    While the fighting engine is still solid and the game remains fun, its total lack of significant improvements may kill any need to purchase the sequel.

    While it's a serviceable MMA game, the UFC series has been dusted by "Pride FC" for PS2.
  3. While the game has a nice look to it and plays just fine, it doesn't really stray too far from the series' original design, and as such it feels like the same thing we've been playing for three years.

    No ambition equals low score. That's just the way it goes. [May 2003, p.90]
  5. It is truly unfortunate to see that this game, a graphical masterpiece with great Xbox sound features, is so heavily weighed down by lack of options and unique modes.

    The fighters here look great in a shiny Ken doll sort of way, but the gameplay and general presentation are merely passable. [May 2003, p.134]

    Personally if you want a solid UFC fighting game, buy the first one since it’s cheaper and overall a better game.

    Ultimately, the game's strict adherence to realism trips it up. [June-July 2003, p.95]

    For those who aren't impressed by flashy graphics, Tapout 2 doesn't present as much innovation as other recently released fighting games on other platforms. [May 2003, p.52]

    The fighting is way too simple. And they didn't include hardly any of my favorite ufc fighters.
