I'm not really into boxing, but if this game can make a muscular version of me, I'm sold.

BTW I wonder if I can put my cats head on a boxer's body, that would be EPIC.

Jeff's Fight Night head looks a bit like 'The Miz' from WWE!

Can't wait to play this, FPSs are cool too but nothing compares to fighting games for beating the shit out of your friends.

Only Kudo Tsunoda can describe how a Fight Night game works in insane depth.

I still think this doesn't look as good as Round 3 (i dont mean literally) looks a little too slugfest.

Just be prepared for the endless jab combo's. As with any fighting game, people find a move to exploit.  In this case it's the jab.  It's avoidable, but if you happen to go all ten rounds,  odds are the 'jabber' will win any draw as they most likely will land the most punches - due to the fact that you tried swaying and blocking and they just kept punching.  Other then that the game kicks ass.

Killer tone and scripting for your video review Jeff.  Just one of many examples proving the kids at Giant Bomb pump out the best coverage on the 'net.

Sounds like it's worth a look if you enjoy boxing.  That disconnect rating sounds cool but i could see people with crappy internet connections getting frustrated cause nobody wants to play with them.

commentary were pissing me off in the demo ... it's the only major deal breaker !! (most of you might think i'm crazy for not buying a game just because of that)
but talking about a push just as i'm landing it ... AND talking about every single punches i do ... can't take it

Boxing games all seem to have horrible looking animations. It looks like they're swinging their arms like 1 MPH or something, and then just sliding their fists gently off their face.

I'll be honest - I don't care at all about boxing. That's why I'm usually uninterested in games like this. But when I heard about the character customization system, I became intrigued. And then after hearing about the custom MP3 support, I was sold.

It took us this long for game designers to put in a feature letting us know the disconnect rating? Either way I applaud FNR4 for this alone.

Hate how the quick looks are quite a bit longer than the reviews, (say eight or ten times so) but love how little 'figuring shit out' the actual reviews consist of... however I still say there's a medium balance to be held.

At no point did Jeff say that, he just meant it sold well for the 360.

Sweet review, Jeff. Your created dude still kinda freaks me out, and he looks like frickin' Jack Osbourne when you put the beard on him. Agh!

Totally gonna pick this up I think... not sure when though.

The game looks kinda good, but doesn't it look like the punches are totally powerless?
