Gamers don’t have to wait too much longer for the next installment of the UFC’s successful video game franchise Undisputed. Last year the UFC finally brought us an mma game worth our time. So what will they do to raise the bar and stay on top with Electronic Arts joining the competition.
There is no question that the UFC currently owns the largest amount of top mma fighters on the planet, so the roster for the upcoming game won't be a concern. You can bet that the majority of last years fighters will all be in this new game.
Who will be new to the game this year? I am looking forward to guys like Vitor Belfort, Jon Jones, and hopefully Renzo Gracie. I am sure they will add anyone of relevance that they can.
What problems did the last game have? One easy glitch that everyone noticed was the age thing. Everyone noticed that as their created fighter advanced in their career but their fighter's age stayed the same. No doubt that will be fixed.
There also wasn't much for nicknames. About 10 of them to choose from. Every time I'd fight online it would be "The Grim Reaper" versus "The Grim Reaper", that got old real fast. It would be nice to see at least 50 or so.
As for the career mode, how about starting off in some run down gym getting sub par training and then working your way up to fame. Wins some fights, join a team, unlock better gyms.
This would be asking for a lot, but how about a mode where you enter The Ultimate Fighter and get into the UFC that way if you want.
There are lots of things they can do here to improve and add detail to the career mode. I can't wait to see what they've done.
As for online play, I heard a lot of people complaining about people shutting off their console so they don't get the loss on their record. That can be easily fixed and hopefully will. It would be cool to have some sort of online career mode. How about a few different leagues where you can rise to the top in rankings. Just something more organized than just the regular old versus.
If any of you have ever played UFC Sudden Impact, there were a few things from that game that I'd personally like to see. One thing is an option for CPU vs. CPU in exhibition or whatever. I like to sit back and watch two guys go at it sometimes.
Another thing would be a tournament mode. Now I know that they don't do those anymore in the UFC, but this is a video game, tournaments are awesome. You don't have put them into the career part of the game, just a separate mode for fun. We don't really need that stupid classic fights crap do we?
These are just a few of my ideas for this wonderful franchise. Feel free to post your own, I know I didn't cover all of them. I am sure the makers will impress once again. Can't wait to play.
