    A bloody, intense game that almost perfectly captures all of the excitement of the world's premiere fighting sport. [Mar 2003, p.49]
  2. The most impressive and unique highlight of Pride FC is its international cast of playable fighters. Unlike UFC, which only has a handful for foreign-bred entrants, Pride's line-up consists of a wide-range of fighters with different fighting styles from around the world.
  3. Not only gives you a realistic fighting challenge, but also manages to make it look really good while doing so. However, it does suffer from some setbacks, like a poor selection of moves, and a very steep learning curve.

    It's nice but a career mode would've made it a hundred times better.

    Hows it going, I just came back from sea, I'm in the Navy, and when I came back to San Diego, my little cousin told me about this game, Hows it going, I just came back from sea, I'm in the Navy, and when I came back to San Diego, my little cousin told me about this game, so I went yesterday to Target, and I bought the game, and I was like DAMN! this game is shisnicks, I especially like it how you can create your own fighter, that part was pretty bomb.

    The game is more realistic than ufc but lacks in the career mode or stat tracking.
