Fight Night: Champion Review

  • Mar 8, 2011
Fight Night: Champion takes the franchise and turns it on its head a bit. The Fight Night franchise is and has always been the definitive boxing simulation, the perfect blend of precise control, and brutal realism. When I reviewed Fight Night: Round 4 back in 2009 I, remember thinking to myself, how are they going to top this. Of all the sports I can think of, boxing has actually changed the least and when developers build a game around something that hasn’t really changed, they are challenged to make a somewhat static experience seem new and fresh again. How do you take a game based on a sport who’s main goal is to beat the crap out of someone and make it compelling? That’s easy – write one hell of a compelling story.
