Fight Night - Box

DescriptionSubmit Description
Fight Night was originally designed by Accolade in 1985 for personal computers, and Imagineering Inc. adapted this game for the Atari 7800 in 1988. Considering Ring King and Mike Tyson's Punchout were released for the NES by then, it was easy to understand why this boxing game got overlooked. Fight Night boasts 12 playable boxers, but it really only has six different character templates. The pugilists are large, detailed, and humorous, but the audio is poor. This game features a short "career" mode, a training mode, 2-player exhibitions and a nifty tournament mode. The gameplay is similar to Buster Douglas Boxing or the Greatest Heavyweights for the Genesis, but for some reason, human beings can't perform their character's special punches, only the computer can.
