I am a casual MMA fan at best but after seeing the rashad evans vs. rampage fight I wanted to learn more about the sport and what better way to do that then picking up this game ?
This and fightnight are the only games where i completed my characters career and this has a Forced retirement point if it didn't I probably would have had my fighter fight until he was dust. Regardless I got super into it tracking my movement among my weight class, developing personal rivalries ( Me. Vs. Yushin Okami #5 please !) and learning how different fighters fight and making a game plan based on their fighting styles. I really really invested a lot into this game and i feel like it was worthwhile. Seeing my fighter progress from fights every 3 months to annual title fights was great . losing a fight only to win a rematch or winning a fight only to lose in a second bout made it so exciting. The time for matches differed greatly as well. knocking an opponent out in less than 20 seconds is.......amazing....winning a 5 round war just barley by decision too was incredible just suh an amazing game and I feel it caught the spirit and excitement of the sport perfectly.
