Default Re: Fight Night Champion - Champion Mode Trailer

I've played it a bit, here are my thoughts.



The gameplay is great, and that's the most important part. There is a nice balance between simulation and arcade, which keeps the action fast and fun, while not being completely unrealistic. I would prefer if it were a bit slower and more sim... but I understand why they have to strike a balance. The controls are quick and responsive for the most part. Movement around the ring is a little slippery, but it's manageable.


The story mode is fun, and offers something new. You don't get to change/build your character, or make decisions, or anything like that. You essentially just go fight to fight, with some 30-60sec clips thrown in between to tell a story. There are some cool twists to fights though, like bare knuckle fights in prison, and different ways to win/lose fights. The story is raw dog so far which I love.



The career mode is good so far. Pretty straight forward, and plays a lot like UFC Undisputed. You go week to week choosing if you want train at different camps, rest, do promos... shit like that. The xp system is straight forward. You get xp points for fights and training and put them where you want. What I really like about the setup is that you have to choose your playstyle. For example, if you want to be a quick, outside, stick and move type fighter... then you're not going to be good fighting inside, throwing hooks and uppercuts... and if you try and fight like that, you'll probably get dropped. Also, they added bonuses to different attacks. For example, my first fighter is an outside fighter who uses a lot of jabs. I've put a lot of xp into my jab and now both my jab and body jab have a 20% chance to slow my opponents movement speed.



Overall, I would say it's the best Boxing game I've ever played. If you're fan of Boxing or combat sports, it's certainly worth the dough. I havent tried online yet, but they have a nice match / ranking system apparently and people are loving it from what I've heard.

I've gotten to the champion fight against Isaac Frost, but I can't take a punch from him at all. I know it says try to survive the first 2 rounds, but he's pretty hard to get away from.

What mode are you fighting him at?I was on pro and got past the first 2 rounds.Then you have to body punch him 75 times in the next 3 rounds never got past that part.I hit 75 once but i still had 25 seconds to go in the round and he caught me and i was out

Pro as well. Think I just gotta get a bit smarter with my blocking. I'd found every fight pretty easy up until that point, and knocked out every fighter except the one where you can only use your left hand, and that was an easy win too.

I just played the demo of Ali and Tyson and it looked sick. Played it like 10 times and i got kinda bored so now I'm having second thoughts. If im shelling out 60 bucks it better be a longass game like 2k is.

What the hell?

Fighting Frost again, survived the first 2 rounds pretty easily, then trainer told me to keep making body shots for the next 3 rounds, which I did with no trouble, and was probably just winning the fight. End of Round 5, it tells me game over...the **** is that?

Was I supposed to hit him a certain number of times? It didn't say that for me.

EDIT: It went back to Round 3 when I clicked retry. Guess I just gotta try and hit him harder and a few more times for the next 3 rounds and hope it doesn't say game over.

EDIT2: Knocked that ****er out! Woohoo!

EDIT3: As soon as I knocked him out, the game just went back to the Fight Night main menu, no achievement unlocked, no cool cutscene. What the hell was that? Is my game bugged? Or is it really that anti-climatic?
