From the PlanetXbox360.com feature review:
"Every now and then there are always a handful of sports titles that aren't artificial enough to be slapped on by the last-two-digits-of-the-current-year EA sticker where the lack of direction and ever-so-present limitations in time tend to be self evident in its final product. Avoiding the 'churn every year' two-step dance EA Sports have done with the likes of FIFA, NBA Live and Madden, the Fight Night franchise has enjoyed a prosperous life thanks to its sporadic release runs. Round 3 was in every sense a knockout back in 2006 when it glistened with next-gen visuals and intuitive controls; a surprise comparable to that of Tyson's ear-chomping foray 10 years before considering EA's track record. Almost 3 years after the release of its critically acclaimed big brother, it is indeed safe to say that Fight Night Round 4 has excelled in almost all of the areas that were unrealised by its older siblings. To say that the visuals in Round 4 are stunning would be an understatement. From the painstakingly detailed character models, the thick brooding bustle of the venues to the top-tiered trademark polish in presentation present in every EA game; the fourth iteration of this boxing franchise is one hell of a looker. As an individual title amongst its peers, Round 4 seems to visually trump even the most anticipated games on the platform."
