This game is deffinently an upgrade from 2010. The additions of Mid section and Leg Knockouts make it feel very satisfying to a strategic player like myself. In previous games i'd chop away at a CPU or friends legs or ribs in a match and never seemed to do anything besides leave myself open for face shots. So adding KO's to the legs & mid sections is a nice addition. Ring entrances, Customizing banners & new weight classes are awesome additions too. I like the fact they implemented use of the cage. Pride FC is alright. My BIGGEST issue is the transition game on higher difficulties still feels very unrealistic. The CPU on expert or Ultimate literally knows exactly what I'm going to do before i do it. Whether it's Transitions on Ground or Clinch or just stand up striking. They sway almost everything like watching Roy Jones Sways x10. Another issue is the very repetitive career mode. While it is cool that fighters "Finally" get older as years progress, there ratings don't seem to decline at all with age. Plus career mode has very little subtance as usual. You can train your fighters attributes, learn moves at camps, use a Game plan, switch divisions, fight in Pride,Make a Custom banner, Level up Sponsors,etc.. but with all that said, they need to implement a Career mode with a little bit better overall presentation, have post/pre- fight interviews(Think they had this in 2010), the ability to do interviews at any point to start a rivalry & other reasons. A Managament Mode would be a cool idea. The ability to control merchandise & ticket prices, as well as putting together each ppv & event & being able to play any match whenever you feel like, as well as scouting & signing new talent to the ufc. Would be cool but it's just an idea. Anyway overall it is a Good game but the reptitive commentary from previous games,lack of subtance in career & Overpowering CPU on higher difficulties is what keeps it from Great. New comers will love this game as it's highly addicting & new to them, but I've been playing these games since Undisputed 2009 came out & it really does feel a bit the same & very repetitive.
