Upcoming spring 2009 game, Fight Night round 4
dear oh dear
LOVE FIGHT NIGHT!!!! It was the first ps3 game i had :) Good times and better ones to follow
This has been one of the most boring weeks on N4G. Man that games looks realistic!!!
Tyson in a real boxing game. edit- unfortunately the only realistic footage was just that, "real" footage.
Yeah, it was the very first game I unwrapped and popped into my PS3 as well. Great game indeed. I just hope they fixed the week-long load times with Round 4; those in the previous one were killing me!
@Torch: I played this game on the original Xbox and on the PS3 and the load times were only a problem on the PS3. I'm assuming these guys just needed more time to get their heads around streaming off Blu-Ray so hopefully they'll have it worked out in the 4th game. Great series btw.
The only true Heavyweight Champion of our time! Yes he's an as*, a pr*ck, a mofro, a monster, a canibal,...but he's the greatest fighter that ever lived. No one redefined a sport like he did, no one probably ever will. If only Gus wouldn't have died when he did...Tyson had so much going for him. He could have been a great man, instead, just a great fighter.
But i have to Disagree with the The Greatest Fighter that ever Lived Remark That Without doubt goes to Ali But that Being said i think that a Fight between Tyson and Ali in thier Prime Tyson would have Won !!
It's Cus D'Amato. Tyson has had a lot of problems in his life, and I honestly feel sorry for him---all of that potential...But I won't sit here and call him the names in which you did. Anyways, this game looks so good, Day 1 purchase for me...
"No one redefined a sport like he did, no one probably ever will. If only Gus wouldn't have died when he did." Now I was a fan of Tyson and grew up watching his fights........but I have to ask, how did he redefine the sport? And then I have to ask who was he fighting to redefine the sport? To be honest, I wonder how he has even redefined the sport more than Roy Jones Jr., at least he switch weight classes and dominated. Can you simply look past boxers who paved the way for Tyson?
Lewis > Tyson.
tyson isn't even the 10th greatest heavyweight ever. in the last 20 years alone....holmes, lewis, and holyfield were all better fighters. and that doesn't include earlier fighters such as frazier, ali, foreman,j. lewis, lamotta.....need i go on. tyson had the power to knock out tomato cans, but not the skills to beat the best fighters available. ever wonder why he always dodged fighting riddick bowe? and look what happened when he did fight lennox lewis.
But One thing they should implement in this Generation of the Game and its not to much to Expect Is a Real Career Mode I mean you should Be able to fight Ali's Career From start to finish or Tyson's or Ray leonard,Durans or who ever The Real life opponents who they faced from the First fight of thier career to thier final fight Instead of Picking Tyson for career and fighting no named made up bums all the way through
but fighting real-life bums was tysons career.
Looks good shame its on the 360 its could have looked better with 50gb of space
It's coming to PS3 in March of 09 - the same exact time as the 360... I think EA has learned their lesson about trying to short change PS3 PS3 has really started to catch up to the Xbox 360, to leave the PS3 out of your game design would be a huge mistake. The system has really started to sell huge numbers
amazing, the movement and gameplay is on point
ALLLLL the things I hated about round 3 seem to be getting fixed for rd 4. Now Im even more hyped for this game. I am a fightnight MONSTER, seriously I will play anyone for money. hehehehehehe
fightnight MONSTER My Ass !!!!
your ass is what will be facing after I knock ur ass out chump....lol btw you can forget it if you are one of those weak button mashing b1tches, Im a stick master and deliver rib crushing blows. I've put opponents into knockout mode with a right and finished them with a left in the same combination. go away kid you bother me.
Im just hoping they bring back Rocky Marciano
Iron Mike! Iron Mike! I hope they have Chris Eubanks and Prince Naseem as well. Would be cool.
This game is hell of fun to play with friends at home I cant wait to smack some faces online! Im of to another thread with my MAX SPEED!!!
I Loved fight night round 3 but Boxing is old news, thats why they alway show old fighters not new one.. I check it out but UFC 2009 comes out in the Spring thats where my moneys going
admit that this game is looking good too im 50% sure i will be buying ultimateF. but know i may be buying this one too i mean it has myketayson come on i allways want too play whit him in the old game i hope thety do add many more thing on carrer mode n not the same old rutine!!!
Hope this game leaps significantly better than 3.So far fight night 2 and 3 both feel the same.The only thing that has improved is the graphics so lets hope there is a big difference between 3 and 4. Common developers, give fight night some competition already.
Did you watch the video? It's a safe bet to say that this will feel like a whole new game.
Bill Gates ,Darksniper Wooooooooooooooo I'll beat both your Ass's Wooooooooooooooo And Tyson I'll give that Chump a Beating he wont Ever Forget I'll make Iron Mike Tap !!! Woooooooooooooooo I'm The Greatest And dont get me started with Ali Woooooooooooooooo I'll take that Chump to the top of Space Mountain Woooooooooooooooo TO BE THE MAN, YOU GOT TO BEAT THE MAN, WOOOOOOOOOOO!, AND NOW WEATHER YOU LIKE IT, OR WEATHER YOU DON'T LIKE IT, YOU GOT TO LEARN TO LOVE IT, BECAUSE IT'S THE GREATEST THING GOIN' TODAY Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooo To be the man, you gotta beat the man Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooo I'm The Greatest Ric Flair WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO
I think they did this game a disservice by comparing it to actual boxing footage. It makes the animations and hit reactions that they seem to be so proud of look robotic and unnatural, when actually they are pretty good (for a game). I think that in games, unless there is a significant change in the way they are played and controlled (heavy rain is moving in sort of the right direction), will always look this way. When you press the jab button or whatever your character will always do exactly the same motion. There have always been those issues where you punch from 2 feet away but the set punch that you do is designed around 2 1/4 feet, so it looks unnatural the way it connects and the way your opponent responds.
The animations were very odd and it looks like they put the pivot points for the joints in the wrong area of the character models. Just look at Ali's shoulders as he swings.
"There have always been those issues where you punch from 2 feet away but the set punch that you do is designed around 2 1/4 feet, so it looks unnatural the way it connects and the way your opponent responds." This is being fixed, actually.
That's good to hear - I hope in 5-10 years we can be at the almost lifelike stage. From what I see in this game, it's going to be a while yet, but it's good to see they're trying :)
that Tyson is in there. Sorry but I'm not contributing to a rapist's retirement fund.
Was he actually convicted for that?
Must buy, day number uno.
I'll Make Em All TAP !!!!!!! I'm The Dirtiest Player in the game Wooooooooooooooooooooooooo
I can't wait to get my a$$ kicked in this game!
Ohhh my... just compare this to that piece of .... Facebreaker
It's about time. I've got to start polishing up so I can write my FAQ for this on day one.
Is Rocky balboa in this? :D
this game would look so real
I cant wait to wipe the floor with tyson. Ill do it with Hatton aswell.
Naseem Hammed and Amir Khan in there So i can wipe the floor with them with Tyson or Hatton And i'll Knock you out if you want
haha ill just be joe calzaghe and floor anyone you bring to the ring :)
From ready to rumble And still Whipp your Ass Or a create a charecter like Ivan Drago And Knock you clean out with one Punch
Knocking the F*ck Out
And unrealistic. You can still have responsiveness without defaulting to the base animation in 2 or 3 frames. Why the EA team hasn't realized that is beyond me.
Can't wait for this game MIKE is gonna be a beast!!
OMG, I never played any game for so long as FNR3!!! I'm loving it! FNR4 = First day buy, nothing else!
I know most will disagree but for me personally I LOVE fight night. One of the few times to me that EA sports does something right. I'll win and die by Mike Tyson :) :) :)
FNR3 on PS3 was awsome!
the animations still look repetative and stiff, and the graphics dont look as good as ROUND 3
I noticed that, too. But, I'm willing to say, at the moment, that it's because it's still a work in progress..
I hope they have same easy achievements of FNR3. I played that to get 1000 points in few days of play.
i love fight night cant wait for this preview :)
More sports games would look like this if they actually gave a couple years into the game development. But unfortunately games like Madden dont, and thats why I dont play football games that seem to progress slowly each year instead of all at once. Thats how the make thier money though and the strategy works.
i hope teh guy from pro-evolution soccer does what he said "that in few years (meaning next year or 2010 ) pes will be the real next gem soccer game!!! im not going to buy a socer game this year(pes is the game that have take most of my time for years!!!!!) but tings has chance ever since they diside to go n make games for the wii n xbox n keep making their games for the ps2 i mean WTF :(
fight night 3 is a great game, actually faster online than off, anyway why doesn't Larry Holmes ever get any love, a prime home would have jabbed a prime Tyson half to death. Greatest of all time goes to Sugar Ray Robinson IMO.
Ali WAS the greatest, guys. That's like saying Chuck Norris is better than Bruce Lee or LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan. No matter how fricking untrue it is, some idiots would believe it because of the hype.
How 'bout an 8-bit Tyson?
