I was a little hesitant to go to analog stick control over buttons presses but EA definitely made it work. And actually being able to pull off a submission was effortless compared to UFC. a career mode that wasn't a seriously boring grind helped too. Along w/ the option to join different leagues w/ different rules helped have some variety to the game. And an awesome replays you have can b uploaded for the world to see. I think I'll be picking up the next installment of this series.

The Good: great physics, realistic stats for appropriate style, mixture of martial art fighting styles - Muay Thai, Sambo, Wrestling, Judo, Jui-Jitsu, Kickboxing, Boxing, Brawler and Generalist - good cast of underated fighters including Fedor Emelianenko, Randy Couture, Ken Shamrock and other notable fghters.
The Bad: bad presentation, limited fighting techniques, nothing to set one style apart from another except stats because every style can do and learn the same techniques. some glitches like skipping fighters' entrances in career mode.
The Ugly: very rarely will you land a flush ko because it is a timing thing, but you can have an abudance of TKO's with a striker. if you are a judo guy who has outstanding strikng skills, you will still lose against a striker who only has average striking skills - not very realistic. the last thing: there are no knees from side control.
