Way Better Than Last Year
on 29 May 2010
First of all the game is a complete re-vamp of 2009. Although the basic controls remain the same i.e punch and kick, the ground game and feel of the game is totally new.
The graphics are slightly better but some fighters look exactly the same as last year.
The presentation of the game feels a lot more like a UFC event, whereby its starts with the opening credits like in real life and the main card fighters talking about their upcoming match followed up by a quick introduction with Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogun JUST LIKE THE REAL THING. (This is only on career mode BTW) The only thing I feel that is missing is the ring entrance for the fighters.
There are tons on fighters to choose from and all seem to have their own individualality, very well done.
The one minor point I will say is that the career mode seems a LOT harder than last year, particulary because you dont know what you're doing and how best to train your fighter (I'm sure someone will write a guide soon about this anyway).
The customization of your CAF seems a lot deeper, from tattoos to scars to t-shirts and Camp banners, making your CAF feel that little bit more uniq.
Despite the difficulty in career mode this is still a fantastic game, and one I will enjoy for many months to come.
If you're a fan of UFC or MMA in general then you will love this game.
