X360A Review: Fight Night Champion
Written Tuesday, March 01, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Ever since Sly Stallone brought Rocky to the silver screen in the seventies, we've been rooting for the underdog to succeed and from similarly humble beginnings, Andre Bishop's story in Fight Night Champion is a cliché-ridden one, but it's no less engaging as a result. Granted, there's no pounding frozen meat or chasing chickens, but everything else has an air of familiarity about it.
Story in sports games is something that hasn't really been done like this before - not to our mind anyway - and it's a nice little primer to the rest of the usual stuff that Fight Night Champion has packed into its silky boxing shorts. Is Fight Night still a contender though? Or should it be knocked out for the count and put out to pasture?
