Manufacturer's Description

If you think about it, the noble sport of boxing is the perfect basis for a videogame: it’s thrilling to watch but, in real life, painful to practise. And one franchise towers over the boxing games genre like Muhammad Ali in his prime: Fight Night. And now Fight Night Champion promises to be the franchise’s finest moment – its Thrilla in Manila or Rumble in the Jungle. Hence the change in naming convention: coming after Fight Night Round 4, you would have expected it to be called Round 5.

For Fight Night Champion to represent a quantum leap over Round 4 is a major achievement in itself: Round 4 stunned everyone with its astonishing level of graphical realism. Champion builds on that to such an extent it will surely be hailed as the most realistic-looking sports sim ever, adding a dynamic blood system (which could leave the ring awash after a particularly brutal bout), plus even more accurate bruising and body-deformation systems.

Champion Mode

One huge all-new feature is Champion Mode: a full story mode, in which you take control of raw but talented middleweight Andre Bishop and guide him through a career, which even encompasses prison-brawling and bare-knuckle fighting, alongside Bishop’s progression through the boxing ranks. Champion Mode was inspired by classic boxing movies, and adds a whole new cinematic angle to the Fight night blueprint.

Full-Spectrum Punch Control

Fight Night Champion also boasts a completely revamped control system, which developer EA Canada has dubbed, rather grandiosely, Full Spectrum Punch Control. Fiendishly clever, it has been designed both to make the game more accessible for novices and to let more experienced gamers exercise incredibly fine control over their punching. Basically, Full Spectrum Punch Control maps punching to the right analogue stick (with boxer movement mapped to the left stick). So, if you move the right stick to the right, your boxer will unleash a right-handed punch, and if you move it to the left, he will punch with his left. The angle you choose determines the type of punch: flicking upwards will launch a straight punch, to the side a hooking punch and downwards an uppercut – with a full spectrum of intermediate punches in between, hence the name.

If you don’t fancy the sound of that, you’ll still be able to use the face buttons to punch: you can choose from a number of controller maps. Also, this time around, Fight Night Champion makes use of a heavy-punch-modifier, and lets you perform stepping punches, where you move in towards your opponent (which adds power, but are easier to block). The game has a completely new reflexive blocking system, and it will be important to master subtle techniques such as weaving, stepping and ducking. Fight Night Champion takes account of fatigue much more realistically than its predecessors: punches thrown when fatigued even have different animations.

Legacy Mode and Online Gyms

Legacy Mode, in time-honoured Fight Night fashion, lets you generate a boxer, take on champion boxers of yore and work him up through the ranks, both offline and online. Another cool feature is Online Gyms which, as the name suggests, lets you create an online gym in which you can slug it out with your mates to decide who is top dog. And if you reckon you can handle it, you can take on other people’s Online Gyms via so-called Rivalry Challenges. One of the joys of your Online Gym is that you can make the rules – so you’ll be able to fight 15-round bouts or change the round length if you feel that way inclined.

There’s not even a shadow of doubt that Fight Night Champion will come closer to capturing the experience of being a boxer than any game before it. Indeed, it may well prove to be the most realistic sports game ever, bar none. If you’re a true lover of the pugilistic arts, then it’s the game you’ve been waiting for all your life.

4.0 out of 5 stars UPDATED: Great Game - Same Old EA 11 July 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was surprised to see this game released fairly rapidly following Fight Night Round 4 usually there is a large gap between these titles but it is clear to see its becoming a popular title similar to how the UFC game took off for both fans and newcomers alike.

Not much has changed in terms of visuals from Round 4 everything looks and feels very similar the audio is also to my knowledge largely unchanged. The first thing you will notice is the button scheme has changed from the enforced right analogue stick to the option between the right stick and the buttons these can also be switched between during gameplay which is a handy touch as sometimes using the right stick didn't seem to do the trick and when I switched to the buttons I was doing better and vice versa. The roster is updated most notably David Haye now makes the cut and it keeps all the faces from previous titles including firm favourites Lennox Lewis, Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali.

The largest addition to the game is the Champion Story mode. You take control of a fictional character called Andre Bishop for me this was worrying. In sports games I am not a fan of being forced to take control of a set character I'd prefer to make my own. The story line is more in tune with an over the top Wrestling script I won't spoil the plot but it is more along those lines than boxing, all of the characters in the Champion Mode are also fictional. That said it is still a breath of fresh air from Legacy Mode which can become quite stale after a while. My biggest criticism is the way the story line is carried out, most matches you will have to fight with a handicap i.e you will start with a large cut to the head you must defend or a broken arm you can't use and all of this while challenging leads to a fairly frustrating time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good...but could be better 11 Mar 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In terms of boxing games, and possibly fighting games as a whole, EA have shown themselves to be the leaders. However, you cant help but feeling that there are a few fundamental flaws with this game despite its lashings of polish.

Graphically the game is outstanding; fighters go from an incredible likeness of their real life counterparts, to glistening with sweat and breathing heavily. Though the real glory of the graphics come from the injuries - fighters faces go from welted to unrecognisable depending on the punishment, and cuts start off as a small trickle before progressing to gashes that realistically splatter the opponent and stain the ring and shorts.

The gameplay is excellent also - the new control system is incredibly intuitive and slick. Fighter's styles are also enacted brilliantly; Ali will counter punch you and have you chase him for rounds before taking you out; Tyson will charge in and attempt to dismantle you; Jake LaMotta will put you against the ropes and smash your ribs in...the list goes on.

Online Mode is very good and where the real bulk of your playing time will likely be spent.

The Champion mode is interesting but extremely flawed. You follow the surprisingly compelling story of the career of Andre Ward; who inevitably has an arch nemesis and seedy promoter to overcome. But the interesting story is where this mode's attributes end. The entire mode is completely scripted, often serving to only infuriate the player and leave you wondering "When would this ever happen?" Also, your actions appear to have no effect on Andre or his story. Another problem is its longevity - approximately 6 hours of game time.

Legacy mode is the same as it has always been, arguably with a coat of paint.

5.0 out of 5 stars fight night is a champion 9 Mar 2011
By bubba74
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
having played on the previous fight night games i have to say they have improved game on game, this is no different
the graphics are second to none (as most EA sports games are) the gameplay is good weather you just want to use the fight now facility or create a boxer of your own in the leagcy mode to battle your way up and become the GOAT the controls are very good and not as "pausey" on the punches thrown (as i said earlier this title improves game on game) i must admit i like using the buttons to throw punches and combos as well as the shot stick. and included in this game there is the new champion mode which is very much like a movie of a young boxer who has ups and downs during his firstly amature career then his professional at (mostly) the hands of a crooked promoter, you have to overcome certain scenarios and become heavyweight champion of the world which is great fun and you feel well pleased when you achive it. also the training games are very good and now the sparring has defencive drills aswell which is a welcome addition. all in all a very very good game that i'm sure you'll enjoy, only one gripe and it's about gaming in general i think all games are £10 overpriced (and this is no different) but if you want it on the day it comes out you must pay.

5.0 out of 5 stars fighting spirit 28 April 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is the best game of the series. The physics are amazing and keeps me playing all night long. The career is a little short but the multiplayer action never stops.
I can highly recommend this game to everyone who likes fighting sport games :)
