First off, the demo is out NOW but only with a special code you get from gamestop/EB games after preordering, and the demo lets you use Ricky Hatton or Manny Pacquiao.
-No more broken parries = already better than FNR3
-Using swaying, bobbing+weaving to dodge punches is the main defensive tool. When youre successful, there’s a bit of slowdown for you to get your counterpunch in. VERY satisfying when you properly roll under a shot.
-Blocking at the last minute IS a parry in this game, but its definitely not as good as swaying (or in FNR 3). I like how its just block low or high, it was too complicated in FNR3 having to block hundreds of punches, each landing on 1 of 4 quadrants
-The new system for getting up is a lot harder, more fun.
-REALLY effing hard to knockdown someone. They go in a dizzy state, and they clinch 1 or 2 times and theyre safe again
