Normally I dont go for boxing games. They almost always turn into total 'button bashing' affair. Borndom then normally sets in soon after. Then I tried Fight Night round 3 on Xbox 360. For the first hour I was blown away by the graphics. The boxers look stunning! In fairness I dont know many boxers but I immediately could tell who was who. Now I would not say the boxers are photo real but it comes very close indeed. After a few hours of play something else happened! I found myself naturally picking my punches and intuitively working my way through each fight. Button bashing quickly lead to defeat! After a couple of days I was really able to mix things up throwing all manner of combos. Again this all happened naturally and without the need for memorizing. I just knew my way round the ring. The whole thing is easy to play but seems to take more time to master. As any beat em up fan knows this is key to any good fight game. Now if you dont like beat em ups nor boxing you will not enjoy this game. It unlikly to change your mind if you have already decided you dont like this kind of game. So dont buy it and dont rate it. Otherwise I can totally recommend this game to you. At last EA sports has done a game on the Xbox that doesnt seem lazy! This perhaps one of the best boxing games ever, or at least a contender for the crown.
