    The detailed Pride Mode and the new control settings for beginners alone would make UFC Undisputed 3 worth the money. Add the great career mode, over 150 original athletes and a perfect UFC atmosphere and you have a dream product for every MMA Fan.

    Despite a learning curve, gameplay is very smooth, with a first-class presentation, from the fighter introductions, to the actual UFC announcers and referees, to the good audio features of the crowd and impact of punches and kicks onto each fighter.

    The solid base THQ built themselves two years ago has progressed massively, making this game the most complete experience yet.

    UFC Undisputed 3 is a triumphant return for the ultimate fighting champion, with more modes and options than you can shake a clenched fist at. In the octagon, the action is tighter, more fluid and still fun to play, but the submission system seems like a misstep and overall, we can't shake the feeling that deep down, it's essentially more of the same.

    That Pride mode is a doozy. [Issue#119, p.108]

    The gaming mechanics and presentation are spot-on, but the UFC fighting feels a bit too stiff sometimes.

Graphically, the game is superb, the controls have been adapted to give new gamers a starting point (simplified ground controls), career mode has been improved, you can now use fighters from the UFC roster as well as your own creations.

    The biggest addition is PRIDE mode, with authentic presentation and a completely different set of rules, there is plenty of variety in the game to keep you fighting.

    Finally. THQ have done the right thing for the first time in the series. They listened to critics of the fans and made the game even betterFinally. THQ have done the right thing for the first time in the series. They listened to critics of the fans and made the game even better than it was. Career is now even better that it used to be, filled with a lot more action and a lot less of "managing". Submission system has been revamped to BETTER, now with indication how close you are to a victory. 100+ fighters will guarantee that not a single fight will ever be the same. And have I mentioned amazing commentary? As far as it goes for me, this game is just as good as you would expect from an UFC game. Expand

    Are you ready? You Ready? LETS FIGHT!

    UFC makes a sensational return this year, and after WWE ‘12, THQ and Yukes team up again for this Mixed Martial Arts based title.

    Undisputed 3 brings a more technical feel to the table (or octagon in this case) to that of WWE. Using basic fighting techniques and more “specialised” moves that are learned as you progress through the game, your aim is to become No.1, fighting through rounds against opponents to win by KO, Technical KO and Submission Tap Outs.

    With all the new mod cons this year, its character build and attributes give you an opportunity to fine tune, improve and master moves within world renowned gyms. Add in major customisable aspects including tattoos, banners, and there is even a logo design hub (for the lil graphic designer in you). UFC really takes the personalised approach to the core.

    Offered up for bludgering is an array of modes including Title Defence, Event Creation, all new PRIDE options and the unmissable Career Mode. Career is the place to be for becoming fighting’s best, working your way from n00b to Hall of Fame Legend through bouts, all important training sessions and camp sessions.

    Throw in some added bonus sponsorship deals and you‘ll just be getting the picture. The SHOP section in-game is a great way to show off those sponsors (10 at a time) on tees, hoodies, cowboy hats plus my favourite a kimono jacket.

    Even with AI difficulty on its hardest setting posing a challenge, what would any fighter game be without online play? Pitting your offence, defence and hard graft against an actual human in the reformed online experience, and there are no real changes in play to the offline modes.

    THQ keep on advancing, noticeably with the huge rosters of players (150+), all recognisable real life fighters. Movements are fluent at most, and controls are responsive under the thumbs. UFC brings a big buzz when fists, feet and blood are flying, drawing you in when racking up those combos.

    UFC Undisputed 3 is a vast improvement on the previous game and while not everybody’s choice of game, I would recommended it to any fighter fan.

    I had this idea for a movie one time, It was going to basically be a what if instead story about rocky balboa becoming a UFCfighter. NewsflashI had this idea for a movie one time, It was going to basically be a what if instead story about rocky balboa becoming a UFCfighter. Newsflash he would get his ass kicked and no one would of cared. UFC Undisputed 3 made me fell like my story came to life was made into a game and then people beat my ass in it. This game is a guilty pleasure, I liked the idea of been a borderline murderer who was fighting another borderline murderer. That was it tho is was just a game about been the best borderline murderer. It was fun at parts the controls were ok not great. It was a really nice, policed WWE game with some what better graphics. That's all it is tho just a ok game. I rather play mortal kombat then this but if you want to play a good sports/fighting game then try it if you want. Expand

The career is excellent with tons of other modes to do. Online has little to no lag even against a red ping. The elbow spam has been removed and submissions have a visual game to show how close or how far away a tap out is. No more controller shining. Collapse

Ignoring online play, this game has very few downsides. And, At first I was totally happy with the $80+ I spent on the game and DLC. But, that was before THQ showed that they have no respect for their customers. The online play is in desperate need of a patch. 8 months later, after repeatedly being told by THQ (on their forums) that it will be out soon, and that their customers and fans are important to them, they still haven't released the patch. At this point, as evidenced by the forums, the entire UFC3 community has been alienated by THQ. There was one employee who tried to mediate, but he left for a new job a couple months ago and no THQ employee has communicated a word since.

    Most replay value in a game comes from online play. I could still love this game, if on-line play was fixed and not completely broken. But, it seems it will always be broken, because THQ isn't concerned with their word or ethics, just $$s.

    The whole situation is just sad for everyone that bought that game.
