UFC Undisputed: THQ and Yuke's Go For Round 3

In UFC 2009: Undisputed, the focus was on solid fighting mechanics. In UFC Undisputed 2010, the focus was on creating more in-depth modes such as Career Mode. In this game, THQ and Yuke's focus on user-friendliness. The fighting is still as solid and jaw shattering as ever, but some things have been revamped to make the game more friendly to the novice players. For example, attempting a submission now starts a mini-game that involves the person pursuing trying to overlap the person escaping using colored bars to represent each fighter. Also, transitions are split into two different methods which you can change in the options, depending on if you want to play with the original method of transitions or a simplified version that allows you to transition with the flick of the right analog stick. Creating a fighter and playing in career mode is my favorite thing to do in this game, since you can customize your fighter to be unique in his fighting style, although most created fighters still look similar if you don't put too much time into it. Players can also create their own entrances, touch glove animations, banners, and even create their own tattoos. You can now perform several training and sparring sessions to upgrade your fighter, such as stand-up sparring and tire flipping. On top of that, you can also visit many world famous training camps and learn new moves with other well known fighters. You can also play through another type of career mode with your favorite fighter, and essentially rewrite their career history as you see fit. There are other game modes such as tournaments and Ultimate Fights mode, which are all fun. The game has a lot to offer, and although everything here has gotten better, there is still plenty of room for improvement. Fighters could use more facial customization features, the commentary is a mixed bag, and tutorial mode should explain some of the terminology to novices as well. Still though, this is as real as it gets.

UFC Disapointment

Gameplay improvements and presentation are great. A very fun game when in the octogon. But there are too many loading screens. You will spend more time loading than actually playing. Would be a great game otherwise.

The game seemed like a lot of fun after it had finally installed, however the first time we got to pick fighters (versus) the game froze and we restarted the console, this time it fires right up and finally we're playing, only to lock up again after the fight when go to reselect characters for a rematch. Long story short, after doing internet research it turns out many others were having similar issues, and I have a brand new playstation so it wasn't that. I would have rated it horrible, if it weren't for the fact, that I did find the fighting enjoyable, but the fact that it was sort of unplayable caused me to ship it back in a few short hours from the time i opened the gamefly envelope.
