Review of EA Sports UFC 2

Posted March 14th, 2016 at 12:00 pm


The first big sports game release of 2016 is here with EA Sports UFC 2. The sequel has improved on the deficiencies of the first, providing a much more satisfying gameplay experience and deep roster, but the modes of play come up a little short. Career Mode is a disappointment and the new spin on Ultimate Team isn’t very compelling. The new KO Mode is a winner however, even though it isn’t playable online.

Ultimately what it comes down to is the game this time around better respects the sport and fans will find appreciation in that. It’s not going to appeal to an audience outside of those people but it probably never will no matter how the games are designed or marketed. Sales have plummeted from one UFC release to the next, so it’s the right idea to go after the real fans of the sport instead. Check out the complete review over at Sporting News.
