The Fight: Lights Out Review Roundup

1 min read


One of the most hyped titles before anyone had their hands on the PlayStation Move was The Fight: Lights Out.

It’s graphics were gritty and hardcore and this was the title that was going to bring motion control fighting to the hardcore fans.

We had some hands on time with it at E3 and it was utterly abysmal and ever since then it has been slinking off the scene and trying to remain unnoticed.

But it’s time has arrived and the review embargo is lifted, we never received a copy which is most probably because we live in deepest darkest Africa and it was to scared to even show it’s face around here judging by how meek the title actually is.

IGN – 3/10

Videgamer – 5/10

TheSixthAxis – 7/10

Games.on.net – 2/5

That’s all the ones I have found so far and besides the high score by the PS3 fan site it isn’t looking good.

In fact reading the IGN review makes it look decidedly terrible. So terrible in fact that I suggest going out and getting a copy. That is if like me you love terrible games.

    It’s probably safe to discount the IGN review, given their ties with Microsoft (and general scoring bias for the big M). I’ve never heard of Games on the net, so we can ignore their score as well. Which basically leaves us with a 7 and a 5. πŸ˜€ :whistle: :cwy: sniff… Danny Trejo!

    I like your theory of deductive reasoning, Mentalist, and not to shabby for conspiracy as well..
    Ok, Mulder, but if Danny Trejo is playing a lame badass in a game…ABOUT being a badass, how do explain a 7 foot Wookie on the planet Endor!?

    IGN scored Tumble at 3.5 as well, and that’s actually an ace little game (with the rest of the internet land scoring it in the 7s), which makes me less likely to trust their Move reviews. Anyway, Nofi makes some good points in his sixaxis review. It’s not a brilliant title, the fights are hard, and the fatigue system will nail 9/10 gamers.

    You guys should have learnt by now the most reliable reviews on the net come from Giant Bomb!!! I was also really impressed with Joystiq’s honest review about Fallout New Vegas. Will have to look into whether they are reliable too.

    As for this game yeah the consensus seems its really bad. Well at least theres still gladiator battles which is sweet. Anyone feel like Namco should take the hint and create a Soul caliber title in the same vain as Gladiator battles??? That would be so awesome.

    I think that anyone who *really* thinks that IGN leans one way or another needs one of those foil hats posted above. You people forget that IGN has the Sony Playstation super duper fanboy, Greg Miller. That man will defend PS3 to the ends of the earth and is not afraid to be vocal about it lol. Im amazed that people give any PS3 games bad reviews with Greg watching them, I’d double check that my doors were locked at night before going to sleep.

    But Greg isn’t IGN.

    Greg’s a bit like the one green idealistic hippy* in an environmental consultancy. Everyone else is just there to push out EIAs and EMPs, while the directors just want to make sure they don’t ruffle too many feathers and have a steady stream of clients. :happy:

    *the last of a dying breed, before the hipster scum found green to be fashionable. Damn you Top Billing.. DAMN YOU TO HELL!!!

    I dont trust IGN period. When they get exclusive world wide review rights they never score the game anything under a 9 whether Xbox, PS3 or Wii.

    Also im not defending this game and can see a mile away that its not near as good as we had hoped but still IGN have been very negative about Move since before it launched. Tumble is brilliant and their review is way off. I wouldnt go to them as a source for anything Move related. On the other hand Kotaku have been way too positive about Move from the get go so i says again Giant Bomb ppl!!!

    I don’t discount Greg’s ability to murder anyone who does not agree with him.

    Well it seems pretty obvious… it’s not like IGN is going to push really hard to get the world exclusive on a game that is looking like a piece of crap, they push for the heavy hitters

    Maybe Greg just hates PS Move? πŸ˜›

    Yeah but IGN made a good point when asking why is there is a fatigue system in a motion controlled game. Surely your fatigue is what really counts?

    They gave Tumble a 3.5. Are they smoking crack??? That’s a great game!! Ok I’m starting to discredit IGN.


  22. Bobby Kotick for Dummies

    November 3, 2010 at 13:48

    Damn straight! Tumble is awesome! 3.5 my ass. IGN just sucks!

    Probably for the same reason, that the game won’t or can’t actually score a real knockout on you πŸ˜›
