Fight Night Champion is a Fighting game available on the 360. It can be played in Thirdperson Singleplayer modes.
Fight Night Champion is a Fighting game. Fighting games revolve around the interaction of two or more characters in some form of physical combat. Players learn to control characters through either memorisation of button combinations to access more advance moves, or by their reactions and accurate timing.
Fight Night Champion can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.
Fight Night Champion can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
Fight Night Champion will provide brutal, gritty boxing, with increased violent realism and a new story mode.
Fight Night Champion continues the series' tradition of realistic boxing, adding a wider diversity of punches and more realistic fighter animations. The over-the-top haymaker is disappearing, although for the first time it will be possible to put more weight behind a punch for a heavier hit.
hey kid, the short, gnarled, stereotypical Irish-American boxing coach here. have you never seen a boxing movie? what about any movies at all? no, well then you're gonna be blown away by the originality of the new story mode in Fight Night Champion.
no, it's unfortunately not going to win the 2011 John Grisham prize (presented annually to a story with the fewest clichés), but having said that, it does add some much needed variation to what was becoming a slightly stale series.
Fight Night: Champion improves the previous game by degrees. Night and day however is the introduction of a fighter's story than made me reconsider much of what I thought about the sport.
Fight Night: Champion is different from the previous Fight Night games because it begins with a single story. A little like Need for Speed Undercover, you are dropping straight into the action before seeing a single menu or option screen. From the off, it's clear that this is about the people of this world rather than just the mechanics.
