"The Fight Night series is arguably one of the best sports franchises seen this generation. It leapt onto the scene with the visually stunning Fight Night Round 3 back in 2006 and polished the gameplay with 2009's Fight Night Round 4. Now EA Canada has decided that they want to further improve the formula of the series with its latest entry, Fight Night Champion. Champion offers a darker view of boxing, possibly one that's even more realistic; you're given the chance to play through the story of a boxer's journey from amateur ranks to a possible championship bout, feel the violence of a match first hand, and have more control of where your punches land. On the surface, there's a lot of good to be found in Champion, but it's what was found underneath that hurts."
