About Fight Night Round 4

Featuring a re-written gameplay engine, EA Sports' Fight Night Round 4 will add a variety of fighting styles and boxer differentiation to authentically emulate the greatest fighters of all time. Pressure your opponent with the brawling inside style of young Mike Tyson, bobbing and weaving to set up powerful hooks and uppercuts. Capitalize on Muhammad Ali's reach, hand speed and fleetness of foot to bewilder your opponent with lightning fast jabs and straights from the outside. For the first time in history, EA Sports' Fight Night Round 4 gives you the opportunity to pit these legendary heavyweights against one another and name a true champ.

Summary

Fight Night Round 4 is not perfect, but it's the best simulation of the technical and strategic elements of boxing in any game to date.

We like

  • The fighter variety and excellent A.I.
  • The superb graphics, animation, and physics
  • Most of Legacy Mode, including its options

We dislike

  • The mundane details in Legacy Mode
  • The pointlessly difficult training mini-games
