Update: Checkout our Fight Night Champion review.
Put up your dukes because EA’s boxing game, Fight Night Champion, has made its way to iOS devices.
This ain’t just another boxing arcade game. You’ll have the opportunity to train your boxer and hone your skills in something called Legacy mode. You’ll start in local tournaments and develop your skills with training and amateur bouts. As you proceed you’ll work your way through the ranks and witness your boxer pique and then grow old, where upon you’ll have to retire. No joke.
We’re not sure if the Legacy Mode incorporates real world heavy weights, but you’ll be able to face off against up to 20 champions, such as David Haye, as well as heavyweight legends like Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, Manny Pacquiao, Roy Jones Jr., Bernard Hopkins and “The Golden Boy” Oscar De La Hoya.
But the fun don’t stop there. Utilizing WiFi or Bluetooth you can face off against friends, provided of course you’re both sporting 3GS or later iPhones. While we haven’t had a chance to get a complete hands on (review coming soon), we’re told that the game uses fluid touch controls and gestures that keep your boxer ducking, weaving, jabbing, and moving around the ring. There is even full audio commentary from Joe Tessitore, boxer damage graphics and dynamic lighting effects.
Fight Night Champion is available in the iTunes store now for $4.99.
