  • Summary: Ultimate Fighting Championship for the PlayStation doesn't have anything to offer beyond the good name of its Dreamcast counterpart.

    The one-player match is a hassle. If you buy this game, buy it for the multiplayer matches.
  2. We wailed on the controller and got a few laughs out of the game but in the end it just doesn't match the excellence of its Dreamcast brother.
  3. The problem is that unless you have the patience to put up with the AI's single-minded fighting style, for the most part you will find joy only in the two-player battles.
  4. This game should have never left the training room.
  5. Unfortunately the grappling in the PSOne version of UFC is quite a bit less complex than the Dreamcast version's, with only one button combination used for most throws and one for counters. This makes successfully grappling an opponent much harder.
  6. No matter how big of a fan of the UFC you may be, the game's poor control and graphics just simply ruin the game and make it totally unenjoyable.

    This is one of the most challenging games I have ever played. It took days before I won my first fight against the computerized fighters. Great game!

    This is the best fighting game I have played so far. I get tired of games where characters are doing impossible moves. It is very annoying to be wailing on a guy, and have him almost dead, and have him throw some sort of fireball, and toast you. This game is the most realistic fighting game I have seen. Playing it takes a bit of practice, but so far I think it is worth the effort. Expand

    I have read a lot from reviews that this game sucks, and i admit im not impressed but the graphics. I love the game because you can really learn from the moves. They're actual good moves and its a great break from the fake and unrealistic horde of wrestling games out there. Collapse

    William F., this is not a true statement. There are numerous Fighters on the game, that when faced by a stand up fighter will in turn try to fight standing as well with fewer grapple attempts. Granted you still have to dodge the occasional takedown attempt, but after the first few tackles, they give up trying as much and try to brawl and knock you out. Expand

    Submissions is all the computer does leaving you with a average 5 sec. match. The 2 player mode against friends makes this game better but against cpu it sucks. Expand

    You buy this game because your a fan. You love watching UFC. This game comes very close to turning off those fans. With the simplicity of controls and lack of substance. This game leaves a lot to be desired. But if you like hearing bones break. By all means. If you're looking to dominate this game in one sitting. You're playing the two player option or the training with Big John. It takes a lot of patience to get the timing and tendancies down pat. Expand
