GoodGameBro writes, "While EA SPORTS UFC has a lot of appealing features to it, it’s clear after a few weeks of play time that it is far from a perfect game. The title took some lumps critically, including a lukewarm response from us in our official review. While I feel like a lot of what Marc wrote in our review was justified, I did enjoy my time with the game, and do feel like it’s a solid foundation to build upon in the future.
While a foundation is ok to start with, it is evident that a lot of work needs to be done for the series to be looked upon with the greats in the sports genre. I decided to give my take on what I think needs to improve in EA SPORTS UFC, either in a sequel, or a downloadable patch. While we don’t know how detailed EA SPORTS plans to make their patches for the title, it would be nice to see some of these additions early on as some of the omissions are pretty game-breaking to some of us hardcore fans."
