Excerpt: It’s fair to say that the first version of Fight Night on the new generation machines really showed what these machines could do graphically.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is a boxing game that looks ultra realistic. Along with violence that is part of violence and bit of blood, this boxing sim contains scantily-dressed women and some off-color lyrics in a few of ths rap/hip-hop songs.
Conclusion: Fight Night Round 4 is one of those sports games
that's hard to put down. Once you learn the
swinging mechanics, you just want to keep the
marathon going. It's nice that EA is working on
a (face-button) patch to get the rest of its
loyal fans back on track.
Conclusion: Overall this is a very good game with great graphics and gameplay, and much improvement on fight night round 3. pros:- great graphics good solid flowing gameplay with no lag on single player. ability to change boxing gear including shorts, gloves, boots, robes etc.
Excerpt: When it comes to beat 'em ups I'm not an expert. I can throw a dragon punch and make Blanka electrocute people, but that's more or less it. Boxing games are different though. For whatever reason a boxing match feels more tactical - it's a sport not a video game.
Excerpt: In reality, boxing is a highly methodical sport, requiring the ability to think tactically under immense pressure and not forget the threat of your opponent’s massive fists ready to machine gun your face into a bloody pulp. Boxing games on the other hand are largely the opposite.
Summary: It seems to have taken an eternity for " Fight Night Round 4 " to be released and from the outset you can see the time and effort which has been put into making the game look and play as good as it does. Having said this it is by no means perfect and there are still many areas for improvement.
