Thanks largely to the licensing of Mike Tyson and improved analog pugilism, EA's boxing sim reminded us all just how sweet science could be. Boxing wasn't the only fighting game to make an impression on us this year. THQ's UFC Undisputed 2009 was an incredibly strong first effort that generated a lot of interest in MMA, and finally gave longtime fans the game they had been anticipating for years. EA's crown jewel, Madden NFL, reached the pinnacle of the franchise this year, providing fans with the most complete football simulation to date. It's going to be tough for Tiburon to top what they did with Madden this year, but if they follow in the footsteps of EA Canada, and their NHL series, fans will be in for a treat. Continually one of the most impressive representations of an actual sport, NHL 10 proved once again that hockey could be great when in the right hands."
