Great fun...Great Game..........4.5/5,
This review is from: Fight Night Champion (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Am not a boxing fan but I do get every Fight Night, and I think this one is surely the best. Combine real boxing and Rocky films and you get Fight Night Champion. By this I mean if you watch a Rocky film you know there is no chance in this world 2 boxers can power punch each other for 12 rounds, they'd be a knockout in round 1 everytime if real boxing was like Rocky. But do we still love the Rocky films....Yes (well besides some) This game fights like Rocky films so its really exciting see power punches flying in and its so much fun but on the other hand Fight Night is realistic in the sense that you need to fight smart if you lose control and just go straight out for the KO you will be put on your back, you have to fight smart like real boxing but at the same time its just like the Rocky films....Could you get any better than that?
The game is so rewarding too when you start to swell your opponents eye and once again compare it to Rocky when his eye swells up, it look so incredibly realistic and you think WOW!! keep punishing the guy and you'll make him bleed....BIG! Fantastic graphics and damage and Amazing EFFECT!. This game is brilliant.
Now to my bad points, I knew when Champion Mode (Story) was first announced it would be a disapointment so i never got my hopes up and franky am glad, the story is a little let down as it is extremely short and you have hardly any say what so ever on how your fights turn out which can make you huff and puff. My other let down is the Legacy mode, now don't get me wrong this is better than ever....but once you get your fighter to be a CHAMP! (By the way this feels great to move up the ladder and start defending your title) the only problem is I have won all 3 titles now, and for the past 10-15 or soo fights I can only fight the same 5 guys, which makes you fed up because you want to fight new fighters otherwise you just get bored.
DON'T LET THIS PUT YOU OFF!
Fantastic game and very rewarding, great in everyway besides the 2 matters I mentioned, would recommend to you all.
GREAT FUN AND REWARDING!!!
