In G.O.A.T. Career Mode, players can build fight hype to gain fans, earn cash to train at new gyms, and create heated rivalries with other fighters to capture the world's attention. How you promote outside of the Octagon matters as much as how you perform inside of it as you progress to becoming the Greatest of All Time. In addition, an all-new suite of customizable multiplayer modes let you and your friends get into the Octagon and face off in fast, fun, intense bouts where a highlight-reel knockout is always one strike away and victory can happen in the blink of an eye.

EA Sports UFC 2 still isn’t fully where the series should be at by now, but it’s a step in the right direction. The lack of compelling modes really hurts the product, especially considering how THQ was able to put out games with more variety to them. The overall gameplay has been improved substantially from last year’s outing, but striking still feels rough around the edges. Die hard mixed martial arts fans will find some fun here, but also some disappointment after they play enough exhibition matches.
EA’s first foray into UFC lays the groundwork for an amazing follow-up. The visuals are stellar, and the controls, while overly complicated, at least bring all the complexity of the sport with them. With a more robust career mode, some tweaked controls and a few more modes, EA could turn this into another pillar title for their sports lineup. As it stands today, UFC is a title that only the most die-hard fans are going to want to take the time to invest in.
UFC 3 is a lot like real fighting in the sense that the player must be intimately familiar with their strengths and weaknesses, and introduce new techniques by focusing on them one at a time, fight to fight. It requires a lot of losing to git gud. The demands may be tough, realistic and even admirable, but they effectively restrict the player to a single fighter or mode they know best, if they want to have any success or feel like a winner.
