  • Summary: UFC: Tapout perfectly portrays the real-life mixed-martial arts pay-per-view spectacular; complete with stylized fighter entrances and signature submission moves. A full roster of the world's most accomplished athletes, including current UFC middleweight world champion Tito Ortiz, as well as classic brawlers like Dan Severn, await and promise to offer gamers more full contact fighting than any other title ever created.

  1. Simply put, UFC is the most realistic fighting game ever. [Apr 2002, p.68]
  2. An excellent, original fighting game that's especially fun for two players.

    Getting a quick tapout or countering a move and shoving your opponent's face in the ground got a yelp of joy out of me many times.
  4. 80
    Despite these imperfections, though, UFC: Tapout still reigns victorious.
  5. Within two hours we beat every Championship mode, and made it through ten of the arcade matches, where we were quickly squashed by the cheap AI. It's a shame, because we were having so much playing up until that point.
  6. I can't tell how totally creeped out I am by a select screen covered with near naked men so real looking you can see their pit hair, who all look like they're a Skoal can away from a Springer episode. [Apr 2002, p.63]
  7. On one hand, it’s got quite a good structure and the technical style is impressive, but on the other it’s just not fun to play.
