Excerpt: For a sport as popular as mixed martial arts it is hard to believe there has been only one real contender in the gaming space thus far. EA Sports is hoping to remedy that with their latest addition to the lineup simply title MMA.
Excerpt: We’re glad to see Kung Fu Factory — developer of the mediocre Supremacy MMA — dust itself off and create a better mixed-martial-arts game. Unfortunately, this Live Arcade cage-fight contender isn’t quite championship material. For most of the bout, Bellator impresses with proficient standup combat.
Pros: + Simple-yet-deep striking system rewards efficient fisticuffs.
Cons: - Submission system is broken and in dire need of rebalancing., ? Can 345 use the time before EA's UFC game ships to make
Conclusion: Supremacy MMA is rated M for Mature with ESRB descriptors of Blood, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Drugs, and Violence. Of course the game is violent, it’s a fighting game. But the injuries and hits are pretty realistic and more brutal because of that.

that, putting together various attires for your
fighter is rather boring, especially scrolling
through nearly 200 parts of designs.
Excerpt: It’s not often that EA finds themselves in the position of the challenger with something to prove, but after the incredible success of last year’s UFC game, and this year’s entry taking a fantastic game and making it even better, EA Sports MMA certainly had some high expectations to live up to.
Excerpt: MMA is unabashedly obsessed with violence. Practised, controlled and precise violence, perhaps, but you only need listen to the riotous bellows of the audience when a heavy blow tears through a rival's skin to realise society is still trading on the pain and primal thrill of blood sports.
Conclusion: For those who don't know UFC had a gaming series on the previous generation of consoles, EA MMA have come out fighting with this game and I look forward to a rivalry between UFC and EA in the future, just to let everyone know EA announced in December that a sequel was still in the works despite the...
Excerpt: Hey you, do you enjoy watching steroid-fuelled, almost naked, shaven-headed men violently rubbing against each other like it’s the last days of the Roman Empire? If so, you’re probably already acquainted with the wondrous face-smashing world of MMA, also known as Mixed Martial Arts.
