I think this game is great for any UFC or MMA fan. For those who want a fighting game like Tekken or DOA you might be disapointed. This is a reality based fighting game. That means realistic moves and combos. No power ups or weapons. I found that the most fun is playing against other UFC fans. They have a lot of current and legendary UFC fighters but I just have one question about the game. WHERE'S RANDY CONTURE? I don't see how the could have made this game without him. Overall its fun to step into the octagon. At least rent it, its worth a look.

This is my favorite fighting game I have played. It combines striking with wrestling, letting you beat an opponent if you are skilled enough, even when you are about to get knocked out. Every fighter has his own patented moves and style, adding to the diversity of the game. My friends and I never get tired of the bone crunching hits and submissions. Unlocking new moves and fighters keeps things interesting while playing solo. If you want the most realistic way of beating people - without actually doing it, get UFC throwdown.

UFC Throwdown is a decent game. Not really much more to say than that. You either like it or hate it. Graphically, it's pretty basic and sometimes during truly intense match-ups, choppy. Realism is very good. Length of the average match, about 20 seconds. Again, you should rent this if anything else first because I'm sorry but no one deserves a ($) hole in their wallet. Have fun and Happy Gaming!

This is a fantastic game for UFC and MMA fans in general. You can do your own version of some of the great UFC battles of all time, like the incredible Frank Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz fight or Jens Pulver vs. BJ Penn, or have some fantasy matchups you wish you could have seen, like Vitor Belfort vs Ortiz or Shamrock.
My only complaint is that knockouts can come a little fast if you are playing the computer, or if two beginners are playing. If two skilled and practiced players are going against each other, the attacks and counters can truly become almost a sort of chess match. Against the computer or someone new to the game, you can score a knockout in 10 to 20 seconds, against other skilled players, I've had fights actually go to decision.
Another great item is some of the signature moves the fighters have that you can aquire after a while.
For beginners who just get this game and want to develop a feel for it, I recommend selecting either Frank Shamrock or Tito Ortiz. They are the best in the game, and in my opinion the best in real life, and the easiest to learn with, particularly if you are trying to figure out how to put together combinations.
After reading most of the complaints on here, it seems like it mostly comes from video game fanboys who have no appreciation for reality fighting and the UFC. They seem upset that it isn't a clone of every other fighting game out there. Big deal! I can get the standard fighting game by selecting something else. I wanted this because it's realistic. You won't find your characters jumping ten feet into the air and launching balls of energy at their opponents. If you want that, go get the new Mortal Kombat or something.

UFC Throwdown is a decent game i had some spare cash and decided to purchase it. The game isnt that great i mean it's not bad either but it has alot of flaws. You cant fight up against the fence wich sucks, there aren't that many fighters. If your a BIG UFC fan then you should get it but if your not than your not missing out. Im a big mma fan but this game could be better i recommmend that you purchase UFC Sudden Impact, PRIDE Fc, and K-1 Grand Prix all for the PS2 they are better mma games than UFC Throwdown

It's true, UFC Throwdown is very realistic, no question. The moves and actual fighting itself is realistic and almost exactly like the UFC matches you see in real life. Here's the problem: What's realistic doesn't always necessarily make for a great video game. Yes, in real life you can KO an opponent with a single punch two seconds into a fight. Yes, in real life you can put one submission hold on someone and take them out in five seconds flat. All that is true. But who wants to play a game like that? Not me. The matches are ridiculously short and end far too quickly. Again, it's realistic, but just not all that much fun to play. As a player, I don't necessarily want a totally unrealistic fighting game either, but why can't they create one that's somewhere in the middle? UFC Throwdown was a perfect opportunity to do just that, and they missed the boat. The UFC may be exciting from a spectator position, but video games are supposed to be exciting from an INTERACTIVE position, and this one, realistic or not, just isn't.

This game comes off as the first step in what could be a promising future for mixed martial arts video games. The controls are very basic, even overly simple. Your fighters actions are limited, the stand-up fighting is good, but the submition fighting and ground-and-pound are terribly simplistic. It takes a short time to get the hang of the controls, but the game can be mastered in about half an hour, and after that it is incredibly repetitive. No matter how good you are at the game, you inevitably lose one out of every ten or so fights by getting caught in a random submition. Good groundwork for future games of the same type, but for now (overall) not captivating, but entertaining for mixed martial arts fans who have some time to kill (and don't want to kill it in the gym). I couldn't see playing this game for more than half an hour at a time, once a week, and only that often thanks to the inclusion of Bas Rutten. War Bas. War.
