  • Patch Released for EA Sports UFC; Three Fighters Added to Roster
    by
    Posted July 22nd, 2014 at 11:45 am 2 Comments »
    A significant update was released for EA Sports UFC today that on the surface attempts to make the gameplay somewhat more realistic while also adding three fighters to the roster for free. The patch notes mention most notably a number of adjustments to stamina and damage. That isn't going to solve concerns over value due to the lack of content offline (recent price drop can help in that regard) or that the CPU fights the same no matter who is being used and does so super-aggressively, but...
  • Sales of EA Sports UFC Continue Alarming Downward Trend for the Sport

    EA Sports UFC has struggled in terms of review scores and word of mouth and now that the sales numbers have released the impact of the poor start to the new franchise for the company can be further examined. First month sales for UFC combined for only 278K copies which explains the price drop that went wide last week. THQ's UFC series took a nosedive following the first release in 2009 - something partially attributed to the lack of roster turnover, competition from high profile games, an...

    It's only been out a month but EA Sports UFC can already be had for $40. Amazon has the game at that price already for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Gamestop also has it for $40 right now though it's unclear whether that is just online or also in-store. In some cases retailer deals are only available until a certain supply has run out, so those interested will want to take advantage of the offer quickly. [Update] Best Buy, Walmart, and others have followed as this isn't just a retailer-sp...

    Despite all the issues with EA Sports UFC it is a fairly well polished product from a technical standpoint. However the game does have plenty of awkward situations where animations conflict and also some rare cases where really bizarre stuff can happen. There are a number of videos out thereĀ featuring visual oddities, but this one stands out for the variety of them and how the added commentary contributes to it being so funny. ...

    Hope for the future of UFC games were high when EA Sports announced the acquisition of the license just over two years ago. There was to be significantĀ development timeĀ and investment made prior to release of the first entry in the series, it would launch on the new systems and have an opportunity similar to how Fight Night Round 3 stood out early in the previous generation, and the company was coming off a good first effort in the sport with 2010's EA Sports MMA. It's especially disapp...

    The launch of the EA Sports UFC franchise was highly anticipated but has been met with disappointing reviews and fairly poor consumer word of mouth. Check out the 74 minute segment from last night's live Press Row Hangout where I'm joined by Rich Grisham and T.J. Lauerman to break down our experiences with and assessments of the game!

    by Dylan Favorite I have been eagerly anticipating the release of EA Sports UFC since it was officially announced two years ago. Unfortunately, after spending a good chunk of time with it, I can say that it is considerably flawed. I have enjoyed all of the past UFC games from Undisputed 2009 to EA MMA. I would consider myself well versed in both the games and the sport. This version just falls flat in some key areas. (more…)...
  • Unique Fighter Abilities in EA Sports UFC

    One aspect of EA Sports UFC that was never really discussedĀ relates to the various special abilities held by the fighters which in theory would highlight their strengths and traits in fights while also adding a larger sense of personalization for created fighters. Unfortunately one of the biggest complaints with the game is that the individuals all tend to fight the same rather than in the different manners they actually do in real fights (strategically and relating to personal skills). ...
