Petter Hegevall writes: "The worst part of EA Sports MMA is the ground fighting. The second worst part is the exaggerated loading times and awful and repetitive commentary from Mauro Ranallo. The visuals are easily the best part of the game. The camera is more zoomed out than in THQ's latest effort and you can spot every facial expression from the fighters during bouts. All fighters look exactly as they do in real life, and the animations are amazing. This is not enough to save the game from what is really a rather mediocre first attempt. Better luck next year, EA."
