The First 10 Minutes:
Fight Night Champion

The First 10 Minutes:<br> Fight Night Champion

We are a bit late but here are finally the first 10 minutes of Fight Night Champion, EA's latest effort in the boxing genre. The single player mode now features a real scenario which makes the game more immersive and more paced. Too bad though that the replays do not look as impressive as in the previous games, mainly because it does not really feel like the boxers are punching hard. We also took the liberty of adding a gameplay video showing a bit more of the game.
Update: Although you probably won't care, the French version of the first 10 minutes is up, with a few minor differences in the extracts shown.

starting to think having the ref in the rings was a bad idea..he sames to get in the way of the camera too much - was watching giantbombs quicklook and he was no better there.

That camera man filming the card girl was a right perv

Personally I find the story mode disappointing, way too short and some of the fights are arcade nonsense, this isn't a beatemup with boss battles, it's supposed to be a boxing sim, lazy cheap development forcing contrived arcade situations on the gamer.

    GriftGFX They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (21 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Belgium wants to ban loot boxes in Europe. Yeah, good luck with that. And I hope they plan on extending draconian regulation to card games as well. (43 minutes ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: No no. They say: yes it is gambling, but we have to investigate further hoW EA does it to determine if it's gambling. It's a weird interview. (6 Hours ago)

    droezelke EA as 'randomised lootboxes'. I think the gaming industry has a strong lobby.... (7 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Tiz: Just read an interview with the gambling commision on the lootboxes in BF2. They have to investigate if what EA offers really is based on chance. Wait, what? That is proven and is advertised by (7 Hours ago)
