Got my copy this morning, and haven't stopped playing it

Gamboa is my pick of the bunch so far, fights just like in real life... really fun to use
This was my first KO against Montiel
You could really see the power difference, even my jabs were knocking him back onto the ropes

You need to work on your defense, I'd have KYTFO.

WTF were you doing after he already fell?

Looks like you tried to uppercut a ghost.

Some would say I'm overly aggresive
I wanted him to be dead.

I agree, this game is the ****!! And the CPU AI is actually pretty challenging. My first fight I picked Mike Tyson vs Ali. The CPU actually made Ali fight from the outside and it was challenging to get Tyson with his short arms inside. It was a war! The CPU will punish you for stupid mistakes. I went in thinking I could just go crazy cuz I'm Tyson and score a KO, nope. I ended up getting KO'd around the 9th round or so, my stamina was so low from all my wild punching. I got stunned so many times. I did manage to knock ali down once or twice. Very entertaining.

On Career mode I even lost my first fight to some bum! lol, that was embarrassing, same strategy as before just thought I could go nuts and KO cpu. After that I won 8 in a row so I'm 8-1 and online I'm undefeated. The guys who nonstop jab/straight punch are so easy to beat if you know how to bob & weave.

And you're right, Gamboa is so fast. He was my second fight and you could immediately see/feel the huge difference in speed from fighting Heavyweights to using Gamboa. I fought Billy Dib and beat the **** out of him in 2 rounds, lol.

Tommy Hearns is a savage on the game too. Oh, and I whooped a couple people's asses with Whitaker online. Again, all they did was try to throw the non-stop straight, whitaker's good defense slips those punches, counter hook, and that's all it takes.

Legacy mode is nuts bro. The days of going undefeated are over. Also since you have a garbage chin in the begining stages you can not afford to get hit clean.

Yep, I've gotten stunned so many times it's not funny. The CPU really knows how to punish you for being an idiot. Not only that the training is hard (at least it is at first). And the great thing about this is this isn't even on the hardest setting, so when I master the game I know there are still more challenges a head.

And that's exactly what I wanted from this game - challenging career mode. It got so boring in FN3, winning every fight by KO, doing the same stupid training and repeat. Much more depth on FN4

You one more question I kind of jumped into the legacy mode a bit, can you choose who the champs of your division is before you start?

yep and the entire rankings. I chose to be tommy hearns at welterweight.

I made Pacquiao, cotto and shane mosley champions. And I had the other real welterweights ranked 1 through 13 (meaning I had ricky hatton, augustus, etc. ranked highly).

I guess I am going to have to start legacy mode over again.

Hearns is an absolute monster, I turned off the classic fighters in legacy mode so I won't be getting an ass whooping from him
I've had one punch KO's with him and Mosley... awesome

The AI is excellent... I turned the difficulty up and played Tyson against Calzaghe, he just kept outside throwing straights and knocked me out in 8 :/

Another thing with the AI, when I fought with Cotto, I kept trying to land left hooks to the body first... the computer was covering up and counterting which is cool.
