Fight Night Champion
« on: November 14, 2010, 12:39:02 PM »
EA Canada announced Fight Night 5 back in July with Fight Night Champion, promising new features, a larger roster of fighters and brand new single player mode.

Saying at the time:

Quote from: EA Canada
Fight Night Champion will break the mold of what is expected in a single-player sports game. Players will be introduced to an entirely new way to step between the ropes and experience the drama, emotion, excitement and tragedy of world championship boxing.

Fight Night Champion is due March 2011 and here's a Trailer

They kinda broke the mold with FNR3 - not sure anything that they've offered since really appeals. Might have some to do with the lack of interest in boxing in general.

David Haye is Fight Night Champion's cover star



EA has announced that David 'The Haymaker' Haye, the current WBA World Heavyweight Champion, will be adorning the UK box for Fight Night Champion.

Haye will also be fully playable in the game and, as "a champion in every sense", will lead a roster of "many other current boxers and all time greats".

The game features a revamped control system, excessively named "Full Spectrum Punch Control". Apparently this is the "most realistic punching system ever seen", whilst still being accessible for newcomers.

EA has put out two new trailers for Fight Night Champion, one showcasing offensive tactics and the other defensive ones.

Gameplay producer Brian Hayes walks you through the tutorials, explaining the game's revised analogue controls, which have been designed to be more accessible than those in previous Fight Night titles.

Punching and blocking are now easier to get to grips with, but we do worry that the series could lose some of its organic feel and skill level for the sake of accessibility, and there's a danger of punches becoming too quick and snappy if a simple flick is all that's required.

I'm loving the demo of this game. The fighting feels like it has some real depth.

Agreed - tried fighting as Tyson vs. Ali and at first, I couldn't resist going in full brute force, but after a couple of replays found the need strategize a more concise plan of attack to even get a decision.

My wrist is so sore from playing this demo too much.

Gamestop has Fight Night 4 for $15. How much is FN4 like FN:Champion, anybody know? Is it a worthy investment?

I don't know, but I remember not liking the demo for FN4 as much as I'm liking this one. It may have been that it(FN4) felt too loose compared, (with regards to controls) to FN3, which I enjoyed pretty well. FN: Champion feels more like a balance between the two, IMO.
