  • I think the graphic engine and style are real cool, kinda a Ready to Rumble in Next Gen.

    Looks promising, combined with fun gameplay and hot graphics and real cool cool characters you can't go wrong.

    Not sure why there is allot of hate going around if you want realistic boxing don't get this, EA has other alternatives.

    • I gotta say that this trailer looked pretty cool. It kind of reminds me of SSX, where a company took a sport to its ultra-arcade ends and still made one hell of a good game.

      I liked Fight Night plenty, and it will be a shame if they sacrifice tight, intuitive controls to make this game more mainstream, but I have to say that it got a little old to just knock down one john doe after another. I can understand that beating the actual world feather-weight champion might add to the experience for a boxing fan, but for me its just another skinny guy to punch a bunch. Making characters that have character would definitely be a draw for me.

      I hope that there is at least an option to keep the music on during fights. Again, Fight Night did a great job with realistic fight sounds, but that gets pretty boring after you have heard Punch Sound Effect #12 for the 20th time. A little techno might be a nice soundtrack (although I think it would be best if you could decide to turn that music off, in case you prefer a bit more realistic game).

      In sum -- Make this game play well, and I will come running.
