    This is better than punching someone in the face for real! Knockdowns are so funny. i love punching people as they are falling down. you can really lay the hurt on!

    The most fluid, fun feeling controls of any boxing game i have ever played. total punch control should be called total boxer control. it is that good!! a must buy! i have it on both PS2 and Xbox!

    Fight Night rules the ring! Best boxing game ever, hands down. Rocky series might as well throw in the towel. Comparing the two games is like comparing Roy Jones in a fight with sylverstor stallone. No Contest!!!

    Fight Night is awesome. Very quickly I learned that it is impossible to get up off the mat when you get knocked down, I still haven't figured it out yet. It is unbelievably addictive. I couldn't stop playing when I first got it. Pummeling your opponent to the floor as he is falling is a great addition.

    For the most part, a great game. New punching system is awesome once mastered and the graphics and animation rule. Fought my way to the top, won my first title...defended it once, then my boxer I worked so hard to mold was forced to retire! Needs more things to buy with the millions you earn.

  1. The control system may be so new and fun that it's masking some of the game's problems. If so, then so be it for now because all we can do is love hitting this way.
  2. Offline play is extremely polished, and worth price of admission alone. I could not make that statement without Total Punch Control, as it makes the game even more challenging. Online is a great bonus, but it seemed rather rushed near the end.

    The graphics and control system are almost worth the price of admission all by themselves -- it's rare to find a sports game have this much pick-up-and-play addiction in this age of sim-oriented titles.
