You can't deny,Ready 2 Rumble: Round 3...sorry I meanFacebreaker, was absolutely abysmal, so it's no surprise that EA is planning another addition to the Fight Night series. Each iteration has shown genuine improvement, and the unique and innovative analog control scheme has succeeded in bringing boxing games to the masses. Round 3 was literally a knockout, it was one of the best looking games on the market at the time, and frankly still holds it's own to a lot of titles being released even now, almost 3 years later.
For me it was the first truly next-gen gaming experience, with out standing visuals, and animation that came surprisingly close to the real thing. You could see the sweat dripping down heaving muscles, the blood trickling over battered and bruised faces, the flesh on faces stretched to its limit as concrete fists land one skull crushing punch after the other.
Graphically the game easily warranted a double take, just to check you weren't actually watching ESPN. Aside from providing one of the most homo-erotic gameplay experiences I've ever come across, this was a true benchmark in terms what can be done with the not so little boxes under our TV's, and I can only hope that EA come out swinging in Round 4, and we aren't forced to throw in the towel.
