Could it be because Undisputed was released first, had a marketing push (EA didn't) and recognizable fighters would it
Umm no. I'm talking about the opinions of people who actually played EA MMA and Undisputed. It's sales numbers tanked because it is an awful game. The game doesn't even sell right now and used it's 4.99. New it's 9.99.
I have finished two careers and have never saw a dashing takedown (I know it's a special move) used by the comp. I doubt that my 100 rank TDD would not be able to stop it however, but I cannot say for sure because I haven't experienced it. You can dash away (left or right) though and movement is a big part of the game. If you are right that you cannot stop it then obviously that's broken and would need to be fixed, I agree.
It wouldn't stop it and it auto targets. SO if you take steps either way it corrects your course.
Your opinion is that the fighters were gliding, and I disagree, I dont think they glide at all but that's strictly my opinion.
No it's not. It's something every critic complained. Every player has complained about and it's quiet obvious.
The only time you have to hold more than one button is when you throw a body kick, and that's two buttons and the joystick, not three buttons. Otherwise to throw a leg or head kick you hold down one button (left trigger) and use the joystick.
It's three if you want to throw a power kick since you have to hold the power modifier button.
They used the WWE system (gamewise) and though the grappling system certainly can use some work, it's not that bad either. EA MMA really shines in fluidity and stand up (joystick movements own button mashing) IMO but can use some improvement. Undisputed had three games that came out, EA had one so in reality it's like comparing NBA live '12 to NBA 2k 9. I'm sure they'll fix many of the holes that plagued the first game. I haven't played Undisputed 3 yet so I can't really comment besides looking at the trailer, but has anything really changed since Undisputed 1? Still looks like the same game touched up graphically from the trailer.
Neither game used a wrestling grappling system. EA doesn't make any wrestling games that I am aware of and THQ didn't use the same system or engine for Undisputed that it does for the WWE games.
And the kicks were not fluid. AT all. looked like the character was having a seizure or taking a dump every time he threw a kick.
So you haven't played Undisputed 2010? It's a vast improvement over 2009 and Undisputed 3 looks like it's going to be just as big an improvement over 2010. It plays much smoother. The clinch work and ground game are extremely technical as they are all joystick and not button mashing. They used joystick for head movement and now defensive movement on the ground in the new one.
I haven't notice gross cases like that, but I'll check out his stats, if true then I agree with you.
Check them out. According to EA MMA Shamrock has the same level submission game as Roger Gracie while King Mo has never trained it in his life.
If you were only rocked twice that means to me that you used an exploit formula(a hole in the game), because it's hard for me to believe that in a 50 fight career (I thought career's were only 40 fights?) that you would only be rocked twice. Don;t know if you entire post is an exaggeration with some truth to it or if we played the same game here. BTW I am no novice to gaming myself and have been playing games since atari.
No exaggeration. The game just isn't hard. We did play the same game but we definitely don't have the same POV on it. Since you actually enjoyed it. I did too for about the first ten fights and then it got sad real quick. And the career may have been 40 fights but I was thinking fifty for some reason. Could be wrong there.
Also on the "entire gaming world agrees with me" is pretty much like saying "MW is the best FPS and everyone in gaming agrees" which would be wrong. Many gamers and critics liked EA MMA and many liked Undisputed. Both got good marks it share of it's supporters. Saying it's a bad game would mean most of the gaming world agrees that it is a bad game, which wasn't the case.
It is a bad game. Was it more fluid in it's animations than Undisputed? Yes. Was it more fluid in movement? No. Does it have better, more in depth skill based gameplay? Not at all. EA MMA is - at best - an arcade view of mma. Quick, easy to master, and with virtually no replay value.
And, McKeever, do you ever actually add anything besides a pervading sense of asshatishness to any conversation? Did I ever say the game was more fluid than Fight Night? Hell no. The Fight Night games are some of my favorites. I love the joystick style controls for it. I love the gameplay but EA MMA is no Fight Night. I can play the Fight Night games again and again but I won't even play EA MMA for free at this point. And I don't think I know games better because I work with games. I use that as my reason for having played so many different games since I get to play them for free. You assumed everything else.
Honestly, I don't see how any one with a pair of eyeballs can say that UFC Undisputed doesn't have clunky, robotic movement mechanics and that the movement in EA MMA sucks.
Maybe pop down to specsavers deadman?
Jesus the fact that you think that video looks good is a sad , sad thing. The kicks look like they land with all the force of a slight breeze and the punches are slow. The movement looks awful. Like they are sliding across ice. Seriously no living creature moves like that. The only thing that looked good was the flying knee. Everything else was crap.
I don't see how you can say that whole eyeballs comment with literally laughing at yourself.
