EA Sports UFC review | Not as entertaining as the THQ games | ArabicGamers

When EA first revealed it had acquired the license to make UFC games, I admit, I was giddy with excitement. THQ and Yuke's had done a great job up until then at depicting the sport of mixed-martial arts in a game, but now it was time for EA Sports, with its limitless budget and superb presentation skills, to take things to the next level.

Two years later, I'm left wondering at what might have been.

THQ had the UFC gameplay down, a couple things needed fixing. Ea has the presentation but the gameplay is lacking:
- Every fighter uses same moves
- Stamina system is horrible
- Rocked system needs to be fixed a bit (I rocked the guy and he stumbles to the ground, I get on top and he just kicks me off)
- missing some known fighters (TJ Dillishaw, Jussier Formiga, Shane Carwin, Gabriel Gonzaga, Ben Rothwell, Brandon Vera, Stephen Bonner, Anthony Johnson, Uriah Hall, Chris Leban, etc...
- Career mode is too easy to lvl up to 100 overall
- Career mode has no freedom (can't train what you want, and can't choose between a few guys to fight)
- Game Face doesn't work (atleast for me it doesn't)

Agree with pretty much everything you said. Undisputed 3 is still the pinnacle of MMA games in my opinion. EA Sports UFC has the potential to match it, maybe in a sequel, but a lot of work needs to be done on gameplay.

It's also pretty embarrassing when the roster doesn't include one of the UFC champions...
