Bad

TANKED HARD

I am so very depressed that this game sucked. I was really looking forward to trying out this game because I love fighting games and wanting to branch out from games such as Mortal Kombat and others like it. The controls were confusing and the AI's stamina would run out but never went down. NOT ONCE! It seemed like all I could do was button mashing. Now I enjoy button mashing as much as the next person. I am seriously going to rethink playing any other MMA games.

Good

Summary review.

Pros:
- great fighter customization for career mode.
- career mode is solid, featuring different camps from around the world that you can train at. Plus, once you've completed a training mini-game, you can simulate and reap the benefits of whatever you scored.
- clinch and ground fighting look great, but the moves are limited on the ground.
- great roster (despite popular opinion) featuring Fedor, the Shamrocks, Randy Couture, Cung Le, Bas Rutten, and more.

Cons:
- the control scheme is complicated
- the striking is really bad; it is very hard to actually ko someone. Jabs and straights are apparently useless. Strikes can be interrupted if struck.

Final thoughts:
This game is a definite rent for any true mma fan, but I still would say that UFC Undisputed 3 is better. This game mainly shines in the clinch and ground fighting, which takes the fun away from being a striker. Also, there is very limited techniques and no knees from side-control.

this game has potential. the storyline sucks the graphics arent all that great, you dont have very many custimizable options......wait diddnt i say this game has potential......thats right....i love the stand up and grappling asspects, simple and fun. but the submission scheme sucks. ea either needs to improve this game in many areas, dont make a sequel or leave the mma to the UFC.
