Why is it that every time there was a match between a white guy and a black guy, the white guy was always the one to be knocked out?

This is a game i might get on Xbox 360. The game looks great. In round 3 the game is verybasicbut this game looks quite challenging.

another one for my colecction, no matter what. i love boxing and this one looks way better than rd3 and the fight engine looks different. nice to have old character and young prospects. if you dont like it, it's simple dont buy it.

Apparently there is no option to use the face buttons for punching anymore.. :( IMO that kinda sucks, but I still will purchase this no doubt. Been playin' this series since Knockout Kings. BTW. Stop comparing this game to UFC 2009.... it's obvious there two different sports, so zip it.

I think the slow look is actual slo mo replay footage? I'm pretty sure this will be a fast boxing game when it comes out ;))

Looks like they concentrated on style(s) and not on the physical impact on the body as much.

Yeah The 100 yeard dash is where the real skill comes into play when compared to something like football where you run throw catch tackle and juke. Because is harder to do one thing then many all at once.....Wait thats not right at all.

Looks awesome to me, please stop comparing a Boxing game to UFC, totally different sports. Me personally, I prefer Boxing anyday, that's where real skills come into play.

Actually, slow is a bad way to describe...it just seems like chunky,awkward gameplay.No real punch impact and not at all smooth. And that doesnt look a thing like Tyson. Never liked this game series, probably shouldnt have even watched the vid, let alone comment....lol

to RQP, how can you compare 2 games when they're not even released yet? I see FN more as a sim fighting game, and UFC as a fun fighting game, I played its demo and the tactical part is hard to find, I fought vs. C.lydell and found myself overmastering him on both defense and offense the entire game, he gave me one kick and I was KO, and it felt and sounded like a kick alright, but I prefer a game that's based on skill and tactics. You're comparing Carmageddon with Grand Turismo

Yeah, it is weird, the jab,punch is so weak ... typical EA knows how to make graphics looks good but that's it. Marketing bluff ... they don't even know how to define a good game. Come on .. you bald man, that's a suck boxing you show on the video, it is like a fake punch. Each jab, does not seem to have a weight/momentum. Not going to buy this! Prefer UFC 2009 by a mile.

The executing of punching is really weird for me... sound like it was in Knockout Kings 2001... that game from EA was sux if compare it with KK 2000. Here in FNR 4, especcialy JABs - look like poor and not real ( 1st of all sure jab it isn't strong punch in real box like other, but i mean here jabs not look so STRONG as it should... its more look like some guy touch other guy with 1 finger). Some hooks are strange too... Most of shots in FNR4 look like your boxer PUSH other guy softly... Stop here. Did u heard me? PUSH!!! not HIT!!!.. This is sux!!! Just go to UFC2009 and check them punch hitting system and compare it with shots in FNR4... BIG difference isn't it? There punches is really look like TOUGH and realistics! About people out of rings (crowd)... 1st thing: where god damn they are looking for, if the both boxers are in the corner?... what a hell? crowd countinue look in middle of ring... funnny! why for? what is the action in middle of ring? may be 2 other shadow boxers punching in the ring in same time??? 2nd thing about crowd... its not live with action in the ring! nothing... its live with own life, i have feeling during watching them behaviour like they were bought by EA just do dance around during the match.... U know when i see it i dont believe in game realism... About boxer's texture and boxer's model... what it is? is it humen or some kind of dolls??? they move wierd and look not real with them extra-mega-muscles... (again and again compare with UFC 2009) Why im always compare it with UFC 2009? Because UFC set up new fight-game level... and this level now beat current view of FN4... So, like someone say here - FNR 4 may be another crap from EA -.- U know, sound like this game was creating not FOR GAMERs (like its should be) and i have feeling this game was created just to grab more money from fans... P.S. May be its just BETA ... and all stuff will be changed to good way... but as i know games from EA i have doubts :/ Im inlove & big fan of all FN series (started from KK2000), and that critics only wrote to make it better and u guys just try to make it worse...

I still play FNR3 and I can't wait to get my hands on this and UFC undisputed. I love reality based fighting games. They give you a better sense of pride when you beat the living hell out of your opponent.

i lik the 3rd fight night, but im not really into sports games that much. im a more mgs4, kz2, bioshock, dead space kinda gut. especially metal gear solid 4

I'm not much tracking this sport but. Graphics and moves look nice and all but they should put some newer fighters. It seems like there are fighters from golden age of American boks that is long passed. They should put some good Russian and Ukraine fighters to and maybe one from Croatia . They know what is good technique.

It seems like 3 had a better impact...it just doesn't have that same feel when I watch it... like it trys to take a step forward, but ultimatly fails... best comparison is THPS3 to THPS4... the change just felt wrong and the way the game felt kind of fell off even though it was a more robust idea they should have just started from scratch.

gonna be another crap game from EA. FNR3 looked alot better to me. the boxers in round 4 look like they took a swim in baby oil, they are way too shiny. the animation also is horrible and look unrealistic, look how they punch and move.. it's like they're robots. when punches are thrown you can't even see the impact except for the cinematic moments when a hit goes into slow motion. you can tell there wasn't any motion capturing in this game and animation was done all by hand. EA is horrible at animation. pay attention to when Ali shuffles his feet, he looks like he's moon walking in place. also look at nba live 09 and nba 2k9, in live players look like they slide across court when they're moving. in nba 2k9 the players plant their feet and move realisticly cause of motion capturing. they don't hand animate things like EA does in alot of their games.

Why can't every game for 360 be a good-looking as this?

lol @ people arguing over wich company is better. Unless you own stock in the company who gives a crap? Any way this looks nice. Good to see they put Kelly Pavlik in. I'm hoping Paul Williams makes an appearence as well. I love boxing games. I was pretty disappointed in Don King prize fighter. Hopefully they retool and keep up with Fight Night. The more boxing games the better

yeah 2k has the upper hand in NBA but. it is going the same road as EA i mean there isnt much of a difference betqean 2k8 and 9. Exept the graphics and some other stuff. Which EA usualy does. So if we see another uncomplete and not much changed game from 2k NBA 2k10. Then we will know that 2k is going the same road as EA. not upgrading almost anything and still making money. (Btw NBA 2k9 was still good. But only because it was good before. So nothing changed nothing lost. but you still have to expect something from 2k. And they didint bring anything.)

I really hope they added some kind of realistic stamina penalty for throwing haymakers. I mean come on, how many power punches can you really throw round after round. Oh and the race card...really? Please go watch the last 20 years of gaming adds and see how many dark skinned people got completely embarrassed by light skinned people. If you haven't noticed its because u weren't looking.

mack10...2K sports still has the best football game ever made. They also make the best basketball games. So I don't know what u talking about. Anyways, I can't wait for this game! Finally they put Tyson!
