Even though EA Sports MMA does not have the official UFC license like their competitor, it is still an amazing game. The graphics and training centers are great. As someone who actually trains in a real MMA gym, I find the fighting style and actual workouts that your career character practices to be pretty close to the real thing. However I wish that EA Sports would of made the career mode bigger by adding the ability to find sponsorships and pick wear you want to put them on your MMA shorts.
-Good Graphics -Fun Game play -Realistic Training Centers and Workouts

There is a reason that EA MMA will be a one and done franchise. There was some very good things about this game for instance
The cut system was spectacular. Tons better than what UFC Undisputed has done. Cuts would stay and open up easier unlike in UFC which would have them disappear between rounds.
The career mode and the way CAF stats are distributed and how when you trained for something it was for attributes that matter to what you were doing unlike in UFC where all you had to do was spam takedowns and use your side arm choke to get max points and then put them anywhere and put those at 100.
Graphics were top notch.
Now the bad parts.
Online was a complete joke. Spamming galore. I had a guy take me down and then stood up I was trying to get up but was locked in an animation cause he was doing the diving punch at me. He kept rinsing and repeating till I got KO'd.
Career mode gives you money for fights. I did not see anything to spend it on other than traveling which was 5,000 max. I ended up with a couple million to do nothing with.
Submissions. While it was a good idea on paper in game the mini games do not work.
It's good for some achievements and some fun if you have another human that will not glitch/spam you. But definitely not worth 60 bucks. Rent do not buy!
This game beats UFC undisputated in every way! The graphics are simply amazing, the action is fast paced and fun.
Sound is great, good EA trax unlike Undisputed's sound was extremely annoying.
There is ton of customization options in this game, not many as undisputed . tatoos look phenomenal, there are tons of names, last names, nickname options. The training is much better then undisputed and realistic too. The loading is fast, controls are easy?
there was only one flaw with this game; the ground game, with a push of a button to switch positions, get a d submission, it.was to easy I prefer it like undisputed much more conplex. The game also lacks of special moves. D:
But everything else the game is perfect, The engine used in FNR4 makes this gsme a beast!
My other complaint was that you couldn't add dudes with long hair.When tackling a submission it becomes a minigame wich is great and fun!? each time I score a win on career mode It makes me feel proud of myself. The clinch mode is amazing, really fast paced action. overall rent it but If you're a real mma fan this is a definate buy. The roster has some unknown fighters? since the game wasn't licencensed to the UFC, perhaps in the future Dana shall forgive EA and Join forces. (: But the look alikes will be available for fighter download since the photo game face option? oh yeah it's here. The stances, winning movements are far greater than Undisputated and the photo game face feature can make eavh character unique. just get it.
