If oversized men thumping each other until they can no longer stand is your idea of fun then chances are you already have the latest Fight Night title. If however you're a boxing fan but also the pragmatic type, who prefers to wait a while for their games in order to save the pennies then I hope you bought the game last month when Zavvi were selling it for a mere £17.95. But if you still don't have Fight Night 4 and are desperate to get your hands on a copy then you may want to visit Shop To who are offering the title for £5 less than anyone else at the moment at just £19.99.
If you are familiar with the premier boxing series then you will notice that it has been given a facelift for this, its 4th outing. The career mode has been altered, the control mechanics are different and a brand new physics system has transformed the moves. It has been greeted with highly favourable reviews, usually in or around the 80-85% region, and garnered praise for its good selection of playable boxers, good online play, great visuals and audio and fun fast-paced action.
I am one of those philistines who looks at boxing and sees nothing beyond the barbaric act of two men pointlessly punching each other. Perhaps I should try out Fight Night which apparently allows you to enter the boxer mindset, to discover that an awful lot of thought (how do they have enough braincells left?!) goes into each and every jab and there is a lot more to the sport than meets the untrained eye. I won't though.
