The first-ever piece of media from 2K's upcoming boxing game. Prepare to enter the Don Kingdom.
graphically, this game isn't touching fight night... and it seems a tad bit stiff... BUT.. the footwork + counter punching look excellent... presentation and feature wise, we should be in for a real treat.
Agreed. The footwork and some of the gameplay stuff is amazing but graphically, it looks way behind FN3.
Ready 2 Rumble FTW!
Its 2k so graphics aren't their only focus. expect top form in the gameplay dept. Don't know why there is no ps3 port but i will buy it for the 360 regardless
it would be great if it had the first person view that fn3 had when it came out for ps3.... that was awesome
waiting for a new version of mike tyson punch out.
agree with you both but i think you might be fooled by this trailer. I wouldnt count on footwork really making for a good gaming ummmmmm gameplay thing...
that make sense?
just woke up and getting back into work
i dont think your going to see the footwork stuff while ingame and its just fluff on a very normal looking game
I don't know... early previews and reports/interviews I've read on Operation Sports show that Venom are placing a heavy emphasis on footworking
this garbage, come on people its freaking Don King. I am a fight night beast, seriously, I will play people for money. (with rules of course) Sony needs to do for boxing what they did for baseball with MLB:08:The Show (im not a baseball fan and even I have this game it looks so sick) so please Sony make the most realistic fighting sim ever made and we can tell EA and Don King to kiss us where the sun dont shine.
I remember the box of the original Playstation having a game on the back called "BOXING FOR THE PLAYSTATION" I wonder what happened to it and Sony doing for boxing what they did for baseball, I'm not too sure about, they'd REALLY have to find talented developers like they did with the MLB series... and that seems like a hard enough task being their NBA series hasn't really been all that (especially when compared to NBA 2k series from 2k6 and later) P.S.: MLB 08 The Show is the best looking and playing sports game I've ever played.
Published by EA? And no PS3 version? Well that says a lot about EA "love" towards PS3 and their hidden partnership with MS. Trust me in few years MS buys EA, that is why MS was so passive when EA was buying Bioware and Pandemic. Think for a second about it.
and screw Don King
They are going to have to work hard to beat with the Fight Night series did for the boxing but if they have a good cast of boxers which I thought Fight Night always lacked in I would give this a shot. I guess the only game this is going to have to contend with is Facebreaker, which I wish was FN Round 4.
about this whole situation is the people like me who have time invested in TOTAL PUNCH CONTROL, which of course is trademarked by EA (don't ask me why you can trademark joysticks schemes and movements), meaning that unless someone pony's up dough to EA for a licence everyone of us just wasted a considerable amount of time in a dead boxing series. We pros hate EA too, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, lol.
but this would be sweet for the 360 owers. forget the wii.. thank you 2k...wait no....thank you EA...hahahah
what would be sweet?
The training looks really fun, and the footwork in the game looks phenomenal.
If some one can make punch out in 3d I'd love that.
I'll only purchase this if there's a sim mode that leads you into suing King for underpaying you like the half dozen or so boxers in the past. Or, you could settle out of court in a fight against Don, also the Jacksons have to play music in the background from the Victory Tour.
