Naturally, you're a big wuss - come on, you're reading a magazine about home theater gizmos! Kidding aside ...since you're not likely to ever set foot in a boxing ring, Fight Night has it all: photo-realistic glitz (right down to sweat so glistening, you'll have to squeegee your TV screen), fight-style freedom (for southpaw junkies or the quick-jab obsessed), more than 30 licensed heavy hitters (e.g., Ali), and "super punches" (slowing the action to a crawl and zooming in so that you feel every facial ripple). Ouch!
