UFC released its first fighting game since 2012 on Tuesday June 17th, EA Sports UFC. Previously the UFC games were published by the now defunct THQ. This year the UFC took a step up and now EA Sports is now under contract for all of the UFC games.Having played the THQ games and now the new EA Sports version, lets just say theres a reason THQ is out of business. The new version is 10 times better than any of the other iterations and is easily the best UFC game thats been made to date. Now, thats not saying a lot because the previous ones were kinda awful but this is a huge step in the right direction.
In the new game, the Graphics are crazy good, the striking is fluid and responsive, and grappling and submissions are much improved as well.
I’ve got a full rundown over the next few pages. Some of the clips you will see my “create a player” names Bubba. Take a look at the video below to see some of my gameplay footage I took using just the console DVR on my Xbox One. Then click through the pages as I break down each aspect of the game.
