I'm not a boxing fan, and have never played this series up until this point.

I want to warn everyone that this game is highly addictive. The graphics are well done. The music is pretty cool and the extra options and training mode are pretty cool. I've stayed up until 2:30 or 3:00am on numerous nights playing this game(darn you Ali).

The drawbacks: A LOTS OF redundancies. Same catch phrases, same nicknames, same effect on the knockout replays, same pre-fight entrances. Also, you can only unlock an unlimited amount of trainers and seem to earn money you aren't even capable of spending later on in career mode.

I rate this game an 8 and will probably end up purchasing this if I decide to ever return it :)

I have played the PS3 version & own the 360 version & will compare the 2.

Advantage 360 - Better background, 3D modeled crowds, & far better lighting.

Advantage PS3 - Better character detail (sweat, muscles, etc.), & improved cut system.

Disadvantage 360 - Constructed earier then PS3 so the combat system is different. Character models are good but not PS3 good.

Disadvantage PS3 - Under developed online play. detail outside the ring is last gen.

Both play well. I prefer 360's punching system but I also prefer the new cut system for healing on the PS3. PS3 is no good online, 360's rocks. Graphics are at a draw. inside ring PS3 wins hands down, but when you look at lighting & crowd/stage it really disappoints.

PS3 = 8.4 out of 10
360 = 8.9 out of 10

This game has solid graphics and is very crisp on my 720p LCD display. The default level of "medium" in Career mode is a little easy but this can be fixed by leveling up. Career mode is somewhat disjointed, but it offers great action and great ability to modify your boxer. All in all this is a great game. The only problem with the graphics is an occasional ghost effect as a punch is thrown. Definitely rent it. One of the better PS3 launch titles.
