Adversity is a strange thing. It’s when the sky darkens that people of valour are at their best. When the first Fight Night Champion trailers hit the internet, I felt like a violent gust of wind threw me on my back. The Electronic Arts Canada team went back to the drawing board and from what they’re showing, and they seem to have worked out a landmark game. After the release of Fight Night Champion this March, sports games might just have to live up to EA Sports’ latest work, the way games had to live up to Grand Theft Auto III ten years ago.
