You see, my father was a member of the Naval boxing team during the mid-60s, and from an early age I sat in wonder of his countless stories about experiences in the ring. But Fight Night Round 3 was the first boxing videogame that made him stop and look at it, because at first glance he thought it was real. It's been 3 1/2 years since then, and although several high profile boxing titles have hit the market, none have come close to matching what the team at EA Chicago accomplished. Developed by an all-new team and re-built from the ground up Fight Night Round 4 is in good hands with the team at EA Canada; not only have they matched the quality of the original title, but in many ways they dramatically exceeded it."
