    I'm a die hard UFC and MMA Fan, so I was planning to buy this game regardless of what I heard. Initially, the reviews I saw online (I'm looking at you, IGN) were not positive and almost prevented me from spending the money, but my inner fan got the best of me. As a fan of previous EA fight games, like the Fight Night series, I really like this game. The stand up and boxing aspect of the game is a lot of fun and the ground game is really rewarding once you get the hang of it. I really enjoy the Career Mode, which takes you from the Ultimate Fighter through to the UFC. Each fight you earn Evolution Points, which you can use to upgrade different moves, like your kicks, punches, ground game, submissions, etc. You can also use Evolution Points to purchase and upgrade different perks for your fighter, such as the ability to not lose stamina quickly when you rock your opponent (referred to as "Health Events") or get rocked yourself. You can assign 5 different perks at once and you can level each perk up to a maximum level of 5. There are probably 30 perks to choose, so whatever style you want your fighter to be, you can make it happen. The fighter customization in terms of looks and fight style/gameplay style really are amazing. It's my favorite aspect of the game. The best part is that you don't need PS Plus or online access to take advantage of those features. However, if you have an EA Game Face, you can load your gameface on to your fighter, which is also pretty cool (and weird when you get knocked out). In the end, this game is well worth the full price. I've seen it on sale at Best Buy recently for $40, which is a great deal too. I highly recommend this game to fight fans and people who want to try a more "realistic" fighting game that doesn't play like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. Nothing against those games, UFC 2 just has something different to offer.

    Ok when i played the first ufc on ps4 i was amazed by the graphics but once i played the game the gameplay the fighters moved slow and felt weird and i traded it in the next day so one day i was thinking i wanted to try the new ufc 2 and see if they changed anything plus knockout mode was one thing i really wanted to play cause they said unlimited stamina meaning uour fighter never gets tired so i bought it and after playing it its a fun game dont get me wrong but first the career mode is missing things i dont understand why they dont have a story mode like fight night it would of been a great idea all you do on this one is just go from one fight to another you do train but once you get a A on the practice you can sim it so you dont have to do it which is a great though but if the career mode had more depth to it its like your just fighting for nothing you go 38-0 and only thing you get is the paid dlc for free thats right for free so dont buy mike tyson bruce lee and them cause they can be unlocked by completing the career mode if you go 38-0 but thats easy just if you bouta lose hit start then restart lol EA for got to take that off like they did on fight night and KO mode i thought was gonna be fun gets boring even putting the cpu on the hardest level you still whoop them. And the unlimited stamina i thought was on this mode nope your as you are swinging he will start going so slow hopefully they can fix alot on the next ufc 3 or go back to fight night cause that was a great game i would not pay 59.99 or even 39.99 this gane is a buy at the price of 19.99

    For fans of all the combat arts and games. Great striking and a deep ground game that's accessible for a beginner but very difficult to master. Fight long and pepper your opponent with pot shots or bite down on your mouthpiece and run through them. The stand up accommodates any playing style just be mindful of gassing yourself out. the ground game is all about stamina and timing. Watch your opponents movements to deny their transitions and work for nasty submissions or old fashioned ground and pound and watch their head bounce off the canvas. Online modes offer ranked and unranked matches and Ultimate Team, a create your own team of fighters fighting for performance coins that are used to purchase attribute, move and fitness cards. Also in the mix is the new Knockout Mode which eliminates grappling and submissions for players who just want to throw hands. Amazing graphics and immediately accessible gameplay that's a lot deeper than it appears.

    Will Grappling Ever Win Out?

    I had high hopes for EA UFC 2. I'll say that it could be worse, but the game is lacking in some very important areas. The first is in its gameplay: striking is fun, boasting spectacular animations and bone-crunching hits, but the sheer number of flush shots an opponent can endure is maddening. The ground game is something that I avoid like the plague, because the grappling system is unclear on how to perform reversals and blocks or when to properly execute them. The lack of a tournament mode, something that seems both simple to incorporate and a mandatory addition to and MMA game, if for no other reason than to pay homage to the MMA of old, is unforgivable. This game is fun to pop in and play for 20 minutes or so in 1v1 matches with the computer or to mess around on with friends, but that's about it as far as my uses are concerned.

    First UFC game despite being a fan of the sport, so I cannot speak to the gameplay versus previous versions. UFC2 has a relatively steep learning curve, as the leg kick/takedown/ground and pound approach will get you to the Top 20 in career mode but mastering the submission game appears to be key to the next level. By far the most fun to be had here is to get a group together and just pound away at one another...with the excellent graphics and unbelievable range of fighters and moves, there is a lot of fun to be had (nothing better than a knockout with two seconds left in a fight - you are probably losing on the scorecard - with your teenage nephew that lives on modern day games! Looking forward to playing on-line, though I am not finding the gaming packs to be terribly intuitive.

    Horrible, just horrible

    I really wanted to enjoy this game, but there is far too many things wrong with it, preventing me from not returning it. Which I did today. Grappling Is a huge part of the sport and granted it is very intricate and very hard to replicate but both of EA sports attempts at creating it have failed tremendously. Undisputed 3 is still the best UFC game made to date in my mind. The best thing about this game is the graphics and presentation of fighters. That's great and all but I'm pretty sure nobody pays for the real pay per view events to watch fighters walk to the ring get rubbed down, and then introduced. I'm sure they'll try again in another few years, and I'll be there patiently waiting to see what has improved. But if they lay another egg I'll just shake my head and return it like I did with this one.

    Decent, but falls somewhat flat

    This game is a step in the right direction for UFC, with added features and more realistic and rather impressive physics, but I feel like the ground wrestling portion is lame and completely takes you out of the otherwise fully dynamic fighting. It simply puts you on the ground with the opponent and prompts appear telling you what you can do (or you can disable prompts, but the gameplay remains the same), and you have to hold a stick in a certain direction for a certain amount of time to "activate" a move, making things very slow and tedious, instead of fluid and dynamic. The graphics are great, the physics are great, the on-foot gameplay is much improved, but the ground fighting is very weak. I would still recommend it to UFC fans, but be wary of the negatives.

    I have played UFC 2009, UFC 2010, EA MMA, EA UFC, and now EA UFC 2. I stand by the fact that I think they went so far away from what made UFC 2009 so great. I feel like there isn't a real way to enjoy the story mode. For crying out loud, I'm just over here trying to have a decent run to start out in the UFC and I go from facing a homeless man they brought in from outside the arena, to facing Rumble Johnson. Things escalated very quickly. I don't like that even on a low difficulty the game is still ridiculously hard to play leisurely. Graphics are pretty solid, announcers are as annoying as they always are, and I haven't touched this since a couple days after I purchased it. Maybe I'm just not hardcore enough.
