Featuring Muhammad Ali and Ricky Hatton among more than 40 past and present champions, Fight Night Round 4’s boxing sim is almost advanced enough to make you wonder why anyone would bother with the real thing. The excellent Legacy mode enables you to create and develop a new character, or control a real champ in their youth, and guide them to become king of the virtual ring. The graphics now run at a smooth 60fps, and the sophisticated modelling of the competitors’ toned physiques iswell-showcased by a slow-motion replay that depicts the moment a connecting blow floors your opponent.
