Kotaku Review: The Fight: Lights Out Swings & Misses

There's not a whole lot to like about The Fight: Lights Out. This is a dank, dismal looking fighting game with iffy controls, a disconnected fighting experience and a dull single-player campaign. The most charming moments in The Fight: Lights Out came from actor Danny Trejo's campy instructional tutorials, particularly when the leathery bad-ass is holding pink and blue glowing Move controllers in each hand, mentoring you on how to crack skulls. But those moments are not worth the entry fee required to take part in The Fight.

The story is too old to be commented.

and it's awesome. For the life of me i can't understand why it's getting such bad reviews. Can't speak for fighters uncaged but I hope the devs for the fight give us some dlc. More cusomization options for our characters would be nice.

I have The Fight also and it works! I actually didn't even try to play it today because my arms are tired from yesterday.

Kotaku are such Ms fanboys I am surprise they took the time to barrow a PS3 and a Move controller to review this game.

**and before I get the backlash I should point out that Kotaku themselves admit their baised against the PS3, on GT's bonus round.

Let's face is, fighting games (like most sport games) don't work with motion controls.

Motion controls try to make the games feel "life like" but the problem is most users can't fight in feel life anyway.

The perfect fighting game with 1:1, all moves available, etc wont be fun because the uses can't do it. A fighter could, but he would be in a ring rather than playing video games.

Keep motion sports games where they belong - as shovel-ware for 8 year olds. Wii did that, now lets move on.

I'm loving this game. It's not perfect by any means but it's alot better than these lazy reviews make out.
I'm addicted to the target practice training mode.
Edit: If there's anybody that's been put off getting this game because of the poor reception I suggest you read the user reviews on the likes of Amazon and Metacritic they are far more in depth and honest than these so called professional reviews.

This game is good, when you realize its a boxing RPG sim hybrid, not a pure boxing sim. You have to build up your character, and enjoy the training. If you don't want to move around while gaming... well you shouldn't own a motion controller, probably.
