Conclusion: Weaknesses: 1. Single Player only 2. Framerate drops at a couple particular points due to immense amounts going on. (didn't hurt anything, IMO) 3. Aside from choosing how to develop characters, it is one dimensional in that you just destroy everything all the time.(There are timed levels that are more about speed and accuracy) 4. Game defaults to english voice when the subtitling with Japanese voice is far better sounding and sets the mood much more. 5.
Summary: This game is great from a technical point of view. If you are not familiar with boxing strategy, chances are you will have problems palying at the higher difficulty levels. Just as real boxers have their individual styles and strategies that set them apart from others, you too must develop your own style and stick with it. But, you must also learn to adapt to the fighting style of your opponent. The music absolutely sucks for this game.
Summary: i'm loving this game. i had knockout kings for the 64 so i'm familiar w/the button mashing style of fighting games. punch, punch, punch. there is so much more strategy to fight night. i feel like the only thing holding me back is my own lack of skills. the punching system is great when you get used to it. also, as you fight different boxers you quickly (and painfully) learn that you have to adapt your style to your opponents'. i would highly recommend it.
Summary: Fight night 2004 gives you a total punch control system. Witch is an awsome experience because you actually feel like your really beating up your fighter. For example if you push the right thumb stick right and up, you give your opponent a right hook. If u push the right thumb stick down and slide it up to the left you do a left uppercut. You will have to try it for your self.
Summary: Overall I have to say that I love this game. It's easily the best boxing game I've ever played. That doesn't mean that there's not things that could be better. Pros: The graphics are very well done. The motions of the boxers are great and the venues look good. The sound is well done with some very realistic punching and crowd sounds.
Conclusion: I think it is great fun. gameplay: the gameplay is very fluent and realistic, but it is thrue you have to get used to the total punch control. What I also like very much is the very deep create a boxer. Graphics: the graphics are very sharp, you can recognise every boxer just by his body and the face is even better. and the stadiums look very good too. Audio: the music is good, but becomes boring after a while.
Summary: This is game is very exciting and fun to play, it takes a little getting used to because of the controls, and the way things have changed since Knockout Kings. But it very fun and a challenge to play the computer also, while building your character. Just one other thing, this game is not Xbox live so i dont know why you have it under the online games.
Summary: I rented this game the other night and I cannot put it down. There are so many features that make this game a great boxing game. It is no longer a "button-masher", as you need precise control with the innovative punch control. You need the finesse to turn the knob to coordinate specific attacks of jabs, uppercuts and hooks. It takes some time to get used to, but once you do, it creates a better playing experience.
Summary: The graphics are amazing and the cuts and bruses really show up. They have great names in box like Ali, Sugar ray leonard, and since I am from Philly BERNARD HOPKINS AND JOE FRAZIER. Great game play. Career is fun but once you knock down someone they get up in a 8 count. If you do it again they get back up.
Summary: The controls are awesome!!! The total control things works extremely well. I like it much much more than other boxing games where it is just a whole bunch of button mashing. The graphics are good. It's fun to compare your face with your opponents face after each round. I also like it when the opponent is about to be knocked down and you push him up against the ropes. When you finally get the punch that knocks him down, the ropes support him so he stays up for a while.
