as we said earlier, the reason why we chose to focus on the negatives is because the positives are so good and anything that breaks that up feels ten times worse than it probably is. Fight Night Round 4 is a must for any sports enthusiast. The graphics are phenomenal, the soundtrack works perfectly, the in-game commentary is relaxed and realistic and the longevity and value-for-money charts are through the roof thanks to the myriad of boxers, weight classes and of...

  • Summary: No matter how many versions I play, I always go through the same learning curve with Fight Night. I come in a rookie hothead, trying to slug it out with superior competition, and end up getting my ass whooped. Then, I settle down and realize that Fight Night is the greatest boxing series ever because it forces you to actually learn the sport. Round 4 does what I thought impossible: It improves the basic gameplay in significant ways.

Fight Night Round 4 Review

VideoGamer.com
24 November 2009
  • Excerpt: When it comes to beat 'em ups I'm not an expert. I can throw a dragon punch and make Blanka electrocute people, but that's more or less it. Boxing games are different though. For whatever reason a boxing match feels more tactical - it's a sport not a video game. Of course, hardcore Street Fighter fans will argue that their game is far more tactical, but in Fight Night Round 4 one wrong move can see your fully fit brawler hitting the canvas as if he's just been sniped...

Fight Night Round 4 Review (PS3)

About.com
4 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Fight Night Round 4 takes the winning formula of its predecessor and builds a great sequel upon it. Faster, harder hitting, and prettier, Fight Night Round 4 is a real contender. But, like all great fighters, it has a couple of week points. Luckily Fight Night Round 4 hits hard enough in all other areas to more than compensate.
  • Pros: Fast Paced Fighting, Superb Graphics, Visceral Physics, You Practically Feel the Punches, Excellent Online Gameplay, Fast Paced Fighting, Superb Graphics, Visceral Physics, You Practically Feel the Punches, Excellent Online Gameplay
  • Cons: AI Fights Slow, Legacy Career Mode Seems Stacked Against You, AI Fights Slow, Legacy Career Mode Seems Stacked Against You

Round 4 of EA's Boxing Franchise Does More of the Same Really Well

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Add boxing intricacies to make the franchise more of a boxing game and less of a fighting game Graphics: The bloody spray and meaty, pounding body punches make this title gruesome without gore Sound: Teddy Atlus provides the best color commentary I've ever heard in a sports game. I was still hearing new bits many fights in Playability: Having shortcuts for most body punches is a godsend.

  • Excerpt: EA, and by extension EA Sports, can really feel proud of their accomplishment in Fight Night Round 4. While they could have simply rested on their laurels, safe in the knowledge that their series is the undisputed, unchallenged king of the boxing game genre, EA have come out swinging with a new iteration of Fight Night, with all new features, upped visual quality and a polished presentation that adds up to what is undeniably the greatest entry to the series yet.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Friday Night Fight Round 3 was the best Boxing game ever released on any videogame console. The graphics were unbelievable, the gameplay was engaging and the presentation was just perfect. Rarely do people go out and buy a new console just for a sports game, but that is exactly what that game did a few years ago. The title was one of the few sports games to go platinum as well.
