I really can't wait for this to come out. I just hope it is great kinda like the dreamcast one or just not bad lol.

We will see, but a great MMA game would rock. I could see lots of fun action vs buddies with a good mma game :)

Still no date it's expected to come out?

WAR "good" MMA GAMES!

me and my roommate were just talking about this, joking about how they could make it for the Wii and you'd just wear like a Wii suit so you could fight on the ground.


I'd probably just end up looking like Sean Salmon trying to bicycle kick Rashad Evans all the time though.

Hopefully they put some effort in this time. The other UFC games were dire and were purely button bashing affairs that required little to no skill at all. I never played the PRIDE game but it looked like more of the same.

Here's hoping for something half decent this time.

i disagree about the pride game. its the only mma game that i owned and havent traded back in. while its not perfect its definatly a step in the right direction. it lacks any real carrer or story mode which is very dissapointing but has an excellent create a fighter. my favorite aspect of the pride game is the instant KO which i think should be in every mma game. if you time a punch right you can end it on only one punch. it still has many of the same problems the ufc game had, like if youre weak enough the lightest jab or leg kick can knock you out. the fighter selection in the game isnt the best seeing as how old it is but it still has some good names, silva, nog, saku, ninja, arona, igor. not to mention it cost me 10 bucks to buy the game. hopefully THQ can improve on this with their new ufc game, either way ill buy it and the next one to come out since they said they will make them every year just like other companies make other sports games. very excited for this.

my biggest issue for the game would be the controls, because there is just so much you can do in MMA. It would be cool to see some fight night esque control schemes for the striking aspects but as far as the grappling and submissions apsects go..it seems like a tall order to implement.

then again THQ has made some really fun pro wrestling games so I have some faith in them.

Maybe THQ will get this right but I'm positive they won't. First, they haven't made a good wrestling game in about 3 or 4 years. WWE: Here Comes The Pain was awesome but since then the games have had horrible bugs and outdated rosters. My opinion might change when I get more information on this product but until then it's probably going to be a rental. The Pride game wasn't much more then a button masher game as well. UFC on Dreamcast is where it was at.

Good to hear although all the MMA games suck hopefully this one will be good.I wish it was PRIDE not UFC but oh well.

Wasn't really impressed with the Pride game either, but it's not as horrible as certain alternatives. Maybe THQ can do this good, but to be honest I'd rather see it developed by EA Sports or even Rockstar.

This is pretty old news but, i guess everybody doesnt find out right away. I am really hoping that this is going to be succesful. I never played the other MMA games so I cant even imagine how they can incorporate good controls for one. The ground game is so suffisticated(sp?). If Gamespot gives this game anything higher then 6.5, I am getting it. I only have a PC so ive never had the pleasure of havng an MMA game come out available to me.

If anyone remember the nWo v. WCW games or the new line of WWE games made by THQ, they are very quality wrestling games. Controls are really smooth, really easy to pick up, not hard to do signature moves at all.

Now, that being said, MMA is quite a bit more complicated than WWE. It will be interesting to see how the company handles the control scheme and how intuitive it will be. THQ makes good games and I am looking forward to this one for sure.


WAR XBOX360!

if it actually connected (a) I doubt it would have hurt Rashad at all, and (b) Salmon probably would have just fell down. Most retarded move in MMA history.

XBOX360 > PS3

Sry... I did read your post and somehow missed that. I dont think its gonna be finished for awhile. When they announced it they haddnt even started making the game yet.

There are so many ppl that have been waiting for a "Good" MMA game. Whoever puts this out first is gonna bank! I have heard of a few different companies working on making MMA games. I cant wait!

I cant see a UFC game having a huge roster. It just seems like there are too many different styles and skills fighters have. But to have a decent Career mode they would have to have a nice few.
I think there have been a few good WWE games. Smackdown vs Raw (1st one) was pretty good. The game before it was better IMO. I think the 2006 and 2007 version of it are far too complicated and arent has fun to play.

The hard part to makin fighting games is to try and keep them basic while at the same time putting ina million different variations on the basic things and still not complicating things.

that kick would not have knocked anyone out. Look at it. It stops at the point of impact. Which means it was slowing down all the while.
On the other hand a LHK gains speed as it goes forward and has the momentum to carry a fighter ina spin completley around. That bicycle Kick was crap and would have only been a foot taping rashad in the face

I am also really happy about the new game coming out. I owned the old UFC game, UFC Sudden Impact, and that game was a button masher but fun. I hope on the new game that it doesn't take 15 seconds to win a fight. But i hope so many fighters are on the game. I also would love to see a mode where u can create a fighter and fight with him until he is 40. I am hopeing to buy this game on the 360. Can't Wait!
