Aside from lots of controls you eventually get used to and the only two available fighters in the demo, plays good (issues that were mentioned can easily be fixed because it is a demo) and it was so satisfying when i roundhouse kicked the opponent in the face at the end of round one which was an instant KO.

How do the submission feel?

All i can say is if your getting the sh*t beaten out of you the tutorials are a good help and watch your opponents body movement.

They are still very tough to pull off. It's more fun against a friend guessing where your going to pull the right stick but it's still a chore (as I guess it should be since fights would end too quickly if submitting was easy). Also there's some collision issues when both fighters strike at the same time.

definitely the hardest submission system to pull off even with the simplified controls.

@maximus1985 The only really big collision issue besides the one you mentioned which was a little bit annoying was when your opponent or yourself attempted a take-down near a fence and you would kind of just slide down it instead of clashing with it.

I have to admit, they done really good with this game and with them waiting so long to show real gameplay, I was certain they had screwed it up. Only problem I've noticed so far is that every match I've had ends in the first round.

It certainly promotes a more fast paced battle, even with Stamina you can get a knockout in the first round if you avoid the other fighter's advances.

Doing jones signature kicks and elbows is just great fun. The parrying high low is good for keeping your opponent guessing. The submissions are tough to get used to but when you understand it it becomes a mind game against a real person.

Ya it's out..

Control scheme seems wonky for no good reason.. Undisputed had it right

Now both bumpers are random modifiers?

Seems like they had a good system that worked and changed it just enough to be annoying Lol.. Feels very unintuitive to me

n4rc1386d ago

Blah.. Tried playing some more

Super let down.. Their control scheme just blows.. Won't be picking this up and that bums me out.. Was excited for it
