The EA Sports UFC demo is out early on Xbox One. PS4 following on Tuesday afternoon.
At 79% now on the x1 but will download it for the ps4 too so i can play with my son.
its already out on ps4 since 6pm
I got mine around 3:45 eastern time
i was playing it yesterday afternoon in UK on ps4 about 3pm
I believe you can download on PSN now if you aearch in the store.
Judging from the demo, which we know DO represent the final product... Ultra clunky. I know I didn't expect much from the game, but it is even below that... How can EA make their sports game worse every entry? How exactly the F do they achieve it?
you opinion counts for everyone? the game is by far the best fighting game ive ever played and thats a demo.
Where did I say it counts for everyone? You seem to have severe comprehension issues... It is my judgement and I do think the game is underdeveloped, clunky, the flow of the animations is terrible etc. Problem?
Maybe we didn't play the same demo. The demo is amazing and very polished.
..... It has the best animations of any fighting game Ive ever played. Smooth as hell. My only issue is that when im on top on the ground, how do I maintain my position without being reversed or forced into a less dominant position? If Im in full mount, how do I remain in full mount? Im guessing its R2 and move the right stick in the direction your opponent is trying to transition but its not working for me. Maybe my timings off.
Clunky? i'm not keen on the ground game but the stand up is fantastic. MMA isn't like Street fighter dude, you don't just charge in and swing combo like there's no tomorrow. The pace of the stand up is pretty close to as you can get to the real thing
I concur. Disappointing.
saw someone on my friends list playing it on ps4 earlier i think...i think its already out
Played the demo for about 3-4 minutes...Didn't like it at all. In fairness I'm not a fan of the franchise but the reactions to being hit are poor as hell. Doesn't feel like it connects, just feels shoddy. I was also expecting more tactical/ground play? I've had 6 matches, won 5, all of which finished within 90-100 seconds. Seems a little shallow for my tastes. Again though, I'm not a fan and have 0 experience of the franchise so it may feel familiar to others.
the demo is set to easy and cannot be changed. you won quickly due to this difficulty. theres alot to appreciate in this game like the move sets that match how each fighter fights. but if your not a fan of the sport or the previous games then yes theres nothing for you here
Not being pedantic, the difficulty is not set on easy, it's set on normal. Not meaning to sound a bitch lol, just wanted to clear it up in case anyone else thought the same. Despite not being a huge UFC fan, the idea of the game is appealing but personally I expect more from a 2014 title. Looks fantastic but the physics are way off at times, kills immersion completely.
They do make the default setting easier for casuals in the demo. But online is where the game shines and you probably would be lucky to go 5-15. And the game is far from shallow, it is one of the more strategic fighting games. Obviously you have not played a previous UFC game or online for that matter or you would not be making those comments. Probably best for you to move on, button masher is not welcome here and should play something else.
Funny you should say that, all I did was mash buttons and I beat the AI opponent on normal inside of 60 seconds. 0 experience in the franchise skipped tutorial after step 2 Wins 5 matches in a row randomly mashing buttons Not attempting to boast personal ability, quite the opposite. It was just far too easy. In a game that's meant to boast strategy and tactical depth in its combat system, on the average and traditionally most popular difficulty setting, it should display these assets.
The UFC games have always been easy, I make specific characters just to prove how bad it is sometimes, I made one guy that had all his xp put into head kick and just head kicked my way into a win on hard on the last one that came out. I also tried it with punches and pretty much the same result expect I got hit a couple of times.
I don't know what demo your playing. Just look at the match settings after u select a char...its on easy. So of course your just gonna be able to just spam superman punch or w/e and win. Playing with my cousin and its alot harder...rounds typically go into round 3. I imagine it will on the full game on difficulties above easy as well.
" http://www.easports.com/ufc... Following the intros the fight will be set to a default difficulty of NORMAL with the bout playing out over three rounds." Not really sure why they even felt the need to mention the difficulty tbh but that's what it states.
If you go into the options, you will find it set to easy But striking aside, this game is a huge mess IMO.. Just like ea mma was Should have copied undisputeds controls 1:1 and simply changed the mechanics that didn't work ie the "shine"
Well Idk... I'd believe what ingame says more but even if it is on normal most sports games typically have like 5 or 6 difficulties and those that want a greater challenge just raise it up. Most sport games are very easy for me on normal so I(and alot of people) are used to raising it up as high as possible anyway
the demo came out like 6 hours ago on ps4
Yep, downloading right now on PS4.
So played the tutorial and then two matches. Here are my take aways: Good: character models, presentation, arena and support characters/staff and sound. Everything has a pretty authentic look and feel. So so: fight mechanics. Some of it like stand up punches and kicks work well and are easy to use. But ground & pound gameplay is not well explained and uses what feels like a totally different control system. Ultimately its rather complicated and nuanced by timing. Poor: collision physix. While super impressive at times it will continuously produce awkward looking impacts that take away from the realistic feel you get from the fantastic visuals.
Yeah the collision physics is a little wonky because they hardly react to hits but im hoping its just the demo
well said. Now these are fair complaints. Yes the collision physixs are bad especially when both fighters attack with big moves at the same time and the take down defense requires ungodly reflexes to defend in time. everything you said i agree with. I hope the full package somehow makes up for some of these issues. But i still think it will be good if your a fan and can appreciate each fighters move sets.
Not everything is explained in the tutorial. Thats what the EA Manual is for. The tutorial didnt explain anything about posturing up or landing knees to the head. You need to see the manual for the more intricate stuff. But your right. Theres a timing to the transitions that should have been explained in the tutorial. For example, if I want to perform a reversal, when exacly is the right time to move the right stick? And which direction?
I live in Ohio. I've had it since 3:30pm on ps4
Nice to see a demo for a coming soon game. I thought they had gone extinct.
true, im glad this didnt go to that dark hole known as "delayed until 2015"
This game is awesome downloaded it on my PS4 a while ago. I will get it, and I can't wait to create my character and do his career. That should be awesome. And the people that are hating on it are only hating because it isn't "easy" and you can't really just pick up and play like Madden or some other sport games.
I find the game stupidly easy, all you have to do is max out one area of a character with one move and just keep using it till you win, I mean its not that simple you do have to reverse and dodge or block every now and again but otherwise you dont even need to know any of the moves really just head kick them to death and you win. @thaimasker No I dont have the full game of this new UFC but the previous ones seem to be the same really and that was my past experience with them. Maybe this game plays differently at retail release but at the mo it doesnt seem so.
Wait so u have the full game? how? what difficulty are u playing on if so?
Played 10 -12 matches and i'm walking away truly dissatisfied with the whole game in general. I'm sorry , all sport games need to run in 60 Frames not 30. The games biggest flaw is how unrealistic it is . A round house kick to the face is going to knock your ass out. The reactions to punches ands kicks feel generic. The only person I can see enjoying this game are hardcore fans. I'm glad their was a demo cuz I probably would have wasted my money and time.
