    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
