Review: Fight Night Round 4
In 2006 EA changed the sports game landscape by releasing Fight Night Round 3, the most complete boxing video game available at the time most and possibly the most graphically realistic video game we’d ever seen. Three years and several thousand bloody mouth pieces later, we’ve dawned on the release of the highly anticipated Fight Night Round 4.
FNR4 carries a lot of weight in sports gaming. It is the only respectable option for a pro boxing video game. UFC 2009 established its own niche in the fighting genre as an MMA game, but in terms of strictly boxing games, we’ve had little to compete with the excellence of Fight Night. Therefore for the past three years, the entire gaming segment of the sports loving world has been eagerly awaiting the next iteration of the best (read: only) boxing game out there. Make no mistake about it, the hype is unprecedented.
