We need Fight Night to return to the ring

Improved 4K visuals, a new generation of boxers and improved multiplayer lobbies…man, that would be great. Until that day comes, Fight Night is going to remain outside of the periphery of the fighting game genre, as the ref slowly counts one of the finest franchises out of the ring.

Guess we won't see another Fight Night until next gen at the soonest. Did any notable boxing games come out this gen at all?

lptmg1682d ago

the Creed game for PSVR was pretty good.

Skuletor1682d ago

Didn't know it existed, I'll have to look it up. Thanks

Fight night round 4 is still the best boxing game at the moment.
I still pop it in my old Xbox from time to time and nothing beats the feeling of a close fight in the late rounds.

I liked round 3 better myself, it gave you a lot more controll especially when it came to defense, which really allowed you to develop your own style and finesse to things.

Petebloodyonion1681d ago

I loved Round 3 but it was nearly impossible to win as a technical boxer.
The game heavily focused on the counterpunch Philly stance and Ko made winning a match by points nearly impossible.
Also, the losing boxer on a scorecard would get a boost of Stamina later on (lousy catch-up logic) was not something I was fond of.
I could also add the Headbutt that made cutting easy.
But I loved the corners mini-games or the dept of working on bruises and cuts.
The animation was also fantastic.

SkatterBrain1682d ago

cut the UFC Servers too , some of those grapples look awkward when people would walk in and see 2 guys straddling each other, i tried soo hard to make it not look weird

traumadisaster1681d ago

Tbh the actual matches look awkward when passerbys walk in and see the straddling party. I constantly think get up and fight.

BQ321682d ago

Round 4 was the best the franchise had to offer. You could find success playing to each fighters strengths and anytime somone wanted to spam a particular cheese i could always find a realistic boxing strategy to counter it. Champion started off pretty good but the game was very exploitable and became a cheese fest. The auto block severely hurt the game as well. If they ever make a new game i hope they look at how they achieved competitve balance in the gameplay of Round 4.

Graphics were top notch in FN4. Too bad EA never returned to it.

The Best EA Sports Video Games

Chances are, your video game collection probably has at least one EA Sports title in it. From the latest Madden, FIFA, and NHL releases of today to the MVP Baseball and NCAA Football releases of yesteryear, EA Sports has long held the gold standard for sports video games, and continues to dominate the market.

strayanalog2252d ago

Judging from the list, EA's best days are behind them and I'm inclined to agree. And now that I think about it, EA only holds the "gold standard" because there aren't any other developers around their sports monopoly.

As for NHL '94... I loved that game. It seemed every time I headed over to my friend's place we would have to play his copy eventually. Now I kinda wanna play it since I haven't in... well, a long time.

SegaGamer2251d ago

FIFA 13 was the last EA Sports game i enjoyed. Everything has been rubbish since then.

OzzY-waZZy2251d ago

Fight Night was great. Such a shame they stopped making those.

gamerz2251d ago

True, but the fudged up the controls in the last one so they were already on the road to ruin.
