Career mode preview/playthrough

http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/979/979450p1.html

looks very good to me

Still unsure if you can fight at two weight classes though (like Vera, Franklin and Hendo)

So it look like you can't fight online until you retire the fighters career, which I assume means you can't continue adding stats. So my question is, how long after the game comes out do we have before the league officially starts.

Somewhat related. Do we have to use the same fighter every time or can we make as many created fighters as we want as long as they are in the same weight class? Because it would be nice if I could really cram and get a fighter to be passable for the league and fight with him for a while until I have time to max out another fighter.

Apparently the career mode is around 10 hours of game play which to me is a little disappointing but at least will speed up the start of the online league.

Hmmmm I wonder if it's like THQ's wrestling games where you go through a year in about 10 years, but it resets after the year and you can keep adding to your stats?

The game comes out a week later in Europe anyway so no need to rush things.

I wish were using real fighters for the league. It just seems like everyone is going to have maxed out characters which takes the drama out of "styles make fights".

Well in all fairness,

I think it's better with user created fighters because one will not complain about having a fighter with less stats than the other.

Then again people don't have the same preference between wrestling, jiu jitsu, kick boxing, etc, etc. So yes, styles will make fights.

IMO, we will all create our perfect fighter and it will correspond better than the actual roster.

OFC I would want to pick Anderson Silva in MW and own everyone, but again it would be a little unfair for those who have a fighter with stats of 80 ;p

Interesting video, I really like the dynamics going into this game, and in regards to someone who said people would be running around with characters who have all their stats maxed, I highly doubt they'll give you that many points to distribute.
