Prizefighter X-Play preview

Posted May 27th, 2008 at 7:20 pm

A new video preview of Don King Presents: Prizefighter has been posted as it was featured on G4’s X-Play. I’m going to withhold my personal thoughts on the gameplay footage, so go ahead and watch it and leave your thoughts in the comments. I’ve also added a quote from the Prizefighter producer below which came out of a preview today and was pretty interesting to see.

At this point if the game is going to make its release it is at least in the certification process, if not already having gone gold. Continue on to view the video.

But for executive producer Matthew Seymour, who with Top Spin created a serious match for the likes of Virtua Tennis, and steered Amped 3 from its predecessors’ dry precision to being deliriously playful, FN3 may have been beautiful, but it was also shallow. “It’s bullshit that it redefined fighting, and it’s time to move on,” he says, criticizing its failure to utilize 3D space, its “terrible” career mode, and its unrealistically slow analogue movement…Seymour is proud, then, that Prizefighter’s controls are digital and are rooted in the likes of Street Fighter II.
