Conclusion: I have been a huge fan of the EA Sports series of boxing games since Knockout Kings 2000 on the PS1 and I have watched it evolve with sheer delight into the magnificent series that is Fight Night. When I first heard about the development of Fight Night Round 3 I could barely contain my excitement, however, my spirits were severely dampened when it appeared that it would be a 360/PS2 only release.
Summary: Fight Night 3 is the first boxing game I've ever bought. The first time I played it i went straight onto the Career mode. I thoght 'Wow this is great!' but the career mode is very, very repetitive, you start of as an ameteur boxer and make your way to be the next champion. It's the same after every fight - Sing contract, Train and then fight. Althogh the career mode lacks, the overall game play is really good - loads of different types of hits (including illeagal blows!
Summary: ... It's never been possible before either. I love boxing, and I love good boxing games. This is a good boxing game. It's not great, and the inclusion of the online multiplayer means EA has seriously neglected the single player mode, so if you don't have Xbox Live don't update your Fight Night round 2 to this, you'll be dissapointed. If you do have Xbox Live, then come on into the ring, get this game and get online.
