Excerpt: Half an hour into Sony's The Fight: Light's Out, and I'm sprawled on the office sofa, mopping sweat from my forehead and inhaling as much Ventolin as my lungs will allow. Whilst it's embarrassing to admit, this is probably the most exercise I've done all year.
Excerpt: Everyone’s heard of Fight Club and everyone has at one time or another thought, “Hell, I could do that!” Well now it’s time to put your money to where your mouth’s at with The Fight, a Playstation 3 Move title, where your move controllers are your fists and your pride is about to be tested once and...
Excerpt: this is an awesome game! At the beggining you want to smash your controllers into the screen and flail your arms in anger, but once you actually train and get good it is so much fun to beat up on the people. Not for religious gamers.
Excerpt: Built to take advantage of the Playstation Eye as well as the Playstation Move, The Fight: Lights Out is supposed to be a gritty take on street fighting, likely similar to Fighters Unleashed using the Microsoft Kinect.

Summary: Sony's take on motion-controlled brawling delivers an edgy presentation and satisfying fisticuffs…when they work. Unfortunately, touchy controls keep The Fight: Lights Out from being little more than a lightweight contender.
Pros: Fighting feels great...when it works, Gritty presentation kicks cute boxing games in the groin, Danny Trejo brings a welcomed B-Movie vibe
Cons: Mechanics are unreliable, unintuitive, The Move isn't always responsive, Stripped down career mode
