Summary: After years of playing the Knockout Kings franchise, I was wondering what was so different with Fight Night 2004. The first thing I noticed was the controls. The default controls has the way you throw punches used by the right analog stick. In order to throw straight punches, you just flick it diagonally up & left or right, to throw hooks, you move the analog stick left or right, then arc it upward.
Conclusion: The game has a very good concept with realistic characters and realistic moves, however, the controls and recoveries drag down the game to a very complicated and difficult game in which only hardcore gamers would even try to play.When a player is knocked down, it is so difficult to recover, most gamers will stay down in the very first round in their very first knock down.
This was the fist in the greatest boxing genre, narrowly misses out on 4 stars

Excerpt: When I had played boxing games in the past hey had all been woefully short of something that I would consider a good try at recreating the sport. They have either been too difficult to play (to recreate all the diffirent punches when you wantedthem to be thrown) or they were just aiming to be just plain silly, like rady to rumble. Playability- But in this game EA Sports had cracked it. Firstly the gameply is masively improved.
Not a bad boxing game but not as good as knockout kings

Excerpt: I actually obtained this game through winning a competition in the kellogs frosties and was really excited about this win because I had played the excellent knock out songs and envisaged a game with a similar control system and of course souped up graphics. The game has 2 main modes of play, you can either fight an exhibition match or alternatively you can compete in the tournaments.

Summary: That EA sports have come up with a good little game here is beyond doubt. The control system feels innovative and lends the game a feeling of skill and consideration lacking from many fighting games. Just plough in and the ability to block, swerve and counter means that you just get pummelled. The use of Roy Jones Jr gives the game an edge of authority that is lacking from many EA games. Being able to pitch old masters against each other is also interesting.
Summary: I'm an avid fan of boxing and used to follow the Knockout Kings titles right from through from PS1 to PS2. I waited with baited breath for this game but have found it terribly dissapointing. Below are the games Good/Bad points Good Points: Great Graphics Roy Jones Jnr Decent 'Create a Boxer' Its another Boxing title Decent career mode Bad Points: Lack of Recognised Boxers (No Tua, Klitschko, etc) Generic Boxers all look the same (only minor chnges, like skin tone or hair...
Summary: Freigegeben ist das Spiel ab 6 Jahren. Das passt schon! Ähnlich realistisch spielt sich das Spiel auch. Zwar sind die Bewegungen und Schlagabtäusche schon ganz nett, aber sehr unsinnig. In den Kämpfen wird auch nicht so gewertet, wie man es vom (Profi)-Boxen kennt. Wer hier härtere Treffer austeilt, liegt auch vorne...wenn man im Trefferverhältnis gar 3:1 oder 4:1 vorne liegt, bedeutet das nicht, dass man auch nur eine einzige Runde gewinnt.
Pros: lustiger Spass der einem zum Schwitzen bringt
Cons: kein Realitätsanspruch Technik und Software versagen
