Sports games fall on a continuum of Difficult Simulation and Fun Arcade Game. This UFC Game is right in the Middle. It's got all of the current weight classes, fighters, personalities, graphics, introductions, from the sport, so it feels really authentic. The gameplay is complicated and takes about a week to learn. But, MMA is complicated because it combines punches, kicks, wrestling body control, and jujitsu submissions. All of these disciplines play pretty well and after you learn how to play, the game is fun.
Exhibition - 1 fight - pick a weight class, 2 fighters, and go at it.
Title - take a famous UFC fighter and fight your way through the contenders to become the champ.
Title Defense - Once you are the champ, fight the best of the best to keep your title.
Career Mode - Create and Manage your fighter, train to become better in certain aspects of MMA, and fight your way to the top.
VS Mode - fight a buddy - (Offline ONLY)
It feels like there are so many ways to lose in an MMA fight. You can get beaten down for 3 rounds and lose a decision. You can get beaten down severely and get KO'ed. You can get hit with a flurry of powerful strikes in rapid succession and get a flash KO. You can get thrown onto the ground, dominated, and KO'ed. You can get thrown to the ground and submitted. But all of these techniques can be used on your opponent, too. Knowing when to use the techniques is as important as knowing how to use them.
Standing and trading punches and kicks. You can target your opponent's head for a KO, the body to drain your opponent's stamina, or the legs to slow them down and nullify their takedowns. You get BONUS damage for excellent timing. If you catch an opponent coming in and beat them to the punch, you do more damage. If you dodge their attack and counter, you also deal Bonus damage. This takes a while to get used to, but once you do, it's pretty fun. You can also catch kicks by grabbing your opponent's leg and counter punch them in the face. Not only is this rewarding, but it also deals bonus damage. On the easier difficulties, the game is almost 100% striking. It's a good way to learn. As you play harder difficulties, the AI starts incorporating other aspects of MMA like grappling, transitions, clinches, ground and pound, and submissions.
You can grab your opponent in a clinch, deliver knees, elbows, and punches, or throw them onto the ground. Once you're on the ground, you can move the R Stick in semi-circles to change your position. You can pull the right stick to "block" or cancel an opponent's transitions and keep them where they are. You can grapple from the top and bottom while delivering punches and kicks to ground and pound your enemies. Certain positions on the ground yield better results. For example, if you are in your opponent's guard, you can't punch very hard because you can only swing your arms. If you get on top of them in a full mount, you can deliver haymakers to their body and head and go for a KO. Grappling is pretty easy once you learn the positions and how to block your opponent's transitions. But it takes a while to "get it."
When you are grappling, you can click the R stick to go for an arm bar, choke, etc... This brings up an Octagon with a Player 1 BAR and a Player 2 Bar. The length and speed of the bar is determined by your grappling skill and current stamina. Each Player can move their bar around the octagon shaped track. (like 2 trains) In order to submit your opponent, you just have to overlap part of their bar with part of yours. This is easy when you both have large bars. To make an opponent TAP OUT, you have to keep your bar over theirs and a gauge starts to fill. But you have a limited amount of time to fill it, otherwise your opponent escapes from the submission attempt. The bars can pass through each other, so you can try to move away, or move through the other Player's bar to escape. It's kinda fun, and very suspenseful.
In career mode, there are training exercises to boost your stats. These are 2 minute mini-games where you practice your moves. Depending on how well you did, you get stat boosts for your next fight! But training in opposite disciplines may actually lower your stats in the opposite discipline. So if you are a striker who wants to learn grappling or submissions, your punch and kick stats may drop a little bit. When training, it's important to be well rounded, but not abandon your most effective techniques. Most of the games are easy, but you don't get to practice them. They just throw you into them and you have to do your best in 2 minutes. It's frustrating at first, but gets easier later on.
The graphics look pretty good and authentic to the UFC. The venues, octagons, and crowds look great. The fighters all look like their real life counterparts, but they could look a bit better. When the fighters take damage, their face swells, they bleed, sweat, and their body and legs turn reddish-purple from the repeated hits.
The music is great and the commentary is from Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg. Most of the time, the commentary is on the mark, but sometimes, they'll say something strange.
The THQ servers are down because THQ went bankrupt. There was online support, but not anymore.
If you like the sport, you've seen blood and fighting. There's no profanity or anything that you wouldn't expect while watching a UFC.
Replay Value: 8/10
Since the game takes a while to learn and even longer to master, you'll be playing it for a long time. However, the lack of an online multiplayer mode really hurts. I'd recommend going through the tutorial, then a bunch of exhibition fights first. Then take a pre-made fighter and fight your way to the title. Once you are familiar with ALL aspects of MMA, try the Career Mode.
If you are willing to put in the hours, the game is fun! Because it's so difficult, every win feels great! You can enjoy the UFC game for at least a month, even without online mode. I'd recommend it if you are a fan or casual observer of the UFC.
Unfortunately, THQ is no more and EA bought the UFC license. Hopefully the EA Curse won't affect the UFC and hopefully, they'll make great games.
Like Fight Night, the animations and game play are slower, your character has to train to improve his skills between fights, and the character models range from perfect to a bit goofy (Brock Lesnar, for example, looks a bit too thin and like a monkey. lol). Like the WWE game, there are a lot of customization options and techniques to choose from. So, no two fighters you build ever have to play the same way. You choose which techniques to learn and level up.
You manage your training, your camp goals, your game-plans, and your sponsors between fights. The results of your choices and your training performances determine whether or not you get stronger, get faster, improve footwork, learn moves, etc.
The sound in incredible! The actual voices of Joe Rogan, Bruce Buffer, Mike Goldberg, the refs! Rocking soundtrack music, authentic tunes that the UFC uses to this very day, and excellent sound effects in the ring.
The roster is full of big names you will know, even if you are only a casual MMA fan. If you have been paying attention since PRIDE, you are going to love the fighters offered.
Presentation is authentic UFC. It gets you pumped up for the fiight, features pre-fight commentary like every UFC Fight Night. A lot of nice touches here. It feels like you are fighting on a card in the UFC. (or Pride)
The only CONS? The training between fights gets tedious and frustrating. Movement inside the octagon is slow and sometimes frustrating. Load times are a bit too long a bit too often. Some moves are difficult to pull off. The ground game is not as exciting as the stand-up.
BUT, everything else is nearly perfect and the game is a lot of fun to play. Also, I wish they would have given us a few fun treats, like letting us play as Joe Rogan, Dana White, Bruce Buffer, and Mike Goldberg!!!
Ultimately. this is a nearly perfect game that needs very little improvement. Once the UFC games get a strong women's MMA feature and improve gameplay issues, this will be a franchise we'll a;; buy every year the way we do WWE games, COD, Battlefield, etc.
BUY IT. Worth three times as much as is being charged now.
