For me, an accelerated clock would help cut down the KO's and KD's alot. I would like to see the 3 minut round accelerate to about 2 min 15 secs and I would be happy and then a long laundry list of little tweaks here and there and the haymaker toned down a bit and I would be satisfied. FN for me is closer to being a very good game to me than it is to you and I can respect that. If you like VB, I am happy you found a game that you enjoy. I honestly would have tried VB2, but the videos scared me off and it was a large investment with the fliptop, etc if I didn't like the game. If it was a typical game for $40, I am sure I would have tried it.
I've played it for the Xbox. And I agree that VB2 is a costly investment. But if you ever get the chance to play VB2 take it. You sound like a serious boxing fan so it's a shame that you haven't had the chance to play VB2.
There are some good things that FNRd2 does, but others that have me scratching my head. Hopefully Rd3 corrects some of them.
Happy boxing! Cheers!

Trust me when I say that when you play it you'll never look at Fight Night ever again. Please give it a try and you'll be back here praising the game.

And to the other post about exagerrating the over abundance of knockdowns you're right when you said I was stretching the truth. However not by much. I've had an opponent on the mat 18 times before he finally stayed down. And flooring a guy 5-12 times is not uncommon on the harder levels.
Fight Night is to boxing what FIFA is to soccer. I'm waiting for the Winning Eleven of boxing. And for those that have played VB2 it's pretty close.
I'm in the same boat. I really have never seen what you're mentioning... I have had to KD a guy around 5 times for him to stay down.... but 12 times?

I can only scratch my head, as I've played the game on the high difficulty (only) and have never encountered that.

Regardless, I just don't agree that FN is the travesty you initially made it seem. It's not there, but it's pretty close...

The graphics are not the problem in Fight Night series. The controls are very good, but they need to add better strategy/AI and more realism. I hate how you have to know a guy down several times to beat him. It shouldn't always be like that. If they fix that, tweak the AI, add more real venues, a lot more boxers, HBO presentation, and expand on the dynsaty mode, they will have the perfect boxing game.

And I don't believe I've ever seen a fight where a guy will go down 25 times and it wasn't called or the guy continued to get up.
This game is much closer to Ready 2 Rumble than it is to a boxing simulation. No amount of great graphics will help that.

Victorious Boxers 1 is more realistic and that game is 5 years old.


ur right, i never really been sure wat EA is tryin to do with Fight Night. Its not a sim boxing game. Its hardly realistic. The controls and the whole way of the game, is fun and great. But its not really a sim boxing game. Its more of an arcade boxing game.


I think when Fight Night first came out, people were so awwed by the graphics and the controls, they just started calling it a great realistic sim boxing game. Its hardly realistic. They can even lock up like real boxing.


I wonder..........if they made it sim, would people still like it? I guess they could have an option where you play sim or arcade(the way it is).
