*sigh* yet another game that is a carbon copy of the TF2 art style, screw this trash and give us FN4, obviously EA was interested in making a game that would attract little kids and families rather then boxing fans.

A big muscly white dude, oh where have i seen that before. (TF2)

Oh a smooth stereotypical latino, where have i seen that before? (R2R)

this accualy looks pretty...borring..... look like PS2 models, there don't have the charisma like TF2 charaters do. Sorry I just don't feel it....

Bring back FNR4 with a nice in depth story (or sorry I forgot EA doesn't do story telling well :P)...

This looks like one of EA's biggest mistakes, instead of doing a really amazing FightNight 4 with better graphics and more fluid speed, as well as an amazing career mode with better online design.. Something that will play the same on both systems 360 and PS3, (NOT to mention the great opportunity they had to link the two systems so you could fight someone on 360 from your PS3 - I don't know if there could have been a better game to fight the console war out on.) Instead they choose to make this game.

Which looks like a poor version of Ready to Rumble... EA once again totally misses the mark on making something really cool and instead designs a copy of what will surely be a cheap gaming experience. -This is what happens when you start making games purely for profit and not because your a gamer.

This is part of the reason I hate EA and hope they don't acquire take-two where they will just wreck the GTA -Franchise.

These days EA as a gaming company sucks.. Big Time..

I wouldn't buy this game even if it was the only game on the self for the next 3 years.

After FNR3, I thought the trailer was pretty much in-game graphics. But the real graphics don't even come close >.<

Oh well, maybe the gameplay will be great.

So, I'm the only one who likes it?

I'll happily take the style of Ready2Rumble with the gameplay and controls of Fight Night Round 3. If the animation is silky-smoothe, those graphics would look pretty good, the skin shaders especially look pretty tasty.

It looks fun!

Most of what you guys are saying is probably just because you haven;t seen the game in motion yet. These visuals are fine, they aren't at all jaggy, the textures aren't shit, and the style is really nice. And I love TF2, but just because a game with an art style thats in the same genre of art (cartoon, pixar like style) doesn't mean they ripped them off. So before you guys go on about how you know exactly how this game will play and that it will suck, wait at least till there are some game play videos, or better yet, wait till you play it for yourself.

They already announced they will be making a Fight Night 4.

One could use this POS facebreaker as hopefully a sign that they're making it for the arcade audience and Fight Night 4 will fulfil the wishes of the real boxing fans in the world who want a sim boxing game. Alternatively there's 2k's prizefighter which promises more sim like gameplay than the fight night series.

Lmao, i guess after TF2 brought out its revolutionary art style that actually worked, it was just a coincidence that all these EA games started pouring out with the same style?

And where have they confirmed FN4?? Because i damn sure haven't see that announcement.

better be a FP-view. they said u can put ya own face in the game to use..but with all the comic faces, just wont look right, out of place.
but anything like Ready2Rumble gameplay then im sold,
Commented on 2008-03-04 17:47:48
Why are you all being so against it? Whats to say EA dont have another team working on FN4 right now? So its not been anounced whereas this has, doesn't mean anything, FN is a boxing sim and this clearly is meant to be for fun and who knows, how well this game does might influence the development of FN4. Chill a bit =/

It's slapstick Sheps. We knew that the moment we saw that the boxer was wearing grenades and sticks of dynamite around his waist.

I admit that I was soooo looking forward to a Fight Night round 4, that I was initially disappointed by this game, but as long as it`s done correctly, then it may just turn out alot better that initially hoped.

It looks like one of those games that may need to be seen running, rather than via stills. I still can`t wait to pwn my mates on this though rofl (evil laugh).

I just hope that they keep the same game mechanics as FN3, such as the block features and the amazing use of both the thumbsticks as well as the triggers. I found that using both in unison like that really made sense and felt `right` all the way through the game.

Come on EA, do NOT let us down !!!.

This game doesn't rip-off Team Fortress 2's art style, it rips off Ready 2 Rumble's art style! Team Fortress 2 looks more like The Incredibles whereas Facebreaker looks more like the humans in Ratatouille. (Although the black guy looks more Team Fortress 2/Ratatouille.)

Well sega isn't releasing ready 2 rumble 3 for the next gen consoles! so even though i am not a huge EA fan, i'm glad atleast they did it.

If they can pull off the damage of fight night 3 and cartoonish feel of ready 2 rumble, this is going to be one fun game
Commented on 2008-03-07 05:44:21
team fortress 2 looks better.

Neither TF2 nor R2R created those stereotypes... And just becasue

Actually TF2 wasn't the start of the trend, alot of stylized games have been coming out lately, even before TF2. Even so, its just teh same genre of style, its so very general and vague. It looks nothing like TF2 accept that its cartoonish.

    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (1 minute ago)
