MMA Role Playing Games

Anyone played any good MMA RPGs? I've been looking around and found limited options.

S!O!S!
Full Impact MMA

Has anyone tried either of these? If so, were they any good?

For that matter, has anyone tried MMArmy? I couldn't get it to work, but that might just be my computer.

I've been messin around on mmarmy for a little bit and its pretty neat. Make sure you have the newest versions of flash and everything and it should work.

MMArmy is a bit strange for the first days after registering, I couldn't play it, then it suddenly worked. But it is really fun. I haven't heard of the other two sites though.

Might have to go back into MMArmy a few more times then. It didn't seems to do anything, and training seems pointless. I ordered the other two games, they're pen and paper types and pretty cheaply priced (does anyone besides me even play these anymore?) The one says they may go online. I'll post my findings.

Army is really cool. I am not that great so my camp is 4-7. I understand it now and hope to be really good.

Been playing with S!O!S! and Full Impact, both are pretty cool, but really different.

They're both dice rolling games, not quite like other role playing games (D&D etc). You take your characters and fight matches, but don't have to pretend to be the fighter.

For $10, SOS has 100 premade guys from all eras of MMA history, they even have Bruce Lee lol. The system is kinda complex with lots of charts but most action based on 1d6. A little limited, but fun as all the guys seem to be built in a realistic fashion. I put Liddell vs Silva and funny enough, it ended the same as the real fight. It comes in a word file via email.

For $15, Full Impact MMA, I like it a bit better as the game has a bit more to it, you can improve your fighters as they win fights and there's a pretty neat injury system. Their game is also different in that you make your own fighters, while SOS has them all there. The combat system is based on 2d6 which makes things a bit more exciting (more moves!) It comes in a PDF file via email.

I made myself in the Full Impact game and set up a random tournament, lost to their version of Liddell, got my ass knocked out in 3 moves.

These are more for getting together with friends to play, but both seem ok to play alone too. I think the Full Impact is going to offer an email league, or so their forum says. But its pretty empty right now.

For anyone into RPGs, I recommend them both, but am leaning toward Full Impact myself.

That looks cool too. They run tournaments on the forum? Thanks for the share! I also recently bought World of Mixed Martial Arts from Greydog, but I'm not too impressed with it. Just a bunch of text and no real game to it.

I've got a question about the MMArmy game - how long after sparring/fighting, can you do sparring again?
