So there you have it, Fight Night Round 4 can honestly claim to be what Mike Tyson once quoted many years ago, "...I'm the best ever, my style's impetuous, my defense is impregnable, I wanna eat his children..." Well, okay, maybe not the last part, but damn if this isn't a great boxing game! If you are a fan, you are doing yourself a disservice not picking up a copy.

A superb boxing title that is a must have for your collection. Even if you don't like boxing you will be hard pushed to find faults in this A+ title.

There is still room for improvement for the Fight Night franchise, but just like Round 3 did, Round 4 elevates the series to a new high, and sets a bar that no other boxing series is close to approaching. It’s faster, more dynamic, and more fun than the previous offering, and it does a better job of emulating its sport than just about any other game out there. There were concerns whether EA Canada could improve on the success of the last game, but luckily for us, they managed to surpass EA Chicago’s efforts in just about every way that matters. It’s a great single-player experience, an even better multiplayer experience, and the best boxing game in the world.

While Fight Night Round 4 is easily the best boxing game of 2009 and also markedly better than its superb series predecessor, the game's perfectly balanced blend of challenge and excitement, relentless action, intuitive controls, jaw-loosening graphics, and fulfilling career mean it's the best example of "the sweet science" to ever grace home consoles.

I’ve got to say if you’re a fan of the previous Fight Night titles or even boxing in general, you really should pick up this title. FNR4 is the most realistic video game portrayal of the sweet science to date as well as being incredibly enjoyable to play. It has improved upon the previous Fight Nights in every way imaginable, even after the series switched developers from EA Chicago to EA Canada. But as you can tell, this new team definitely knew what they were doing, so make sure to break yourself away from UFC 2009 Undisputed long enough to check out Fight Night Round 4.

Final Words? EA Sports have created a worthy successor to the franchise with improved graphics, refined and entertaining gameplay that will have you boxing the absolute living daylights out of each other. Whether you want a career or just a quick game here and there, this boxing title is varied enough to encompass all your sports action.

Round 4 is all about revolution through detail. Its incredibly accurate physics system doesn’t just set a new bar for boxing games, but for all games across all genres. Newton’s laws of motion haven’t mattered this much in a game since Pong, and bare-chested men haven’t looked this good in a game since Cho Aniki. Boxing may be overshadowed these days by flashier MMA competitions, but Fight Night Round 4 proves that boxing is anything but obsolete.

Being a boxing fan, this game is clearly made for me. But if you're not a fan of the sweet science then this game will probably not turn you around. The team at EA Canada have completed a very difficult task: Fight Night Round 4 not only matches its predecessor, but improves upon it and has reclaimed it's title as the best boxing game in the world.

Though not earth-shatteringly revolutionary, FNR4’s additions to its Legacy Mode, greater cohesiveness and focus of its controls and enhanced pseudo-realism has made it the definitive boxing experience on both the current-gen consoles. Despite it not making the splash it did in its last outing inside the ring, Fight Night Round 4 offers more than enough visceral, brutal action for casual gamers and boxing fans alike delivering its promises with a strong left jab and a punishing right hook. The franchise has proven itself to be one of EA’s long standing highlights and has achieved longevity through the brevity of its appearances, and this, this is something one should much prefer over a Fight Night Round 2010 – because we really can’t imagine ploughing through 2,010 rounds with the likes of Ali and Tyson.

Fight Night Round 4:stä on vaikea löytää huonoja puolia. Toki jotkut vannovat edellisen osan nimiin, mutta uskon, että tällaiset pelaajat ovat vähemmistössä. Fight Night Round 4 on loistava nyrkkeilypeli. Kun vielä uratilan pienet ongelmat saadaan korjattua seuraavana versioon, on vaikea kuvitella, miten peliä voi enää parantaa. Seuraava osa kuitenkin ilmestyy näillä tiedoilla vasta vuonna 2011, joten Round 4:n parissa on aikaa viihtyä.

As a boxing fan Fight Night Round 4 delivers in all the areas that I was looking for it to improve on. It exceeds Fight Night Round 3 graphically by so much that it’s amazing to think how beautiful everyone thought Round 3 was in 2006. The fluid total punch control takes some getting used to, but turns the game into a more clear simulation of the sweet science instead of just a button masher, and the various modes add depth and value to the game making it not just a must have for boxing fans, but a must have for sports fans.

"Fight Night Round 4" é um espetacular jogo de boxe, provavelmente o melhor já desenvolvido. O sistema de combate é bastante completo, com uma resposta eficiente de comandos e boa profundidade. Os modos de carreira também funcionam bem, principalmente pela possibilidade de jogar com lendários lutadores, ainda que alguns treinamentos pareçam mal acabados e a inteligência artificial não surpreenda. Com visuais realistas impressionantes, com direito a deformações em tempo real e expressões variadas dos pugilistas, é um jogo obrigatório para entusiastas do esporte.

There is no doubt however that it will appear fully to fans of the previous title, and fans of the sport in general as it does an exceptional job of recreating the spectacle in all its glory. EA Sports have certainly done a great job at providing a game that fully encompasses the lights and glory of boxing.

I am happy to report that Fight Night Round 4 is the complete package. The game has improved in every area, and has even gone as far as exceeding expectations in terms of the improvements in the gameplay. If you are a fan of boxing, or of the series, you would be crazy not to go out and purchase this game.

While it's not without its flaws, Fight Night Round 4 is still one of the most entertaining games of the year, no matter what gaming category you think it belongs in.

Xbox 360GamePro (US)
Fight Night Round 4 lacks some of the wow factor of its predecessor, but it builds upon the strengths of Round 3 and corrects most of its weaknesses. Three years is a long time to wait for a sports sequel, but Round 4 is an excellent and necessary upgrade for all Fight Night fans, and it reasserts the series as the (relatively) uncontested titleholder across all simulation-style boxing games.

Despite the uphill difficulty curve, repetitive commentary, and long loading times, Round 4 is a force that topples its mind-blowing predecessor in every category. You will get punched in the face, and you will love it.

Going back to those who want to see the sport made illegal, ironically Fight Night Round 4 may be the best argument for banning boxing yet. After all, when a game can get this close to the fluid, organic technicality of the real thing, why does anyone need to get hit in the face?

To summarise, Fight Night Round 4 is a game I’ve already lost hour after hour to, and it still has me wanting even more - in fact I’m sitting here wondering what on earth I’m typing this for when I could be playing it. It’s a deep multi-layered game that boxing fans absolutely should not miss out on, and even if you find boxing a little distasteful, you can’t deny that it’s one heck of a game.

If you're into boxing you're going to love Fight Night Round 4. The physics-based fighting is simply brilliant, the career mode will last you an age and the online functionality is solid. If you're not into boxing Round 4 is simple to learn, so you could still become the next Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali with a little practice. It's not perfect, mainly down to a slightly soulless career mode, but it's still a significant step up over Round 3 and more or less an essential purchase.

Sul versante online non c'è molto da dire: l'unica rassicurazione che possiamo farvi è che, in mancanza di lag e simili problemi tecnici, le modalità multiplayer del gioco rappresentano quella particolare spezia, capace di dare un aroma in più ad una pietanza già incredibilmente saporita. Arrivare ad imporsi quale campione del mondo a seguito di estenuanti sfide in rete potrebbe senz'altro rivelarsi un validissimo motivo per tenere a lungo il gioco dentro la console. Non è nostra politica utilizzare mezzi voti, ma stavolta non posso fare a meno di suggerirvi di aggiungere un ulteriore mezzo punto al numerino posto qui sotto, che già rasenta il perfect score. Fatevi forza e siate pronti a salire sul ring, non ve ne pentirete.

On the negative side, the game (despite a speed increase over previous installments) still runs a bit on the slow side, and most of the punches feel like love taps. We also suggest you crack the knuckles before playing, since maneuvering the left stick to move and the right stick to throw punches (in combination with the triggers) cramps the hands. Otherwise, Fight Night Round 4 is a beautiful and bloodthirsty representation of boxing, as well as a superb visual showpiece for either console.

Fight Night Round 4 es el mejor juego de boxeo de la historia y uno de los mejores juegos deportivos de los últimos años. Es una pena que haya tan pocos modos de juego y que, concretamente, el modo carrera sea tan malo. Porque todo lo demás va más allá de la excelencia. Si lo que quieres es jugar por internet o contra tus amigos haz un puñetazo encima de la mesa y cómpralo. A no ser que seas medio hippie y detestes el boxeo es prácticamente imposible que no te guste.

Fight Night Round 4 is the complete package with all the modes you could hope for, excellent gameplay and amazing visuals. The new controls greatly enhance the gameplay, making it a more fluid and realistic than ever, and although it's not quite a perfect package in the offline component, the online stability and satisfaction of playing another person one on one really makes up for it. This is a perfect game for big boxing buffs (and indeed for fighting game fans in general), so you should step into the ring with it just as soon as you can.

Xbox 360Worth Playing
All told, Fight Night Round 4 is a solid game, and it's more than just a rebranding of the franchise. The physics have been tightened, the create-a-boxer improved, the sound updated, and the level of detail is through the roof. Fight Night Round 4 is the kind of game that stays in a gamer's collection for years because of the replayability. The ability to build your own welterweight through heavyweight fighter allows a huge range of options, from quick and nimble to slow and devastating. If it weren't for the slightly limited boxer creator options, the occasional wonky physics action and announcing that eventually grows stale, this would be a near-perfect game. As it is, it's still one of the best titles to come out in years and is a must-have for any boxing, fighting, mixed martial arts or sports simulation fan.

Overall FNR4 improves over its already fantastic predecessor in nearly every way. The fact of the matter is you won't find a better boxing game on the market. If you're a fan of the Sweet Science, you owe it to yourself to pick this game up. Hopefully some of the minor flaws that the game still features will be ironed out in the next version, but as it stands you'll have a blast floating like a butterfly, and stinging like a bee.

Fight Night Round 4 has raised the bar from the previous instalment. The new and improved mechanics are fantastic, adding some much needed depth and strategy to the game and combining it with intuitive controls that anyone should be able to get to grips with. Whether you’re playing online or off, the art of playing the game is sure to please, it’s just a shame it comes undone when you have to deal with needlessly confusing and impotent menu systems that could have been easily streamlined for better use. Regardless, if you’re looking to play with friends or take on the world there aren’t many better fighters out there. This is a sure-fire knockout.

With the features around the boxing polished but lacking in personality, it's left to the in-ring action to provide the canvas onto which blood and sweat are poured to create images that will live long in the memory, and without doubt this is where the game's mastery lies. Fight Night Round 4 manages to deliver boxers and fights so convincing that they're realer than Evander 'The Real Deal' Holyfield, and at almost every point where the game could have become shallow and repetitive, its subtleties shine through to such an extent that you don't need to look at any other real world fighting games to find the greatest - the champ is undoubtedly here.

Fight Night Round 4 can easily be described as “the most accessible and yet challenging boxing game ever created”. The fighting mechanics have been revamped and refined to please hardcore boxing gamers but EA Canada has also found a great way to make the game incredibly less frustrating to newcomers as well. Yes, the online matchmaking world remains a daunting place to be however what the game has to offer besides that makes up for it. If you grew tired of FN Round 3, this new chapter in the Fight Night series is definitely worth the upgrade.

The latest Fight Night pushes hard to deliver a game that feels realistic and authentic to the sport while also being extremely playable, and offering plenty of staying power.

If you enjoy a good one-on-one battle, Round 4 definitely deserves your attention.

Despite all these series elements that have changed—some for the worse and some for the better—Fight Night Round 4 remains an awesome, visceral experience, especially when enjoyed against a human opponent.

EA Sports has managed to turn the fight game into the science it has long been proclaimed to be through the use of the new control mechanics and counterpunch system. Graphically, the game is stunning, and while there are a few stumbles along the way, nothing truly detracts from the strategic enjoyment one gets from this game. This is a wonderful step-up for the franchise.

Everything from the mechanics, to the value, the fun, and to the stunning visuals will not disappoint fans of both this game franchise, as well as fans of the sport.

Fight Night Round 4 has evolved positively compared to its predecessor. The controls feel very intuitive, the game seems less scripted, the AI made big improvements and the gameplay is very much ok. I doubt the game will appeal to more people than UFC 2009 Undisputed but this is of course also due to the small market of boxing fans. However, if you're looking for a pure boxing title where realism and depth are central then this is your game.

With Fight Night Round 4, EA have delivered what is a pretty impressive boxing simulaton title. Aside from the relatively steep learning curve, awkward punching system and inability to map punching to the face buttons; the game delivers on almost every other front. With a bit of tweaking, the next in the series may actually blow our minds, quite literally.

Aside from the modes, you’ll find the best boxing experience in gaming in the ring. Punches sound and look great, fighters move fantastically well with muscles flexing and blood flowing and spattering from cuts, and if you want a boxer that isn’t included in the original roster of more than 50 (including Mike Tyson for the first time since Punch-Out!!), you can use Photo GameFace to put them (as well as yourself) in the game. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a cool replay editor that lets you create clips of you rendering people’s faces unrecognizable. I have my issues with Fight Night Round 4 – and so will you – but when you get down to it FNR4 is just a great all-around videogame experience.

Ja, Fight Night Round 4 ist etwas ganz Besonderes: Mit seinem dynamischen Kampf- und Kontersystem, den lebensecht modellierten und hervorragend animierten Akteuren sowie der packenden Atmosphäre holt man sich die ganz großen Boxarenen und die Faszination dieses Sports ins heimische Wohnzimmer! Da können auch kleine Macken in der Steuerung und Physik sowie der extrem öde präsentierte Karrieremodus nicht verhindern, dass EAs vierte Runde die bisher beste Boxsimulation bietet, die man momentan finden kann.

Dicho simple y llanamente, Fight Night Round 4 es el mejor juego de boxeo hasta la fecha. En cierta medida, la evolución con respecto a Round 3 no es tan importante como algunos se esperaban, pero ha cambiado y pulido los aspectos importantes para conseguir un mejor resultado. Faltan por pulir algunos detalles en el modo principal de juego, y algo más de variedad de modos, pero esto no quita que estemos hablando de un muy buen título. Un simulador profundo como pocos pero, al mismo tiempo, asequible y fácil de dominar, en gran medida gracias a un gran sistema de control. A esto hay que sumarle la espectacularidad técnica, el soberbio editor de personajes y el siempre agradecido modo online. Sin lugar a dudas, se trata de un juego ideal para los amantes del deporte, y también apto para aquellos que quieran iniciarse en el género.

Fight Night Round 4 undoubtedly brings boxing games to the next level. The boxers actually feel a bit different, the strategy and mastery is more complex, and the controls and counterpunch system mostly have a satisfying flavor rather than a frustrating one. The fights can be tests of endurance, like real boxing, so those who prefer a more casual or beginner-friendly game should check out the demo first. For those interested in the simulation of boxing and are willing to put in the time to get good at it, Fight Night Round 4 puts up an impressive performance.

Fight Night Round 4 provides exactly what I wanted - with only a few caveats. The training could be better. The load times could be shorter. The “lucky punch” could be adjusted. However, those are relatively minor points in an overall good, solid boxing game.
82
Xbox 360Console Monster
The whole experience was a bit of a back-and-forth of opinions, but only because Round 3 set such a precedent. Some of the changes to gameplay that EA have employed have made the simple boxing fun more of a chore, but the graphics and sound set a brilliant standard for future games, and the online mode is a highly enjoyable new face in this iteration's crowd of new features. Looking at Fight Night Round 4 as a whole, it is definitely a great title, very worthy of a purchase. Good for when friends come round or for a quick burst of boxing action just as it suits as part of your normal gaming diet, FNR4 will offer many hours of fist-throwing fun-times.

Xbox 360Game Chronicles
But despite my own inflexibilities the simple fact is that Fight Night Round 4 is still the best boxing game available for next-gen gamers (which includes PS3 gamers this time), and with a fun online experience and the challenging World Championship mode, there is probably more fun to be had after the career than during. Sadly, I cannot score it higher than Fight Night Round 3 because I just don’t see three years’ worth of innovation, and many of the things that have changed aren’t necessarily for the better, at least for this up and coming heavy weight contender.

Xbox 360Game Positive
Fight Night Round 4 is obviously a game that was developed with a focus on the action between the ropes. The boxing is excellent, and provides an adrenaline rush that can be appreciated even by those who have almost no interest in the sport. It is disappointing that the legacy mode is shallow, because single player enthusiasts will likely spend most of their time there. That said, the superficial nature of Fight Night's single player game modes is overshadowed by excellent presentation values, great multiplayer, and absolutely stellar boxing.

Fight Night Round 4 is easily the best boxing game out. Graphically and technically it's unbeatable and it's absolutely an achievement. In terms of gameplay - well, just as Tony Hawk pundits all got used to the FlickIt control system, people will learn to deal with Total Punch Control. I don't like it, and I shouldn't have to, but with everything else the game manages it's forgivable. I mean, heck, they let Mike Tyson box again, and he bit a guy's ear off. All they did was rob me of a playable control interface and make my character look too handsome.

Możliwość używania przycisków do wyprowadzania ciosów zostanie dodana dopiero w DLC, a tryb Legacy jest zupełnie niezbalansowany i dodatkowo utrudniany przez nieprzemyślany sposób rozwoju boksera. Mimo to, gra się w to naprawdę dobrze i jeżeli przymknąć oko na kosmiczny refleks sztucznej inteligencji, to można zatonąć w świecie bokserskich legend na długi godziny. Gwarantują to znane nazwiska na liście dostępnych zawodników oraz wspaniała oprawa audiowizualna. No i przede wszystkim bardzo dobry, głęboki system walki, tylko czekający na to, by odkryć jego wszystkie zawiłości. Dodatkowo biorąc pod uwagę brak konkurencji dla Fight Nighta, śmiało możecie zastąpić coraz starsze Round 3 tegoroczną odsłoną serii.

We can’t recall the last time we frothed over sweaty topless men, or were so engrossed with slipping the jab. As expected, Fight Night Round 4 is the best boxing game available, and fans keen to get their uppercuts on with other fellow humans should bulldoze their way into the nearest game store and pillage a copy immediately. Boxing enthusiasts just need to approach the single-player mode with a grain of salt, if at all, and keep all appendages crossed for some classic fighters to be released via DLC. This is one ring where all contenders should count themselves in.

Whatever problems the game may have are peripheral. The action in the ring is never short of brilliant. For fans of the sport it really does represent a loving recreation of the skills and strategies required for victory - and reservations about the role of counter-punching aside - Fight Night Round 4 is really very good indeed.

Net zoals dat een heavyweight- en featherweight-kampioen in vrede naast elkaar kunnen leven, is er in deze wereld ook plaats voor Fight Night Round 3 én Round 4. Die laatste tilt het boksgenre niet per definitie een treetje hoger, maar wel eentje opzij, met een hogere focus op realisme en authenticiteit. Voor fans van deze topsport en haar legendes een waardig besluit dat heel goed uitpakt. Iedereen die het niet erg vindt op realisme in te leveren voor een flinke dosis spektakel, die kan uiteindelijk nog altijd het tijdloze en oudere broertje in zijn console steken. Het ontbreken van constante barrages van echt volle beuken is namelijk zo hier en daar toch wel een gemis.

EA Sports Fight Night Round 4 stands as arguably the best boxing game available on next generation consoles. The visuals are simply stunning and it represents the most real-to-life boxing game available. That being said, the career mode is lengthy and the training system is somewhat flawed. Newcomers to the franchise will find the learning curve steep while veterans may not fall in love with FNR4 as they did with Round 3. At the end of the day however Fight Night Round 4 is a worthy addition to your Xbox 360 library.

Whichever way you play Fight Night Round 4, it's an intense, heart-rattling experience that gets more rewarding the more time you invest in learning the nuances. With incredible attention to detail, technical achievements are more than mere eye candy and a deeper, more rewarding fighting system than ever before, it's an essential purchase for boxing fans and fighting game aficionados.

Fight Night Round 4 is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world as far as boxing sims are concerned and arguably the most visually stunning sports game on the market. While a distinct lack of content in the single-player game and some fairly repetitive boxer AI does tarnish an otherwise faultless offering, it's still a must have for boxing fans and well worth a punt for anyone else with a passing interest.

Fight Night Round 4's greatest strength is that while it's accessible and relatively easy for newcomers, it can also be challenging and rewarding for pugilism perfectionists. It's unfortunate that online matches are being dominated by players who are mindlessly spamming punches rather than fighting realistically, because on those occasions that you do meet someone who's playing with some finesse it really is a lot of fun. Stepping into Fight Night Round 4's ring is definitely recommended if you have any interest in the sport whatsoever, just be aware that not everyone you come up against will be fighting in the spirit of the Queensbury rules.

The best boxing sim ever gets even better, with stunning graphics and immersive, if controversial, controls.

Fight Night Round 4 is absoluut de beste bokstitel tot dusver. De besturing werkt perfect en het ziet er allemaal mooi uit. Koop deze game en maak je klaar voor wat harde klappen in de ring.

Im Kern ist Fight Night Round 4 ein Traum für jeden Wohnzimmer-Boxer. Optisch wirken die Kämpfe äußerst realistisch, die Sportler gleichen den Originalen. Die Steuerung ist durchdacht und lässt Raum für gut getimte Konter und Angriffe, auch wenn sie nicht immer optimal reagiert. Vor allem gefällt uns, dass Blocken nun wirklich etwas bringt, weil die Trefferzonen dadurch realistisch klein werden.

„Fight Night: Round 4“ ist auch dieses Jahr wieder das wahrscheinlich beste Box-Spiel, das in den Handel kommen wird. Unzählige Verbesserungen sowie nicht zu viele Veränderungen im Spielgeschehen peppen die Game-Experience absolut auf. Schade nur, dass es viel zu einfach ist, an die Spitze zu kommen.

There really isn’t much more to say on it. The near-perfect physics are welcome, and watching an opponent’s glove glance of the side of your head because you weaved in time, and therefore causing little or no damage, never gets old. The facial reactions have also been tempered a little adding authenticity, and although the show-mo of a knockdown does show ripples from the impact on the face of the opponent, it now only looks like they’re in an wind tunnel when you pull off a haymaker. Solid online play and brilliant friend play makes this one for the collection, even if the career mode is inherently flawed and can be spammed to complete.

But none of this solves the problem of the career mode being a huge source of frustration. The AI fighter profiles are good and the boxing itself looks great, but the counter system, annoying training mini-games, and uneven fighter strength when taking on the real-life licensed boxers really saps the fun out of the career mode after the first ten or so fights. There are flashes of great challenge and satisfying outcomes in there, but once you get a ways into the Legacy mode, they're too few and far between to make it worth suffering through the more aggravating fights.

We recommend the campaign mode to learn, but Fight Night has always been one of the best games to have a few mates around to play. 7.5 from me.

Try FNR4 if you’re looking for a good boxing game or want to experience the glory of current generation pugilism all over again. It’s worth it. Just don’t venture online with wide eyes and innocence. You’ll be rocked.
