Fight Night: Round 4

April 30, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Interest and hype is growing around the next installment in the Fight Night series. Fight Night: Round 4 will mark the second installment for the franchise on next-gen consoles; the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The previous game was very well received on these platforms, and anyone with even a passing interest in boxing and games based upon it should definitely check out what's on offer. Electronic Arts' Vancouver studio have been putting extra effort into this title, building upon the sublime attention to detail which made the past installments such a hit. An increase in the frame rate also leads to this being the smoothest running boxing game to date, and it shows.

This amounts to great inter-connectivity between the gameplay, graphics and physics of the game. Details include sweat flinging through the air, boxers arms becoming tangled in struggles, and punches have an impact on specific areas of the opponents body. As for the controls, a couple of changes have been made to the overall scheme, but they're very slight. For example, there's less emphasis this time around on overpowered haymakers, and more on hooks and jabs. So in order to perform a haymaker the player executes a hook while at the same time holding the right controller trigger. This culminates to produce a more realistic fight that has the potential to last longer than before.

Blocking has also been redefined as well, since this time around punches aren't restricted to four areas, blocking has in turn been simplified to two options: high and low. Crucially, EA have reworked the parrying system. Previously it was possible to parry all your opponents attacks until their energy ran low, making for boring and predictable rounds. In this new title, parrying will only get you so far before attacks start to break through.

Add to this a reworked career system which results in a much more engaging and rewarding gaming experience, and you have undoubtedly the best in the series so far. The Fight Night games have grown to be a benchmark against which other sporting games are measured, and this trend looks set to continue into the future!

First of all, there is the global phenomenom known as LittleBigPlanet. LittleBigPlanet's gameplay is comprised of many different types of side-scrolling levels that can be played both alone and via multiplayer mode. The story mode may seem short for a platformer, but it's purpose is merely to introduce you to LittleBigPlanet, a place constructed completely from our imagination. Each piece and part is like a section of a patchwork quilt, and can be modified in any way you please as you customize your own levels; creating your very own weapons, enemies, items and gameplay mechanics. Whatever you want to do, it's up to you.

This is why it is such an amazing game; you are only limited by your imagination. Created levels can be shared online; so as long as there are people willing to build, there is always a reason to come back and play.

Next up we have Fallout 3. Much of Fallout 3's wide acclaim has been due to a sense of extraordinary openness and freedom. There are an amazing number of ways to approach and resolve any given situation. The story takes place after a nuclear disaster as you find yourself to be one of the few survivors. When your father disappears you set off after him, becoming trapped in a series of events and dilemmas, political intrigue and merciless violence.

Fallout 3 is a first-person RPG, featuring an intriguing combat system and almost complete exploratory freedom. In addition, there is a kind of ethics system; the decisions you make will have varying effects on your reputation in different political circles. Where you may have done something decidedly bad in the past, certain people will be impressed by the reputation this brings, while others are not. Your decisions greatly affect the flow of the story, right up to the end of the game, where the ending itself is decided by your actions. In a game like Fallout 3, much replay value and variety awaits.

Then, finally, there is Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. If there is any reason to get a PS3 at all, it is Metal Gear Solid 4. The game has been awarded a perfect 10/10 by many gaming review sites, and has even been called by some a hallmark in gaming history. It is now commonly considered to be the best stealth-action game available.

MGS4 is the fourth and last installment in the Solid series. While MGS2 introduced first-person shooting options to the stealth-action gameplay, and MGS3 third-person gameplay, 4 combines both. Over the course of the game, weapons and items can be obtained and customized according to your tactics. MGS4 opens up new possibilities; your weapons and equipment can be either stealth-oriented, combat oriented, or both. But it's the gorgeously told story here that seals the deal. The MGS series has always been known for its cinematic presentation, but Guns of the Patriots takes the cake. All the narrative subtleties and character building engineered throughout four games come to head in this title, bringing about a truly epic storyline that will resonate throughout the industry. It's what makes a game so worth experiencing.
