Synopsis

Synopsis
You walk into the cage and the floor pulses with the energy of the arena. Sweat drips down your brow as you step out to the center. The bell rings and the match begins. While sizing up your opponent, you find the weakness you've been searching for. A hook comes from your left and you dodge at the last possible moment. You feel a breeze as his fist barely misses your nose, and you counter with a devastating right uppercut — striking him squarely in the jaw. His head jerks back in a violent motion, spraying sweat into the air before he falls backward to the mat. While you prepare to make your opponent submit, the referee calls it a knockout and the crowd erupts. This is the world of mixed martial arts — are you ready to fight?

Get ready for the raw intensity of mixed martial arts with EA SPORTS MMA. Step into the cage and punch, kick and grapple with the world's top fighters in the sport while employing a variety of fighting styles from around the globe. Select from various weight classes, rule sets and take on all challengers in multiple cage types or a ring. Continue the challenge online with the ability to create and share custom fighters, prize fights and more. Master takedowns, unique submission moves and more to dominate your opponents in the cage and rise through the ranks to become the top MMA fighter. There's one way to know you've really made it big — hear the biggest name in refereeing announce your name. You'll encounter everyone's favorite black-belt ref for yourself and bring larger-than-life personality into your game when you unlock Big John McCarthy. And that means only one thing — it's time to "Get it On."

EA SPORTS MMA - PlayStation 3 (3 out of 4)
Well Rounded MMA Game!!!

Posted by: from North Carolina on 11/25/2010I enjoy watching MMA fights from around the world. EA MMA lets you train and fight in gyms and arenas around the world. For example, you fight in Japan, and the ring announcer is the same woman who introduced fighters before they went into the ring in PRIDE. The fighting is great because you fight to your strengths, and try to compensate for your weaknesses in your fighting style. So if you play or create a fighter that is based on Muay Thai and face a Jui Jitsu fighter, you want to keep the fight standing up. The realism is very good in that respect. The other great thing about the game is that you can create your own fighter and upload it onto the EA Servers so other players can download your figher and use them in online fights. You can also download other created fighters as well. The game is great and I highly recommend it.

Posted by: from Staten Island N.Y. on 09/21/2010How can someone review a game that isn't out yet...If your an MMA fan like myself, you would know some of the PRIDE fighters...Even if the game turns out to suck, just the fact of using different fighters then UFC is very cool...Your not an MMA fan....or you have no clue about the sport...I want to see Fador fight..You think that's an A/C.....

Looks decent

Posted by: from AZ on 06/18/2010But if you have played UFC Undisputed you will be highly dissapointed in the quality of this game. EA, who claimed that MMA was not a real sport decided to create this game in spite of Dana White's UFC being so successful. It's worth trying, but maybe on Greatest Hits.
