This has got to be the single most important upgrade to the Fight Night Series. While before stamina was based on your boxer as a whole EA have now introduced a system call Natural Anaerobic Regional Fatigue or NARF for short.
Actually it’s just called Anaerobic Regional Fatigue but NARF is funnier than ARFâ€¦ anyway back t the point.
NARF basically means that you now have 4 stamina bars which measure different parts of your body at the same time. (Arm, Arm, legs, torso) So if you have a killer right hook you can no longer just spam that shot over and over as you will run out of stamina far quicker and will very quickly find yourself face down on the mat.
The principle behind NARF is that it will force you to fight more naturally and balanced and will reward the better all round fighters.
They have also removed that stupid healing system they had between rounds and replaced it with automatic healing that will heal you depending on how your previous round went.
Check the video to see what I mean, it all makes sense and should be a great addition to the title.
