Im not sure what these guys were expecting. The game has me hooked. I enjoyed the my face feature, and am enjoying the career mode. It is repetitive but it is kind of needed for the complex system used to control your fighter.

"doesn't have a good story"???? why would it? you are a fighter that has been cast on to ultimate fighter reality tv show. if you win you get a contract in the UFC. Then you fight in the ufc increasing your popularity. That seams like the only story you could have for a game like this!!

button mashers beware!!! it works at first but further you get into the game the harder it is to get away with this fighting style. Eventually leading to you just getting laid out!

i love the game! i will be keeping this one.

If you're looking for a game to compete up to the Undisputed franchise, then look again. Career is pretty bland, no story, no immersion, nothing to really be exciting to train for. You can't customize your gameface if you use it. There are also no sliders in the game to make your immersion seem more realistic. Some training procedures can be annoying at times, as its a chance of a coin flip rather than skill. I honestly hate that you can't sprawl in this game. The whole point of Takedowns is to be able to out sprawl someone with Brute strength. In the game there is nothing but one button spams whether it to get out of a dominant position such as Full Mount or when it comes to Flicking a stick Down to prevent a take down this game is lackluster. Some punches in the clinch are very unresponsive, especially after doing a knee to the body, you either hit it and nothing happens or you spam it and accidentally hit it twice. Leg kicks mean absolutely nothing, doesn't provide benefits to take downs, only provides a slight chance that the opponent will limp. There is no finish the fight like in Undisputed, you get at max 3 hits when someone is knocked out on the ground. Then you just stand up and accept the victory rather than EARNING your victory. Knock outs are pretty unrealistic... Game face is OKAY, not perfect but some of mine just come out flat wrong. Overall though, this is a good start when you compare UFC Undisputed 2009 to UFC Undisputed 3. So expect this game to be a stepping stone for the future UFC games. To be honest, I wish this game was more about simulation but overall EA stole another franchise from us (NFL2k cough) and provide us with a amateur job of a game. If you're playing with friends this can be an endless game of fun, but overall the game lacks.

THE GAME LOOKS GREAT...BUT THE LEARNING CURVE IS JUST WAY TO HARD...TRYING TO REMEMBER COMBINATIONS AS A NEW PLAYER IS VERY UNFORGIVING AGAINST AN A.I. EVEN ON BEGINNER...
