OXCGN gets all hands-on with UFC 2009 Undisputed
It's still one of my most vivid memories of the current generation of consoles. In 2006 I hadn't yet dropped my dollars on a system, but my mate had taken the leap, bought an extra controller and invited me over to play a boxing game.
If any game in those early months defined next gen for me, it was EA Chicago's Fight Night Round 3. The hulking boxers in cinematic combat; reflective lighting; beads of sweet; real time bruising; and the unmistakable crunch and blood that accompanied each KO defined my first steps into the ring of next gen gaming. Since then, nothing in the fighting sim genre has threatened to take the (Burger) King's crown!
