UFC 2009 unveiled

The debut trailer and preview for UFC 2009 have just made their way out. The game, which has been in the works for quite some time, is set to release next spring.

The operative phrase that came up during discussion of the game was “Constant Control”, the idea being that a UFC fighter must constantly be aware of his surroundings and situation, and must be ready to act at a moment’s notice with a specific, contextual move, countermove, or defense.

I’ve always seen initial appeal in wrestling games but they’ve rarely kept my interest and usually been more frustrating than fun. UFC’s action could present a more enjoyable experience as long as everything flows together naturally. Continue on to watch the trailer which seems to show a lot of potential that could be realized.
