EA SPORTS UFC3 revolutionizes fighting movement with Real Player Motion Tech, a new gameplay animation technology that delivers the most fluid and responsive motion ever. Every punch, kick, block, and counter has been recaptured and rebuilt on cutting-edge animation tech to look and feel life-like and responsive, delivering the most strategic, competitive fighting experience in franchise history. 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.

Overall, EA Sports UFC 3 is a great game let down by some modes that just don't entertain as much as they should. If you have the patience to click through menu after menu or grind for cards then this is undoubtedly the best UFC game ever made. But if you want to fight without having to do busywork you're likely to end up abandoning the career and Ultimate Team modes to focus on those that just let you enjoy the crisp controls, accomplished graphics and exciting combat. Then, you're sure to be dazed by EA Sports UFC 3's authenticity.
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.
Ultimately (ah-ha-ha!) here’s the thing: for all the trash-tweeting and angry interviews and staredown tomfoolery that surround it, mixed martial arts is about fighting, and if the fights weren’t any good, nobody would care. It’s the same with UFC 3, and the annoying truth is that UFC 3’s fights are half-brilliant, half going-through-the-motions. If you’re prepared to put the time into developing a solid sprawl-and-brawler for online play, or you can put up with the grappling mode (or, inexplicably, enjoy it), you’ll have a great time.
