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.
