The boxing itself is perfect I would like to see the out of boxing career mode more beefed up, to give you more of a "Every-Fight-Counts" feeling. It doesn't matter what EA does next because I'll buy it anyway, but a career mode with more depth & excitement would have to make this one of the best video games of all-time.
