    More wet slap than knockout blow. [Oct 2012, p.101]

    To keep things short and sweet: I see no reasons to play MMA Onslaught. Bellator licence and a handful of well recreated real fighters mean nothing if the game itself is lousy. [10/2012, p.65]

    Bellator MMA Onslaught is a failed attempt to propose a complex discipline as mixed martial arts in digital delivery, renounce to include a variety of feature that would be crucial for its success.

    A slighty over-average game that has some good points, like its perspective and character editor, but also lacks much more game modes and fighters, something that is unforgivable in a fighting game. Although it is not a perfect game and it is even far from being very good, this is a meritable approach to MMA sports.

    Bellator: MMA Onslaught has very nice graphics and good A.I. It's just a shame that the animations are so clunky and bad. It feels like MMA Onslaught isn't a finished product, because of the few options and the horrible animations.

    It's nice and easy to create your very own MMA fighter, but the gameplay just isn't here and Bellator: MMA Onslaught lacks both in the depth and career mode.

    Gross MMA arcade fighting game, with official license, only eight fighters, clunky animations and a bad combat system.

    There's just not enough here to warrant even a $15 price. The game includes only eight fighters in two divisions, and no real career mode to encourage long-term play. With more fighters and more easily unlocked bonus video content, the game would've offered a better introduction to this relatively new fighting league.

    Overall Bellator MMA Onslaught has the base to be a good game, however there are just far too many niggles at the moment. It is a game that feels like another year of development would have worked wonders. Working on the animations so that everything linked together in a more natural way and fleshing out the modes on offer would have made this a worthy purchase. As it is though, it is one to pick up only if you are desperately after a fighting game.

    Even if you want to buy this because you're an MMA fan, I'll just warn you to try this game first before committing the hard drive space. If this is what Bellator's bringing to the small MMA sub-genre in the video game market, I don't think EA has anything to worry about when they start working on the next UFC game.

    Maybe the next Bellator game can be a full-featured MMA simulation experience, but this first title is just not going to work.
