    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.
  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]
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  6. 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]

    The fighters look great... until they move, anyway. But they've looked pretty good for years now and the lack of innovation combined with the gimme-some-Viagra blahness is disheartening to say the least.

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