So, what in the name of all that is good were they thinking with FaceBreaker? No doubt you've probably seen the game lining the bargain buckets and clearance sales across the nation lately, and thought, "surely it can't be that bad for sub-£15?" It is. Trust me, it really is.
As you can probably tell from the cartoon-like graphics, this is far from a serious boxing game, and much more an "arcade" style title. The lack of an in-ring referee and the fact that there are no 10 counts for knock-downs further confirms this. It's marketed under the EA Sports Freestyle range (formerly known as EA Sports BIG), which recently added the downloadable title 3-on-3 NHL Arcade to its catalogue. Looking back, perhaps they should have taken the same non-disc route for this one."
