I just walked into the office this morning to find a copy of Fight Night Champion sitting on my desk, and I’m positively giddy. My plan this evening? Eat crap loads of Mi Goreng on toast and play this game until I collapse in an MSG-induced coma. Have any of you guys played it yet? Is it worth existing solely on a diet of starch to get more time with the game?
Despite the fact that some fans had issues, I really liked Fight Night Round 4 – loved it in fact. I spent ages building up the stats of my user created fighter, wasted hours trying to recreate Makunouchi Ippo from the ‘Hajime No Ippo’ anime/manga, smashed all my brothers in-law (including our Kotaku designer Ben White) in multiplayer. How does Fight Night Champion compare to its predecessors?
And how is the new single player campaign? I found myself quite intrigued by the whole storyline mode. I’ve had a couple of people say they’ve really fallen in love with that aspect of the game – what say you?
