Though classified as a simulation, EA Sports UFC 2 is still a fighting game, and thus must contend with flashier and fantastical competition in the genre. However, on an immersive level, the authenticity both in the visuals and atmosphere is astonishing. The fighting itself is intense, but requires patience, skill, and memorization to master. It's a must have for any MMA enthusiast, and one that promises months of full-bodied content in its meaty modes.
EA Sports Canada has improved upon the UFC formula greatly, although plenty of the modes still feel shallow. The career mode has been pushed to the side (literally) and rightfully so as it’s the most lackluster campaign available. It once again brings TUF to the start of your career, but fails to replicate what makes the show entertaining. It’s more rewarding to play through the online-centric Championship mode despite it relying heavily on card packs and RNG pulls.
It's easier to forgive EA Sports UFC 2's shortcomings when the game's fight action is solid, understandable and enjoyable. Even if some of its components are more difficult than others, the streamlining and simplification of takedowns and transitions is a pivotal change that frees the game without making it pointlessly easy.
