    Fun Party Game but Controls Need Improvement

    I'm not really a UFC fan, but I do enjoys sports and fighting games, and since WWE 2K16 is still somehow still missing key wrestlers, I picked this up through my Gamer's Club discount and gift cards. This game is a lot of fun. The graphics are great, they really capture the big fight atmosphere. The roster is enormous - you can pick pretty much any fighter that's fought in UFC and isn't under contract to another company (no Brock Lesnar then, unfortunately). It's a pretty easy game to pick up and play - the striking is a ton of fun, and I enjoy the animations for big hits and takedowns. My two complaints: -For a MMA game, tapping out someone is almost impossible. Submissions are six-step process that can be pretty easily blocked at multiple points. This really needs to be simplified for future games because it breaks immersion (so many submissions happen in a flash). -I know EA Sports for "realism," but future games should allow openweight fights. I would have loved for my heavyweight created fighter to be able to go against Conor McGregor, for example.

    This game feels pretty real as far as fighting games go. If you jam buttons and punch non-stop you will wear yourself down to nothing. Hits count and effect the end result, however there is always a real chance that you can loose it all if you let your guard down. This create good tension. The issues are more in that it is what it is...a fighting game. There is still room for growth if EA really wanted to put you more into the events. Soon after you play a few times you see presentation and personality are kind of seen that done that. Customization also is fairly limited IMO, unless you want to make some freakish looking character..... But I wanted a good fighting game that felt more like a sim and this game gave me that. I would recommend this game, but the understanding it is quick and just fighting...no stories here....just basic but solid for what it is.

    I bought this and Mk XL at same time for some nice cheap fighting pickups. This gm is actually better than ufc3. It actually has alot of physics where ufc3 took them out for knockdowns and ko's and put in canned animations which look terrible compared to real physics. Ufc2 has unlimited knockdowns and ko's as a result which look sweet. Ufc3 has the same exact boring knockdowns and ko's. Bad decision and i bet physics come back next installment. As of 11/18 servers are still up and still ppl playing in all weight classes. I strangely have alot of fun with the female matchups. And theres alot of fighters on here.

    Let's face it...most of the fighting games out there are unrealistic. You punch and kick at will without getting tired, or you shoot fireballs magically through the air, or you suplex someone off of the top rope. Not with the UFC. This amazing take on mixed martial arts is spot on. Below the amazing graphics and animations is a fairly complex fighting system. you can keep the bout on your feet with punches and kicks, or you can take it to the ground with clenches and wrestling for position. The only problem with the game is it does have a steep learning curve that you have to devote some time to in order to get the hang of it and improve.

    Regardless of the recent losers being on the cover, this game is a winner! The first UFC game was a fun/complex fighting game and this game only makes the same formula better. The menus are smoother than the original and the Create-A-Fighter mode is also much improved. The combat has been tweaked and updated in ways that make it more accessible and fun to master. Definitely recommend for anyone that likes fighting games or seeing themselves get KO'd in a video game!

    This game is by far better than the last one. The graphics are amazing and the game plat is much more fluid and realistic. The reason I give 4 stars is because it can be very difficult to play. The controls are very complex, in my opinion. I get taken to the mat and it's over because I'm horrible at the ground controls. If you can get the controls down, 5 stars all the way. Knockout mode was a great addition to the title.

    A slight increase from UFC 1

    I've played all the UFC games on XB, even the ones made by THQ, this one is only slightly better than UFC 1 from EA. I actually liked the controls on UFC 1 better, it made it easier & more fun to play (for me). I think the only real improvement made on this game is that there are more positions, the game seems more fluid and realistic, and that there are more fighters. It is still worth the $20 though.

    This game is the 2nd entry into the UFC series. For the first time in create a player you can do so being female. The character models and graphics are phenomenal. Albeit the control feel more mechanical and less...fluid and organic and you don't feel one with your player. This is noticeable but regardless the game is a blast in multiplayer. If it drops on sale at/or below $29.99 id say dead on purchase.

    It is a great game with nice mechanics. The ground game is still hard, but easier than the last game. The stand up game is a little inconsistent. Some times you punch and kick a person in the head 20 times straight and don't even wobble the person, but then they hit you once or twice and you get wobbled or knocked out. Ultimate team is a nice addition, but can get frustrating when people spam moves online.

    A lot of the professional reviews will tell you this game is average at best. What they dont tell you is how much fun the striking is now that your attacks have real impact on them. Flash knockdowns are great to see when you connect with the right punch or kick. Loving this game so far. Career mode still sucks BTW.

    while i loved all the upgrades in this game the only thing iam critical of is not being able to change your attire i do understand they have a deal with reebok and when your the champion you do not walk out with your title. i mean you earned it so why not ? i also used to love the post fight interviews but hey its still a great game

    Fun Fighting game for UFC fans

    I'm not sure that people who are strictly fans of fighting games will enjoy this as much as UFC fans. I enjoyed the fighting style and realness of the graphics. I'm a casual gamer so I wasn't looking for much but it's nice to have a game you can pop in and have a fight with your favorite UFC fighters from time to time

    I've waited a few months for the price of this one to hit $19.99, finally picked it up when it did. Just getting into it, but great graphics and gameplay. I great pick up at this price point for any UFC or MMA fan, whether hardcore or casual. Great fun playing against a buddy!

    This is a good MMA game. If you buy this dont think you're buying a street fighter/mortal kombat/teken style fighting game. You have to learn the controls to be able to fight standing and on the ground. It takes time to learn the controls but once you do it's pretty fun.

    I love the UFC. I feel this game accurately represents the sport. The graphics are great and controls are challenging but rewarding when you learn them. I'm still learning things. It's pretty deep. I also like how EA is freely continuing support on the game. Free figher downloads is a HUGE win!

    This game is addictive!! I started to install this game at 11:00pm and was going to play the game the following evening but I got carried away and played it into the early morning hours. It’s a fantastic game if your into mma or ufc

    The fighting is fun but feels a bit sluggish and slow at times. The grappling system is tough to learn. The modes are short and shallow. Ultimate team is present and you have to spend a fortune to be competitive like in all of the Ultimate Team modes; it's the EA sports money grab.

    Great Game. If you are a fan of the 1st title then this game is for you. Better striking, ground game passes and knockout movements. Submissions are still the same and could use some work but overall this is still a good game and it carries over 250+ fighters to keep you entertained.

    If ur a UFC fan then this may be a must buy. If not then rent first and try it before u buy it. The submissions definitely take some getting used to and maybe even some retooling on EAs part to allow it to be a bit easier. But i had it for a few days and i like it.

    EA Sports has taken the UFC video game to the next level. While their first try had glimpse of a good game, UFC 2 really takes the next step. Fighter controls are much smoother and that is the main part of the playing experience I enjoy. Career mode could be a bit better.
