Due to a refined physics engine highlighting real-time bruising and flexing muscles, the streamlined yet involving Full-Spectrum Punch control, and the deep, though challenging Legacy mode that sports a detailed create-a-boxer, Fight Night Champion is the pinnacle of the franchise. If you plan on jumping in the ring for the first time or are coming back for your fifth rematch with over 50 licensed boxers including Ali, Tyson, Pacquiao, and the infamous "Butterbean," Champion is the best the sport has to offer, making it a worthy contender for your $60.

Boxing may not be the powerhouse it once was but movies like The Fighter reveal it still has a cultural relevance today. Champion mode pulls inspiration from the likes of Rocky and Raging Bull to craft a narrative around the sport that people still find engrossing. It’s the perfect path for the series to take and we can only hope the next Fight Night builds on this promise, telling more tales from the world of boxing.

For fans of Fight Night, everything they know and love about the series is still here, looking and controlling even better. For everyone else, the Champion mode is the game-changer, and it's hard to imagine anyone who is a fan of good storytelling not getting pulled in deep. Clichés or not, Fight Night Champion scores a KO.

Fight Night Champion is an impressive game and a superb addition to the Fight Night series, with the excellent Champion Mode offering fans an absorbing and entertaining story.
GameSpot (Mar 01, 2011)
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 ?

Fight Night Champion is a triumphant return for EA Sports stalwart boxing franchise that still has one of the best simulated fighting systems around as well as some great visuals. Champion Mode is a surprisingly involving new addition that actually makes you care about what happens to its protagonist, as he embarks upon his Rocky-esque journey. Ultimately then, Fight Night Champion is still the undisputed king of the ring.

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.

It's far from a revolution – much of the framework will be familiar to Fight Night fans – but as the best-looking and most technically accomplished game the series has yet produced, this evolution exceeds our expectations, without totally blowing us away. Fight Night Champion has both the guts and the glory, and if the online functionality compliments the excellent offline modes, then it's going straight to the top.
Power Unlimited (Apr, 2011)
Het is niet alsof EA slackt met zijn Fight Night games, want elke round is weer een stuk beter dan de vorige, en de Champion mode in dit deel is een idee dat grenst aan briljant. Maar het boksen zelf mag wat mij betreft na zoveel delen wel een stukkie uitgebreider, échter en spannender...

Like your mother, while you may have the odd tantrum with it, the fact that she’s doing it for your own good makes a difference. Sure, with Fight Night Champion you’ll be doing plenty of sulking in your room, but you’ll also come back to it and make amends. Legacy mode has a number of repetition problems, not just in the fighting itself, but in the training and stupid, stupid email system that no game has ever needed, but every developer insists on including. If you can give it the right amount of time, and are prepared for the “realism” of boxing, then this is a game with plenty of legs.
videogamer.com (Feb 23, 2011)
There's just not quite enough meat on Fight Night Champion's bones to recommend it to owners of previous games, however, and Champion mode itself is little more than a brief diversion you can bash through in an afternoon. The core mechanics still do a good job of imitating the sweet science, but EA could have done with a longer rest before getting back in the ring.
