Fignt Night Round 4 Review

Welcome back everyone I will be reviewing yet another EA game, and this was one was much advertised. They also showed this game at E3 more than any other EA game. If you have yet to figure it out I am going to do a review on Fight Night round 4.

Fight Night Round 1 came out on April 5th, 2004 on the original Xbox were at that time it was good but unknown. Then they came out with Fight Night Round 2 which was released on February 28, 2005 on the original Xbox. The franchise really took off was when Fight night round 3 came out on February 20, 2006 on Xbox 360. Now we are on the fourth version on the game called Fight Night Round 4 that was just released on June 24, 2009.

The Game brings a whole new system as they revamp how you move, punch, and how you play the game. When you first start playing the game the opening scene looks good. The really good thing when you play the game right off the bat, is that you have you go through a tutorial for all of the new controls of the game which is nice if you have never played the game before or the demo. The graphics are so unreal with every year and ever game the graphics are just going to get better. Now to the game. The game when you first start out is kind of easy but, once you get to other fights, it gets real annoying because the computer seems like it will not hit you and you get hit like crazy no matter if you block it. The other thing that gets frustrating is when you are about to knock the computer down the computer grabs you and holds on to you. This happens in real life but it just get frustrating. If you got mad at Madden 09, then you will most likely get mad at this game very easily.

So after this review, I am going to give this game a 3 stars out of 5 I would say only to rent it, do not buy it because once you buy the game and beat you will get really bored and the online has to many glitcher’s. I want to thank everyone for taking the time to read this and I hope everyone has a good 4th of July.


  1. This game is so sick. Just got it a week ago and it’s all i’ve been doing with my time. I mean, having Mike Tyson in the game was enough for me to like it already, but they’ve improved a bunch of shit form the last one – the corporate ads aren’t as omnipresent and annoying, the game play has less of a pre-determined feel to it, and they actually have some cool music (rad remixes of Tokyo Police Club’s “The Baskerillve’s” and El-P’s “Flyentology” amongst others).

    It still kinda sucks to play online because most of the gamers are just random button mashers who over-punch instead of trying to fight realistically, but if you play with friends that actually know about boxing than this game is fun as hell…you can easily emulate Ali’s rope-a-dope or Tyson’s peek-a-boo styles.

    Anyway thought I’d share a gameplay video of Mike Tyson vs. Winky Wright that I found :

  2. I still think that Fight Night Round 3 was better in some ways. The announcers become extremely repetitive, it takes forever to get your boxer's rating up in Legacy Mode and there's not as much blood or damage to the character's faces as there was last year. Stopable agrees with me.

    Thank you for the comment Brett. Feel free to comment anytime, it'll get conversations flowing.
