I believe this type of game is exactly the type of game casual gamers need and like. Not everyone wants to play super realistic, "difficult to master" type of games. kids, females and grown ups usually want something that they can just jump in and play and have loads of fun. Like the good old arcade games of yesteryear..

I think it is unfair to review casual games the same way as hardcore games are reviewed. This game deserves at least a 7 in what it is trying to achieve, but of course doesnt come close to Fight Night 3 and shouldnt even be in the same category.
