Fight Night Round 4Finally, after three years in the making another round Fight Night is with us. The
boxing wilderness in the gaming industry has had us all wondering at times if the
sport has been abandoned, especially with the rise of UFC making its way onto the latest generation of consoles. In this latest edition EA have pulled off something I've not seen since Codemasters rush job of their boxing title on the old console in 2002 - that of the inclusion of Iron Mike Tyson. And, what a mean rendition of the legend too. Infact the 48 boxers in the game all look superb. Muhammad Ali, Roberto Duran, Lennox Lewis and Carlos Monzon are all there together with their own
distinctive boxing styles, stances and stinging haymakers should they decide to lay on the pain. If your favourite fighter isn't included, no prob.

Fight Night Round 3Since the release of the Fight Night Round 3 demo on the XBox 360 Marketplace, next generation gamers and fight fans have been eager to get their hands on EA Sport’s latest instalment of the series. FNR3 certainly looks the part graphic wise. Detail levels on each fighter look fantastic. While each genuine fighter has been masterfully rendered to resemble Oscar De La Hoya, Bernard Hopkins and Joe Frazier, randomly generated opponents also look great. If your lucky enough to have a HD television or to have got your hands on a VGA HD cable to allow for use with a TFT PC monitor the spray of sweat as punches land and camera lighting effect really show what the hardware in the latest consoles can do. So how do it play? The first thing you’ll notice is the speed of gameplay... FULL REVIEW

Boxing games on the console have been thin on the ground over the last couple of years. Codemasters, Mike Tyson's Heavyweight Boxing frustrated the hell out of gamers and while Rocky boasted superb visuals and gameplay it lacked what fight fans have been crying out for years - a fully engaging boxing world with dynamic boxer rankings and career management. So when EA Sports announced their shift of focus from the Knockout Kings button masher to the more strategy focused Fight Night 2004, it was welcome news to console owners. The most dramatic change has been to the controls in the ring. EA Sports have introduced what they call Total Punch Control.. FULL REVIEW

Mike Tyson Heavyweight BoxingWin or lose, the name Iron Mike Tyson will always prick up ears. Perhaps that is why Codemasters picked up the Tyson licence to use him in their new boxing title. With Iron Mike and fifteen other top heavyweights on board, Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing certainly looked on paper to be a certain winner, especially with competition relatively sparse and limited at best...

Knockout Kings 2002Having played earlier versions, I was excited to get the chance to review EA Sports newest installment of their Knockout Kings series on my new XBox console monster. Once the soundtrack and movie are through, you get presented four main modes featured in the game, Play Now, Exhibition, 8 man Tournament Mode and Career Mode - I'll get back to them later. Let me first focus on the game in the ring. The moment Richard Steele barked 'Box!' and the camera zoomed in on the action I knew I was in for a treat... FULL REVIEW

Title Fight 2001 for the PCComputer boxing sims have been few and far between over the years.
