If it controls as naturally as FNR4, then this will be THE MMA game, IMO...

i doubt it'll be as popular tho, purely based on the lack of big names.

Which is sad, really, if you care about the SPORT. There are some big names in there though. I didn't like the UFC game because it felt clunky- what I want is a game that feel natural and smooth, unlike the robots with fighter likenesses in UFC...

Agreed. To have a go at being Mark Kerr or Vitor Belfort (should they choose to include them) would be awesome. The trick would be capturing their unique dynamics; Vitor was quick and fast, especially with his fists, but lacked stamina, Mark Kerr was huge and very powerful, but tended to lunk about. If they can nail these kind of things then yes, this will hit UFC for six.

FN's career modes have been utter dogshite, I hope they learned the lessons from those to use in this which will then see their way into the announced FNC for next year (I won't be buying this as I have no interest in MMA).

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (5 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (5 Hours ago)
