Fight Night Round 3 is a 2006 boxing video game developed by EA Sports. It is the third entry in the Fight Night franchise and was released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3 platforms. Fight Night Round 3 features several gameplay and presentation enhancements over its predecessors. The game’s most notable new feature is the inclusion of a “compensatory” mechanic, which allows players to partially recover from a knockdown if they are able to get back up before the referee reaches the count of 10.
Fight Night Round 3 was generally well-received by critics, who praised its improved graphics and gameplay mechanics. However, some reviewers criticized the game for its lack of innovation and multiplayer modes. Fight Night Round 3 sold over 1.7 million copies worldwide and was the sixth best-selling game of 2006 in the United States.
