    EA Sports UFC is form over function. It's all show, no go, a pretty fighter without the know-how to back it up in the octagon. The Ignite engine successfully delivers a game which makes casual observers double-take as they attempt to work out if they're watching the real thing or not, but anyone with the controller in their hand will know something is wrong.

    Most balanced online mode in a next generation console title. I can pick any fighter and use their abilities to my advantage and win. Once you get used to the controls, the game play is very well laid out and detailed. Amazing online modes, the belt ranking system is a winner. If you already know MMA, you will have the advantage in this game. Great job by EA Canada on Full Review »

    great game. The most obvious thing, it looks brilliant. It plays great, controls take some getting used to, but once you do they feel good and natural. Roster could be bigger, but I think I saw somewhere that we might get free DLC fighters (I'd say unlikely cosindering it's EA). Submission system is not the best thing out there, but still better than wiggling thumb sticks. Overall, I love this game. Not perfect, but very well made Full Review »

    Metacrtic User Reviews are at it again, in full force. THere is no way this game is a TEN, and there is no way this game is a ZERO either. It is disappointing, yes, from a simulation perspective. The game is not sim at all, it is an arcade fighter with some real life elements mixed in. If you like arcade style fighers, you will enjoy it. It is a fun arcade experience, but a terrible representation of real MMA. The roster is very lacking too. No TJ Dillashaw, no Diego Sanchez, lots of good fighters missing. EA needs to patch the stamina and AI to make fights more realistic. Full Review »
