Fight Night Round 4 tips and strategies

Updated on March 11, 2011

Fight Night Round 4

Fight night round 4 is here,Its back and better than ever with improved graphics and sound as well as extra boxers and gameplay elements,Me personally i loved fn3 but when they announced the next one would have Mike Tyson in it as a playable character i thought that's mine i have to have that game.I picked it up on the day of release and have played it a fair bit and want to pass on my tips.It doesn't disappoint and in this hub i will be giving you the achievements and tips on how to be a winner, not only online but also in the career section of the game as these tips apply to both.Remember these tips and implement them into your strategy and you cant go wrong.Happy playing.


Jabs: Use them....They are the quickest punch in the game and although they wont do huge damage.If you land 30 jabs in the 1st round and he only connects with 5 and maybe a power punch,then you are going to have inflicted the most damage.If you can time it right you can throw the jab as they throw hooks and uppercuts and put them off their stroke,keep beating them to their punches by frustrating them with the jab.

Stamina: As in another one of my hubs on UFC Undisputed Stamina is absolute key.The amount of people i see come out of their corner swinging for the fences as i just step back ,keep my guard up and counter punch then the second they are out of gas swing a hay maker up under their chin is unbelievable.Punches in bunches and when you are done step back get some air and contemplate your next attack don't blow it all in the first minute trying to take your opponents head off,it only works if they have no defence or blocking skills

Body Punches:As in real life if you land a few good body shots in the first round or two then this is going to drain their energy and make it much harder for your opponant to land big shots,This draining effect increses if you land counter body punches.

Counter Punches:These are brilliant,it takes some practice to get your timing down but once you do...Land them,They can swing the flow of a fight in an instant and can get you a win even when you were losing before the punch.Block and dodge at the same time to set up the counter then let loose.

Headbutt/Low Blow:As with the previous incarnations of fight night you can usually get a couple of these in before the ref docks a point,i find i always use them when getting a hiding i throw my head twice because its quicker and then when he is dazed smash him with a power punch and then jab to get out of there.

      I know there is an audience for this game (and many others)but it's lost on me. My grandson is on the computer playing games all the time and I wish he would go outside and ride his bike, or play tag, or just skip some rocks into a lake.
