Summary: I love Fight Night, I have been religiously playing Fight Night since it was Knockout Kings in 1998 on the PSX. Well the game is good, don't get me wrong, it has improvements to Fight Night Round 2, but it also dropped the ball badly. First I didn't get this game to choose two fighters and go toe-to-toe, I bought this for the Career, and the Career was a thing of beauty in Round 2 or as close to as I had seen at that point.
Summary: Arrived quickly and in good condition. Excellent game, and was one of the few games that I played and beat all the way through on PS2. However, if you have an Xbox 360, get that version instead, the graphics are obviously better.
Summary: Let me just say this game is nothing short of fantastic. The gameplay is smooth, controls are nice, graphics are great, and even the commentary is decent in this game. Between fights you manually heal your cuts, which is cool. Your trainer will give you pep talks specific to your situation. Example: "You really need to block that right eye, or the ref is going to stop the fight, that cut is awful." The controls are beautiful.
Summary: This game tops Fight Night 2004, and in turn it beats out the great Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing from a long time ago. (Of note, I didn't much care for Fight Night Round 2; in my opinion it had too much of a reliance on haymakers and not enough of a reliance on boxing.) Pros: - This game is fun! - The play control is good. - This game has a lot of replay value. - The play by play commentator is actually pretty decent.
Conclusion: Well for a start, the Music in this game Consists of Mostly American Rap Music & Tunes, so if you like that then you are going to love them alot, Next up we have a Quick Fight Option, to choose your Fighter and then to Slog it out with the Computers AI which is very Clever, i found this game easy to pick up & Play, but hard to Master, but once you start playing this, you will be hooked (Excuse the Pun), The Replays could have been better, but that is the Only thing i...
Summary: It sounds like to many people got carried away with the Haymaker happy FN Round 2. In that game you simply chased your opponent around the ring with your haymaker cocked and ready for firing. (that was not boxing, it was more a special move like in Street fighter of something). Sure Round 3 has it's issues, but overall this is what boxing should be.
