UFC 2009 Undisputed .... is sick!

If you've not got it, get it. It's the most enjoyable and realistic fighting game i have ever played in my entire life (and that includes mortal kombat).

LINKAGE

  • The fighting is unique and FULL of variation
  • The characters are superb (full of the world's best!)
  • The atmosphere is like you're watching it on TV. Even at the end of a round when they're being fixed up in their corners they talk tactics and it adds to the realism
  • The knockouts are a dream. You really get a feel for what they go through and there are so many variations again. Sometimes they twitch, sometimes they're plain out cold - and sometimes a match can last a mere 10-15 seconds depending on where you hit them and how. Obviously this rarely happens but the sweet spot can come once in a while
  • The career mode is FANTASTIC!! Making your own character and taking him through the ranks of the class of your choice is enjoyable throughout. So realistic the way events, fights and sponsors come your way. If you don't make your character an all round player then you won't go far in the ring.


I could go on but it's boring as shit unless you actually give it a go. It's hard to find a good, long lasting game these days and i'm certainly going to be playing this one for a while. I didn't even like UFC until i downloa ..... bought this!





BUY IT!!

Sound scrooble. I made my own character called "Johnneh Mate" with the nickname "Big Nasty". He's the scum of britain with tribal tattoos all over his arms and a big berr belly. Can't half pack a punch, though!

Tez- It seems they both use the the same if not VERY similar engine so it's preference that will decide the game's popularity. I've seen a few videos and screenshots of round 4 and it does look pretty sick, but there's just something about UFC that i prefer. Maybe it's the fact you can punch, kick, grapple, knee, elbow rather than just punch. And of course fight night is merely punching but i'm sure the combos will be more exciting.

Missus just got me it for my Bday!

Only got up to Strikes and throws in the tutorial, so far. Wanted to get straight into the fighting, so haven't even scratched the transitions/submissions...

There's definitely a wealth of options/fighting styles, can't think of any other games that match it in that dept.

Jack Dalv (meant to be Daly) has just won the Light Heavyweight title against Wanderlei Silva!

Got a 22/8 record with my Muay Thai/Wrestler, awesome stand-up, but on the occasions I've been taken down I've had big problems. Got his defensive ground clinching up to a decent level and similar for Submission defense, so been fairing a wee bit better.

Brilliant game!

My mate brought his Xbox round last night and we played this for a few hours. I haven't seen the career mode yet but the multiplayer is awesome. Stick on some nice bassy speakers and you can really hear every impact. So satisfying.

I'll probably be picking this up once I get my Xbox fixed.

Haven't got the bassy speakers sorted, but looks great on the recently purchased 42" telly

Just had Dana White tell me the athletic commission won't be renewing my license, so i've only got a couple of fights left in me : /

Don't know what career my guy will pick up once he's finished cage fighting – gave him a skull tattoo on his forehead!

Boss isn't it!

It's quite possibly the only game that keeps me from playing Fifa 09 - and that takes something!

My character is a beer bellied middleweight named "Johnneh Mate". He's got scars on his forehead that have been covered up by a union jack tattoo. Had a fight with that Bisping from Manchester last night and i was nailing him with some perfect counters then he caught me on the sweet spot and i was down in one. Absolutely ROCK SOLID!

Jonneh's the pinnacle of Northern Britain. He eats pies and dole cards for breakfast!

Haha classy! They don't have a choice of any Scottish destinations for the fighters to come from, so I've got my guy being born in Hannover, Germany (where my FFF mate Glenn is living) and fighting out of Rio Di janeiro (cos all the best fighters are Brazilian, innit)

6'5 Light Heavyweight, again scared face with Scull forehead tattoo. Just fucked up Rampage Jackson in my first title defense, and got Rashad Evans lined up for my second defense (who GP'd me out cold in our last fight)

Moan then!

ahha mine is based around myself.

6'0 tall talk and hamsome stud muffin with nice muscles that shine.


on a more serious note, i'm shite on the floor. I can't reverse/counter the moves on the ground (mostly down to not knowing how to) and lose the ground all the time, specially the fecking submission moves.


Anybody know wheres best to get the live subscription from? e.g. cheapest!

34.99 is the cheapest i've seen.

I paid 40 so you've already outdone my capabilities scott haha. Stop being a cheap arse and get it paid!

I'm shit on the floor aswell. I'm against a lot of BJJ fighters at the mo and if they get me down and are good with submissions i get FUCKED. Just sparring and increasing my submission and take down defense as we speak. Notice that your characters never age?

Aye, i noticed that.
