Fight Night Round 2 (GameCube)

 

Last year's Fight Night 2004 reinvigorated boxing video games, as boxing had become a sports genre that many people had written off years ago. After a sequence of mixed results in the Knockout Kings series, EA Sports' Fight Night came along and...

Last year, I proclaimed Fight Night 2004 to be the evolution of the sport of boxing. Easily the best looking boxing title to date, the combination of rag doll physics and the naturally intuitive Total Punch Control system established a standard that...

However, all that aside, I personally was thrilled to see many of the issues that I brought up from my review last year addressed in Fight Night Round 2. The inclusion of the cutman mini-game between rounds is a great addition, and the Haymaker...

The game will knock your block off!

Ultimately, the Career Mode is the meat and potatoes of the game. You can either create a boxer from scratch, or recreate a boxer from the current line up and go through the career. You start at rank 50 and move your way up, but note that even if you...

Who Says Sequels Can't Be Good?

Taking a no name to the top of the boxing world is fun, but another incredibly entertaining aspect of the game is fighting with legendary boxers like Muhammad Ali or Joe Frazier; and re-enact famous fights.

Fight Night: Round 2 - xbox

 

It pretty much exemplified the sport at that time. By no means perfect, it did however do very little wrong. Capturing what makes boxing what it is, and leaving players with few significant complaints to speak of

Fight Night Round 2

 

Fight Night Round 2 has struck a balance between Sweet Science simulation and immersive, hands-on, be-the-brawler gameplay.

If anything, EA's boxing games (first "Knockout Kings," now the "Fight Night" franchise) have been moderately decried for being too "simmy" for a the console convention. You can't fault a game for being too realistic, too technically technical, too...

With one sluggish performance after another, the boxing genre has long been past its prime. Previous boxing titles relied on traditional gameplay mechanics that confined the player to limited use of their fighter and made for bouts that were nothing...

Product Specifications

The Power of the Punch. For the first time, a single Haymaker can crumble your opponent to the canvas like he was hit by a wrecking ball. Every devastating punch inflicts massive punishment and reduces a fighter's ability to defend himself. One-punch knockdowns are now a reality - you're always one punch away from flooring your opponent, but miss and you're in trouble. You now have total control of your boxer with 360 degree Sticking and Moving and the ability to punch and block while dancing around the ring. Using the analog sticks for total precision, create and train the ultimate champion by transforming his skills and physique. Counter the effects of damage, and keep him in the bout by taking an active role between rounds. Each punch pays off with stunning visuals that reflect the effect of each blow. Your fists have never felt so powerful as injuries affect your fighting abilities - a swollen eye prevents you from blocking, and a broken rib impairs your punching ability and mobility. Experience the realism as the sweat drips and the muscles flex on the most realistic boxer models ever created.
