    Only analogue sticks will be a problem for some but for me it means I'll be getting this on the PS3 instead of the ever so slightly better looking 360 version, which also appears to have a bug in it.

    It makes mer feel like crying not rushing out to buy this game - I was looking forward to it - if only they hadn't removed the option for face buttons. I also know another 4 people that aren't buying it for the same reason - 5 sales down straight away.

    I like FNR4. Its feel more realistic and the use of your brains. With the face buttons, yeah easy controls and it won't be a challenge... The use of the analogue stick throwing off punches I personally think its a good way of playing a Boxing game.

    Sales are still going to be strong for FNR4 besides people not wanting to pick it up because it doesn't suit for you.

    Good review. I have got this game today alongside with Ghostbusters. I'm perfectly fine now till Oct Smile

    More accesible controls - where it does what you want it to do when you want it to do it - does not make a boxing game easier if made correctly!

    If it's only a challenge because there is a chance that 50% of the time your fighter does a haymaker instead of a hook then it's not a challenge I'm intrested in taking - I want the oponent to beat me because it's a better fighter than me - not because my fighter isn't doing the type of punch I want him to do.

    Regardless of the people who will want to use the analogue sticks to box, there will be other people who will get frustrated with the controls and just give up and trade the game in.

    FN3 held it's price for a long time and was actually quite hard to get hold of for a time as everyone kept the game to play again and again - I guarentee that no matter how good the game is on FN4, (and it looks amazing - I really want to play it!), this game will drop in price quite quickly and be making plenty of appearances in the pre-owned section if people don't like the control scheme.

    An accesible control scheme is THE most important thing in a game! and the fact that the developer has taken away peoples choice of control is a massive mistake.

    Maybe so, but I think it has improved from FNR3. The use of the analogue stick to me makes the experience a lot better and adds more spice.

    In all fairness maybe if EA had two different control system layouts for this game. Buttons and use of the analogue stick for FNR4, then everybody will be saying that FNR4 is the best Wink

    well I own PS3 and 360 and the 360 looked better by far on the demo compared to the PS3... so I bought it on 360. I have been playing the game non stop and hasn't frozen on me at all... NEVER.

    Exactly my point - I have no doubt that the game itself is better than FN3! It looks amazing!

      Maybe your naked eye can pick up a lot more than the those at Digital Foundry can with their tests.

      I have been playing FNR4 for a day now, and its 100% better then FNR3.
      Having to use the stick is not a problem, i dont see how it is, surley the people who are complaing are the ones who sit there 'button bashing' the pad like there's no tomorrow. Simply the best boxing out there now.
      Graphics are stunning, and the gameplay is sweet as a nut, not to mention the online fighting too..11/10 from me peeps....
