5 Reasons Why EA Sports UFC 2 Could Be The Best MMA Video Game Ever


I'm not going to lie to you: I really, really enjoyed the first EA Sports UFC. Sure, it lacked substance, modes and depth. But the moment-to-moment gameplay was incredibly satisfying. Getting a takedown and knocking somebody had never felt that good. That's why I got excited when I heard EA Canada is making a new UFC game, set to be released on March 15, 2016. Upon further research, my anticipation level has gotten much higher. Seriously, I believe EA Sports UFC 2 could be the best MMA game ever. Here are 5 reasons that back my statement up:

5. More Polished Experience


As I said, EA Sports UFC's biggest asset was the fact that the game played like a charm. Well, the folks at EA Canada have been working extra hard to improve the gameplay experience. A new physics-driven knockout system, an improved grappling game and a greater control over your fighter’s head movement. Overall, the fights feel more fluid and realistic.


4. Amazing Graphics


The second reason why I think EA Sports UFC 2 will be a monumental MMA game is that it looks great! Fighters look like their real life counterparts, cuts and blood look fantastic. But the little things are the ones that truly impress me. The presentation looks exactly like the actual UFC events. The camera shots, the logos and on-air looks, the commentary, the octagon, the sponsors, the clothing. It all looks like the real thing, helping get immersed in the experience.


3. More Modes


That was the main problem I had with the last games. You could play exhibition matches, career mode and online. That was pretty much it. Thankfully, EA Canada has fixed the mistake. UFC 2 will launch with many modes, including a deeper career mode, a brand new Ultimate Team mode, a violent KO mode, a custom event creator, online matches and championships, and even a live event mode in which you get to predict upcoming UFC matchups.


2. Biggest Roster To Date


Building upon the considerable roster of fighters in EA Sports UFC, this time around there will be even more talent to choose from. From new comers like CM Punk, to legends like Chuck Liddell and the current batch of UFC Superstars, you'll have more than 200 guys and gals at your disposal. You can also get some surprising fighters like Mike Tyson, if you pre-order the game.


1. Overhauled Ground Game


Finally, EA Sports UFC 2 could be one of the best MMA video games ever because the ground game has been overhauled. The endless marathons of spinning the right stick in every possible direction are over, thanks to an all-new grappling assistance display. Visual aids help you with ground game transitions, submissions, takedowns and much more, all in real-time. This should result in intense ground battles, and even more excitement.
