Fight Night Round 4 Hits Hard

Fight Night Round 4 has smashed its way to the top of the UK all format Gfk Chart Track for the week ending 27th June 2009. This is the first time a boxing game has reached number 1 in the much respected ELSPA/GfK – ChartTrack, and it went up against some heavy hitters.

EA Canada’s Fight Night Round 4 has blown many away with its realistic models and fantastic controls, putting you firmly in control of today’s top fighters, and giving the player the option to play as legendary hard hitters such as Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson.


EA have every right to be happy as it knocks out Activision Blizzard’s Prototype only for the sandbox anti-hero game to awake now in second place. EA’s own life simulator “The Sims 3” has also dropped a position to hold a respectful 3rd place in the charts.

The top ten looks like this:

1. Fight Night Round 4 – EA
2. Prototype – Activision
3. The Sims 3 – EA
4. Wii Fit – Nintendo
5. UFC 2009: Undisputed – THQ
6. Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen – Activision
7. Call of Duty: World At War – Activision
8. Virtua Tennis 2009 – Sega
9. EA Sports Active – EA
10. Ghostbusters – Sony

As you can see – EA have three titles in the top ten alone, a big reminder that they are certainly one of (if not the) biggest contender in the industry. It would seem that with all the nice weather we are getting here in the UK, everyone is keeping there sports indoors as the top ten sees no less than five sports/fitness titles competing for the top spot.

There will be a review here very soon, and it will be interesting to see if Fight Night Round 4 can go a full twelve rounds and remain top spot next week.
