EA Sports UFC Xbox One Review

EA Sports UFC is a title that captures the exciting battle of strength and skill that is the UFC. The game contains a number of distinct modes that will keep players on the edges of their seats.


The graphical quality of the game further imbues the experience with a realism that is unmatched. The damage that an individual enacts upon their opponent is shown in the character model, while players have a further set of cues provided regarding their fighter’s level of exertion. Veins pop, skin flushes, and muscles become more taut as the rounds continue to count down. For those gamers that are looking to suit up as their UFC heroes, EA has included a roster that encompasses all weight-classes from heavyweight (Frank Mir, Alistair Overeem, Mark Hunt) to welterweight (Nick Diaz, Robbie Lawler, Rory MacDonald) and flyweight (Tim Elliott, Ian McCall, John Dodson). Striking and submissions are balanced to degrees comparable to UFC matches and are animated in a crisp fashion. Superman punches lead to a staggered opponent, while submissions are a rapid way to end a match.

The arena settings are also numerous enough to keep individuals playing; the list of venues includes Madison Square Garden, HSBC Arena in Brazil, the Bell Centre in Canada, and Staples Center. The online component of EA Sports UFC should be seen as the key victory of the game, as players can test their mettle against friends and other individuals around the world. The game’s FighterNet allows individuals to have an up to date record of their fighter’s matches and highlights in a way similar to other MMA web repositories. The title is also available for the Playstation 4, and is available in any well-stocked video game store or gaming-related online shop.

Rating: 9.2/10
