Summary: I just bought it and it could be better in a lot of ways it is not fight night but better career mode .The fights are more sim for the price you cant complain give it some time and learn the control's and box .it is not like us boxing fans have a lot of games to choose from these days
Summary: Picked this game up after playing Fight Night Champion for a few months, cant say this is better then fight night, the game is fun..the presentation is what really makes this game fun, the gameplay is sub-par but its still fairly fun and can be played through career mode with a meaning, all in all for under 10 bucks this is a good buy and even better buy if you're a boxing fan and like going round to round beating down opponents
Ok game. Kind of fun, but could have been a lot more.

Summary: The in ring gameplay is O.K., but once you figure it out the game is VERY easy. In my last 10 fights I never even got knocked down. Learn to block and dodge, then counter, and unleash when your opponent is out of stamina. That's how I beat every fighter. The special punches are pretty sick, and did save me a couple of times. PROBLEMS: Between each fight, you have to decide to train or do do some photo op and increase your media standing.
Summary: Let me just say that I love boxing and am a sucker for any and all boxing games - from Mike Tyson Punch-Out (NES) to Evander Holifield "Real Deal" boxing which is probably my all-time favorite (Sega Genesis) to all of the Knockout Kings (PS1) to all of the Fight Nights - Round 2 was my favorite - (PS2/Xbox 360)to this game. When I opened it up, created my fighter, and "Rocky Balboa" lost his first 5 fights (in career) I was ready to put a spike through it.
Summary: this game is absolutely Beautiful...and not because of the Fighting alone..but because of the Excellently done Career Mode. it is simular to Def Jam Icon or the Superstar mode in Madden. it makes you WANTT to progress through the game just to see what happens next...as you choose rather to train or spend time doing various other recreational activites with other friends or girlfriends...and the storyline really does keep you immersed in it..
