Oh dear. IGN’s given Facebreaker 5/10, which EA’s likely to be very pleased at considering Edge just gave it 3/10. From the IGN piece:
Overall FaceBreaker doesn’t deliver on many of its goals. It’s designed to provide a rock-paper-scissor style gameplay experience, but players will likely end up feeling cheated and overly frustrated by the core gameplay. There are too many balancing issues and cheap moves given to some characters to keep players around for more than a couple of hours. The multiplayer options help a bit, but not enough to pull FaceBreaker up from the lower tier of fighters.
We’re saying nothing.

EA has just announced a giant line-up for Holiday 2008, and it’s hard to be unimpressed. There is, quite fairly, something for everyone. Big boss John agrees.
“EA’s 2008 lineup is our best ever,” said EA head John Riccitiello. “This is the year that our core franchises leap forward with stunning innovation and we introduce more brand new games than any other year in our history. Sports lovers will compete in an all new holographic mode in Madden NFL 09 and experience the online evolution of their players in NBA LIVE 09. Action fans will be able to destroy everything in sight in Mercenaries 2 and be scared witless in our new Sci-Fi horror title Dead Space. We’ve got casual family titles like Hasbro’s Littlest Pet Shop and genre-defying experiences like Mirror’s Edge and Spore. EA has never offered consumers a stronger, more innovative and diverse line up of new games.”
It’s all after the link. There’s nothing there you don’t already know about, but seeing it all in one place is something else.

Here. The cartoon boxer looks the same as the last time we posted shots of it, which probably means we won’t be doing it again.

EA’s made a first showing of “lighthearted” boxing game Facebreaker, in development for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii at EA Canada. See screens here.
“Arcade boxing takes me back to my roots in this industry, and this game signals our shift to adding more approachable fun to our product lineup,” said EA Sports boss Peter Moore.
Fictitious boxers like Romeo and Molotov will suffer “real-time face deformation” in the game, which currently has no release date. Expect to see this mentioned in EA’s third quarter financial statement later today.
