    Fundamentally sound gameplay, revolutionary control scheme, awesome Career experience, and expansive online offerings all make this game one of the best sports games of the year and is neck and neck with UFC Undisputed.

    This brash, good-looking newcomer has all of the usual EA spit and polish you would expect. [Issue#198, p.88]

    First off: If you're worried about the roster....and if you don't know these fighters... get to know them! They're some of the baddest on the planet no matter what Zuffa/UFC/Dana White claim. This game murders the UFC game... which I liked. Can't believe EA may already be considering not continuing the series because it's so darn satisfying. The play is fun, fluid, and rewarding. The career mode is a blast (can feel a little easy at first, but just up the difficulty once you get the hang of it). Online Live Event play is a blast with friends. Its just a freakin fun game.
