Excerpt: Overall, Yuke’s (developer) did a pretty okay job with the accessibility of UFC Undisputed 2010, or at least as good a job as was expected. The only issue that visually impaired AbleGamers will likely come across is the problem with a white font being used and a dimly tinted yellow being used to highlight it - not high-contrast, and if you’re not paying attention, the cursor may not be the easiest thing to find.
Excerpt: Jumping into UFC 2010 Undisputed feels a bit like your first day back at school after the summer holidays. You recognise a few faces and the general layout of everything, but there's also a surprising amount that's changed, too. The world has evolved, and if you get cocky and try to do things the old way, you might find yourself being brought back to earth with a bump. Also, there are big boys (well, men really) who push you around and put you in painful headlocks.
Excerpt: At this time last year, I couldn't have cared less about the UFC or mixed martial arts in general. My attitude changed when THQ released the stellar UFC Undisputed and blew me away. Now a full-blown MMA fanatic, I stepped up to the challenge of UFC Undisputed 2010 with expectations set high and to be short; Undisputed 2010 does not disappoint. Last year's UFC had over 80 fighters to choose from on the roster.
Conclusion: It's definitely a year of refinement for the UFC Undisputed franchise. Still rough round the edges, we're lucky such a quality base was put in place last year for a series that'll only continue to get better. 2010 is much more accessible, and as the sport continues to increase in popularity, the perfect game for those who admire the real-thing.
Summary: UFC Undisputed 2010 is an improvement in just about every way over its predecessor. The combat has even more depth without sacrificing accessibility, the roster has been more than doubled, the career mode has seen some interesting and viable changes, and there are more modes to play around with that are actually worth playing. If you nab the PS3 version, you’ll get access to some nice exclusives as well.
Excerpt: Last year, playing UFC Undisputed was quite a surprise for me: I wasn’t expecting much going into the game, and it didn’t take long to turn me into a fan. With its graphical prowess and ability to fully covey the sport of UFC, it was also a hit with the fans of the event itself. There were a few things that didn’t work perfectly, so like any good company would do, THQ went back into the War Room and laid out some changes for the second iteration.
Summary: UFC Undisputed features an authentic and comprehensive UFC atmosphere, poised to deliver intelligent and intuitive combat, increased fighter customization, robust career progression, challenging new gameplay modes and explosive online offerings,
Summary: While it may be easy to dismiss this as merely a roster update with some tweaks, this game is far from it. I’m a huge fan of the Smackdown Vs Raw series (also by THQ) but I also realize that it’s pretty much the same game each year. Undisputed 2010 feels like an entirely different game than 2009, from the presentation to the fighting stances to everything else – going back to play 2009 is impossible for me now.
