Xbox 360 PS3

The demo of Fight Night Round 4 is now available for those who preordered the game in the US on both 360 and PS3, but I still found a way to get it on the 360 so here is a video showing one full round. I'm definitely not pretending I played well, but at 60 fps it's still a nice watch :)

bit of an exageration dont you think? they're a damn sight better then round 3...the likenesses on the other hand....well, it looks like they hired someone from pixar to model the faces.

anyway. looks cool and a ton faster, but it looks like it has the same problem with very weak looking punches....but at least it doeasnt look like the fight is taking place underwater like it did in round 3.

Exactly!

EA: Thanks for agreeing to buy our game. Our immensely generous reward to you is giving you the privilege to play a demo... of the game you've agreed to buy.

Us: Grrr.

I wish there were demos for ALL games just like XBLA and Community Games. (At the very least after the full game has been released. I still want to play a demo of Golden Axe: Beast Rider just to see if it's as bad as the reviews say. :( )

Played the demo and in some ways the game took a step back graphically in one area while taking a step forward in another area. But that's fine i guess. The controls are fine i guess as well but they should have never taking away the buttons for punches as an option. Also the punches feel a bit too slow often and seem telegraphed too much(from the beginning for those who want to say its an stamina thing because its not, this is not how it should be). Not to mention but the punches also feel like they have no real impact a lot of times coming off as very soft, you wouldn't be able to tell things connected well if your controller didn't vibrate at that moment. This game is decent but it has issues that should have been taking care of.

I like FNR3 much better than 4. It is exactly as I thought it will be, hit connection is pretty random.

True, but it holds you back from master the game. Any noob can beat a pro now.

Hmm, just like in FNR3 I largely dislike the right stick to punch, I'll probs get used to it but I much prefer the face buttons for my punches, not even the option to switch over =(

Having not played FNR3, this is a pretty good demo. Granted, it's missing a number of details like Hatton's back tat, but IMO, the underlying combat is pretty solid.

Now DL the UFC demo...

Not much of a pro if you can't adapt to random hits. I suppose to be a true professional you have to know exactly where they're coming from because it's always a predefined animation huh? Is that what they do in the ring?

no, but that is what you do in a fighting game...add a dynamic and physics based elements and it adds a lot of unpredictability, unpredictability in a fighter is a sure fire way to end up with a button basher.

you only have to look at characters in other fighting games to see that, just like eddy gordo from tekken. his move set was random and difficult to judge, and hence he became THE noob players dream character.

Damn, I fell in love with EA again.
They are as good as in the old days again.

All EA-games that will soon arrive are technically top notch.

When will there be a demo for all of us?!
Seriously people who preordered it dont need the demo anymore, since they allready bought the game!!

looks great,

i can already see the changes they were talking about in the videos, you fight closer, there is no invisible walk blocking in the middle, you can get real close.

the graphics look great , i was looking forward to some slow motion epic punches , will there be a part 2?

can't wait for the demo to come on the market place

well fnr4 isnt at the speed where button mashing (or stick smashing in this case) a good player will easily counter their opponent's punches and watch for an opening whilst letting them waste their stamina. You may see it as noobness but good players will rise and will show that button mashing will keep you on a low level of playing. (I'm not on about mega competitive just online in general)

I'm with the old school Street Fighter crowd. You know what happens to button mashers on Street Fighter, right? As Blue_Eagle says it's not really fast enough, button mashing will undoubtedly result in you doing a crapload of blocking, then finding the correct time in which to strike back. Much like some real-life boxers, they go in all arms flailing and it gets nowhere thanks to the other guys heavy defense, then one well-placed smack from him and it's over.
