The game initially is fun. but the fight every 2 weeks or actions gets very old and makes the game seem like a grind. You would think this would be more fun but it just makes it take forever to train your fighter up. Another awful thing implemented is when you train certain skills others will degrade. This is ridiculous and makes it unfeasible to make a well rounded fighter especially in higher difficulty. The graphics are good but so much could have been improved overall they made the UFC series worse. The fights every 2 weeks force a slow grind and make it boring I found myself simulating the fights just so I could train faster. Another awful aspect of this game is when you start career mode there is a tutorial that is unskibable and for veterans or even less inexperienced players with a history playing these games just prolongs getting into the grind and gets in the way. Finally a good thing about this years release is the improved ground game. The submission system once understood is an improvement as well as the usefulness of ground work. Another aspect of the game that I feel is lacking was the content such as in fight commentating. This is becoming another Madden with the game reskined and minor things added. The online play at this point I found unplayable. I've played every UFC title that's been released yet I didn't stand a chance against the other online players. Many take advantage of lag and other things such as booser packs. I would avoid online unless with friends. Overall the game is good looking plays smoothly and can be fun but in my opinion the career mode is an RPG like grind but less fun and the online ranked matches are pointless. If you're a UFC fan I'd suggest playing it but not a game I'd buy.
I love UFC games, I have them all but this one was the worst for me. Career Mode was easy on the hardest difficulty, and it wasn't even fun. The part that killed me was how bad Online Servers and patching were. There's a glitch in UFC Gym where u can't escape Side control and will get KO'ed with knees. No patch has been released for it either. THQ did a poor job creating this game's online. Thankfully they had to sell it to EA, EA might not be amazing in making games but their online servers actually work and don't have glitches that make the game unplayable
