Fight Night Round 3 Gameplay Movie 1

  1. When your opponent leans into that haymaker, it's a bone-crunching delight: Sweat sprays from his head, bloody spittle shoots from his mouthpiece, and his legs turn to Jell-O. Now that's the sweet science.
  2. But if you want a staggering multiplayer fight game that looks better than anything else on Xbox 360, get this.
  3. Fight Night Round 3 should be considered the first real sports game to grace the Xbox 360. EA’s other efforts were fine in areas, but it Fight Night Round 3 is the most complete next-gen sports game of the whole lot.
  4. This game could literally be re-released in mere months with sliders, higher difficulty modes and more options, ala Ninja Gaiden Black, and sell like hotcakes.

    I recommend picking it up, if only for the awesome multiplayer, deep Create a Boxer system, and smooth control. Even with the AI problems, this title is sure to give fans of the Sweet Science plenty of jaw breaking, rib crunching fun.
  6. It’s the best looking Xbox 360 game to date and the in-ring action is the Fight Night series' best ever.
  7. 60
    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.

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. Expand
