Simultaneous two-fighter interaction brings the ground game to life with greater responsiveness and variety. Surprise your opponent with a flying armbar from the clinch, or with a quick transition from a knee bar to a heel hook. Standing submissions and submission chaining have been added. Add an improved blocking and parrying system to the mix and you have new tools to fend off your opponent’s most devastating attacks. Expand

    Even though the grappling system is slowed down and pre-fight sequences lack the familiar trash talking, UFC 2 is a great transition of sport into the digital realm. It is the closest we've been to feeling how it is to fight inside the octagon.

    Where the first EA Sports UFC failed to go big on content, EA Sports UFC 2 delivers big time. That it also successfully improves upon the strong foundations laid by UFC 1 in the gameplay stakes, makes UFC 2 nothing short of superlative. It's a winner.

    EA Sports makes its second appearance in the UFC’s famed Octagon. The fighter’s sophomore effort is solid: it has good technique, impresses visually and feels like the real thing, although its ground game could be better. UFC 2 is a contender in the making. [May 2016]

    EA Sports UFC 2 is the culmination of what has been learned the past two years, as the game is far richer in content, has a greater focus on authenticity, and is trying to please fans of the sport over those who couldn't care less about it.

    Those who have already found themselves smitten with the series will find plenty to enjoy the second time around.

    UFC 2 is hard to get into and not as rewarding to play as it should be, but its smart system design, presentation, and generous helping of content should keep UFC fans occupied – provided they make it through a gruelling training camp first.

    Microtransactions and the brutal learning curve make UFC 2 hard to play and even harder to recommend.

    Well, good way, how do just relax for short time and give few rounds in octagon. This game is more focused to fight simulation. And simulationWell, good way, how do just relax for short time and give few rounds in octagon. This game is more focused to fight simulation. And simulation model is much better than in first UFC. Game controls seems complicated, but after a few round you will understand the system and just enjoy fight, every round. And the best improvement are real-time hints to grabs and ground fighting. It changed no playable game to really funny thing.
    But that is all, do not expect something more. Just choose fighters and fight. It is the main content of this game and reason, why you should (or not) byu this game. Is it enough for you?

    Graphics are insane and combat gameplay pretty good. Lots of characters, decent modes, and online head to head. Career mode is boring thoughGraphics are insane and combat gameplay pretty good. Lots of characters, decent modes, and online head to head. Career mode is boring though no motivation to play. here's an example of why i rated this game low.. This is specifically for ultimate team mode. In Madden there are a ton of challenges and regardless of spending money you can atleast make a good team. With Ufc its totally pay to win and the ranking matchup system is a joke. The more you pay the more moves and skills you get. Grinding for wins without money for packs is a joke. And if my fighter is 69 dont match me against a 80... Expand

    Where to beginning. The game is extremely addicting, I have over 500 online fights, but it is sad it took me 500 fights to realize howWhere to beginning. The game is extremely addicting, I have over 500 online fights, but it is sad it took me 500 fights to realize how terrible the online is. If you get lucky and get an opponent who will fight you normal than the game is great. A good fight between two opponents who play the game like it is real life, it can't get much better.

    Normal = Not spamming take downs, spamming leg kicks, spamming take downs, spamming, ground and pound and reversing all of your attempts at transitioning.

    But does that happen often? No

    The online is trash, full of people spamming and cheating their way to victories. The computer judges are trash, typical UFC title stuff that has impacted their sales since the first UFC on xbox. The game always fails to deliver in the online aspect.

    Take downs are extremely slow and do not flow with the speed of the game at all. Maybe UFC 3 will be different, but I wont get my hopes up.

One thing this game did do is manage to frustrate the hell out of you. The key to success in this game is too take advantage of broken position for example side back mount you can attempt to block but it's useless all it takes is two hits to your arm and out of no where your fighters head jerks dramatically and your knocked out.

    Horrible customer service and game is broken if spending real money on the UFC points. WARNING, do NOT spend real money on ingame currency. IHorrible customer service and game is broken if spending real money on the UFC points. WARNING, do NOT spend real money on ingame currency. I stupidly bought over $130 of UFC points and then the game kept crashing when trying to access these points. Now when I turn on the game it keeps going back to the UFC points screen and crashing. I contacted EA support and it was clear they could care less. They told me "contact xbox for a refund". Obviously xbox will not just refund money since they don't know what the issue is. The game was very fun until I made the stupid mistake of buying ingame UFC points. DO NOT spend money on this game because EA will not help you and it completely broke my game. Expand
