Better then UFC 1 but still lacks

M. Kivlehen, Amazon

  • Summary: This games cool. My friends cousin is in the game. (Pete William) The graphics are pretty good. The modes are better then the first one. But my compaint is the same as the first one. Matches end way to quickly. I want more of a stragetic sim game engine involved. Why don't ground battles last 10 minutes or longer? It still feels like a button masher game. The moves are hard to pull off. The create a character mode is way too shallow.

REALISTIC BUT NOT A GREAT GAME

Travis Massa, Amazon

  • Summary: 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.

They blew it with this game.

  • Summary: What a disapointment... I waited months for this game to be released. It COULD have been so much more... (If you have the option, get the X-box version of this game.) Single player is fun for about 2 - 4 hours, then redundancy kicks in like a full frontal lobatomy. Two player is not a lot better. For a game that claims it's the closest thing to actually stepping in the ring, the excitement is lost somehow.

  • Excerpt: "Ultimate Fighting Championship is still a relatively underground sport for most and so the game was a nice surprise, however maybe they should have spent a bit longer. It looks really good when you see your fighter coming down the rampready to fight but this is infinitely better than the actual gameplay. Performing basic moves is simple, punches kicks etc, but trying to put together anything more complex usually results in beating the opponent with ...
  • Pros: Good looking game, characters look like themselves
  • Cons: hard to play in a controlled manner, and spend most of the time watching it load between fights

Not The Ultimate Fighter

  • Excerpt: "*Introduction* The Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC for short is a relatively unknown and often misunderstood sport. Basically it's a martial arts event held in a cage that hopes to prove that one style is more effective than another. Over the years it has spurned the birth of cross training and the art of mixed martial arts that takes the best parts of different styles to create a more effective way of competing. A lot of people think that ...
  • Pros: nice fighter entrances
  • Cons: poor gameplay, not much improvement, unrealistic
