I have to sya, this game is really growing on me. Career mode is above and beyond better than Undisputed's. Haven't tried out anything else yet but I am loving it.

What system?

The thing that sux for me on this game is I don't have the rumble function on my controller. So it's next to impossible for me to block ground transitions and just forget about choke subs I can't find the sweet spot withouth the rumble function. So I have to fight my way back to the feet as soon as I get taken down or just have to go strait for a limb sub. Getting prety good at stand up though.

Online, being on your back against someone who knows what they're doing almost means a guaranteed loss.

This game isn't exactly casual gamer friendly. It's hard to find an opponent online that is of your skill level. The only reason you can always find an opponent easily is because of "quick match" where they set you up with a random player. That's where the problem is. They set you up with a random player that potentially has over 1000 fights under their belt with an impressive resume. That isn't the most fair fight if you have a mediocre record. That wouldn't be such a bad idea if you had the option to quit the game before it started, but when they choose a player for you, they don't show you the players fight record until the fight is loading. They just show you their screen name.

A lot of people just say "Oh that's no big deal, it's a learning experience for you.", but it's hard to learn a lot when they just take you down and finish you in under a minute. Instead of just using that excuse, why couldn't they set a lobby mode like most games have and give you the option to choose a certain skill level before entering them? That way, you will know that you're not going to fight a guy with a record of 1500 wins and 45 losses. They have a prize fighting lobby, although that is always empty. I've seen many games utilize different types of lobbys. Usually have a rookie lobby, a mediocrity lobby, and a legend lobby. Just random examples of names that could be used. This shouldn't be a game where only excellent players can enjoy the online features.

Once in a while you will get to fight a guy with a similar record as you, and that's when it gets fun. Win or lose, it's almost always a competitive fight.

I guess the one good thing about this is, I've beat a few guys with impressive records and that puts a smile on my face because I know I'm not exactly a beast at playing this game.

Anyone else know where I'm coming from?

Still playing this game...

I've played both Undisputed and EA MMA, and much prefer the EA game. Too bad it's looking like there won't be a second game... competition is always good and EA put out a solid game with their first attempt.

The impossible achievement was a lot easier than expected. Then again, I only play on legend difficulty now when I'm not playing online.

I don't play online often, but I've gotten better now that I've established the jab pretty well. I sort of take a page out of Nick Diaz's book and pepper players to set stronger combos up. I almost never shoot for a take down just because they are so easy to stuff and it allows your opponent to take a dominant position on the ground most of the time.

Yeah it is prety easy I was able to ko fedor with Ken shamrock in the first round on legend difficulty. As long as I don't get taken down I am ok. Just keep dashing to avoid the punches and hit him with body shots which takes away his stamina while hurting him.

Old thread but.

Really pissing me off that the game won't pronounce the name of my new guy 'Buck Adell' even though both his first and last names are picked from the game's own list.

Only Lenny Hardt will say his name, everyone else calls him 'player fighter.'

He looks exactly like Liddel too...

In game, Mauro and Frank call him Adell.

I still play this game all the time, but what killed it was definitely the lack of polish. Not having your announcers able to pronounce the official names is just one example of how this game just felt unfinished.
