EA SPORTS MMA
Good, But Could be way Better
This game was actually good for a MMA game, but it did take time for me to adjust to the controls of this game. However, this game did show a lot of potential for future MMA games. The controls seemed good for people who don't want to hit a button in order to hit your opponent, which is good fro some people, but not for all people. The transitions also need to be WAY better in the next game because it felt way too easy to get a takedown and transition to mount in like 3 moves. Another thing that needs to be changed to me was the health and stamina bars because it seems that when you are super close to knocking out the opponent, they can regain full health in a couple of seconds, and there was only two health bars; legs and head. Body shots only seem to lower your stamina and that's really what body shots do in this game. The stamina bar also refills like in three to five seconds. However, the quick refills do make this game harder because it can take forever to knockout or submit your opponent. The submissions in this game were great, though, because they had a lot of variety for submissions and the submission game was great, but it didn't make sense to me that every attempt you do for an arm submission took a fourth of your stamina and sometimes, barely did anything in the submission. The leg submission requires multiple times due to that they required less stamina for each attempt, but still seemed it required button smashing for me. This CAF (Create-A-Fighter) in this game seemed good because you could customize your character's weight and height to any extension they allowed you to. However, they lacked customization in shorts, shirts, and hair by allowing you to only choose from a limited amount of items that they had. It was still great though, with going to different places to train though, and who wouldn't want Bas Rutten as your main coach? The training was fun but most of the level 3 trainings were almost impossible to pass, unless you were playing the game on Hard (I played the career on medium), which may be fun for some people, but not me. Overall, this game was fun and shows potential, but also lacked in any places that needs to be fixed in the next game.
UFC all day
this game is not that good. Then only thing you do is online or career mode. It get's boring!. The career mode is not bad, i like how you can travel to different gyms and in different environments. I like how the moves are different than UFC, so it's not the same stuff i do. I like how you can download your face onto the game!!!. I watch UFC a lot and around wrestling a lot. I barley know most the fighters. I only know 7 the most. NO ONE watches strikeforce as much as UFC. The commentary is not that exciting. JOE and MaRK are the best mma broadcasters. BUY UFC!
Good mma experience
I have played both EA MMA and UFC 2010. I enjoy both games but I like the feel of ea mma alot more, to me it feels alot easier to chain and pull off submissions. The soundtrack and graphics are great. I also like ea's roster alot more as well. The career mode is alot of fun. I think the create-a-fighter also has more choices to create your perfect fighter. I think EA MMA is great. Especially if you need a good fighting game for cheap.
Overall its more fun than ufc no doubt.
When it first came out i didnt care much for it but i recently bought it and its so fun i wanna stop playing it lol. You can change the controls to the ufc controls if your not used to ea's controls. So many fighters as well such as my favorite Randy "The Natural" Couture. Graphics are outstanding. and sound is great. career mode is fun but gets boring after you go 20-0.
It feels more real than the first 2 UFC titles.
From the moment I picked this game up I was expecting disappointment. As a martial artist of 30 years the UFC games are just much more arcade than simulation. And much more frustrating for a casual gamer. The controls are intuitive. You can tailor you skills through relatively easy drills. And best of all the toons behave more like their real life counterparts when fighting. Plus unlike UFC 2009 and 2010. It's possible for a casual gamer to submit someone. While the submission offerings are fewer, they work and they do it intuitively.
BEST MMA GAME SO FAR
THIS IS THE BEST MMA GAME SO FAR EA DID A GREAT JOB ON NOT ONLY THE VISUALS BUT ON THE CONTROLS AND THE FLOW OF THE GAME .THIS GAME IS AS GOOD AS LETS SAY FIGHT NIGHT ... TRAINING YOUR FIGHTER IS ACTUALLY FUN AND LEARNING NEW MOVES FROM DIFFERENT GYMS FROM AROUND THE WORLD WAS A NICE TOUCH . THE ONLY THING THAT UFC HAS ON THIS GAME IS THE ROSTER OF FIGHTER ...THATS IT ...UFC WAS A BIG MESS CONTROLS SUCKED BIG TIME ( SUBMITTING THE IA WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE ) AND THE CARRER MODE IS A JOKE . IF YOU HAVE'NT PLAYED EA MMA YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON A GREAT GAME .
A Year Late It's Still in My PS3
After a full year of this game being out, it is a mainstay within my PS3. This game is not the UFC, the UFC is not the only MMA organization around. With that being said this game is all about StrikeForce who have been bought out by Zuffa LLC the owners of the UFC earlier this year, the game also features fighters from Dream, Bellator, Deep and a few other organizations. The gameplay is pretty easy to pick up for novices but can be advanced enough for hardcore gamers. There are 2 different control schemes for the user to use, the Fight Night-esque analog style fighting or the UFC face button style. The sound in the game is a mixed bag, the soundtrack is pretty good but after you hear it enough it gets old, the announce team of Mauro Ranallo and Frank Shamrock are pretty good whenever the audio stays in tact(if you like strikeforce you may like the commentary). The graphics are similar to those of Fight Night Round 4, it's not the best looking game but it's not ugly by any means of the imagination especially on a 3DTV. The game has a good career mode in which I would recommend any newcomer to use to learn the game or the MMA 101 tutorial mode. The online mode is good, it works, sure you may have matches against guys who can be considered cheap or whatever but that's pretty much with any game online, all in all I think this game is great, but it's best to have both this and UFC two different styles of MMA.
Online play not great...
It offers a great career mode. Once you go online it's GARBAGE!!!! There is no skill needed to play online. LOL when your in a match it sometimes lags and your opponent is gonna parry all through out the match. I mean non-stop parrying. But if you don't mind that? Then the game is fine.
only for die-hard fighter fans
i picked up this game,me being a fan of the ufc series,but this doesnt really match up,gameplay may be a bit better,and the online gameplay but overall if you had to choose out of ufc undisputed 2010,or ea sports mma,in my opinion i would choose ufc
great mma game
this is probly the most realitic mma game out there! highly recommened
