    If you're a die-hard fan or are looking for a highly technical fighter, it has some serious depth to offer. For everyone else, I highly recommend a rental.
  2. The fighting is fun, but the presentation problems do get in the way just enough to become an issue.

    While it isn't the defining UFC console experience, the career mode and two-player competitions are worth your time, especially when you've created and developed your own fighter.
  4. Nintendo Power
    It's sorta quick and dirty, just like the actual UFC. [July 2002, p.148]
  5. It shows a real effort to make a solid representation of UFC. It works solidly. What I don’t like, however, is that it’s lacking the flair and pizzazz of a fighter.
  6. Like the difference between a fight in real-life (scrappy, brawling, inelegant) and a fight from your favourite movie (balletic, graceful, dynamic), buy this if you like to see two blokes battering each other into submission. If you like a bit of style, skill and excitement with your violence, don't bother.
  7. If you need a fighter fix UFC would be the place to go for Cube owners, boring or not it's pretty much all you've got for now.
