FaceBreaker drops you into a world
filled with eye-popping stylized graphics and ego wielding characters that get
you raring to get your pummel on. Add a little personal motivation to your
fights using the custom face generator called Photo Game Face. Use an Xbox LIVE
Vision camera or a PLAYSTATION®Eye camera to create a custom boxer by uploading
yourself – or someone more notorious – directly to your console. Alternatively,
use a regular photo and share your masterpiece with the world in the online
Boxer Gallery. Download your created boxer into your game in seconds from EA
, or scour the 30,000 plus boxers that have already
been created since the launch of the downloadable demo last month. 

Laugh out loud as you pummel your
opponent with a barrage of blows to the face, and watch in satisfaction as your
progress is illustrated by real-time facial deformation. With haymakers, face
shots and body blows, wait for the right moment to drop a Breaker to make your
presence known. Taunt your adversaries and flaunt your talent, by boxing with
one hand behind your back to add ultimate humiliation to your bout. In
FaceBreaker, it just feels good to rearrange your opponent’s face.
