First of all I just got done putting this game in my 360 about 15 minutes ago...And the fact that I am on here writing a review about it already has gotta tell you how much this game blows...
I was also one of the people that played the demo on Xbox Live and thought this was gonna be a fun game to check out, but let me tell you, I was soooooo wrong.
On the little positive side of the game, the characters are pretty cool and have some funny and interesting personalities to them, and the arenas you fight in are kinda cool but as far as gameplay goes this game really is one of the first games I've played on 360 since it's launch that I am truly and honestly disappointed with..And trust me I wasn't expecting FN3 material here! lol I looked at this game as more of a button smashing,fun arcadey type of game...Atleast thats what I thought it was going to be.
The A.I. is hard to deal with even on the easy setting!?!? and all you really do in the game is smash on buttons (a) and (x) how hard can it be right? Thats what I said! Sure you can try to dodge and parry punches but thats pretty much a joke as well depending on what fighter you are going up against..
For example there is a female fighter in the game that is impossible to strike with a punch, I mean come on now! I sat there for 2 straight rounds and barely was able to hit her more then 2 or 3 times because she is some type of "punch dodging goddess" And dont even get me started on her annoying laugh after each punch she dodged! lol She truly peeed me off!
Anyway thats when I turned it off and I am will be putting this back in the mailbox first thing tomorrow morning..

I played the demo, it was alright. Then I played the full game and busted a controller after throwing it to the floor. The game was on the easiest difficulty and it was still impossible to beat the opponents. Seriously, I have beat every other game I have played and never got as PO'd at one enough to break a controller. Fight Night 3 was amazing. Even Ready to Rumble was good. BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
D### It, I've got to buy another controller!!!!!!!!!!
