Summary: The game play is wonderful. There are many different types of fighting styles. The create a boxer mode has improved. However, I would still like a little more detail for arm length and body type. The career mode is very boring and repeats itself. There just is not much there to work with. I would also love to see more fighters. I know that it is hard but having Tyson, Foreman, Mayweather, and Holmes would be great.
Summary: I haven't played boxing games since Mike Tyson's PunchOut and 4D Boxing, but after a few rounds, I was right back into the swing of things with this game. The control in the game is top-notch, if even too sensitive for my casual capabilities. I have really enjoyed the career mode, although the myriad "equipment" upgrades can be overwhelming and confusing. A few more options for automation in the non-boxing portions of the game would serve my tastes well.
Summary: I read all the reviews of this game and was a little hesitant to pick up a copy. I loved the 2nd fight night and I have played it backwards and forwards. I am really not into sports games but I really enjoy the boxing games out there. This one is by far one of the best I have played. I think there are some parts to it that could have been better, but that is usually the case with every game. If you liked the 2nd game you should like this one.
Summary: We love this game, playing alone or with friends it's full of action, you really get into the fights and has a lot of boxers for each category, career mode very detailed. A must-have game. Just the details of the crowd are very poor, but action on the ring is very reallistic.
Summary: The first thing I noticed was the slower gameplay, now the only slow punches are the haymaker, stun and flash punches. Now it was very easy to defeat an opponent in FNR2, you just nock the s#@t out of him with haymakers, this game requires a little more skill. You can throw one punch to put your opponent in the KO moment(or on the canvass) but it has to be executed perfectly or else it's your ass.
Summary: This game is very similar to FN2. the difference is in a new Haymaker mode which isn't all that great and hard to control, and a career mode that no longer shows rankings but rather loosely organized fights were you "sign" a "contract." to fight an opponent. Over all pretty similar to FN2. And for the idiot below; "Brock" is Calvin Brock a ranked heavyweight you bleeping genius. A current pro fighter.
Excerpt: Perhaps its quite realistic, but it doesn't beat the arcade fun of "Ready 2 Rumble". The controls can be quite awkward and there seems to be quite a delay when pushing a control to punch. Graphically its not bad, but I think we'll see some big improvements with the PS3 versions of the boxing games.
