EA's effort into a MMA game is a good start, hopefully more to come
29 January 2015
Summary: EA's effort into a MMA game is a good start, hopefully more to come. The fighter models are excellent right down the body proportions, and the blood effects are very real. The game does suffer from some weird animations on knockdowns sometimes (like their Madden franchise does), and it seems like it takes ALOT of damage to knock out your opponent. But overall, not a bad game, hopefully the next one is better. A good first effort...
Summary: I am a big UFC fan, but came into playing this game a bit skeptical as the past UFC games have been underwhelming in that they do not give the true feel of two fighters squaring off. The ground game is really where my biggest complaint is as it does not give the sense of constant motion and attempts to better position. Stand up is quite a bit of fun, but in general doesn't give the feel of an MMA fight and more of just kickboxing.
Summary: I like this game. I don't love this game though. I prefer its predecessor. I think they left out a lot in this. I think they needed more of the roster. More moves. The controls were ok. I loved the graphics on the PS4. The commentary in game was great. Just liked the other modes in the predecessor.
Summary: There is a limit to how many fights you can fight in the story mode but either way I still enjoyed this game and played it several times. I liked how on "UFC Undisputed" when you would retire they would actually retire you in front the crowd after your last fight in the octagon. This however doesn't happen in this game.
