The Fight Is Grossly Underrated

Been watching a lot of The Fight videos really thinking hard about getting the game - unfortunately, I need the PS Move to play it. Was going to wait until Killzone 3 t get the Move controllers, but after reading this I think I am going to pick this game up with the Move controller on boxing day! :D

saint_john_paul_ii2892d ago

if you live in NYC, go the PS store at madison ave. and play it.

Quagmire2892d ago

Yes, because everyone lives in NYC

callahan092892d ago

I actually do, and had no idea there was a PlayStation store here. I'll have to check it out sometime.

NewMonday2892d ago

Like Marvel comics characters

There is much higher probability that you'll gain super powers in NYC than any other city/state/country.

The Fight may be grossly underrated, I actually plan on picking it up this weekend. But that derives from the fact that this site has been majorly kissing Sony's butt lately after their little embargo incident.

Im sorry but I have to think that the reasoning for this article is to basically apologize to Sony for their mistake. Giving them positive press is one step in the direction of not getting blacklisted, as stated in their previous article. Also, the LBP wallpaper draped all over the site doesn't help either. This is basically an advertisement staged as an opinion piece. Truly sad.

Disagree with me all you want. I love Sony. But this site is going overboard.

Hi EcliPS3-

First of all, Little Big Planet 2 is one of the biggest games coming out early 2011. Before this theme we had Call of Duty: Black Ops, believe it or not. :)

I understand your concern but I honestly thinking you are reaching just a little bit. We already apologized for the leak. The whole Sony ordeal is behind us. I am not sure if you have read the article but if you haven't I will briefly sum it up for you so you don't have to click on the link:

1. The controls work.
2. The game is fun.
3. Definitely worth more than a 3.0

That's basically it. We are not saying it's the greatest game in the world, we are merely trying to encourage people to try the game themselves. This is not just my opinion, there are a lot of gamers who agree with me, and as @GoneGodHand pointed out, it has raving user reviews at Amazon to prove that.


Nah, man. It's cool. When I saw that this article was posted I facepalmed hard. I kind of expected comments like that. It really does seem like an ass-kiss article, even to me. :P

Why would a site make something like this up to kiss up to Sony? That makes no sense. What Sony needs to do though is put out a demo of this game. That will show everyone if this game is bad or not.

Ju2891d ago

I agree with the Eskimo. According to the reviews I should have never bought that game. However, I did. And I have no regrets.

This game should fall under "workout" not just some random "casual entertainment". If you put it in this context, it is an awesome game, actually, there is nothing which comes even close. Not saying it is a 10 or anything, just saying, there is no other fighting game which does what The Fight does. Simple.

gamesmaster2891d ago


I don't see how in any way this article has been written to ass kiss sony, i think its absurd and hurtful to make a comment like that when Eskimo's intentions are clearly genuine in wanting people to experience this underrated game.

The fact he states valid reasons for his opinion is reason enough to believe him.

I dont see you making comments like this when say CNET IGN or Gamespot write articles like this added to whatever advertisments they have at the time. be it xbox360 ps3 or wii inclined.

Jack Meahoffer2891d ago (Edited 2891d ago )

Agreed that this article shouldnt be labeled as biased.

All the reasons being discussed should also come to mind on the opposite side when everyone cries that an article is biased against Sony.

What's the point? Motive? There isn't a point and therefore people need to stop crying bias all around unless the site is made to be geared toward one platform or another.

And before everyone says "website hits" are the motive... There are a lot of ways to be sinsationalist without being negative.

Remember legit sites won't dare risk their brand on being proven biased.

The fight is grossly crap

I wouldn't pick it up unless it's in the $20 range. It's wonky broken calibration has aggravated me to no end. I do believe it's a patch or four away from being a functional game though.

JoeReno2892d ago

Broken calibration... How so? I mean, I will agree tgat the head tracking wont work in my place unless its daytime, but other that that whats wrong with it?

works fine for me.

Vaud-Villian2890d ago

A fully extended punch that doesnt fully extend your in game characters arm, aimed punches that dont repeat the same trajectory even though you do, dirty moves that have about a 7% actually working rate and movement controls that seem to have a mind of their own.

Of course this is with feet planted, take a 2cm shift any direction and it gets worse with depleting returns.

Spitfire_Riggz2892d ago

If you guys need nice in depth reviews I suggest looking up iWaggle3D on youtube or going to their site. The man does very in depth reviews of all the move games and it should really help. I love him, very professional. He doesnt score them either. (I will warn he has an italian accent but its not too bad)

Terror_B2891d ago

The game is truly awful, avoid like the plague.

Koolno2891d ago

Stfu troll liar, you don't have a ps3...

terror b comment :
"LOL, Kinect sports sold more than GT5, Sony must be ashamed. #2.10

4h ago by Terror_B | View comment Sublime? No chance. Well at least maybe it is for N4G users. GT5 is so bland i found it hard to stay awake so i decided to sell it and went back to playing the best racing game this gen and maybe of all time, Forza 3. #1.3

and every single other comments are that kind of stupids fanboyz comments.

pswi602891d ago

I don't normally log in to n4g that much anymore...too many microsoft employees trolling the comments section.

That being said, I have to say something about The Fight: Lights Out: It's a great game. Like all the user reviews and comments said, at first it can be confusing (because of stamina bar/rage meter) and the training can be difficult if you don't know how to do it.

However...once you get setup (good lighting, blank background behind you, transparency patch) this game is a blast. I'm about halfway to maxing out my stats, I can max out all the training sessions for max attribute points, and when I step in the cage with someone, whether online or CPU, it's a great experience.

I love: trying to beat my hardest clean punch, fast knockouts, calorie burns, windmills, elbows, upgrades, training, and when I get done, I feel like I've worked out playing a video game. I have to rest up over the next day or 2 so I can play again.

This game isn't for cowards. Or fatbodies. If you have any kind of real world coordination, this game is for you. One of my friends has never really played sports in his life, but I turned him on to this game and he played until he couldn't move his arms. Everyone who comes over to watch football on Sunday tries this game and they all love it.

The reviewers and game journalists out there really dropped the ball on this one. I hope word of mouth is good enough so we get a Fight: Lights Out Round 2.

SuggestionBoy2892d ago

Aw, man. My wallet celebrated when the harsh review scores came in, it meant I could save my money for something else. Ahhh.... it's a cheapy, too. :-S Damn it. Should I buy it?

Kitchen_Sink2892d ago

This article is spot-on! Get it, man, if you can afford it. Well worth it. Head tracking can be a bitch sometimes but it doesn't really matter. I have played the game about 25 times and only lost head tracking about 3 times.

snp2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

Hoping your right. Have it on way in mail (UK to Australia so likely not here till after Christmas). Got it for very cheap, though, so no big loss if i'm not into it.

Usually i tend to go by reviews - at least up to a point - but after reading IGN on Tumble (3.5), and then trying the thing myself (8 imo), i'm less inclined to care much what the major sites say and more inclined to listen to users these days (especially if users are complaining en mass about, with a pretty much unified voice, scores/a score given being too too low).

LittleBigHalo2892d ago

Good article but I am going to have to skip this game. Little Big Planet is my number one buy of 2011! :D

FiLTHY ESKiMO2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

Kind of obvious that you like Little Big Planet and I cannot argue against that. Little Big Planet is going to be amazing. You could quite possibly even recreate The Fight: Lights out with LBP2 :)

If you can rent The Fight out, at least do that. It's a great experience. :)

Uuugh. I learned the hard way, three times over. My arms are still recovering. :)

alphakennybody2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

haha! same here at first, forgot to warm up cause I kinda underestimated it.

SodoBot2892d ago

Since I swing like a girl I really think I will skip this one. It has though produced some entertaining videos. :)

LBP2. Cannot wait for that game. Especially after seeing the sports trailer!

alphakennybody2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

reason why it got so many undeserved low score is simply because it's a a motion controlled game, even though it works very well. I have it and it's a great work out!( don't forget to warm up and stretching you muscles before playing)

KillerCucumber2892d ago

It got an average of like 3.0 or something. That is incredibly low. Things weren't looking too good for the Move when it launched. Only game that was really worth getting, according to these journalists, was that sports game.

@Filthy Eskimo
That's a lot of smileys! :P

jizzyjones2892d ago

Shame Sony hasn't released a demo of it
