    Without a doubt the best MMA videogame ever made, EA Sports UFC 4 supplements a welcome array of new offline and online modes with a revamped and endlessly sophisticated combat system that everybody can enjoy. For MMA fans it doesn't get any better than this.

    EA Sports UFC 4 shows that the quality of a sports game is far more important than the amount of quantity in it. UFC 4 improves and adds areas that needed work. It brings in new systems and tighter control designs to make the experience for more entertaining than previous years. This is the best of the best in the UFC series right now, and there is still good room to grow it.

    Definitely an evolution rather than a revolution for EA, UFC 4 continues to deliver the slick, brutal and intelligent combat that we're used to but we're still not sure about its ground game and would like to have seen a bit more of a celebration of the sport.

    EA Sports UFC 4 is the best entry on the sport to date. Smart tweaks to the grappling system make it feel more fluid and natural, and a revamped series of modes will keep you coming back for more.

    UFC 4 is an incredible MMA game, but it needs more content. It’s a step forward gameplay-wise, but we feel like it also needs to evolve outside the ring.

    EA Sports has scrapped Ultimate Team from UFC 3, made a few minimal (UI) updates and put a FIFA cover on it. Please, here you have UFC 4. It's that the ten-year-old fighting system still delivers some really brutal brawls, otherwise this would be a complete joke. If you already own UFC 3, I don't see any reason to buy this part.

It's just as empty as every other EA game and while the visuals and fighting do feel quite nice, the game modes are far too bare bones and there is very little to actually do. Expand

    Empty career mode, online gameplay solely based on random gnp. No way to chose weight classes online. Step back from ufc3

    Could've easly been an update to UFC 3, PS3 Graphics and animations, striking feels like two cotton stuffed puppets hitting each others.

    Could've easly been an update to UFC 3, PS3 Graphics and animations, striking feels like two cotton stuffed puppets hitting each others.
    What really makes me sick is the fact that they didn't care about developing a game that simulates the overall UFC experience, they went with a clown fiesta instead.
    This game is so poor that looks like it's been developed in one year.
