Something I can't understand from such a lone-franchise with so much potential to compete with the best of em when it comes to EA Sports. I touched on this franchise before, but for different reasons, I'm not sure what really, it was a while back. Anyway, it's a new year, and I'm looking forward to what's new from the new Fight Night Game when it drops. If you ask me, the only thing that stood out in previous FN Champion is the graphics. The whole motioning and phantom punches that can even K.O. u with one shot (or should I say, no shot) turned me off with that game online, to the point where if this next one don't impress, I'm calling it a career with the boxing games. More to my Point though.

A friend of mine tried to explain to me the reason why MORE stars in this sport won't take part in the game (FLOYD among others). He said "with games like UFC, Madden, NBA all operated under 1 brand, and each Boxer is his own brand BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. I get that, but still I don't see why fighters even treat opportunities at gaming exposure like a negotiation to a super-fight. You put the name of all the stars or potential stars you can name today on the disk, put Floyd face on the cover and it'll sell out like Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained. All fans and gamers alike jus wanna match dream fights with there favorites and what we get for it is the same non sense we see from Top Rank & GBP's rivalry. Honestly, Is there no logic in seeing your own image and style, promoted on a game that can pay you in more ways than 1? Sheesh! Hopefully this upcoming game can keep the fighters they already have while adding more faces like Mayweather, Ward, Martinez, Broner, Froch, Direll, Mares, Rigo, Matthysse, Chavez Jr., the list goes on.

In my opinion, Fight Night got worse and worse. Much like NBA Live, instead of just improving the graphics and adding details, they changed the entire gameplay mechanics and ruined it for me. I absolutely hate the training. I also hate that its almost like youre penalized if you try to be a pure boxer. I know one punch can changed everything, but realistically, when you are just outboxing a guy all night long, you usually win. Plus the fighter ratings werent accurate. There should never be a point where Paulie Malinaggi is stunning you with one shots. The game was better in the PS2 days if you ask me.
