      2. Introduction
    =============================================================================
    
    Did you watch the last task on The Apprentice, too? If so, then you 
    probably went right out and bought Fight Night Round 2, like me. FNR2 is 
    perhaps the best boxing game since the NES days. The fluid motion of the 
    punches with the Right Joystick is absolutely crazy. It's literally like 
    we're the boxer in the ring. The Career options, famous boxers, and Create 
    a Player options make this game truly wonderful. However, this game is 
    short-lived in the end. Ephemeral is the word I'm looking for. Although 
    it's pretty tough to master, once you do it's over. Just like this. ;)

      4. Basics
    =============================================================================
    
    Punches
    -------
      It wouldn't be a Boxing game without punching. Don't worry - you don't have 
      to remember any combination of buttons, just what type of punch is the best 
      in what type of situation. The Right Analog Stick controls your punching 
      pretty fluently, so you can really bash into an opponent if you desire. :D
    
    Jabs
    ----
      Jabs are short, straight punches - they strike quickly and efficiently. 
      Jabs don't leave much room open for the opponent to wail on you, which 
      is definitely a plus. However, they don't pack a strong punch. Mainly, 
      jabs are either used in succession three or four times to get off a 
      small combo, or executed to start a more deadly combo. If the opponent 
      is trying to block your jab in one area, it leaves them open to more 
      brutal attacks in other areas.
    
    Hooks
    -----
      Although slower than Jabs, Hooks are designed with a little more damage 
      in mind. They're your main arsenal for quickly beating up on an 
      opponents face, and are especially deadly in combination with uppercuts. 
      Hooks are your basic side punches to the face - you're hand goes down 
      and hooks over to one side of the opponent's face. Also, Hooks are 
      wonderful if you're targetting a certain side of an opponent's face. 
      Mixing up hooks is essential, considering its simple to put your guard 
      up.
    
    Uppercuts
    ---------
      These bad boys definitely leave a mark. Uppercuts start low and cut up 
      to an opponent's chin (obviously). Use them fluently with Hooks and Jabs 
      to mix it up. Open with uppercuts if the opponent doesn't have his guard 
      up, and when you need to mix things up. Otherwise, I would use Uppercuts 
      with Hooks - in the middle of a combo. Don't perform Uppercuts too 
      often, as they leave you open for punches and blocks if the opponent 
      sees you executing them like crazy.
    
    Haymakers
    ---------
      There are two types of Haymakers you can perform: Hooks or Uppercuts. Sound 
      familiar? It's basically the same deal as the regular punches, but you wind 
      up your punches before you throw them. The tradeoff for the slowness is 
      that they pack quiet a punch (heh). Even if the opponent blocks a Haymaker, 
      it will still do a little damage to them. Use Haymakers in situations where 
      you have the time to execute them. That might possible be when the opponent 
      is fatigued, parried - just open for a big, slow attack. Don't abuse 
      Haymakers because they take a away a ton of energy.
    
    Defenses
    --------
      This is definitely overlooked in the beginning portion of the game - you're 
      great offense supplements a poor defense. If you always have your opponent 
      on the ropes, swinging right and left viciously, he might need defenses, 
      but you certainly don't. That changes rather quickly as the game progresses 
      because the AI turns aggressive.
    
    Leans
    -----
      Leans are a cool way to dodge your opponents attacks. You have complete 
      control over where you are leaning, and can lean in different directions 
      rather quickly. So, you can lean your way out of most of the punches in the 
      game. They are absolutely a lifesaver when one is on the ropes or about to 
      be punched by a huge haymaker. You can also duck with the lean controls and 
      get a few gut punches in, effectively countering most of the opponents 
      upper misses. One can't move around the ring and lean at the same time.
    
    Blocking
    --------
      Keep your guard up! Blocking either renders punches ineffective or 
      mitigates the damage taken severely. It isn't like your arms can protect 
      your entire body, though. You'll have to move your arms to where the 
      opponent is trying to hit you for blocking to work. Might seem hard at 
      first, but it is fairly easy to learn. You *can* move and block at the same 
      time, so use the technique as a shield if you want to get away.
    
    Parry
    -----
      Parrying is very effective when you're facing stronger, more aggressive 
      opponents. Basically, you block the attack and also get the opponent open 
      for a counterattack. Parrying is like a stun, but instead of you 
      controlling the stun, the stun is determined by the power of the punch. 
      Learning to Parry is learning to win. Again, you can only Parry one side of 
      your body, so you have to be good at knowing where punches are going to be 
      hit.
    
    Counterattack
    -------------
      Counterattacking is, well, countering an opponents move after you've 
      blocked/parried their attack. It's a great way to get hits while you're on 
      the defensive front. The opponent is "open" after you've blocked their 
      attack, giving you just enough time for a counterattack. Usually, though, 
      you can only get one hit in because they're already moving back when you 
      throw the first punch.
    
    Clinches
    --------
      A neat, new feature is the ability to clinch your opponent. It's the best 
      way to get life back in a KO moment. Instead of having to block your way 
      back to health, you can instead clinch your opponent and get some health 
      back to fight. It can also be used as a time waster - use it when you're 
      getting beat on badly. Clinches can be pushed away, so be sure to put some 
      sort of thought into it when you throw them.
    
    KO Moment
    ---------
      When one boxer's health expires, they're in a KO moment. That is, if they 
      get smacked around a little here, they'll find themselves kissing the mat. 
      Mainly, you'll either want to hit very hard as the aggressor and 
      block/clinch as the person who's out of health. Remember that you can 
      clinch your way out of a KO moment and regain a small amount of health, so 
      it is definitely not a sure deal when you get to this point. KO moments 
      last a just little while, so you can dodge opponents out of a KO moment.
    
    Ring Movement
    -------------
      Boxers move in decently fast, but you can't rely in sidestepping/retreating 
      to end an opponent's flurry; boxers move slow enough backwards that this 
      type of strategy is almost impossible unless you have a head start. You're 
      always facing your opponent, also.
    
    The Ropes
    ---------
      Around the ring are ropes to fence you in. Use them to your advantage. If 
      you're pounding on someone in the corner, they won't have an escape route 
      and will have to maneuver their way out. You should always try to be 
      backing your opponent into the ropes.
    
    Cutman
    ------
      Obviously, your boxer is going to get banged up in the fight. If you're too 
      bloodly or bruised up, a referee can even stop the fight! However, the 
      boxer's loyal cutman is always on his side of the ring, making sure he 
      doesn't look too aweful. You control the cutman, and you can either reduce 
      swelling or cuts. The numbers are from one to one thousand in four areas of 
      the face.
    
    Penalties
    ---------
      Amazingly, this game has the Illegal Punch option. I didn't even list it 
      because it doesn't have any really good uses besides a great way to lose 
      points. The first time you Illegally Punch you simply get a warning. After 
      that, though, you lose point after point until you are finally 
      disqualified. Don't do Illegal stuff, kids, unless you want to lose a 
      fight.
    
    Stoppages
    ---------
      There are two ways a game can be stopped by the referee: the three-
      knockdown rule or injury rule. For the former, the 3-KO rule has to be ON 
      in the options screen. If someone gets knocked out three times in a single 
      round, with the rules in effect the fight will be over and the aggressor 
      will be rewarded a TKO. Great when you beatdown on people, but pretty lame 
      in the upper brackets. The stoppage rule is similar, but it has to do with 
      how much injury a player has. If a boxer getting absolutely impounded in, 
      the referee will stop the fight and award a TKO to the crusher.
      
    =============================================================================
      5. Offense Strategies
    =============================================================================
    
    Mix Things Up
    -------------
      Don't ever stick to a certain punch and especially in a certain area - the 
      opponent will get used to it after a few hits, parry, and make you pay. Try 
      to also mix up the type of punches and the area in which you hit them. If 
      you spend the whole fight knocking the opponents head, he'll soon realise 
      this and put his block up. A good repetoire of punches makes it more 
      difficult for the opponent to figure out how to block, so try doing all the 
      punches in your combos.
    
    Keep Your Guard Up
    ------------------
      Even while on the offense, always keep your guard up in some way. Whether 
      it is putting your block up, or staying in a lean position, you should 
      always go back to some sort of defense directly after your barrage. If you 
      don't, the opponent will do the exact same thing you did to them. It would 
      be two people bashing each other in if nobody sidestepped the attacks in 
      some way.
    
    Use The Ropes
    -------------
      Probably one of the most useful strategies in the earlier part of the game 
      is to not only pummel the target with punches, but also lead them into the 
      ropes, afterwards a corner, so they don't have any place to run. If you do 
      this, you'll have a lot less misses because the opponent won't have the 
      option of running away. The Ropes are somewhat risky, though, because the 
      opponent might be smart enough to get out of it and box you in.
    
    Open Them Up
    ------------
      In the beginning of the fight the opponent will have his guard up, and it's 
      your job to open him up. To do this, try to take a step back, dodge/block 
      doggedly, and wait for your opponent to make a mistake. When they catch 
      air, take advantage of him with a small combo.
    
    Follow Through
    --------------
      Don't just jab them once, jab them a few times, along with a couple 
      uppercuts, too. If they're allowing you to hit them, follow through and 
      bang them a few more times. Of course, use different punches in different 
      locations, or you'll find a block/parry will stop you.
    
    Jabs
    ----
      Use them in a staredown to possibly open them up or at least get a few 
      punches in. You can Jab consecutively pretty fast. Jabs aren't big punches, 
      so don't use them as your main offense. You *might* want to throw a Jab in 
      the middle of a combo to mix things up, but you should leave the damage to 
      the hooks and uppercuts.
    
    Hooks
    -----
      See the opponents guard down? Hook'em up! Seriously, Hooks are the bread 
      and butter of your arsenal. They should be in the middle of your combos, 
      after you either open the opponent up, or they make a mistake.
    
    Uppercuts
    ---------
      Uppercuts make things interesting; instead of hooking/jabbing away, you 
      have that third option to pummel the opponent in. They rise up and inflict 
      damage on the chin, so you have a chance to really open up the opponent 
      with uppercuts. I wouldn't go crazy with Uppercuts, though, as the AI 
      recognises them and backs away.
    
    Haymakers
    ---------
      Little punches are good and fun, but Haymakers really lower the opponents 
      health. They take a long time to wind up, but in the end, if you connect, 
      it will be worth it. But that's just the problem - the opponent is smart 
      enough to back away if they see a Haymaker wind up. So, you should only use 
      them when the opponent is fatigued, stunned, or otherwise stupified by your 
      blows. If you go Haymaker crazy and end up catching air, it will lower your 
      fatigue, so don't abuse Haymakers.
    
    KO Moment
    ---------
      The opponent will definitely be blocking in a KO moment, if they're worth 
      anything at all. So, it's pretty hard to hit them if they have their block 
      up and are backing away from you. Try to lure them into a corner while 
      accurately throwing punches. Mix things up and hope they penetrate his 
      defense. If they don't, back them into the ropes/corners and get a couple 
      hits in on them. That should be enough to take them down.
    
      In addition, Jabbing is actually useful because they're so fast and break 
      blocks. I've actually knocked people out with Jabs, of all things! Oh, and 
      be sure to punch the foe as they're falling to the ground. It will make it 
      that much harder for them to get up.
    
    Shell Up
    --------
      One of the best ways to attack is to wait for the opponent to make a 
      mistake. With that in mind, hold the Lean button and duck. Dodge the foe 
      and wait for him to take a punch in the air while you're ducking. When this 
      happens, punch him in the gut a few times with some hooks and uppercuts, 
      maybe even a jab or two. While he's busy in the air, you can get a good 
      two-three punches on him in the gut. This, in turn, leads to damage and 
      worse fatigue.
    
    Parry-Punch
    -----------
      Just as the header states - parry and punch them afterwards. It's tough to 
      master, but parrying is your bread and butter for tougher opponents.
    
    Combos
    ------
      Just a small reiteration of all the above points. Open them up and pound 
      them with a few heavy duty hooks and uppercuts - maybe even a Haymaker if 
      they're really open. The key to offense is small three or four punch 
      combos. Nickle and diming WILL get you somewhere, but nothing gets a match 
      done quicker if you know how to execut combos effectively.
    
    Punch'n'Run
    -----------
      Simple: jab at the enemy, run back, and repeat. You'll control the tempo of 
      the fight if you do this. It potentially leads to your opponent becoming 
      open in some way. I used this mainly for higher ranking fights that I 
      otherwise could not win.
    
    Friend = Parry
    --------------
      Parrying is the make it or break it skill for higher ranked fights. The 
      opponent is so aggressive, they just won't get off you unless you stun them 
      a little bit. Learn to master the Parry and you will master the game. 
      Parrying is awesome because it opens the opponent up every time.
    
    Signature Punches
    -----------------
      Huge wind ups and a big chance of missing if the opponent can walk. Great 
      if they're on the ropes or the opponent gets careless and misses up high. 
      Signature punches really open them for a couple punches, but really blow 
      energy. Definitely only use them in certain situations, and never open up 
      with them if the opponent isn't occupied with a stun or punch.
    
    =============================================================================
      6. Defense Strategies
    =============================================================================
    
    Parry
    -----
      What better way to get out of a beatdown rather than stun the opponent? If 
      you know where the opponent throws a punch, you can Parry them and get out 
      of a combo. Parrying also starts up the offense.
    
    Blocking
    --------
      Blocking is great because you can move away while blocking. Though it 
      sometimes doesn't mitigate all the damage, it severely absorbs it. There's 
      no better getaway than with a shield, and Blocking really gives you a 
      shield. Very useful in KO moments, as well.
    
    Leaning
    -------
      Leaning can be VERY effectively because the opponent doesn't hit you at 
      all, wastes judge points, and opens up for counterattacks. I like to roll 
      the thumbstick when leaning, or stay in the duck position. Move as the 
      punches come, of course. Leaning is definitely not a sure thing, so put 
      your block up while Leaning.
    
    Clinching
    ---------
      Getting bloody, and need to waste time? Clinching will do just that, 
      grabbing your opponent for a few seconds. Use it when you need to waste 
      time or break tempo. The Clinches main focus, though, is to recover from KO 
      moments. If you Clinch your opponent while in a KO moment, you recover some 
      health and are not in a hectic situation.
    
    Cutman
    ------
      Cuts take precedence over Swells. Focus on the area most hurt, overall. If 
      you have too much to do, try to spend a little while with each area to 
      effectively patch up your boxer. Follow the highlighted spot with your 
      Right Thumbstick - it's very simple but requires you to not be asleep at 
      the wheel. You only get thirty seconds, so work efficiently and quickly.
    
    Stay Away From Ropes
    --------------------
      If you're on E and want to waste time, don't run into a corner, please. 
      Instead, try to circle around the opponent while Blocking or Leaning. If a 
      foe get you on the ropes, it will substantially increase their chance to 
      hit you, or knock you out.
    
    Learn Opposition's Tendencies
    -----------------------------
      If the opponent always throws high, block high. If they're more of a 
      speedy, jab type of person, try blocking. If they're one punch hitters, 
      leaning is your friend. What makes FNR2 so interesting is that you can 
      effectively counter everything. If you're on your defensive game, you'll be 
      ni-hi unhittable.
    
    =============================================================================
      7. Career Mode
    =============================================================================
    
      Without Career Mode, FNR2 would be an arcade game. In Career Mode, you can 
      either play the career of a famous boxer, or box with a created boxer. In 
      both situations, you start out in the Amateur League.
    
    Amateur League
    --------------
      Ever seen that movie, Million Dollar Baby? Well, the Amateur part of the 
      game is similar to the first fights the heroine has. Haven't? Well, she 
      pulverizes the living daylights out of everyone in the first fights! It's 
      like one or two punches and... BAM, they're down!
    
      The Amateur League is just like this. You can swing your way passed every 
      single round because the opponent doesn't know how to block. It's great if 
      you're learning how to throw punches and such, because you don't really 
      have to worry about the foe fighting back. You can EASILY win every round 
      by hammering away.
    
      For the first five fights, you'll have training programs before the fights. 
      These teach you how to execute all the moves in the game. Really learn how 
      to do everything, don't just mash away and hope for the best. You'll need 
      to know all of the game's mechanics later in the game.
    
      It's recommended that you stay at least for the first five fights, so you 
      can get all the training programs in. After that, it's another four fights 
      until you can contend for the Amateur Belt (Nine Wins). You can only get 
      this once, so I suggest you stick around and get it. Your opponent in that 
      match is a good warmup to Pros, but you can still swing away and win.
    
    The Professionals
    -----------------
      Whoa... ten thousand! And we get a ranking, how cool is that? The opponents 
      in the Professionals are much more difficult than the Amateurs, but if you 
      use my strategies you should turn out all right. For the 50-20 ranking 
      fights, you can fight people a good 4-5 ranks above you. Remember to get 
      the lowest weeks to fight, also, as old age will kill you in the end. ^_^
    
      For ranks 50-40, take people on a good 4-5 ranks ahead of you. Be smart, 
      and open opponents up. You can use a Cheap Lean strategy, too. Duck, dodge 
      the opponents frenzy, and wait for them to throw an air punch. Bash away at 
      their stomache after this, you should get a few good hits in. When they're 
      low on health you can get aggressive and miss a little, while backing them 
      in a corner. Repeat for sure wins.
    
      Ranks 40-20 are relatively difficult because you'll need _skill_ to defeat 
      opponents. Use the block function with the punch function, remember! Save 
      energy, open them up, and pound away. Cheap strategies won't work here, but 
      you should still be able to take opponents a good 2-3 ranks above (or 
      below) you.
    
      From 20-1, it's all about Parrying. Opponents are super aggressive, 
      tougher, faster, and more powerful than you, so you have to play the 
      chicken little Parry strategy. Parry an attack to open them up, throw a 
      couple punches in, and repeat. Take on people around your rank unless 
      you're crazy.
    
    The Belts
    ---------
      You get most of the belts by doing something in particular during a fight.

    Combo Dummy
    -----------
      Increases Speed, Agility, Chin, and Heart.
    
        Follow the combinations displayed on the combo dummy by hitting the 
        lighted areas in the correct order. Pull and hold the left trigger to 
        throw punches to the combo dummy's body.
    
    Heavy Bag
    ---------
      Increases Power, Speed, Stamina, Chin, Body, Heart, and Cuts.
    
        Balance throwing combos and resting score points. Comboing with low 
        energy scores less points. You can only score by comboing on the lighted 
        area. Rest when bad is not lit.
    
    Weight Lifting
    --------------
     Increases Power, Stamina, Body, and Cuts.
    
       Move the left or right thumbstick up to raise the blue bar to the red 
       target zone. Releasing the thumbstick lowers the blue bar. Timing and 
       smooth motion are key to effectively completing reps.
