Packed with a full roster of accomplished martial arts athletes, including UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Oritz, Ultimate Fighting Championship offers players tons of full-contact fighting and a variety of game modes for depth of gameplay. The game takes you through a grueling career mode as you work your way up the rankings. You will start out battling generic brawlers, each victory bringing you closer to the marquee matchups of real UFC bouts. But you will need to train diligently to reach the championship.
The game's music and overall presentation are similar to the UFC telecasts. Whether players are using a custom-made brawler or a real-life UFC athlete in the eight-player or 16-player tournament, arcade, training, or versus modes, the realistic moves make for a compelling and immersive experience. The shader technology of the Xbox allows clear definition of every bead of sweat--as well as the blood and bruising that occur throughout each fight--adding to the game's intense realism.

The graphics in the game are tremendous. The entrances are flawless with such detail that it looks like real life, and the crowd are the best I've ever seen. The in game graphics are also brilliant with the characters looking ultra realistic and the character movement is so real it's scary.
There are also quite a few different modes to play on. An arcade mode when one player simply has to defeat as many opponents as he can in a row. The UFC mode, which is an elimination tournament where you have up to three fights, but need to save energy or you'll find your in the final with a no change in hell. A tournament mode which allows one or two players to create their own UFC tournament, or an exibition mode which is simply single matches for one or two players. There is also a create-a-fighter mode, which although isn't very detailed, and doesn't allow as much creativity as perhaps are available on such games like WWF Smackdown, it's still a nice addition to the game.
UFC Tapout has all of the characteristics of a brilliant game, and yes it even has blood.Read more ›
The game modes are varied and have a create a fighter option, tournament mode and UFC mode but are not all great as they can soon become repetetive. Is this the only negative? I'd be lying if i said it was as there are other minor niggles throughout the game such as... you can win most matches by simply standing up and punching rather than taking it to the ground and grappling.
Overall i'd recommend this to fans of UFC or beat-em-up's as it is probably the most realistic fighter out there. so if you can pick it up cheap it's certainly worth giving it a go, and for UFC fans i'd have to say this is a must.
