lotan's UFC 2009 Undisputed (PlayStation 3) review

Don't belive the hype

Wow. I was hyped for this game, but now that I've spent some time with it I'm very disappointed. 

My first impression was that the AI is far too simple to put up any challenge. So, I attempt to go online and get nothing but horrible lag. LAG LAG LAG. I have a 12 Mbit fiber to the home connection, so it's not me. Once I finally found a match it didn't get much better. Every win I got, and all that were against me were PURE LUCK. Each time the fighters were at full stamina and took 1 punch to drop them. It's a random button mash mess online. All people do is heavy punch heavy high over and over. You can't counter or block because the Lag is so bad. When you get people on the ground it doesn't even matter because if you try to submit them it's a "who can mass the buttons fast enough mini game". 

Also when you lose you actually lose points toward your online rank. WHY? You get clocked on a cheap punch and bam you lose a rank. 

The push over AI makes the single player no fun and the Laggy online reduces the game down to a button mashing mess.

For those of you who –like myself up until recently– don’t know what Ultimate Fighting Championship is, it is a sport of MMA, Mixed Martial Arts. As such, there are various styles and techniques among the many fighters in the game. Some of them include boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, judo, wrestling and a few more. With that said though, it is fairly obvious that the fighting i...

    Great sports-based fighting sim, with only a few flaws 0

    As Dana White says in the introduction to the Single-Player Career mode, the UFC is the fastest growing sport in the world, so it surprises that there really hasn't been a high quality UFC game, prior to Undisputed 2009. Helped by Yukes, the company that has created all the Smackdown! games, UFC Undisputed 2009 puts together an impressive roster, solid gameplay mechanics and, something Smackdown never had, good commentary to create a unique fighting experience.First, the gameplay. With the natur...
