    Why must every boxing game be oriented towards early round KO's? If you want short bouts, do an Olympic style. Otherwise, if you want real, pro bouts, expect them to average 8 rounds!

    An flawed, overglorified tech demo with some of the most intrusive videogame advertisements in history. For $60 I can buy a week's worth of food at Burger King and I'd rather not see their stupid mascot gallavanting around while I'm trying to play a game.

    The graphics in this game are outstanding considering it is a very early release for the 360 and the controls are smooth, very quick and responsive. However the game lacks depth especially in the career mode.

However the game lacks depth especially in the career mode. In previous fight night titles players were able to change most aspects of there fighter including ring girls, ring entrance and entrance music but FNR3 does not let you do any of this. Also in previous fight night titles you were able to view this list of fighters rankings but this is not possible in FNR3. Now you must select and fight who the computer tells you. Also once you master the punch controls this game is very easy even on hard. I enjoyed this game but it seems very unfinished and could have been an absolute hit with a bit more time and thought.

    A fantastic sports title, but negligible improvements in the career mode and idiotic computer AI hold the game back from true greatness.
  2. Between the supreme visual polish and deep, excellent play, this is the uncontested champ.

    Head-and-shoulders above other EA Sports Xbox 360 launch games, and is the first game in the sports genre to evolve beyond the current generation, and is worth a splurge, even if just for a few hard hits.
