Fight Night 2004 User Reviews
You can change the control setting options and the auto recovery so you don't have to allign the images of the reffery. (SP!) The My Career setting is awesome.The bad:
It could have more ring girls. There may be a way to unlock more but I have not figured that out yet. But I can't think of much more that's bad.Summary:
Once you have adjusted to your favorite control options create your own boxer. This is an incredible feature that I hope continues to more games. It allows you to be in the game. The boxer I created looks just like me! Well a thinner more atletic me but it is unmistakeably me, my name's on my boxing shorts.
Start as a feather weight and work to improve your boxer's skills, agilty, stamna, power, speed, chin and body then work your way up in weight class.
As you earn prize money go to the Ring Store and buy cool gear for you and your crew including the ring girls. You can buy additional cannon...
Online play, good array of legendary fighters, and a lengthy career mode.The bad:
Some partial slow-down in spots, Career Mode could use a few more options, and the commentary could use some fine tuning.Summary:
I guess a change in name for EA meant faster game speed, because this is the fastest boxing title from EA to date. Previous boxing games from EA felt like your fighters were throwing punches under water, but Fight-Night does a decent job to remedy that. Although theirs room for improvement with regards to game speed, it is a vast upgrade this time around.
I enjoy the exhibition mode and it makes for some great fights with friends. Nothing like Ali vs. Roy Jones Jr. However the depth to this game lies in the career mode, here you get a chance to create your ideal fighter, and literally work...
It looks cool and the choice of fighters are good.The bad:
Those darn anaolog controls make it difficult to master the moves and punches.Summary:
Honestly if you are accustomed to using the buttons to make moves this game will dissapoint. There are some button moves but they are slow and difficult to get in the "Groove" with. The R1 makes you duck and body punch (punches are done with the Right Analog stick), the R2 is the "Head Butt" and "Low Blow" illegal moves. After three you are disqualified. It can be turned off. The L1 button is used to block and the L2 button throws a special punch.
After playing other fight games I had become used to pressing the "square" which in this game causes a taunt. That got me decked a few times.
