Even if online competition doesn't interest you, Fight Night Champion is a great game that has a lot to offer. The story-driven Champion mode is an entertaining addition to the series, and once you get into the Legacy mode you might find that it's hard to put down your controller even after you've spent dozens of hours using the same fighter. And beyond those single-player modes there's a great deal of fun to be had with friends, re-creating memorable matchups and pitting great boxers from different eras against each other in fights that would no doubt have been fascinating in real life. The latest Fight Night might never be remembered as the greatest boxing game of all time, but for right now it's definitely the champion.

On croyait avoir atteint l'excellence avec Fight Night : Round 4 mais Electronic Arts nous prouve une fois de plus que, dans les jeux vidéo comme sur le ring, on peut toujours se dépasser. Réaliste, dynamique, bien équilibré, beau à pleurer, Fight Night Champion s'offre également le luxe de proposer un mode scénarisé très immersif et des fonctionnalités online inédites. Que demander de plus ?

Judged purely on its improvements (tweaked controls, better animation, create a fighter) it would be easy to dismiss Fight Night Champion as a typical sports sequel where a few minor touch ups are used to justify a new release, and it certainly is true that many features and elements have been refined. However what lifts it up from mere sequel status has to be the riveting new champion mode, a masterful and engaging tale that is unmatched in any sports simulator and alone makes Fight Night Champions worth purchasing. Thankfully the host of other game modes, competitive online multiplayer and selection of historical fighters also add to it to make this the most solid, stylish and satisfying boxing sim currently available. Ding ding.

Fight Night Champion is still the champion amongst boxing sims which may not be too difficult when you're alone, but it does it in style. The gameplay feels better than before and graphically it's still gorgeous. Only too bad that the concept suffers from a weak career mode. Combining the Legacy and Champion modes could deliver a perfect balance but that would need some more work from EA sports.

Das Beste an Fight Night Champion ist neben den gelungenen Online-Komponenten der neue Karrieremodus: Die Geschichte ist zwar vorhersehbar und zu linear, aber wird in hervorragenden Videosequenzen präsentiert, während die Kämpfe mit ihren verschiedenen "Levelzielen" und Herausforderungen enorm viel Abwechslung und dramatische Höhepunkte bieten. Wer mit den Kompromissen leben kann, die man bei EA zugunsten der Zugänglichkeit eingegangen ist, bekommt mit Fight Night Champion ein unterhaltsames Boxspiel, das vor allem zu zweit für viel Spaß im Ring sorgen kann. Wer sich dagegen mehr Anspruch und taktische Möglichkeiten wünscht, sollte besser beim Vorgänger bleiben, der im Vergleich zu Champion immer noch die packendere Boxerfahrung bietet.

Fight Night Champion is an involving experience and should be enjoyed by most boxing fans and it’s the best edition of the series so far. With a bit more polishing and a more engrossing ‘Legacy’ mode it could become the greatest of all time. However, as it is, Fight Night Champion is a definite two weight world champion in a division that isn’t at its best, but that’s no bad thing. Hopefully the next in the Fight Night series will continue this upwards progression to perfection.

But, that one issue overlooked, Fight Night Champion is a solid boxing game. It doesn’t do a very good job through the story mode at introducing newcomers to the mechanics of the game and it can quickly devolve into something that hardly resembles a “sweet science” when players aren’t sure what they’re doing, but once you get the hang of how the game works, it’s a thing of beauty. It controls flawlessly, is stunningly presented and the storyline, though cliché, really works to engross players, even those that don’t know anything about boxing. Fight Night Champion has some rough edges that must pull down the score, but it is still an enjoyable experience that I definitely recommend to interested players.
