    The best representation of the action that happens inside the Octagon yet. While it’s not simple, the control scheme is still easy enough to learn that it takes the experience to an entirely new level as you break your opponents down standing up, in the clinch, or on the mat. With outstanding next-gen visuals, EA Sports UFC is good enough to carry around a championship belt.

    EA Sports went serious with EA Sports UFC. Beyond the awesomeness of it's graphics, the game impresses by its gameplay even if the casual gamer might get frightened after the tutorial. For a first try, this IP hits the top in spite of some drawbacks like an online multiplayer that needs work or the career mod which is quite repetitive and at last some hits that lack a true impact. On that last matter we have to say it's weird from a game as violent and brutal as EA Sports UFC.

    A good new beginning for the UFC series in its new EA Sports home. It surely could benefit some improvements in the career mode, but it results however in a solid game that every lover of this genre could be willing to try.

    A promising debut, but just too light on options - both inside and outside the Octagon - to be the champ it desperately wants to be.

    The striking is very satisfying, and the new submission system is interesting and creates a more level playing field than in the past, but the game is let down by poor wrestling and transition mechanics.

    EA Sports UFC looks the part to a tee, and its exhaustive list of moves and techniques represent the complex nature of the sport well. But knowing that each second could be your fighter’s last is what gives weight and drama to mixed martial arts, and without that, these bouts fall flat.

    EA Sports UFC doesn't cater to button mashers, so be wary if you're not eager to learn an overly-complex control scheme. More technical gamers will be able to appreciate the gameplay to a greater extent, but the laggy servers make even this an exercise in frustration.

    The best MMA game to date!

    With its limited development time, EA Canada put its emphasis where it matters the most: the gameplay!

    The controls may be daunting to newcomers, but it's a good exchange for the level of depth waiting to be explored and mastered.

    The sense one gets of total control over the fighters is immensely satisfying and convincing. You can dash in and out of harm's way as Machida, sway to land counters as Anderson, or break some bones as Nogueira.

    A career mode tops out exhibition fights to keep loners interested, but the true beauty of the game shines when facing other human competitors, and luckily the online offerings available are robust and executed with a craftsman's attention to detail. Matchmaking is fast, latency is generally great, and a belt system is sure to stoke the competitive flame of warriors across the globe.

    EAC has managed to produce an MMA game that is fundamentally solid and sure to serve as a fantastic groundwork for their next entries.

    Just picked it up yesterday, so this is a first impression. Gotta say I love the gameplay compared to previous iterations. The submissionJust picked it up yesterday, so this is a first impression. Gotta say I love the gameplay compared to previous iterations. The submission "mini game" is actually quite satisftying when landed. I really enjoy the gameplay overall and find it to be very fluid. The roster is close to 100, and they already mentioned they will be updating stats and adding new fighters..for free!! Anywho I would recommend this game for anyone looking for a great online fighting game experince/couch fighter you can have with your friends. Haven't played the career mode yet, but I bought it for the online competition. Expand

There's a reason thq went out of buisiness so stop talking about their mess of a game that was excactly the opposite of fun. EA's game is superior in every single way imaginable [ except there are only 2 game modes for single player- career and exibition] Not for those that pretend to be mma fans but actually know nothing and just mimic what they hear other people say. ( these people are easy to spot. Theire the ones who can't seem to stop bringing up pro wrestling and the wwe, even though they claim to despise it, yet can't stop talking about it) this is more for actual mma fans who might want to have some fun. Its not a perfect game.. Its just a FUN game. Its complicated because the sport is too. There's tutorials etc so its not an issue.. Expand

    the game itself is fun, the fights are intense and graphics are great. My created fighter shocked my fiance when she found out they werent athe game itself is fun, the fights are intense and graphics are great. My created fighter shocked my fiance when she found out they werent a real person. However, when the loading times are longer than a lot of the matches, it begins to get annoying. The training is good between fights, but it gets repetitive. I have enjoyed playing the game through about 20 matches in career mode, but find myself not even considering this game when I have spare time despite spending $60 on it less than two weeks ago. Great for UFC fans, but short of an epic game update, its not much more than something to waste ten minutes here or there. Expand

The single player mode is competent and fun, but the career mode is very flawed. A career is illogical and apathetic, some losses are inevitable in a somewhat absurd. In fights, submission attempts have complicated and unpleasant control! The standup is very fun and Ground and Pound too! Expand

    The Good first. Great graphics. Much better animations than old ufc games. Big roster selection. Now the bad part about this game. Ground andThe Good first. Great graphics. Much better animations than old ufc games. Big roster selection. Now the bad part about this game. Ground and submissions are still bad. Just a mad struggle for rotating thumbsticks, feels nothing like a chess match. Online is horrid. 1 out of every 3 matches will have 'opponent not found' errors. Spamming is rampant. Career mode is bare bones. Expand
