    Fight Night round 3 is a boxing game developed by EA Chicago and published by ea sports, is this one worth picking up? or should you leave it in the bargain bin Gameplay Their are only a few game modes some being Career, Fight Now, and ESPN Classics In career mode you fight your way to the big title, train in between and try to make it big, fight now is what you would expect it to be you can just go fight
    espn classics, is where you attempt to relive classic boxing matches. From personal experience you will be spending most of your time in the career mode
    for that's where its at. The actual boxing mechanics in this game are impeccable
    you use the right stick to punch and the left stick to move while the face buttons do other things. How it works is you motion the right stick how you want
    to punch, for example if you want to throw a right jab you push the stick up towards the right side, its very deep and rewarding. 9/10 Presentation

    Fight Nigh round 3 looks beautiful even though its close to 6 years old now
    the fighters have great depth and you truly feel like you at a boxing event.
    The music fits well with everything and when you get hit hard, you can tell. The one complaint I have about the presentation is the announcers they don't have very many lines and can get very repetitive but it never gets to
    the point where you want to mute your tv. Other than that though its very nice
    7/10

    replayability

    Will you be playing fight night over again? well, I would like to think so I have
    had this game for a long time and I'm still coming back to it, the depth in the
    fighting is something fantastic and the career mode will have you coming back.
    8/10

    So in short this game is a great buy, if you haven't picked it up you can from
    your local game store for under 5 dollars usually and is most assuredly worth it

    overall rating 8/10 "Great"

    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.
