There were several moments while playing Fight Night Round 3 that I found my jaw hitting the floor in amazement. One of those moments was the first time I laid eyes upon the unbelievably realistic character models that are like nothing we?ve seen before from an in game character."

Overall: Simply put this is in the top 3 of all of the 360 games out. It depends on your taste whether it's numero uno, the ace in the place. As for me in my house, it's the king of the hill baby!! FN3 rocks buttocks in every way. It is an early must have in the short existence of the 360.
Gameplay: It's boxing at it's video game finest. It's not like your run of the mill button masher. If you try that trick you'll get the stank smacked out of you and how! You have to develop your skills. You have to train young champion or you'll be having canvas for dinner. I actually feel as though I can box after playing this one.
Graphics: It is graphically beautiful! It is amazing in detail! Somethimes I catch a hook or a uppercut because I'm busy looking at and trying to figure out the marvel that is FN3.
Sound: My only complaint is that the commentary is repetitious. The others like the sweet chin music the gloves make when they are performing a drummers beat on my opponents mug shot is a lovely sound indeed.
Suggestions: More venues, keep out the health meter, and announce the champion properly. Also let me choose my music I want to enter the ring to. The Ugly Truth, awesomeness, teh hotness. I holla!!!

Overall: I love this game. I just bought my 360 no more than 4 weeks ago and this game is the reason I finally broke down and forked out the 4 bills for the system. I'd been staying away from all the Xbox 360 kiosks ever since it came out because I knew I would have to get one if I tried it out. My brother and I stopped by a Best Buy to look for a new music CD and I walked past the 360 kiosk with the Fight Night 3 demo running and I couldn't resist. Bam, two days later I bought FN3 for the Xbox and it didn't cut it. I had to have the 360 version, so here I am a month later with a 360 and 6 games, !&%$@#* this game is good!!! It has all the boxing goodness one could ever want.
Gameplay: You BOX and BOX some more. Seriously, it has great (mostly)balanced fighting mechanics. The only cheap thing I don't like are some of the hay-maker punches. Which can really turn the tide in a fight that is one sided. I guess that's possible in real life, although not a common occurrence. In the higher levels of the career mode I've been in numerous situations were I'm beating the living crap out of the CPU fighter only to have it come back with one huge stun punch and win the fight. Besides the hay-maker punches the game plays flawlessly. The controls are spot on and super responsive with numerous different control configurations sure to please anyone.
Graphics: Absolutely gorgeous, it looks great on a standard definition TV playing in a letterbox mode. On a wide-screen High definition TV it is absolutely stunning with all the details easily visible. Definitely a game to use for displaying the power of the system.
Sound: The sound is good. The commentator gets very repetitive after only a couple fights and it is sometimes hard to tell which fighter he is commenting on. I don't care for the music. But that's just me and doesn't mean that it is bad music, it's just not my preference.

Overall: Fight Night: Round 3 is the most realistic boxing simulations to date. This game is also one of the best on the Xbox 360.
Gameplay: The realism of the game is amazing, the controls are very well done which makes this game so fun to play. There are also a good amount of boxers to choose from.
Graphics: Fight Night is one of the best looking games on the Xbox 360. The player models and venues are outstanding looking. The slow-mo camera when you get a knockout is just awesome to look at.

Sound: The fans are very well done, they react to exactly what is going on in the match. The announcers and the introductions of the boxers are very well done. I think this is the best part of this game.

Overall: EA's latest installement in their boxing franchise shines on its 360 debut.
People will be talking about the amazing graphics, but that isn't the only thing this pretty little number has going for it....
Gameplay: As close to boxing as you can get. All the punches, all the blocks, all the bobbin' anda weaving' , this game represents boxing perfectly. You can now also grab an opponentif your taking too much of a beating - something never used in a boxing game before, despite its massive importance in the boxing of the real world. Impressive.
Graphics: Some people are saying that Ghost Recon : AW has the best graphics seen on the 360 (as of yet!) . From me, you will hear nothing but disagreement.
Excellent body texturing, fantastic character models , awesome crowd effects are all included here. Not to mention the 'extreme close-up' effect when you knock someone down, complete with all the blood/spit/sweat you can take. Amazing.
