..... and the new MMA champ of video games is ......,
This review is from: EA Sports MMA: Mixed Martial Arts (PS3) (Video Game)
EA have out done THQ and the UFC with this excellent and realistic video game simulation of the sport of mixed martial arts. What EA have produced is much better than 'UFC 2010', the fights feel more realistic, the controls are simpler and have a more oraganic feel, the graphics look better and everything feels less tacky than the UFC games. Obviously, one down-side is the weaker and less known roster of fighters. We do not get the stars of the UFC but this is the only catagory where the UFC games are better. Take away the roster and EA's MMA is a much better game and will appeal to the more seasoned fan of the sport.
The career mode is good with much better voice-acting than its UFC counter-part. The online mode is also impressive with lots options and lots of little gimmicks thats sets this game apart.
Im sure fans of the sport will be divided as to which is the better video game (EA MMA or UFC 2010) but I believe that contest has been won hands-down by EA. THQ have been knocked out in the first minute of the first round ..... and the new champion is EA's MMA. In the end, its was not even a close contest.
