A fundamentally good, yet rather disappointing experience. Players looking for the real next generation boxing title are just going to have to wait until next year; while Fight Night: Round 3 looks great, it moves like a set of rusty gears, and has far too many balance issues to be an enjoyable experience online.
Other than the graphics, Fight Night Round 3 does very little to progress the boxing game series over its predecessors. It isn’t a total K.O. but does show that the series will have to work a little bit harder on newer features and glitches the next time around if it’s to avoid becoming stale.

The graphics have aged poorly,but the framerate never drops.
Sound design and soundtrack are decent.
Overall,Fight Night Round 3 is a good game held back by the BS decisions,subpar graphics,and lack of content.… Full Review »
