all i can say is wow, this game is the game of year, without a doubt in mind. Its that good...... With how successful round 4 was worldwide Ea increased EA canada budges to make FNC, Ea canada is where fnc was made. Well they must have increased the budget a hole freakin alot cause i am seeing the effects of it in this demo as u all will in 3 days. If i had to guess Ea's Budget must have went from 2,000,000 to 10,000,000. Thats just how much money they must have made from Fight night round which sold over 2.5 miliion copies world world wide. Do the math, 2.5 X 60$ = 150 million dollars! so from the success of fnr4 brings us to the level of the fight night series. Ur eyes will be amazed when u play this game.

The game is simply amazing, the graphics are amazing, looks like a payperview fight. Its the real thing. Pacquiao is crazy good in the game and extremely fast. Cotto throws Crazy hard body punches and has the yankees trunks he wore against foreman on. The sound effects are are insane, makes u think u are in war the punches are so loud when they land.

I'm glad havent heard to many complaints about demo. I worry a little about to many punches , not enough stamina effect. Also to much blood and to many one punch KO's.

These are all things that can be tweaked with updates so hopefully they will listen to our feedback on demo.

I just hate in round 4 when you destroy a guys body early and he still can throw 90 punches around in round 9.

1 question are there signature punches in champion? Like with 'A" button and to body/head? Or have they removed those?

dj Ramos

i hope they release fighter packs with like 4 or 5 guys which u can use online regardless if the other player has the pack or not. it sucked on last fight night i got de la hoya and couldnt use him cause the other player dont have the pack.

I absolutely hate it so far. But I hated round 4 at first until I learned it. I'm like 2-12 online so far.

Still everyone throwing 275 to 375 punches a fight in 3 rounds. My last fight we where both Ali stats still on screen it went 2 & 1/2 rounds he threw 312 I threw 232.

Seems like everyone I ask with headset is using buttons. Buttons may be better because I'm just getting destroyed every fight. I'm gonna try the buttons and other configurations for bumpers.

Also everyone seems to just cover up and wait for you to punch so they can land the stronger counters. Since you dont have to aim your blocks, kinda hard to pick an opening. Its just an auto block now.

I played it just now and I like it more than I liked the FNR4 demo.

I think the footwork may take some getting used to. It seems as if the camera angle changes when you/your opponent is in a corner which feels a bit awkward, but maybe it'll feel more natural after a few more fights.

I don't like that the fights are three rounds. Only 2 fighters is understandable, but 3 rounds isn't really enough to see factors like 12 round stamina/wearing people down, and it leads to volume punching wars as the poster above mentioned.

Also in one fight I was Tyson and got flash K'dTFO by an Ali jab. There was no instant replay or anything so I didn't get a chance to rewatch it and see how the hell that was possible.

Just had a guy throw 466 punches and beat me. 466 punches ina 3 round fight. What a disgrace. Good sign to turn off the demo.

You think I could cover up and after the 14th punch in the combo he would be exhausted and ripe for the pickings. Not a chance.

the faces look pretty good too and the gameplay feels much better

bringing back the buttons is a nice option.. better to have than not

but they still didnt bring back the "in the ring" mode that was on Round 3 on PS3....... that was the illest!

Good point, in fairness someone could throw 466 punches in the first 3 rounds and show only a little fatigue (they probably have custom demo settings too, to arcade it up to the max)

but in a 12 rounder? you'll KTFO the dude in about round 6 or 7

I love this one so far. It just feels a lot more like boxing with the increased speed and you can feel every connect (even if they're still not actually doing much...). I'm starting to get defense down, it seems to be a lot more based on movement than static Winky-style defense this time around. But I'll take this over 4 (and I loved 4) just based on how much better it looks. The animations are perfect and the graphics are crazy. And you can actually throw pretty fluid combinations.

Defense seems simplified , 1 button blocks all.

Who cares about graphics if the game play sucks.


I hope I come around and end up liking the game but right now its is the worst fight night ever.

Yep I feel the same way, the sound of punches connecting is way exaggerated. The gameplay is nothing special, the only notable diffrences are the the camera angles and theres an actual ref in the ring this time.

Dont rush out and buy this, it'll be like fn round4 and be 20 dollars before the year is out.

02-02-2011, 03:05 PM
Finally got the demo and im actually impressed. Its'd definately better than FNR4, thats for sure. Improvements in movement, speed... though the camera angles can be alil distracting sometimes.

Punch combinations is a whole new thing for me, my first boxing experience with the Fight Night franchise was FNR4 so i've got used to using the stick. These combo's, styles of gameplay are certainly something that will take time to grow.

Im still having probs with blocking and letting off combo's that I want as im sticking with the sticks as I cannot get used to the buttons.

Stamina needs to be worked on as my opponents so far (CPU) are throwing around 300 punches after 3 rounds and lets be honest not all the boxers can do that. It would be brilliant if every movement of each boxer was captured but I can see that happening in the future.

Overall, a definate step forward, though some getting used too is required.

So far I have not played online with friends as non of them have an intrest in boxing games. I've played 2 matches with the CPU. Anyone on the PS3 wanting to play the demo online with me is ofcourse, welcomed.

DIB42
02-02-2011, 05:00 PM
I think before we all panic about throwing 400 punches in the fight, we need to remember that its a 3 round demo. It wouldn't be impossible for a fighter to throw 130 punches a round for 3 rounds, could they sustain that for 12 rounds, not likely. So until we really get to see the stamina system in play, we can't assume its going to be spamfest 2011

Yep but now its too easy to fight on the back foot, Tyson can't get close to Ali without dropping the guard and eating combos coming in. I don't like how you've got to crouch like you're taking a **** before you can throw a body punch.

Maybe alot of non boxing/video game fans downloaded the first day that usually don't play fight night. That combined with the 3 round distance may be contributing to the 375 punch arcade games i keep getting.
I did try it again yesterday and had one or two decent fights. But the controls are still very odd along with alot of the other problems.
I hate to say it but maybe they should delay it if it would give them time to fix his stuff.

if you dont like it dont get it, simple as

and it seems to me you complaining about just getting outworked and losing is due to you sucking, if you had any sense you'd flick the left analog(quickly taking a step back) and throwing a straight right counter or just weave and counter you'd be suprised how easily you'd be sweeping the rounds, even despite being outworked, the counters are, like in reality, flashy, point scoring punches

and most of the guys going at that workrate by the 3rd have a tiny ass stamina meter, if you can hold out in the actual game you'll surely knock'em out later on in the fight

it's a great game

Its a really hard game.. I noticed how it works now though... With Tyson and Cotto you have to risk a bit more.. if you want to get inside you have to hit that body..
I went Ali and got ripped to the body alot and Alis footspeed got reduced to limping but still able to throw punches fast.. this is very realistic.. I'm in love

Well this was a thread to discuss the demo right? Not if I don't like dont get it. The Ea forum is full of people ripping the game to shreds so its not just me being a sore loser or what ever your implying.
I have had every fight night and am at least average over at the game so its not like Im new to the series and am complaining about loosing.
Its a demo I don't care if I win , I want to get comfortable with controls and learn the game. See the improvements.

I may end up loving the game but right now the demo/game needs a lot of work.

Like I said maybe in the real game the stamina will take effect and this wont happen, probably should be like a 6 round demo or something to show showcase the stamina and damage a bit more.
I would also like to see if the guard weakens over a 10 rounder.


The problem with me sucking and not being able to flick the stick or what ever you said is that the controls are no as easy to use. To counter and land a power shot I have to hold both triggers and RB while moving both sticks. Just seems like there would be an easier control scheme.

It also seems a little hard to move in and out compared to last years.

I'm starting to get into the game.

I've been fuking everybody up.

I don't get why a lot of you complain about foos being able to throw a lot of punches. Shi.t I want people to throw a lot of punches, so that I can counter their as.s and knock them out. The more they throw the more openings I get.If that's bothersome for you then you need to learn more about boxing. I suggest watching JMM fights.

Lol lately i've been trying to emalute his style in the game, and I get a lot of success.

back to the game though....
At first I thought it was complete sh.it, but I thought the same thing about FNR4 and until I got this demo FNR4 was the only game I played. There's a lot new stuff in the game that I like, but I hate the controls.

I guess I got used to FNR4 controls and simply moving the stick to punch, which makes the controls in this game complete sh,it to me.

One thing that I hate about it is that it's hard to fight on the outside. As soon as you step within a certain range the fighters are sucked into each other via a magnetic field.

It's more annoying than the one in FNR4 because....

Hopefully this is turned down in 10 round fights.
I joined their developers Q & A about online play yesterday and they said they are researching the demo and feedback. And if need be they can adjust this.

They also claimed that hey your playing with Tyson and Pacquiao , which my response was how many times was Ali one punch KO'd in his career. It should happen , but more so to weaker fighters or weaker chin fighters.

But its not all about beating these guys , its about enjoying the game and being able to play a somewhat realistic boxing match.

Counters being over powered are another concern , alot of players seem to just sit there covered up waiting to counter. Could make for some boring online games.

Im sure these things will work themselves out or get updated just my opinions.

the punching system is poor. how are you suppose to know when to throw a left straight, left flared straight or left hook when the angles to throw each punchis so close together.

same with the left hookCUT and left uppercut. it looks like you have to push the stick in the exact same direction for both punches.

yeah this is one of my main concerns as well. I think they should get rid of the flared straight. Or make that a modified punch or something. it's just too fine of a line between those three punches (straight, flared straight and overhand). The hook shouldn't be a problem since it's a straight to the left or right motion, that shouldn't be easily confused with any other punch. It's the top three punches that are just too close.

02-04-2011, 02:28 PM
I don't like the controller config, i thought i would, i never really cared for TPC i used it, and in FNR4 i got good with it and gave up buttons all together, but this new one is just too finicky, half the time i'm throwing overhands and flared when i'm trying to throw a jab or straight. And For FUCS SAKE, get rid of the counter window and the overpowered counters. I played online, and just held block, powermodifier and side stepped everyone and hooked. BOOM HEADSHOT! 3-0 all kos.

when trying to fight normal, i'm 3-9. But i suck at the controls. So in theory anyone not good at the game will spam counter modified hook and win somewhat consistantly.

counter power needs to be decreased, granted you can martinez a pwill out with a counter, but you don't see floyd knocking every dude out with his counters.

I've knocked a lot of guys out so far with both Tyson and Ali. I think it's cuz there's a lot of noobs.

There would've been a high chance of Ali getting KO'ed if he stood and traded with Tyson and didn't move, which is what a lot of guys do. If you try to avoid Tyson's power online in the demo, you'll notice you will rarely even get hurt.

Just got stunned with a body shot, took all my stamina and it took ages to refil. Nice! Realistic.

You guys seen the stats? They've made Ali well overpowered his right hook is more powerful than Tyson's. :lol1:

i really hate ali in this game, he has an iron chin, huge stamina and his power is also huge, it's gay, he's gay boy :nonono:

the punching system is poor. how are you suppose to know when to throw a left straight, left flared straight or left hook when the angles to throw each punchis so close together.

same with the left hookCUT and left uppercut. it looks like you have to push the stick in the exact same direction for both punches.

would you not just mix it up with the buttons?

instead of having the creators adjust to you, you should learn to adjust to the game, square/triangle to jab, x/o to hook, and right analog for uppercuts and the overhand

simple right?

I don't get why everybody is complaining about that.

I've knocked out Ali plenty of times with Tyson.

Yeah I was one punch KO'd by a rabbit punch.

Also lost a decision where I landed more and a higher percentage all 3 rounds. Atlas was calling out the judges on their bad scores.

Im finding it alil weird right now on the Xbox. In the habit of pressing the block button like its the PS3 controller and end up pushing punch modifier, then I get hit wit a bomb and i remember lol

Whats the least punches anyone has thrown here in a 3 round fight?

I just threw 176 and the CPU threw 326.

Im a "pick my shots kind of guy but in this game the work rates just killing me.

I hear that the haymakers are gone which makes sense. The only one that was realistic was tyson since that was how ended most of his fights.

What's the deal with the Champion mode? is it like a new career mode? can you play through champion mode with your own custom fighter (the guy in the trailer looks pretty lame).

I downloaded the demo today played as Cotto vs Pac a few times won by U.D couldn't seem to score a K.D. I was fairly impressed but game of the year? no chance then again I'm more of an RPG fan.... I can see ES Skyrim grabbing game of the year.

Need to get my hands on the demo before I make a final judgment.

Against the computer your punches thrown will stay low if you want them to, online is another story. But thats the 3 round demo we will see when the game hits.

EA Forums just posted this

sk88z says "As mentioned previously, the team has added the capability to tweak and modify some game play aspects based on consumer feedback in the full title for both PS3 and XBOX 360 to make the game more authentic. We plan on pushing out these Tuner Sets over the course of the launch period (if necessary) and will communicate out what changes will be made. Please note that these will be very minor changes and may not be noticeable at first.

We are also able to push out a Tuner Set for the demo in the XBOX 360 environment to help test the functionality and after listening to feedback based on your early experiences with the Fight Night Champion Demo, we are putting out a Tuner Set tomorrow (Feb 8th) that will subtly impact the following:

1. Slightly reduce current stamina regeneration rate
2. Slightly increase stamina loss for missed and blocked punches
3. Increase overall punch power: Health loss from each punch

Thanks. "

Right, it's a 3 round demo...

Imagine if Pacquiao was in Prizefighter, fighting 3 rounds. How many punches do you think he could throw?

If you throw 300+ punches in 3 rounds in a 12 round fight, your boxer will be so slow by the 5th round.

The stamina doesn't seem to bad.

Yes but you are assuming that EA factored this into the game. I beg to differ, id like to be proven wrong as its a nice game. I think its safe to say you are assuming that the game will factor in "tired'ness" by round 5, and im assuming the game wont.

When I threw over 300 punches, my boxer was sluggish and slow on his feet. I'm assuming that will carry on over the course of the fight.

Now I'm beasting in the computer cotto(me) vs pac(cpu) I've played a bunch but my last 10 fights have all ended by me winning by UD or KO.

I dont like that they won't have draws online. Some fights are draws, no way around that. I was kickin' dudes butt, but he knocked me down in the third so it gave him the decision. I outpunched him, out countered him, outlanded him, and landed at a higher percentage. robbery. not cool, but realistic i guess.
