Bryan Wiedey and T.J. Lauerman discuss everything there is to do with the popular mode in an all-new Press R...

    EA Sports UFC 2 is undeniably a stronger product than the company’s first two efforts at the sport of MMA that released in 2010 and 2014. From the Knockout Physics System and KO Mode to new controls for transitions and the introduction of Ultimate Team there’s a lot there to be evaluated. While much of what has been done is positive there’s also submissions proving to be a non-factor and a disappointing Career Mode to consider. How does the product stand on its own, and could this b...

    The one week beta for EA Sports UFC 2 provided ample opportunity to get a feel for what's in store with the product that will be releasing on March 15.
