Conclusion: Même si le concept paraît franchement plaisant, The Fight demeure assez inconfortable à pratiquer. Les mouvements sont retranscrits dans la quasi-totalité des cas sans temps de latence, mais nous constatons que la prise en main reste assez peu évidente lors des premières heures. Aussi, de nombreux joueurs trouveront le gameplay complètement raté, faute à l'absence d'entraînement à maîtriser les différentes subtilités qui s'enrichissent au fil du jeu.
Pros: Bonne détection des mouvements, De nombreuses prises, La gestion de l'endurance, des blessures et de la réputation, La présence de Danny Trejo
Cons: Le combiné PS Move / manette PS3 à oublier, Impossible de bouger les pieds, Pas d'impression d'impact, Doublage français médiocre, Réalisation graphique générique
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. If the games industry persists in its obsession with motion titles, editors of fine publications such as this site are going to have to start including fitness tests in their interviews for new writers.
Excerpt: There's a lot of guilty pleasure to be had from watching the lowlifes in The Fight: Lights Out recoil from the impact of a mighty blow straight to the forehead, but it's also a lot of hard work. Sweat and soreness are practically guaranteed thanks to the game's admirable re-creation of basic brawling, forcing you to deliver your punches with force instead of fluff to make any decent contact.
Pros: Danny Trejo is a fitting mentor, Punching dudes in the face is fun
Cons: Controls need constant recalibration, Fails to properly recognize special moves, Nonexistent storyline, Dull and dark graphics
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: 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 for all.
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. The presentation is highlighted by the inclusion of Danny Trejo to narrate the game as well as run you through a series of fight training tutorials. The videos have a ridiculous Grindhouse feel and are sadly hilarious while meant to be serious.
Conclusion: Don't take a less-than-great score for The Fight: Lights Out as a slight against the overall product. Though there isn't enough here to warrant the purchase price (a PSN release would have been fine, really), but in short bursts it's a blast.
Excerpt: Long have I yearned for a game that allows me to enter a virtual world and directly interact with that imagined space through the use of nothing more than my own body movements. This desire began many years ago after watching a TV segment where I witnessed two people ‘playing’ the original Mortal Kombat (the hot game of the day) using virtual reality equipment.
