Plagued by imbalance, the Round 3 career can serve up over 50 bouts before one goes the distance. The new stun punch – a thunderclap of a haymaker – helps to ensure first to third round knockouts for the vast majority of fights. [Apr 2006, p.82]
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.
Of the bunch, this is the only one I played, but I liked it a lot. Made my boxer and commenced to laying waste to the AI on my way to obtaining belts in multiple weight classes. I didn't play online or anything because I don't like you and I'd probably get my ass whooped anyway, so I can't comment on that portion of it. If you are into going through people's stuff they don't want anymore while they are watching, you can probably get this for about 25 cents at a garage sale.
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
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
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.
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"
Fight Night Round 3 is a decent boxing game.
The gameplay is solid,with smart AI,good controls,and good balance.However,the judges will f*ck you over constantly in this game! I had 2 fights in career mode which I clearly won,but they gave the other guy the win,which was total **** game also lacks content,with a small number of fighters and career mode,and that's it.
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.
SummaryGo toe-to-toe with greats such as Ali, De La Hoya, Joe Frazier, Bernard Hopkins and Roy Jones. Outside of the ring, gamers can establish intense rivalries through pre-fight events putting purpose and passion behind every hit. Three new Impact Punches a la the EA Sports Haymaker keep gamers at the edge of their seat as players are only on...
