  1. It is, at heart, one of the best unconventional brawling titles out there. UFC fans, though, will be disappointed by the fact that the game hardly ever “beefs” up the televised-style presentation to make the fights seem as memorable as they are in real life.
  2. The biggest complaint about Tapout 2 is that it doesn't really capture the wild differences in fighting styles that make the UFC what it is. As is, it's the best non-traditional fighting game on Xbox by a mile. [May 2003, p.76]

    The most impressive feature in Tapout 2 is the redesigned visuals. Dream Factory chose to completely redo the graphics to make them look more life-like and as authentic as the real deal.
  4. It was definitely more fun playing with a rowdy group of guys and the matches seemed to last longer the more we drank.

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