    The bottom line is that if you are a boxing fan, and especially a Fight Night fan, Fight Night Champion is a must have app. The controls are outstanding, the boxer selection will please any boxing fan, and the ability to create your own boxer and start your own career is gold.

    Featuring outstanding graphics, crisp sound, intuitive controls, and heart-pounding action, Fight Night Champion is easily the best boxing game on the iOS platform.

    Without question, Fight Night Champion is the best boxing game on the App Store right now. EA nails the touch controls, giving players of all skill levels the tools needed to launch withering haymakers as well as block incoming punches.

    The best boxing game so far in my opinion. It might not be as fully featured as some of the competition, but as the old saying goes, it's 'quality not quantity' that matters. And with both great presentation and gesture controls this is the closest you'll get to big boy console boxing.

    I would say that EA has landed a knockout blow to the competition, but that would probably result in actual violence against my person, so I won't. Anyway, it's good. You should get it.

    Exhibition matches eventually get old, and Legacy lacks an addictive hook. For the money, though, Fight Night Champion is one of the most impressive iPhone games we've seen, and multiplayer (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth) should keep you punching for several hours, providing you find someone else with the game.

    Superb execution on the presentation components notwithstanding, Fight Night Champion deserves to be stripped of any crown due to poor planning on controls and the skimpy set of modes available.
