The game was good but it reminded of Fight Nite Round 1 and 2. The game had more zest and more boxing types but it lacked some of the better boxers in boxing history and the game needed more arenas to box in to give a feel of working your way up in the ranks to become the best. But the ESPN classic matches were fun to do and gave you a you a look into boxing history. The game was fun hope you have fun playing the game, GameGod656 signing off.

I enjoyed this game. It's a lot of fun either solo or against a friend(or foe, your call). I just think that it could have been better. For one, there should have been more fighters to play with, or they could have substituted some. We were missing great heavyweight fighters such as: Mike Tyson(duh), Lennox Lewis, George Foreman, Joe Luis, Rocky Marciano, Jack Johnson and a few more I can't think of right now. Where was Sugar Shane Mosley(huh). They should have had some of those guys in there instead of who they chose. Floyd Patterson(come on), why not have George Foreman in his place. He would have whipped Floyd Patterson any day of the week. Tyson instead of Toney. Lennox instead of Big E.(never even heard of him. Rocky Marciano instead of Goliath(same as big E. who?). That's just the fighters. About Realistic. What fighter will just stand still for five seconds and allow you to pummel him after a parry? I have boxed before and it's never happened for me or my opponent. After a fighter's punch is parried/pushed away he will just stand there for 3-5 seconds paralyzed and ready for punishment. This is dumb and unrealistic. Change it for Round 4, developers. All the impact punches are hard to throw in succession and are very slow and easily blocked, parried or dodged. Through it all, I still enjoyed the game a lot. It's fun, amusing, and downright entertaining. I busted out laughing when I saw the Burger King mascot, escorting my opponent into the ring. The Commentators are hilarious. The trainers are gut busting. Despite all my dislikes, there was still a lot to love about Fight Night Round 3.

Challenge Me. I challenge anyone to find a better boxing game since Mike Tyson’s Punch Out was released for the NES back in the day. Oh man has this game got it all. Every boxer you can think of, well, except maybe Tyson. You know an ear-biting special move would be kind of cool. Anyway. What makes this game so great is that it’s easy to pick up and play with a simple control system and for those die-hard fans a bit of realism with accurate joystick controls to pinpoint that hook and jab just where you want it. Career mode is the way to go which starts you as a rookie working your way to title champion. You’ll progress while going through some mini-game like training sessions build your fighter’s attributes, eventually getting your shot at the title. You can also play single fights with a friend and even go online and challenge the best. Of all the versions out there the Xbox 360 looks the best. With the face distortion effects after a hard punch, it’s so realistic it hurts to watch. Don’t miss out on this one. No matter what system you own it’s a must have!
