A Shaky 3rd Round

This game is almost the same as past versions, but if you aren't an avid Fight Night fan, this game could give you some problems. The punches at the beginning of your carreer are very slow, and it hurts the realism of the game, but if you play with more advanced fighters, or if you get better, Round: 3 becomes more of a fun boxing game. The analog stick punching can cause problems at the beginning, but the more you play, the easier it becomes. I also noticed, that very often, matches will be one sided from the start, and if your on the wrong end, it is almost impossible to win. Fight Night Round:3 got a 5 from me, because of the slow punching, and difficult controls.

Boxing has always been a very hard genre to come out with a great and realistic game that makes the gamer feel like they are actually in the ring. Fight night is no different.

The graphics are great, with few complaints. I have seen some glitches. However they are not big enough to complain about.

The game play seems like button mashing. There is very little technique involved in playing Fight Night. The AI is redicolous. I do not feel that the cut man ablitity that is between rounds is worth anything, again it comes down to mashing on your controller buttons.

Fight Night 3 needs many things to make it a great game, and EA sports has a ways to go before it can say it made a great boxing game. There needs to be some skill involved and no button mashing. There needs to be a better training period instead of the more button mashing stuff that they have inserted.

Good gaming to all!
