Fight Night Round 4 is a boxing-simulation game where players can face off against boxing greats or take on a friend in a multiplayer match. The game features a career mode that allows players to create their own fighter, playing as they rise from underground matches at the local gym to packed Pay-Per-View events in Las Vegas. The game features realistic graphics, and its unique control scheme requires players to mimic the motions of throwing punches by using the joystick. There is a moderate amount of violence in the game but no otherwise offensive content. Due to the moderate violence and technical nature of the controls, Fight Night Round 4 is recommended to players age 12 and up.


This Game is Good for Kids Who Need Help With:

Working Memory

Recalling and retaining information in their minds while working.

Fight Night Round 4 helps kids practice their Working Memory Skills by requiring them to execute specific motions via the controller's joystick to throw punches. To throw a right jab, the player must push the joystick forward and to the right. To throw a left hook, he must curve the joystick to the left and then push it forward. Fighting in the game can get hectic, so it is very important that players are able to remember these commands on the fly. Once players master these punches, they will become better able to combine the together into fluid attacks. Executing the right combos at just the right times is key to victory, requiring players to recall and use learned information without hesitation.

Self-Control

Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.

Just as in the real sport of boxing, Self-Control is an essential skill in Fight Night Round 4. Throwing wild punches will rarely gain a player the win, as it is much more important to know when a punch should be used. Rather than tossing out as many power-packed punches as possible, players should use light jabs to open opportunistic for big strikes, all while dodging and blocking incoming attacks. Continually throwing big punches drains a boxer's stamina, making him sluggish and leaving him open to attack. By being conserving power, players can wear out opponents, ensuring they have more speed and power than the competition.
